They are not all crap..

I agree... it's certainly not a case of all the panels being junk, there are certainly some good ones. But the rate of 'failure' is far higher than I've ever seen on any panel before, and the state some are leaving the factory in is quite shocking. LG and Samsung are definitely behind the curve here though, but they can't be oblivious to the demand and opportunity. We'll just have to wait and see what they come up with, but I suspect it won't be until DP 1.3 is officially released before any really exciting monitors next appear.

That bottom right bleed is awful.

I have it too and top right so mine is going back on Tuesday.

I'm gutted as i'm really loving this monitor except for this fault. Really not looking forward to going back to 1080p 120hz without GSync

What i don't understand is why retailers don't open them up, test, and if they are perfect stick an extra price tag on it for being cherry picked. I'd happily pay a small fee to save all this hassle and lottery winning.

Some retailers do offer that service I think, although the screen is only just starting to show up in my country and not in the ones where I'd like to order yet... But one drawback of cherrypicking is that people can be hesitant to order a non-cherrypicked screen from a retailer that offers this service. I mean, it seems obvious that if a retailer picks out the best ones, then not paying for that service will leave you with only the rejects right? It may not actually work out like that (maybe they send the rejected screens back), but a lot of potential customers may think like this.

That is absolutely awful. Even if you are taking the picture with a cell phone camera on bad settings to make the problem look worst than it actually is, it is still extremely bad. Here is a shot of my Acer XB270HU taken with a cell phone camera in a completely dark room to exaggerate any bleeding/glow and look at the difference. In person it looks nowhere near this bad.

It is same as mine was, awful bottom right corner bleeding. I was trying to make it work for few days but belive me- you will get mad and irritated EVERY time you have any dark scene, dark background, dark movie on this panel. This awful yellow glowing bottom corner will just always be there, catching your eyes.

You can see in your other corners that you have there normal IPS glow- blueish/silverish, depending on angle but also when sitting straight. However this bottom right corner has this dam yellow glow, the only corner in this screen. This is annoying as hell.

Mine was same and went back to store, I am expecting replacement next week. Yellow colour is not acceptable.

I am playing righ now on my 1080p IPS screen and I have just normal blueish/silverish glow in dark scenes, which can really nice blend in the scene as those are quite neutral colours and don't obscure black/dark background that much. However yellow??? NO!

But this is still same bottom right yellow glow. All other 3 corners seem to be fine- normal IPS glow. However this stupid yellow glow is just bad! Your unit is also faulty and should be returned. IPS screen should NOT HAVE yellow glow! Only blueish/silverish. If there is YELLOWISH tint/glow at some corner- that mean panel was bend there, is being pressed to hard there by something or was damaged there during manufacturing process.


I think this bottom right might be because of control panel being there. For example my EIZO IPS has control at bottom line, half of its lenght where bezel is thicker. All other bezeles around screen are very thin. And I have no even slight yellow tint anywhere.

Since most problems come from AUO panels and not actually Asus themselves, Im not sure Asus itself can do much about it. Other than maybe sort out bad panels by their QC personnel, which is rather expensive to be honest. But lets hope they pass all the criticism to AUO and they finally improve their freaking manufacturing process.

Yes but the camera and completely dark room exaggerates it making it look far worst than it actually is. In person using the monitor in a well lit room the glow is not even noticeable, you can notice just a tiny bit in that area if the screen is completely black there. But other than that I really won the lottery on this monitor and have been enjoying it for 6 months now. biggrin.gif

Wow, I still don't get how can they charge 1 grand for a monitor with awwfull black light bleeding. My 300$ korean monitor i got 3 years ago made from rejected apple screens have it way better. ***

In well lit room every IPS will look awesome. However point is when you play at evening or night (which many of us with family and job do) and then this yellow glow is just awful.

This is how good IPS panel should look. This is my 1080p EIZO IPS panel in total dark room, at night with pure black background:



Brightness 55, gamma 50.


Compare it to his PG.

I would understand if it had more glow on one corner but be that blueish/silverish like IPS should have. However yellow means that panel is being (or was) pressed there hard that that made it look like it.

Little analysis of possible control placement as the reason of it:


My EIZO has control at bottom line, where bezel is thicker so it does not press panel. However PG controls are being place exactly in this yellow glowing bottom right corner and probably this can couse it.

New Acer XB271HU has same control placement and design (thin bezels around but thicker one at bttom) and my EIZO and that can make it not having same problem as PG.

Pictures to show you what I mean:

PG:



My EIZO IPS:



New Acer XB271HU:



That is my assuption but I CAN'T find any other exlanation why all other 3 corners of PG are always fine and bottom right always has this yellow glow.

I've been following this thread for a few months now. I'm currently building a new PC and I'm just waiting for this monitor and the Acer XB271HU to come out in the US.

Benny89, that's a nice attempt to explain the cause of the Backlight Bleed on the PG279Q. But you're forgetting that the XB270 HU also had the controls below the panel and that hasn't stopped it from having any bleed.

Btw, does anybody else feel like Europe is getting completely ripped off with this monitor? The PG279Q has confirmed to have a $800 price tag in the US. Although it's going to release in the first week of November, i think I'm going to wait for the Acer to release as well.

Btw, the Acer XB271HU is also confirmed to have the same 165 Hz overclock with G-Sync.
