Overclockers are offering a pixel garentee with the monitor, a single dead one and they will swap it out so when scan issue my refund if I get another it will be from OCUK

Yeah, I did seriously consider returning it. But having seen so many people in here showing really bad IPS glow and bleed I don't want to risk sending this back and getting something worse in exchange. A single, tiny, black dot in the bottom right that I only notice on bright, single colour patches I can ignore. Bright glowing splotches all over that show up in games I cannot ignore.

It still looks pretty bright on camera: maybe it's my phone but it does not appear that bright in person. What I'm happy about is the consistency though: In games I can tweak the settings to make it look good because there's no awful glow in the corners that I can see.

Yes, consistency and uniformity are most important. Always better to have one dead pixel you than excessive glow or bleed. I'm not sure if I could live with one dead pixel though smile.gif This one looks good, even on that video it looks ridiculously bright. It is a pure black background you have used ? I guess it's not iPhone right ?

Know what you mean man but don't you notice it every time you use the monitor now? I did with mine, was well annoying!

Here's a better video: https://youtu.be/tD-0aey84fI

Maybe I'll lower my chair; that might put me in a better position biggrin.gif

Let me know of the results! Side-by-side comparison of PG278Q and PG279Q could certainly push me to buy the latter!

I watched and I have mixed feelings, it seems to me that the game is not very smooth. There are three options: I'm tired, the monitor isn't fast or the quality of the recorded video.

the most important is that you are happy with your monitor smile.gif

Huh? It's 30FPS, what smoothness do you expect from that :-)

Of course. I have a feeling the AG coating is going to bother me with the 8Q, but I'll let my eyes decide

Pretty scary so many people opting to keep monitors with dead pixels & dirt etc. just because they fear of getting a more defective one!

ASUS NEW SLOGAN... "IF YOUR NEW ROG GEAR IS DEFECTIVE KEEP IT CAUSE THE EXCHANGE MAY BE WORSE"
FINE PRINT.... Besides our customer service is horrendous

Just read this in their press release for new IPS monitors
About Asus
ASUS has more than 16,000 employees around the globe with a world-class R&D team of 5,200 engineers. Company revenue for 2014 was approximately US$14.5 billion.

world-class R&D team? 5200 engineers and not one of them bothered to mention to the buying department they invested in the crappiest panel on the market???
