My thinking was this...
I bought the Acer Predator on 29 April first weekend. Although the box looked tampered with the monitor was spotless and I doubt it had ever been switched on.
Everything about the Acer monitor was awesome. I'd never seen colors and clarity since CRT's.
BUT... there was a constant yellow glow in the bottom right corner that could be viewed from any angle, light or dark.

5 months later they dropped to £560 on Amazon, so I thought... maybe the later models were better.
The box was battered, the monitor looked worn and... get this... the manufacture date was MARCH!!!!! It was SEPTEMBER.
So... I'm guessing recycled.

I went for this monitor on the first day released (risky) but could almost guarantee it was not some others return.
I got a good one and its mint.
Lottery?
Time will tell.
Happy?
You bet.
It shouldn't be said at this price, but good luck everyone.

Wait... So does anyone know when we're getting this in the US?

I received my PG279Q a couple of days ago.

The glow and backlight-bleed is noticable but not that bad.
But I have a serious problem with a color temperature gradient, most noticable in grey and white images.
It's hard to capture on camera so I'll describe it.
When looking at a grey image (e.g. a website) the color on the left side of the screen has a yellowish/warm touch. The color temperature on the right side is rather cold/blueish.
Is this because of BLB or IPS glow? It's really uncomfortable to look at those images. I think I'm going to replace it.
But what causes this color irregularity?

Stupid question but you sure it is PG279Q and not older PG278Q? This color/gama shift is pretty common with TN panels. But IPS should be uniform across the screen from normal sitting position. This is the only thing I hate on TN Swift panel. So you've scared me a bit smile.gif

Any onther owner of PG can comment on this? I thought only TN panels had those problems.

Please post a link for an example image so we can test? I can't see anything odd with a pure white background.

Someone on another site mentioned this and his display port cable was not firmly inserted. It's a bit fiddly to get in and the if the cable tidy on the frame is used it does have a fair bit of strain. If not, suggest try another display port on the card.
Had a couple of flickers myself an hour ago but I'd just tidied all the cables after deciding to keep. Refit sorted it

I tried both DP and HDMI, image is not uniform.
You always notice cooler colors on the right third of the screen.
It's definitely an issue that is not acceptable. I even notice it when opening windows explorer. The top utility bar has a visible gradient.
I tried to photograph it, but it's hardly visible on photo.
Again, what causes this issue? It's definitely a PG279Q, so IPS.

Owners of the PG, do the following: Open paint and fill a large image with a grey color, I used the first one of the presets.
I noticed a color temperature gradient from left to right (2/3 warm, 1/3 cooler)

Its easy to distinguish the PG278Q (TN) against the PG279Q (IPS).

The Ips model have a ROG logo at the foot. the tn does not.

I can only say that mine was pretty uniform, at least as far as I could tell without testing equipment. I will say that the 'default' colour setting seemed a little cool to me and the 'user' setting a bit yellowish. Had to adjust the RGB values until I was happy.

Regarding the displayport issue, mine would not recognise any input until I had dusted the socket which seemed odd. I spent about 20 minutes jamming the cable in in every way I could think of... If it's consistent across HDMI too, then it's likely just a panel problem. Still, it might be worth unplugging the monitor and cleaning it out with an air duster or something, biosmanager. Probably won't have any effect but I guess it's worth a try before sending it back.
