What kind of problems should I look for on this monitor, the base has about a 1/2" x 1mm scratch on it, besides that it looks perfect. And it's beautiful when I turned it on, played a bit of borderlands the pre-sequel, and I saw absolutely 0 backlight bleed or dead pixels

Do a google search on "asus rog swift pixel inversion". There have been some reported problems that could be visually described as a "screen door effect" on certain bright textures.

Here is a thread full of discussion on this topic:
http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?50004-PG278Q-vertical-stripes-esp-in-3D-mode
The thread title wording is misleading, but pages 3-10 seem to discuss the issue referred to as "pixel inversion". It seems that this problem is most apparent in 3D mode, but also persists in 2D mode.

There is a video example of this effect here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm7lNyv-frk&feature=youtu.be
You'll need to watch in 1080p to have any chance of seeing the effect. The "screen door" effect can be seen on the green name text as the user in the video moves back and forth.

Hopefully you aren't experiencing this, let us know what your monitor experience is like after reading about this.

Also, a scratch on the stand is nothing compared to some of the issues of "cloudy bright areas" or dead pixels that a handful of users have described. And pixel perfect too, you are lucky sir. I'd take a scratched stand any day as long as the screen performance is flawless.

I've been using my ROG Swift for days, and I've yet to witness any "pixel inversion" or any type of artifacts on the display. I've tried many different games as well. Once I replaced the stock DisplayPort cable that came with my Swift, it's literally been perfect.

First thing I'm doing when I get home is ripping this stand off and mounting it on my dual arm, then I'll check for pixel inversion

Can anyone post some of their ICC profiles or just general settings for brightness, gamma, and color adjustment?

Everyone keeps mentioning that the monitor is super bright out of the box, which is true. However I've lowered my brightness to 70 and I think anything lower than that would be too dim. I've seen some people set the brightness as low as 30. Unless of course, when gamma is adjusted a certain way it increases brightness as well?

My monitor looks great, but I don't have access to a colorimeter or a way to professional calibrate it. Can anyone give me a starting point that you've found works well so I can adjust from there?

I would recommend reducing the brightness in increments over the next week or two. If you are used to a high level of brightness from your previous monitor(s) a jump down to 30-50 will definitely seem too dim, but stepping down gradually you may find the lower brightness levels to your liking. I started at 70ish too and gradually stepped down by increments of 5-15 over 2 weeks and found I really like the brightness level at 45. Just something to consider.

I dont yet have my hands on one of these monitors but you can try the settings in this review
https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/asus-pg278q/

Brightness as always is personal preference, like i use 15 on my VG248QE and its plenty bright for me.

Don't look for any issues if you believe it to be perfect! Spare yourself the pain of knowing you found something as it will haunt you!

And since I was seeing it both before and after that patch, and in fact see it in every single game and even in desktop things like browser windows, I hope it's just something wrong with my display.

Now if only I can convince anyone else that it happens.
