Thanks!

Hi,

My previous Pb278q did this, I returned it. My 2nd one, which I'm using now doesn't have this problem. Rma it

Thank you for the reply, the only way to identify if it's light bleed to ips glow is to step 2 feet away and look straight at it, that's how I took the pictures, if I took them up close it would look much worst with ips glow involved since it moves when I move my head. It seems that most of this model has the same light bleed pattern.

Hello everyone, I've been looking to buy a 1440p display for a while now and this seems to be what I'm looking for, there's also quite a bunch of threads about whether this or Dell's 2713HM is better, which is the other I'm considering, but there seems to be some QC problems with the Dell with some having a yellowish tint (which I can't stand).and ghosting issues.

What worries me about this display is the PWM issue with the backlight, I'm unable to go see it in person as I'll be ordering it online, is it really noticeable? I don't know if people are blowing this out of proportion or not, which kinda pushes me back from this monitor and makes me want to get the Dell (since it's 20-50€ cheaper).

I'll be using the monitor mainly for gaming and web browsing,

Also, I'll probably have to mess with the PPI settings on windows so I can read text comfortably without having to get closer, does changing the PPI settings to make the text/windows appear bigger reduce the image quality as if I was downscaling?

I don`t know what PWM issues your talking bout, perhaps flickering, the only thing I am worried about in this monitor is the minor backlight bleed which seems to be present in all IPS panels apart from that I cannot see any other issue, it was perfect out of the box and never failed or anything happened to it, I have been using it for about 9 months now and still surprises me with the amount of details and beauty in games.
I would personally go with asus, since their quality assurance seems to be higher, of course there is always defective units but I have never bought an asus product with major problems.
you may also consider the more premium Samsung SB970 1440p but its about double the price from the asus.
anyway if you can find one in a store if the price is not very different and test for your self, even if you buy one test it there for light bleeds and anything that worry you. so you don`t have to go through long RMAs and endless communications, even if the store is abit far, so you can rest assure you went home with a perfectly good unit, this way if something appears you can reject the unit and get another one right there in the store.
anyway congrats in advanced and good luck, your so gonna be thrilled with the clarity smile.gif

Pull the trigger when you find a great deal on this monitor. I purchased mine for under $500 shipped, it was technically used but basically in open box form. All the plastic was still on the monitor and had only been used for a couple weeks. This monitor is beautiful...just dont play COD:Ghosts on it. I say that jokingly as that game looks like complete poop even with it maxed out. Now BF4 looks amazing on this monitor and the detail is awesome! There is zero ghosting and the PWM is nothing to worry about. I did a lot of research on the PWM issue and it seems its only an issue for a very small amount of people were there eyes are easily strained. Other than that it shouldn't affect you. All in all this is the best monitor I have owned and for the price you can't beat it. Yes you can get one of the Korean monitors but personally I feel like i would be buying a Hanns-G or some garbage like that. I would rather pay a couple extra dollars and have a company like ASUS who will actually back their product if any issues arise.

Hey sorry I haven't replied in a long time.

The strobing likely means you over clocked it too high, then that strobing is called artifacting. Take it down to 80 and 75 and 70 incrementally to see when that goes away. Pm me or whatever if you have any questions.

I have to agree with headon that the quality is amazing especially coming from 1080p. I recently bought one as well off of ebay auction for $325 only because seller said it was in perfect cosmetic and functionally. When it arrived it was as the seller described even all the original packaging, paperwork and accessories.
Not even registered but I did have to send it in for repair just due to one of the OSD buttons did not work at all. But once I got it back from asus on warranty repairs, has been amazing with no issues at all. Have it setup next to my 27'inch samsung 1080p and every time I use them together I find myself very pleased to have chossen the 1440p over 1080 at 120hz. Like many others I can not go back.

Would you by chance have any idea why monitor won't overclock at all? Im on windows 8.1 pro x64 and have 2x r9 290x's.

absolutely agree. i used to consider the 1440 rage as a new era of delusional nerd-elitism. it is not. 1440 is fantastic.
