Brightness 100% + Black Background

The glow is unavoidable, but it does subside somewhat at least.

It honestly doesn't even look that bad in person, tim. It's worth mentioning that I did a pixel test and I didn't have a single dead pixel. That makes me believe that the QC passed print on the box is a pixel test they've done.

I'll take my time and examine the monitor further to the best of my ability.

Nice you seem to have a good one, without cursing it, have fun biggrin.gif. I know some will scream that's terrible without realising how over exposed images of IPS monitors look or how the glow is affected by the cameras angle compared to the gate of the pixel and so accuse the corners of BLB.

To be fair, there might be some BLB on the corners. However, it's mostly glow.

Edit: Also, yes, it is indeed over exposed and look nothing like it in person.

Yeah top right corner might have a bit of contact force bleed.

If the seal was broken, then it was definitely opened already. Would send it back immediately. They've ripped you off and sent you a return. Just came at home with 278q and there are seals from both sides of the box - not broken. Will report back how it is like.

Yes, definitely, right top is bleed but not a big one. Camera exaggerates like crazy. You could try to take short video and make a screenshot from it. It will be closer to reality. Btw, just arrived at home with 278q, will post some impressions later. First good thing is that seals are not broken...

Btw, does anybody know how I can find manufacturing date?

That's what I thought, although it's weird considering they sent the monitor the very day they first stocked them. Perhaps a return from physical store if they have any...
I'm going to ask them for a replacement while letting them know that I got a return and would like a brand new monitor the next time. If second monitor is bad too I'll just give up.
It's sad that TN variants are almost tempting at this point, I'd rather have glow in the corners than vertical color shift across the entire screen, but so far these panels are not looking great.

I got the same kind of transparant tape around the opening of the box as well. Could they have opened it for QC? The monitors have just been released, it doesn't add up with us getting used monitors.....
I'm going to call the store tomorrow and ask them just in case.


Edit: The transparant tape says Asus on mine and I saw images on new boxes with the same tape.
