Seems they are completely sold out in EU at the moment :-/

Update on mine....i sent pictures to the supplier and they have confirmed it shouldn't have bleed and they are classing it as faulty.

They told me there is no ETA on the next batch so are issuing me with a refund!

Guess i'll be stuck with my old monitor until new batches arrive or a better replacement comes along.

Seems it has not been a good start for PG279Q. I thought Asus has learned a lesson from bad start of XB270HU.... Seems it's not the case. Well, hope they improve the quality control asap and next batch will be much better. They should really put some pressure together with Acer on AUO because this is not possible... In November it should be available in US so I'm very curious about the quality they will get.

This may be a dumb question, but what happens with all the defective monitors that are being returned? Will they truly be taken out of circulation or will ASUS package them back up and sell them as new to some other unsuspecting customer who may not be as discerning as the last?

They shouldn't even need to look at Acer's bad start. Asus themselves had a bad start with the original ROG Swift. Even over a year later that monitor is still plagued with QC to this day.

They will end at the retailer. Retailer needs to prove it is faulty and return to ASUS. Or he can resell them as second hand. However, for the retailer this is not very good situation. The only thing they can do is stop selling these models and maybe then ASUS/ACER will wake up and improve their QC.

That's right, however I did not have any issues with PG278Q I've bought 2 weeks ago. I returned just because TN is bad for me.

That highly depends from retailer and producer decision.

Because retailers agree on replacements very easy because of few reasons:
1. They do not pay for monitors. They are authorized seller for Asus so they get cut from each monitor sold. They are only way for Asus to sell their products in some countries. If they are short on supplies they simply ask Asus for more.
2. They agree on replacements becasue 99% of clients are requesting them in the window of 14 days where you can return monitor without reason. So replacement is only option for them as if they say no: they loose client and money becasue client can just ask for refund and you have nothing from it. As long as they deliver replacements:
a) They keep clients money for them and Asus. If client get refund- not money for Asus and store.
b) They don't loose anything as faulty units are Asus fault and are being send back to them (probably at their cost).
c) They keep client happy and urge them to spend money in future as they show that they want to deliver good product.

Now what happens with faulty units? If unit was returned becasue client simply changed his mind and he wants refund- monitor is being checked and it can be sell again in store at full price.

However if monitor was reported as faulty- and client asked for replacement- monitor is being send back to Asus where mostly the get some parts from it and scrap the rest. Or sold as used outside of store.

Remember that in manufacturing reality those monitors are cheap to produce so Asus can allow themself for such bald policy.

Monitor which was stated as faulty and confirmed as such- CAN NOT be resold in store again at price of new one.

At least that is my experience and knowledge from my country.

Of course they will just be sold to someone else if they are working as a "monitor" besides glow, bleed and dead pixels. Do you think they will just trash them? If they were to do that, they would ask like double the price for these monitors to be able to make any profits. Though some retailers will sell them as B grade at a reduced price if the defects were not enough to send it back to Asus.

Most manufactures follow standards which allow 2 completely dead pixels, 2 hot pixels and 5 dead subpixels per 1 million pixels. On a 1440P panel that would be more than 7 dead pixels, 7 hot pixels or 18 dead subpixels before it qualifies as a defective panel. Source

Damn, I was hoping to purchase this monitor next year, but I guess I might eventually just settle on a cheaper non-gsync monitor if these panels are just not good at all.

If you're cool with a TN panel then I'd recommend the BenQ XL2730Z. It has the least amount of complaints QC wise and a buddy of mine owns one despite being an NVidia user, it's a very well built monitor. Any monitor that uses the AUO AHVA panel (XB270HU,PG279Q,MG279Q) is going to be a lottery.
