With this monitor at least I confirm 100% that yellow/goldish glow is coused be either bleeding or damaged panel.

Normal should be blueish/whiteish silver glow. I have more blueish on left and more sliverish on right, but no yellow.

So I am well aware than this looks good but I always prefer to hold my final judgment to everything until I get proper data/experiance.

So yea, gimme time till night to tell you if I find it distracted or not smile.gif.

Sure, take your time smile.gif Now zoomed your photos and seems the worst is top right corner, bottom right and left are equal and top left is without glow. Can I see it right ? You have to say if it is distracting or not though so keeps us informed!

Hehe, this reminds my a story my friend told me once. He has a colleague who is a immersive player. Because he has a family he could play only at night. Once he woke up from bed at a midnight and because he was playing a horror game he wanted to have total darkness without ambient lights so he put blanket over his had and played. At 4 a.m. his wife woke up to get some drink and noticed he was not there. So she went to his room to tell him he could go sleep because is for 4 a.m. So she knocked him over the shoulder and as he was playing in a rush he got a shock and fired his hand straight into her mouth. She ended with two teeth less and sick leave four couple of days.... biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

So be careful when playing at night with blanket over your head.

I don't know if this has been posted already but here it is, another review:

post #3986 of 9392
Is the bezel around the monitor BLACK or is it dark grey? Also the inner bezel that is part of the panel... Is that 100% black or is it dark grey?

This makes a difference with the "perceived black depth"...

On the Mg279Q it was grey and definitely made the blacks look better than a 100% black bezel.

Interested to hear more opinions benny89, if it passes your tests then it will probably satisfy me as well!

Does contrast really make that much of a difference on bright content?
I'm really interested in VA, mostly because VA panels seem to suffer less from backlight bleed for whatever reason, and also the lack of IPS glow, but as I understand it our eyes don't see absolute brightness but brightness differences instead. I can see how VA is better overall on paper for picture quality, but right now they don't make them in 1440p with Gsync or even 30-60hz Freesync, and appear to have slow response times aswell (the Samsung S34E790C appears to be very good in that regard but it has other issues).

The monitor has a dark grey bezel but there's a gap between the bezel and the actual screen area that is black, about 2-3mm in size I'd say.

Yes it makes a big difference with any content - more contrast = richer colors, better blacks, more "3D" looking image, IPS panels will always be a bit flat and 2D looking, but they still look good with Bright games, just dark games where it becomes painfully obvious. To be honest for an "all round" gaming screen, if you can only have one screen and cannot use your TV for gaming, I would get a VA screen such as a Samsung or Sony TV. The only reason I will probably get one of these is for multiplayer games like FPS shooters etc. Any dark games or games that do not require super low input lag and 144hz Gsync, I will still use my VA TV, because contrast makes a big difference to any content, but its most noticeable on dark backgrounds. If there was a 144hz VA Gsync screen I would get that instead, but IPS is pretty good overall for general PC use and multiplayer shooters like CSGO BF4 etc, which is what I plan to use it for. If you want "immersive" for single player etc. a VA TV would be better overall because of the size and contrast.

Yes, it makes a difference on bright content although not as big of a difference compared to content that's both bright and dark. There are numerous VA screens with good response times, but still nowhere near as fast as the PG279Q/XB270HU or TN panels, but I'm not bothered by this as long as there's no significant overshoot. I care more about picture quality than motion blur.

- EDIT: Here is a picture CallsignVega took showing IPS vs OLED with bright content. Of course, OLED contrast is many leagues above VA, so even VA would look awful compared to it.

Wow, that's ridiculous, but could that not be caused by OLED having a wider gamut than LCD?

Thanks for your replies. I'm kinda torn between PG279Q for Gsync or something like the S34E790C for picture quality, although I don't really play/watch dark content much.
