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:
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:
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.Edited by sdahlbe - 10/21/14 at 11:41am
