Strange how AUO are part of BenQ yet there's no Benq IPS GSync yet.

It's the same for every monitor using the panel.

so ive just picked up mine today (in switzerland) its a netherland batch it seems. its made in september 2015. there was no OC Passed sticker on it whatsoever. there are no scratches, no broken bezels like the 4(!) PG278Q i had before. theres not a single dead pixel/subpixel. the ips glow is not that bad either ive made a picture of it with my Dell U2515H IPS Screen on the left for comparison. (both at 80 brightness. again, not really noticable in person) if i watch from below the screen all glow is gone, kinda weird.

but overall im quite happy now, because getting the right PQ278Q was a PITA for me. ill let the screen run the next days straight and see how it goes.

BenQ have become, over the last few years, a very quality oriented brand. Even their budget monitors are nearly impeccable. I'm sure they're perfectly happy not making monitors that are prone to having QC issues, even though it's all the rage these days.

I mean, they have their BL3201PT monitor out, which DOES use an AHVA panel, and they were the first brand to implement it. It's reasonable to assume they have some sort of agreement in place that insures some form of priority. The difference is that specific monitor is nearly flawless and very well reviewed, with virtually no glow to speak of.

Maybe i'm being naive, but that's how i see it, anyway.

If I look straight on at each corner it doesn't glow. I hope you are aware of the difference between glow and bleed from pinching the edges.

The reason of the glow in the corners is that you are normally looking from center position which is at the most sharpest angles to the each corner.

As I understand it, bleed is white light creeping around the edge of the screen.
IPS glow is a silvery sheen that can be seen in the corners but should disappear when you change your viewing angle.
However, all of the Acer monitors I tried had this yellow 'radiation' creeping out of the corners.
This is a video I took...


...and before anyone says it was the angle I shot it at, then I can honestly say the same effect was always there, no matter what angle I viewed from. I'd never seen anything like in before... like a mixture of bleed and glow. Maybe it is radiation and we are all being microwaved (joking).

The PG279Q I own does have a slight silvery sheen when viewing from the side but all the vids I shot were head on as the player views and I can't see any silver, white or yellow.
If the effect you are seeing is similar to above then it must be an intermittent fault with the panel because both Acer and Asus are using the same panel.
Is anyone seeing the same effect?
There's got to be a reason.

Shame as they are both awesome gaming monitors without this effect (and the dead pixels... and the dirt... and the creepy crawlies that so many have experienced.

Guys, it is true that ALL IPS screens has a glow. But you can have a minimal glow or an extensive glow. If you can see silvery light in all four corners of the screen from your ideal sitting position (center) then this is an extensive glow and I would send this back immediately. Then you can have literally no glow from your sitting position and the glow is visible only from big angles or very small amount in one of the corner - usually bottom right. This is minimal glow and you can be happy. So yes, you can have also IPS "without" glow but all depends of build quality - QC. Majority of monitors will have some amount of glow even from ideal position but an extensive glow is not acceptable for such expensive piece of the hardware.

But I don't want to play wither on controller...

So you're not experiencing any issues then? The main reason I want G-Sync is because I experience microstutter I believe. I'm floating around 60 FPS, even when it's around 59.9 FPS, it seems to stutter a little in places like Novigrad, and my FPS counter says we're at 59.9 FPS.

Hey mate, pretty much the same with me, main reason I went for it was to stop the microstutter but witcher kind of has it anyway because of the masssive map.
I have a 980ti and 6700k and still experienced this even if I put it on all low settings, it all changed though when I changed 'visable foliage range' down from ultra to med/high, got rid of 99% of the stutter if not all, also using nvidia's optimal settings should work, but yeah try that.

I haven't followed the PG278Q for some time but wasn't that plagued by issues on launch - did they get ironed out over time?

Nope smile.gif Pixel inversion is still there in June 2015 models, as well as screen uniformity issues typical for TN panels (color/gama shift). I was lucky to get one without dead pixel and with very minimal bleed in bottom right part of the screen. Anyway, it's already in box and will go back to the store. TN can't compete with IPS in image quality...

Thanks. Oddly enough, I didn't have this issue on 1.08 I don't think. I was running perfectly fine till 1.10, but 1.10 was worth it to play hearts of stone.

Yeah i saw that to. But its only 1 shop that have that price. And they dont even have the screen in stock. i think you should ignore that one

I think you'd just a bad luck with PG278Q. My first was already perfect - besides those things I've mentioned above. Could you please take a photo from your ideal sitting position and camera paralel to the screen ? Best if you can take a short video and them make a screenshot from it? Can you see the glow if looking from default sitting position ?
