Arrggghh i hate when somebody experiencing the problem(rog issue) it feels like heartbroken :-( what is your manufactured date sir? 4 months? Maybe august or july???

Anyway my rog swift will be deliver tomorrow :-) 1440p is so good even on browsing,youtube etc.. But the real bonus of this monitor is the performance so smooth of course with gsync. compare to other monitor with gsync its like ferrari(swift) vs mustang gt(other monitor with gsync) but with the engine failed T_T

Take one of the pattern and resize your browser, when the pattern covers less than 50% of the screen it may turn green. Example like this:

If you don't see the color change you are probably okay, even though not 100% guaranteed that is related to the screen door effect. Sadly I can only test it when I have the panel in front of me since my approach is less scientific, I run though a series of games to test for the pattern whenever I get a Swift, I have narrowed down several games in my library that will show me if the inversion problem is present.

Oh and don't worry about the flickering on the test pattern if it happens, most LCD panel will not pass those tests perfectly anyways.

Try our 'Test Settings' with the profile if you like (they were used to create the profile in the first place) but you're going to have to do some legwork yourself.

P.S. I agree it isn't clear that the ICC profile wasn't used for the review. I've made this clearer.

Thanks for that. I was just wondering if you use the .ICC do I put the RGB on 100% to use it?

You can do. It was created on our unit on top of the test settings (so RGB values were modified). But the modifications made to the channels were so slight that it shouldn't matter. You should adjust the colour channels according to the balance of your own unit - keep them at 100 if you like.

Patterns 1 to 4b cast the shadow from the nav bar on the left the rest patterns are unaffected.
I don't see any flickering on any pattern though. (144hz G-sync native res)

Edit:
Also upon digging the asus forums. Some ppl have this pattern turn green when you resize it. This does not happen on mine.

Then yes, you may indeed have one that is free from the pixel inversion issue that the earlier batch seem to suffer from, I can't say for sure though since I haven't tested the later batches myself yet. However if the pattern didn't turn green when you resize it, it definitely means there is an improvement on the panel, or that the problem is not systemic. Grats on your Swift. Not sure about the shadow you are talking about though, that could be another problem or "working as intended".

Earlier batch always turns green on that test for the ones I've tested.

I am still waiting for some later batches to hit the shelves to grab one again.

Manufactured in July and got it September. Upset that I spent $859 and it's not useable after 3 months.

Does anyone have Asus RMA experience? I hope I get cross shipment because not only do I use this for gaming but web development to pay the bills.

I just got my RMA back. I wasn't aware of Asus Cross shipment. Rep I spoke to didn't even tell me about the cross shipment.

As far as RMA process. They gave me prepaid shipping with Fedex which I also had to ask for. Sent it to California around Thanksgiving. Got it replaced within 2 weeks. They put a new serial number over the original but the manufacture date is November.

Everything is working fine as of now. But if you can I would definitely wait for Cross shipment if they don't have any stock available.

Check that link for some of the bad RMA experiences which had me nervous for a bit as well.

I submitted my RMA and requested an advanced cross shipment through the vip support so I'm waiting for a reply and info. I also emailed the director of support stating that only having a display for four months and it not functioning properly I requested a cross shipment or refund.

Hi all

Fresh new to owning rog swift.
Since i bought it I did have some issues. it seems like an EB seriers(November?)
Out of the box bezel had a nasty bulb on the left side and the whole left side is a bit more wobbly then right side.
After deciding to return it I started to mess with bezel and after applying some pressure it clicked back in and is now ok, top of the bezel has some smaller spacing from the screen.
Backlight bleed is there mostly from lower left but not really noticable.
I do not have other issues I can tell, but..

When i got it it was dark and I was using it on default brightness and contrast (80/50) since then Ive tried all Ive read here used tft, pcmonitor and asus icc profile with their respective settings, I tried lowering contrast as low as 15 and brightness to 0 but i still get considerable eye strain with it, it just doesnt feel right. All my combinations used rgb 100, after a while i used rgb setting to 75, 75, 75 and contrast 30, brightness 12 and it immediately seemed better,

my question is - does rgb user mode 75,75,75 is like choosing normal or cool or none of the above?

Anyone else having eye strain problems?
