Everything packaged well, until I removed the bubble wrap from the screen. Don't these people wear gloves when putting monitors together?! Fingers mark and smears all round the edge of the screen.. and yes it is brand new and not previously opened.
Anyway after firing her up was initially impressed. That soon changed though. 2 dead pixels on the right side and dirt bottom centre. TBH whilst gaming I'd probably not really notice these too much, but the bottom right glow and top left bleed gets annoying. No lottery win for me after paying for it a month ago!
Why does it always seem to be on the right? Being a noob on these things it almost makes you think its due to the monitor controls in the bottom right.

LOL its literally like you received my monitor that I did send back. Same fingerprints and smearing all over the screen itself (coating). Dirt in center, 1 stuck pixel on top right quarter of the screen seen on any background, 2 more stuck pixels visible on dark background. I had exactly the same experience as you almost. Its really unacceptable how they selll those 900 euro monitors. I mean the thing with finger prints and smearing on the coating alone are a no go.. How do ppl not wear gloves in a monitor factory or assembly factory in the year 2015?

It is so far PERFECT! And my god....the image quality is insane! Going from 21 TN and only week of using 24 IPS it is like my eyes gonna blow.

I can't check glow or bleed right now since it is middle of day here, but in terms of chasis, dead pixels and dust- it is perfect so far.

I am so happy! biggrin.gif
That's great! I will receive my monitor from komputronik tomorrow because they didn't notice my payment mad.gif I added EVGA 980TI SC+ ACX 2.0+ to my order and they acknowledged the first payment only (for monitor, and not for GPU) tongue.gif Hope my monitor will be perfect too.

Here are the pics to take a look at bleed.

Very important info for you all: There will be always a bleed in IPS monitor- ESPECIALLY with AUO panel. Sometimes less, sometimes more, but there will be.

Here is pic of my PG279Q bleed. Picture make it looks a lot worse, because I can't see top righ corner bleed at all, however I can see (although it covers MUCH LESS area in normal gaming) down right corner bleed.



Here is pic of my EIZO BK IPS panel, 1080p 24", which had very good reviews on TFT:



So as you can see (again- pictures make it a lot worse) you cannot avoid bleed in IPS at all, and AUO panel will have one always, somewhere, bigger, smaller- always.

So you can get perfect monitor- no dead pixels, no dust. But you will always have glow/bleed on your PG/XB/AUO panel.

Sad reality but if you want upgrade- you have to realize that.

It's kind of sad to think that your monitor quality is affected by if the guy who put it together just had lunch or not or doesn't use hair conditioner and has bad dandruff.

I hope they're wearing bunny suits and puttings the displays together in a controlled room, but doesn't sound like it.

There is little yellow bleed at down right corner of screen but good viewing angle and brightness set up make it almost gone. I can live with that.



Looks like you won the lottery. What's your brightness set to?

Let me know!

I don't have any strange effects on PG278Q...

So got my replacement and....No dirt, NO dead pixels. It looks stunning.

There is backlight bleed but not enough to worry about I don't think? Looks worse in the photo.

Happily running at 165hz smile.gif

Right now its 30-35 and that is very good for me. 50+ makes some things too bright, expecially in day in Witcher 3 for example and makes night too bright (same for dark games)

I can definetely see bleed on my PG in down right corner but I accepted reality that there is no AUO without bleed in corners. You can see it only in pure black scenario, even sligh light in-game and it is gone. I am lucky since it is only one corner, so yea.

Also angles are strange on thins monitor. I stronly suggest anyone to set your perfect viewing angle while playing some dark, pure night game. I was using Thief with low brightness.

My PG is on max high with little back setup so IPS glow from all corners and sides is minumim. You need to do it, becasue sometimes even few cm in view angle make one side/corner/up/down side glow stronger then others.
