PG278Q colors / color shift ain't that bad with your head positioned right. Strong AG coating hurts it more than anything. I'm not sure I could do 60hz ever again though, it seems like a slideshow after years of not using it.

Only thing you can do is return until 14 days all over again. But I'm sure your retailer will not like it sooner or later. Of course you can buy from someone else and play again.

3,5k PLN... it's same in Slovakia dude. We have very similar average salary. So it is harder for us to accept some flaws than other western EU countries or US.

Again- I prefer not to have PG at all than accpeting faulty one or faulty enough so it is not acceptable for me. I am not kind of guy who HAS TO HAVE biggest e-peen no matter what. I love those IPS screen designs and features but no enough to accept faulty ones just to own one. lol biggrin.gif I can live without one easly.

And so far my retailer accepted my second RMA and I don't care how much they will accept more. If they stop I will just shrug my arms and go buy from another retailer, go for Acer or just buy TN Dell.

It is not like I am starving and neeed food. This is expensive, luxury product that is not needed for me to live or even play games so I can be as picky as I want to till I am happy smile.gif.

Bah... I could even just give up on those IPS monitors and try lets say again in January if batches improves.

As I said, I am in no hurry with them so I prefer to be patient and get best possible. You are from Slovakia so you know how expensive it is for us- that is one of the reasons I am extreme picky and will be.

I've already mention that here, but it's about this. If you have this panel, please test it. I really hope this was one of faulty piece and not all are like this.

HEXUS mention this problem as well. It's luminance issue where top part of the screen is darker then the center point up to 28% which is unfortunately pretty visible on white solid backgrounds. Especially Windows 10 and during browsing. I found it quiet annoying here. Don't know if this is problem only in first batch (I have September 2015). Benny who has October 2015 did not notice it so far but he will do some tests. Edit: he confirmed that the top is a bit darker but without yellowish tint.


This is video I've captured, you can see the reply window at bottom is pure white, while if I scroll at the top it changes it's brightness and has yellowish/reddish tint. XB270HU does not have this issue.



This is the problem HEXUS described:

I also tested Nicholars solution with having a little light behind me.

Problem is light does not help on bleeding. It let you almost completly get rid of IPS glow in dark scenes but in every dark scene bleeding spot will still be visible on dark background. Even more since now that is the only place on screen that glows as corners IPS glow is completely reduced by light.

The only way you could stop noticing bleed at left edge is to put some source of bright light or glow next to left side of monitor. Like for example second monitor with some windows/browser on or some lamp etc. Then your eye has much brigther spot so you just do not notice bleeding.

However that also hits immersion hard having something so bright to shine, especially in dark games.

That is the problem with BLB- light does not make it dissapear from darkscenes as bleeding spot produces much brighter colors and glow anyway on dark background.

I was just playing for couple of hours Metro, Thief and Dark Souls, trying to maybe accept this bleeding spot but I just can't stop looking on it. Just can't.

It is like trying to look through your car front window and without noticing crack on far right side. If you force yourself all the time to NOT look there, you won't see it. But that kind of hit your field of view while driving.... And only makes you remember about the crack all the time.

Ow, well, I am going now to put PG back to box.

Well, you already know I had this with 2 panels (XB270HU and PG279Q).
I should get my next one this week, I'll check for that again (well I don't even need to check for it considering how obvious it is).

Really was it so bad ??? In that case this may vary piece from piece. So we have no encouragement we get one without this uniformity issue. So besides dead pixels, dust, blb, glow, this is another issue we may have. Really great :-/

Guys, found this video on YouTube and seems this guy has ABSOLUTELY no bleed or glow. Unbelievable. All should look like this! My XB270HU and PG279Q look like a crap in comparison with this.

Check yourself:

The entire left side of the screen had a yellow tint on both cases.

Me too frown.gif But look at the video I've posted. Seems we still have a chance...

Btw, how do you post it? In plain original box or you going to wrap it in some paper? It's a big box, I think I will send it as it came. Only original box with address stickers.
