I know three other people who got their PG279Q and they haven't had any issues with their monitors. I haven't tested enough to say that I don't have any issues myself, but so far I'm really happy with my purchase.
maybe not noticeable to a blind person, but for me i can't enjoy something when it's not perfect, but that's just me, we are all different, and for someone this would be ok, but me not ok.

You know for it's price it is not acceptable. As someone stated before, phones, tablets have much bigger resolution and barely suffer from dead/stuck pixel. This is just **** manufacturing and bad QC. I could tolerate in product for 150e but for 800 ?? You are pixel perfect, but if you would have one you'd say otherwise.

Btw, did you test the glow ? Night is comming smile.gif

Guys, can somebody please explain why those f*kng review sites get hardware for their reviews directly from manufacturers, thus encouraging cheating by allowing each manufacturer to choose and send them the best of the best example for testing, like the monitor without bleeding?

Why review sites cannot just buy hardware from a regular online shop, then test it for 2 weeks, and then return it back to shop reclaiming their money, as a 2-week return is allowed in EU?

In this case they will get 100% random retail sample for testing where all the drawbacks will be seen, and they won't lose any money because of return policy.

Just pushed the button on this little baby, but instead of the normal rush that accompanies the purchase of such a high end piece of equipment... I felt a bit nervous.
Is this what buying monitors has come too? Crazy.

Tried the Predator XB270HU on launch day in April from Scan.
It looked like this....



They refused to accept this as a fault so deducted £10 off my refund. Interesting to read a few pages back that CS said 'most' of their XB270HU's had this problem.

Tried two from Amazon last month. Both March panels. Both looked as though they had been kicked around the block for 6 months. Never want to see another Acer product.

The one good thing to come out of this was I'd bought an EVGA GTX 980 at the same time, only for a few days later the 980 ti to be announced. Unbelievable mad.gif
But..... I found out that EVGA had a 'Step Up' program and they swapped my 980 for a 980ti for not much more than the postage costs. Awesome service.

So now we wait....980 ti at the ready...

@reffrs- bc they usually get the new models before they get to retail stores. Plus sometimes I guess they are allowed to keep the test samples. Just my guess..

but thats nothing unusual, happens with new cpus too for example.

Dell, yes, but I'm afraid they use same panel as rog so it will be +/- the same. QC will be better for sure. So if I get ROG without issues I will keep it, if not I will return it and wait for Dell. IPS is not option for me because of that damn glow. In dark completely unusable.

Even though it's the same panel, it doesn't mean they go through the same inspection. As it seems, Dell displays seem to rarely have problems, as rare as samsung ones from my research. They might check and power the displays on before they buy them off.

It's pretty shady to buy things from stores and return. I guess that's what restocking fees are for.

But why would a reviewer want to lose money paying a restocking fee or even worse, pay a restocking fee and a shipping label for a big monitor.

I understand where you're coming from though.

As I said previously, the reviewers will not risk being alienated (and subsequently losing potential income) by a manufacturer in giving a scathing review. When have you ever seen a 4/10 or 3/10 on a monitor review for a big site? They will simply not risk it. How they get away with this without losing all credibility is to focus on the positives (there are always positives) and to keep pushing the monitor's statistics and potential. Sure they will point out the drawbacks but it's not going to end up with 1/5 rating or 'editors pants award'. They want to keep receiving new monitors to review as that is how they make their money.

Need some advice, someone wants to sell me a PG278Q for $500.00

He posted all the photos and guarantees it has no dead pixels. It's close to perfect. Should I bite if all this is true? I'm just worried about all these QC issues, and I guess I would save around $300 to $350.

I get to come and take a look at it as well.

They can't afford to purchase so many items even if they return them as they'd have to be constantly waiting for refunds, Also retailers would lose money as the item wouldn't be new so they can't resell it as new. Retailers don't ask for perfect parts it's marketing done by the manufacturer to increase sales.

My god that looks awful but yeah Scan told me that almost all of the Acer's they sold were returned.

It looks like a good specimen, I'd look around to see if you can find any more for sale that you can compare prices with. Also be sure to check everything over in person so be prepared.
