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.

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!

Will keep that in mind. Thanks. +REP

monitor is bright indeed but if you lower the gamma from windows colour in control panel everything is good and it stacks at the start up with no problem my question is why they didnt add gamma slider in options of the monitor and its just brightness and contrast ?

Bought one of these back in August - 5 dead pixels, dark spots, and serious backlight bleed. Been waiting two months for stock and finally grabbed one Sunday from Newegg. It arrived today, using it now and the backlight is better, but I've got 6 dead pixels and dark spots in the middle and bottom right corner.

I'm done with this monitor.

Just got mine from Newegg. No bleeding or dead pixles. Setup was a charm. Really loving the monitor so far. Gsync and the 144 refresh rate are fantastic. Battlefield 4 is incredible on it.

My only gripe so far is missing the colors on my old 30" Apple Cinema Display.

Damn thats rough, i'd say give it another try when stock becomes a bit more plentiful so you can quickly get a new one. They can't all be bad since some have reported getting pixel perfect ones with minimal bleed

Got my display. The panel is nearly perfect. My only issue is that I can notice light flickering w/ GSYNC enabled and full screen apps. Not apparent in all apps but definitely in some.

I'm guessing the short supply is because a lot of these panels aren't passing QC or maybe they are changing something in the manufacturing? This is a shame that a ROG product with such a high price tag is having so many issues.

I got my display yesterday. At first all seemed great, no dead pixels, little if any backlight bleed, good uniformity. Then after a couple of hours a very bright spot began to appear in the center right third of the screen. As time went on it got really really bright. It's not a dead pixel, but rather looks like a hole or something in one of the layers of the screen, underneath the AG coating and everything. It's not like physical damage but some kind of weird manufacturing defect probably. This morning, after the monitor had been off all night, it was completely gone, but then started to come back in about 5 minutes. 30 minutes later it was as bright as ever.

I've head monitors with all types of issues before, but never something like this. I'm going to assume it's defective and I'll need to replace it, but thought I'd ask if there's any chance in hell I can do something to fix that.

Otherwise my second panel is coming from Newegg on Thursday. Who wants to bet it'll have dead pixels or bleed or some other issue that the first one didn't? lol.

I have a question. I am new to SLI and I have a second gtx 980 on the way. I was going to get 3 rog swifts (my first arrived today) but I am curious: do I have to plug all 3 display ports into the main 980 or can I just plug a monitor into whichever slot is available?

If you're using 2 monitors and just doing an extended desktop and still want to use sli, both monitors just be plugged into the same card, if you're doing sirius surround(3 monitors) you can plug the monitors into different cards
