Well, it is not like X34 is perfect either:
But still better than AUO. I'd take that over glow/BLB.
However, X34 is waaaaaaay to expensive for me and overpriced. For its price in Poland I could get new Dell and second 980 Ti for SLI, so not good bet for me

I would be willing to pay even more than 1K euro if they can guarantee me perfect panel with no dust, no dead pixels and no BLB/GLOW. I'm sure this is possible if they would want but obviously this is easier for them. Sell for ridiculous price and accept lot of returns. This way they can ignore QC pretty much and lot of customers will keep it anyway because they are frustrated to play more and more lottery.
But still the ratio of users complaining at forums is negligible to the amount of monitors they have sold... It's maybe 0.1% I have no idea so I believe there can be some good pieces. I will find soon...
Well, but whole industry is going like that slowly. GPUs that have coil whine, dead ports, plastic, no wroking fans, faulty fans. Intel giving us laughtable "next generation" CPU that has like 10-13% better performance than pervious flagship CPUs just to make us buy it, buy new expensive Motherboards and new expensive totaly not-worth DDR4.
And guess what? People are going for it and buy it, feeding companies with money.
Premium keyboards that have broken software at release (Corsair series...), headphones that easly break because of cheap materials (Razer), overpriced cases which can have scratches and damaged parts (Corsair), AIO coolers with buzzing, rattling.
Generally speaking- QC overall is really lacking is last years but the problem is people still go and spend money on it so....why would you need good QC
