Someone prove me wrong--you CAN'T.

THIS IS MY BENQ XL2720Z.
standarad mode. brightness=30. Blur reduction off, vertical total tweaks off (120.5 hz), contrast 43, RGB 100,98,96.




Ok people. Do me a favor.
Go to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php
Use your PG279Q's.

Set the gamma 2.2 line to be exactly in the center of the monitor, then look at it head-on. Note the gamma value.
Move your head UP and down relative to the panel (look above and below the center line).

Does the gamma shift? or does it remain 2.2?

Waiting for your answers.

I can confirm that TN looks exactly the same plus TN has brighter image on sides. This IPS does not. So why we getting IPS ?? The only difference is that on TN if you look from height of a border this tint is reduced and almost invisible so at the end if you willing to accept this viewing position it look better than this IPS panel! Of courses angles are much, much better with IPS but that yellow tint.... come on. The tint is not changing with angles at all. It's some flaw, really hope we got faulty pieces and majority will be fine.

@Benny, I'm asking once more, did you notice something we mentioned in last posts? I know you said it was slightly darker at the top, but was there that crazy yellow tint ?

Tried your test, gama remains! This is IPS panel for sure man.... Hardly believable, isn't it. Who make reviews of these products ? Are reviewers completely blind? Someone said, yes, the top is darker but no one mentioned this terrible yellow tint which ruins everything.

And btw, your Benq looks better than my Asus.

I'm now somewhat glad Acer's XB is coming a little late so i didn't order PG and had complications with returning it.

I really, really hope they will fix that soon, with next batch.

That was probably me, I did not notice anyone else complained about it before. Then Pareb also posted pictures of yellow tint. But seems not so bad than mine... Benny told that on October model the top is slightly darker but without extensive yellow tint.

I can't test now because I'm waiting for my next monitor (which may or may not have the same issue), but what I was seeing is definitely not TN gradient. It did not shift when I moved my head at all. Also on my screens it wasn't at the top but on the left side of the monitor. I also posted on TFTCentral forum about it and was told it's a backlight uniformity issue.

Misiak, I edited my post.
I took new pictures. The 0.0 EV exposure was making the screen look as if blur reduction was on (it looked MUCH brighter in person). The new pictures I took are much more like what it looks in real life.

Did you check lagom.nl for gamma shifts ? With 2.2 in middle of screen, my Benq shifts to 1.8 if I move my head above the monitor and to 2.6+ if I move my head down below the monitor.

*edit* Just saw Pereb's reply.

My current screen is old and far too small but its NEC and has literally zero problems at all.

Heh, I will tell ya tomorrow. And then I'm definitely done with this new 165Hz crap. XB270HU is far better. So either I really got the worse sample or this really sucks.

I can't see any changes if I move my head up and down. Angles are really good. But maybe I don't know how to use that test correctly. But I had TN panel, it was terrible. It was completely wash out if I looked from angles. With IPS it's perfect...

You always notice on white background, when browsing pages, etc. I bought another one from different reseller so I'm very curios. I will have 3 of them and pay 2500 eur for them! Ridiculous...

2500€, daaaamn. I truly hope next one is going to be perfect.
Everyone who is not happy should return it and after some time Asus will have to do something to fix them. The more returns, the higher the chance of fix sooner. Some people were bashing benny here for being picky, but he is right; if you're not fully satisfied, return it and after some time Asus will notice it (ok, that thing with gpu's was too much biggrin.gif, but that's off topic).

What you are seeing I think, is nothing to do with viewing angles etc. it is dirt or discoloration on the screen or something like that, the XB270HU I had was the same except it was green and bottom left. My TV has a slightly green blob on it as well on white backgrounds, but on these £700+ monitors it really should not be happening.

Shocking how bad some of these AUO panels are. I've said it before but this is NOT what IPS should be like, not at all. It's like someone selling you a Ferrari that has a smoking engine, exhaust pipe dragging on the ground and rust... and being told this is what Ferrari's are like, get used to it. It's a joke. I have a Samsung PLS (IPS) 60hz 1440p monitor which is virtually flawless... tiny bit of glow bottom left which I hardly ever notice, and perfect colours throughout. I've got friends with Dell and Eizo IPS monitors also, better than mine. The only thing they lack is the faster speed and variable sync, but in every other aspect they put these AUO panels to utter shame.

Yes, it's crazy but I have to try. If it sucks again I'm out of money and have to wait for refund. Then I can make another try. But I'm torn apart. At one side I'm pretty satisfied with this XB270HU but it has pretty much stuck pixels (not visible though) and some minor blb and glow. I think I could live with that but I desperately like PG2789Qs design and overal build quality. The stand is fantastic. But for me image quality is more important and I know for sure that I couldn't live with that yellowish tint. But I hope this may vary from piece to piece and I can get better one and be completely satisfied. So I have to give it a try. But what if I return XB270HU and next one will be even worse ? smile.gif I had never in my life a harder time to buying a piece of electronics as I have now....
