I musta had crap catleaps, cause mine took forever it seemed to turn off from a dead off.
(Note the monitor does come on instantly but displays acer logo, I'll go through the menu see if I can turn it off.

For now my camera is dead so have some potato quality cell phone images.


Note the cellphone shot of the IPS glow in the bottom right, is not nearly as bad as the phone made it out to be. But it'll give you a good idea what I mean by the lower right having more glow than not.




Dead pixels are hard to see.








And also:

OMG I have missed you soo 144hz..... Just going around windows makes me warm and fuzzy inside.


All in all, besides the monitor with 3 dead pixels (Which is now set to one of my surround monitors) I'm pretty happy with the monitor soo far.

Will play some games with it some and see if I can get 140 fps video with my gopro.

http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ used this site to check the monitor, from just using my eyes to verify everything turned out almost perfect after lowering the monitor's brightness down a bit. (A lot)
VS the trouble I went through to get catleaps calibrated properly, this monitor feels like it has a better image.

And the AG coating is minimal like others have stated.


The backglow was also reduced after I lowered brightness but is still noticeable if you play in pitch black games all the time.

I'm not sure the Order number really means anything. I got XX5144. Unless they jump number, I doubt 100 people ordered between me and you. It may just be arbitrary, though I hope I'm wrong.

On what background color do you notice the dead pixels best and are thry just dark or glowing in a constant color?

@dragon- sad to hear that 2 got dead pixels. Good thing you ordered 3, so at least u can enjoy one while the other 2 get rma'd.

Ye the power led is ultra bright on the acer. Its really noticeable in a dim room in the evening. In fact the power led is so strong that it causes the bottom right area on the monitor to glow.

I hope we can turn it off through service menu or smth.
two dead pixels visible on all colors but black, and two stuck(red color) on black

1 monitor has 3 dead pixels, 2 in the lower right and 1 in the upper left, these are real close to the edge and normal sitting distance of about 2 feet they are unnoticeable unless you are trying to notice them.

2nd monitor has 1 dead pixel, again in lower right corner.

3rd monitor no dead pixels.

All 3 monitors have normal IPS backglow (Comparable to the Catleaps), the monitors have a more noticeable backglow in the lower right corners, as was brought up earlier, it might be due to the buttons, but its really the only backglow that could be bothersome.

From being off, the monitors turn on within about 3 seconds, faster than most monitors, way faster than catleaps.

Monitors quality feels good, aside from the dead pixels which I will try to remedy, they really are only noticeable on bright red or bright green backgrounds, I for some reason cannot see them on all white.

The stand is excellent, one of the best I've had in awhile.
so are u going to return the two with dead pixels?
