It's a little noticeable on dark games. Not noticeable during general use.

Thanks for letting me know.

The top right glow reduces a little if you put the monitor as low as it will go and raise your chair up a little but its still there.

I can see it on the 'x' icon on windows, its lighter than the rest of the window

It honestly sounds like you guys are being way to picky. I understand that $800 is a lot of money for a monitor, however this is still new technology (high refresh rate IPS panels). I'm going to be purchasing one of these monitors when they're released in the US, minor IPS glow/BLB doesn't bother me. However, if the monitor has any dead pixels or has dust, I will be getting a new monitor/refund since these problems are completely unacceptable for a $800 monitor.

I'm gonna go with either this one or XB271HU for overall usage monitor and XL2420G or XL2430T for more serious competitive gaming monitor. That way i'm going to cover both fronts, casual and competitive, because searching for one perfect monitor is just waste of time and effort, since it doesn't exist.

Testing GPU Power Draw at Increased Refresh Rates using the ASUS PG279Q
Quote:
In the comments to our recent review of the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q G-Sync monitor, a commenter by the name of Cyclops pointed me in the direction of an interesting quirk that I hadn’t considered before. According to reports, the higher refresh rates of some panels, including the 165Hz option available on this new monitor, can cause power draw to increase by as much as 100 watts on the system itself. While I did say in the review that the larger power brick ASUS provided with it (compared to last year’s PG278Q model) pointed toward higher power requirements for the display itself, I never thought to measure the system.

To setup a quick test I brought the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q back to its rightful home in front of our graphics test bed, connected an EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti (with GPU driver 358.50) and chained both the PC and the monitor up to separate power monitoring devices. While sitting at a Windows 8.1 desktop I cycled the monitor through different refresh rate options and then recorded the power draw from both meters after 60-90 seconds of time to idle out.


Quote:
The results are much more interesting than I expected! At 60Hz refresh rate, the monitor was drawing just 22.1 watts while the entire testing system was idling at 73.7 watts. (Note: the display was set to its post-calibration brightness of just 31.) Moving up to 100Hz and 120Hz saw very minor increases in power consumption from both the system and monitor.

But the jump to 144Hz is much more dramatic – idle system power jumps from 76 watts to almost 134 watts – an increase of 57 watts! Monitor power only increased by 1 watt at that transition though. At 165Hz we see another small increase, bringing the system power up to 137.8 watts.

Interestingly we did find that the system would repeatedly jump to as much as 200+ watts of idle power draw for 30 seconds at time and then drop back down to the 135-140 watt area for a few minutes. It was repeatable and very measurable.

So, what the hell is going on? A look at GPU-Z clock speeds reveals the source of the power consumption increase.


Quote:
When running the monitor at 60Hz, 100Hz and even 120Hz, the GPU clock speed sits comfortably at 135MHz. When we increase from 120Hz to 144Hz though, the GPU clock spikes to 885MHz and stays there, even at the Windows desktop. According to GPU-Z the GPU is running at approximately 30% of the maximum TDP.

Though details are sparse, it seems pretty obvious what is going on here. The pixel clock and the GPU clock are connected through the same domain and are not asynchronous. The GPU needs to maintain a certain pixel clock in order to support the required bandwidth of a particular refresh rate, and based on our testing, the idle clock speed of 135MHz doesn’t give the pixel clock enough throughput to power anything more than a 120Hz refresh rate.

Still what amazes me is that left side of my PG is totally dark, there is alsmost no glow there. You have to look for it really , really close to be able to spot it.

Yet right side has much bigger glow. How is this possible? Did anyone read about something like that in IPS screens? What can be cause of that.

Here is my Righ side glow, top and down corner in total dark. Taken from camera video.



Here are pictiures (camera shots) showing right corners glow and biggest down right corner glow:











You can see quite a big glow on right side. While as you can see my left side is almost totally black without any glow at all. ***? Why there is such a differance between left and right side?

@xg4m3- Same here, 2430t or 2420g for fps games and one high refresh ips, probably acer 271 for campaign games like fallout, witcher etc.

Yep yours is EXACTLY the same as mine. Its only the top right i notice under normal use. Everything else only shows on a totally black screen.

The top right casts light over everything, even under normal use. If you move a window across the screen from left to right, it gets brighter the closer it goes to the right hand side.

You still returning yours Benny89?

My problem is theres nothing else on the market that fits my needs and id have to go back to my BenQ 2420T 1080p @ 120hz which i dont want to do but equally i dont want to be stuck with a £750 monitor i'm not 100% happy with.

Except from the top right glow, i find it to be great. Games are so immersive with this monitor

But as you can see in my pictures, DOWN right corner is most noticable for me in dark games, not top right. Top right is there but not as big as down right.

Under normal use- bright content, not total dark scenes, I pretty much only sometimes see down right glow a little. But not too much. Pictures show as I see it on total dark screen. Down right being biggest and top right being slight, definitely smaller than down right.

But that depends on angle- If I try to keep top right minimum- down right is going too big and too bright. If I try to keep down right to minimum- top right is becoming to big.

Hard to find good angle for both.

I want to return it, but I want to know- can I get better than this one? Becasue if not- whats the point?

Do you have auto night detection on when taking these photos? If so then turn it off.
