Three other things to check that come to mind.

1) Look for uneven screen back light bleed. All monitors have some, just make sure it doesn't have a lot. Test this on a black screen.

2) What gets me every time so far on this monitor is the dark smudge mark on the bottom right hand corner. If you don't readily notice it, and can live with it (many just live with it), then your good.

3) Look for faint horizontal lines in the matte finish. They should not be noticeable. If they are, try another one, because I had one that definitely did not have this.

Check pixel inversion (see one of my post above how to do it). Then check screen uniformity and backlight bleed. You should have none or very minimal bleed and I suppose you will have some gama/color shift and pixel inversion which is typical for this panel. But if you are ok with TN technology, this monitor is great for you. I've just returned mine today because I was not impressed by TN panel. It's not for some serious work, only for gaming...

Sounds like you'd be better off with the PG279Q or XB270HU.

I checked it on a full black, white, red, blue, and yellow screen to look for anything that looked funny. Backlight bleed was there a small bit on the black screen, and during normal use I had no hope of noticing it. I couldn't find any weird pixels during the color tests either.

The smudge seems like a weird problem, ill have to check for that when I get home. I feel like the horizontal line would have been noticed since I was looking for stuff like that specifically. Could you possibly send me a link of examples of these two problems?

Yes, exactly. I like Asus much more but they are still not available in my country. So I wanted to try g-sync and did not want to wait until available. I'm a bit afraid of that lottery again, I had a luck with PG278. No dead pixels nor bleed. But pixel inversion and TN technology - especially for 27"+ panels made me to return it. IPS is much better bet despite possible IPS glow. Actually I can't see a reason why anyone would want to buy older TN panel. The angles are poor, even from your ideal sitting position you can see gama/color shift. It is very distracting for work in desktop. However, in games it is not noticeable. So for pure gamers yes, but for anyone else not.

On my model from June 2015 I haven't experienced any problems you've mentioned. Only gama/color shift which is typical for any TN panel and pixel inversion - I think this is also typical for Swift.

Consider yourself lucky! Perhaps models after May 2015, may have fewer dark smudges. Where did you get it from? If you don't mind me asking.

I got both of mine from Amazon. The 2nd one I can't replace because they discontinued selling it due to QA issues. Then they listed it again as available in about a week. As of today, there is no return date to be in stock by Amazon! You can only get it through them via some 3rd party Amazon fulfillment for a lot more money.Ugh, time to try another retailer if I want to try again...

Hi,

after reading a lot of posts here I will contribute. First I got was made in 07/2015. It didnt have dead pixels or dark smudge. But it had noticeable back light bleed on bottom right corner. As I play mostly dark games such as Alien Isolation or Soma it was very distracting (dark games are one of the reasons why I didnt buy newer variant with IPS because of IPS glow), so I have returned it.

Today I unpacked one made in 05/2015. No dead pixels or back light bleed. But in the bottom of very right corner I have very small dark smudge, it about 50 cent coin size. I can live with that and I hope it will not get worst.

So I guess it is all about luck and lottery. Doesn't matter what is the manufacture date. About that date if some one is wondering. It was like serial number starting with

Year 2014 E:

E9 (September)
EA (October)

Year 2015 F:

F5 (May)
F7 (July)

The smudge only seems to only be present with certain colour and brightness combinations. In many cases it is not visible, unless you have a fairly plain background.

I generally only notice it if I'm working on a spreadsheet or doc etc with a plain white background. If playing a game etc it is not visible.

I bought it here https://www.alzashop.com/

But I can honestly say, there were no smudges anywhere. But the reason I've returned it I just did not like TN panel technology. For me the color/gama shift and poor angles were distracting for normal work in desktop. Also noticed pixel inversion on test screens but never in games so this was not a problem for me. Otherwise it was a great monitor and was a bit sad to return because I had no major issues. Very minimal bleed and no dead pixels or dust.

Now I'm waiting for PG279Q. Hopefully they will improve their QC with next batches.
