Indeed, the 1ms difference is irrelevant concerning this monitor. The benQ had pretty bad input lag. That was the reason i returned it.

I don't notice it at all and I'm usually picky about that. Been playing fps on one for about a month now. I guess people that actually can notice it at this level are used to playing at like 120fps and good TN panels too.

 

I do have some thing odd issue tho. I used my Spyder 4 pro to check the contrast on my BenQ GW2765HT's and they have a 550:1 ratio while the review on TFT Central shows them getting a 1000:1 contrast ratio. So, idk whats up with that, I think I need a better calibrator to read it more accurately. Colors and exposure are spot on with my prints, however, so it isn't really much of an issue as it is a peeve.

I don't notice any input lag with the BenQ either and I've had it for a couple months.

Either Barsh is being extremely picky/sensitive or maybe he had a bad monitor.

Saying it has really bad input lag makes it sound way worse than it probably is. I can't tell the difference between it and my TN

Well that is just what the review sites say, the majority of people don't have tools to measure the input lag themselves. It could be they improved it on later versions with firmware updates who knows.

For me numbers can only weigh so much, real world use needs to be factored in. Just because #'s say it has more lag than other screens, it doesn't mean it is actually perceptible in real world use cases.

Have any of you pb278q owners noticed backlight bleeding?

I didn't notice it until I was playing a game with a lot of very dark areas. It comes off slightly more pronounced in the picture than it is in reality at my desk, but this doesn't seem right for a 500-600$ monitor to me... I've done some looking around and it seems like its a common issue. Curious about if any of you have the same thing.

This is taken with an iphone6 camera no flash, pretty dark room, Splendid: standard mode, brightness set to 30 and contrast to 90. (using displayport)

Aside from dark times in movies/games its a great monitor, wondering if I should exchange it though.

As I've posted before it took me 4 exchanges to get one without a stuck bright pixel or severe backlight bleed. The one I settled on had an earlier manufacturer date 12/2014 opposed to 1/2015. The colors seem to be calibrated differently (cooler) and what little bleed it has is unnoticeable in dark scenes and the only glow you see when testing for it is whitish instead of yellow. I saw a couple people on Amazon complaining that the ones manufactured in 2015 have a dirty yellowish look to them.

Mine was manufactured in Oct. 2014. I'm taking it back today, exchanging it for another box of the same model, will update on it's replacement's backlight situation when I get it set up tomorrow.

The new one has the exact same backlight glow in the corners, mostly bottom right again. The retail store said I could return this again if it had the same issue. Could anyone here that got the benq comment on their backlight bleed/glow situation? Its the only other alternative in my price range and spec range for me in my region's retail stores (I prefer not to order online).

I'd probably be willing to sacrifice a few milliseconds of input lag and go with the BenQ if it means no backlight bleeding like the PB278Q's have. I was watching the last game of thrones episode and in the dungeon scenes which are pretty dark, its just so noticeable especially if you view the screen a bit off angle. PLS/IPS panels are supposed to have great viewing angles, but if I sit even a little bit to the left, the backlight glow in the bottom right corner gets even worse.
