Oooh your model is July 2015 and still has this problem, I also think all TN Swifts have it eek.gif.

I answer here to don't go off topic on the other thread wink.gif

The pixel inversion is easy to view in the windows taskbar when the pattern is grey, but when the pattern is green, the pixel inversion disappears.

Look my video with the lagom test, you can clearly see that the pattern changes color from gray to green, the pixel inversion appears in the whole screen (when the pattern is grey, but in the video you can not see), and not only in the window browser, but it's easier to view on the taskbar...



I could not focus on the taskbar because I haven't a macro lens, but in this thread it's clearly seen, go to test 3...

Yes, have exactly the same... Do you know if it TN technology or it is a Swift specific issue ? Because I can't believe Asus would not fix it yet. Still, this is the best TN panel I have ever seen. The truth is TN technology is just too much for > 27" screen. Color/Gama shift is just inevitable here... But it's fine I have tried it because now I know I like 1440p and 27". It's the sweet point and much better than 1080p an 23". So I will return this and go for a PG279Q.

Try open this in a new window and move the window ? Doesn't it change the colors to pink/green ? It is still grey???

Well, I have about had it with the Swift. As mentioned earlier. I returned my first Swift due to the smudge at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Got a 2nd one and it has the same problem (albeit perhaps about 30% less noticeable). On top of that, the 2nd Swift had a more aggressive matte finish than my first one, adding the noticeable faint horizontal lines that others have previously mentioned (my first swift did not have them..).

I went to go get another replacement on Amazon, and there was only a refund option. I contacted Amazon customer service, turns out Amazon discontinued selling the PG278Q due concerns over the quality of the item! They offered to give me a discount if I wanted to keep it, else I would have to return it and re-purchase it from the other seller on Amazon. Seems that not even Amazon will continue selling this model due to the QA issues.

I'm at wits end. Part of me wants to try a third time to get a good one. But since after learning that Dell is coming out with a TN g-sync (Dell S2716DG) I might try that one out first. At least Dell should have better QA, at least I hope! If that one doesn't work, maybe i'll jump to an IPS and deal with the glow; though, i'd rather stick with TN for the speed and non-glow for now until fast VA g-sync comes to fruition.
