Yeah, must be a driver issue.

However, sometimes it only turns on while in-game and other times it's on all the time which is wierd. I hope they sort it out to be consistent whether it's on all the time, or just active in-games.

Actually, I'm not sure Nvidia will actually fix this, as I read that they purposely made it like this. Whether or not that's still true, I don't know, but last I read, Nvidia doesn't plan on fixing this and it's as by design now.

Also, I'm still using the TN Rog Swift, so not sure if that matters or not. But I imagine the behavior would be the same across both the IPS and TN Rog Swift's.

As for me, my red LED light is on all the time. It never turns off unless I manually turn it off.

So where can you buy this monitor right now? I only see the FreeSync version on Amazon, not the Gsync one.

Interesting. But shouldn't the g-sync module being active 24/7 increase the heat?

No clue if there is increased heat. Mine seems relatively cool and is not hot. It's more like lukewarm.

Depends on your location.

Alright then. Thanks for the info, dude. I'm just being cautious, because it isn't a cheap monitor and I plan to have it until DP 1.3 at least.

Gave you a +rep. thumb.gif

So, can anyone who owned both compare them? TN and IPS now in regard to speed? smile.gif Really interested...

Guys who have 279, can someone test pixel inversion? Just look at this image and start move your browser window or scroll in horizontal direction (left/right). If there is pixel inversion the squares will flash in pink and green colors. It's pretty obvious. If you scroll vertically this issue is not present. Thx.

Good to hear some people are getting good monitors here with only a small amount of backlight bleed.

I think the first batch here in the UK might be a bit hit and miss, I don't know that I want to risk getting a replacement from the same supplier.

I'm going to speak to them when they open in 20 minutes to find out if I can RMA it. Will probably get refund and have a think
