Hey, I'm soon going to invest into a PG279Q or a XB271HU monitor, but it seems that the chance of a getting a monitor without defects is pretty low. Defects such as BLB, too much IPS glow (that is sometimes yellow), dead/hot/stuck pixels, luminance uniformity differences of +30% (sometimes with yellow tints), etc...
I'm reading that people are going through 3+ screens before you get one you like, how does this work in practice?

A common scenario is described below and I would like some more information on certain steps in the process.
You order 1 screen, after a couple of days (or weeks if they're out of stock..) it arrives at your home, and you test it. If it has too many defects (in your opinion) you'll request a RMA and send it back (your own costs) and wait for the store to return your money.

The requesting RMA part is somewhat unclear for me, for people in Europe do you use the Distance Selling consumer law protection? With this law you have 14 days to test/use the product with the option to send it back and always get your money back (assuming correct use of the product, duh).

Or do you actually declare the product as faulty to the retailer?
Depending on what you do, if declared as faulty do you then order it from the same retailer?

And if you return it via the Distance Selling law do you go to a different retailer so they don't 'suspect abuse'?

Do you wait until you get your money back from the same retailer before buying another one?
Do you buy a new one before the other has finished processing the RMA after sending it back?

Thanks for your help smile.gif

Well, the best is to return it until 14 days from date you received the item. You know, most of these issues are not considered a fault by manufacturer so RMA would be useless. Then you don't need even provide a reason and the seller have to refund. Then you can order another one from the same seller or from different one. It's up to you. I think smaller sellers will have limited patience until they refuse to send another one. I just wonder if it is possible to refuse a service to a customer. At the other hand people could abuse this protection system and make continuous buy & returns. So I don't know, I would like to know this as well.

As for me, I've ordered Acer from one shop and in the meantime another seller got Asus on stock. The Acer has been already on the way to me and I had to be fast to order Asus before they are out of stock. So I've ordered and got both in the same day. Unfortunately, I'm not satisfied with neither so I'm going send them back.

Asus has some yellow bleeding in corners, few stuck pixels and very bad uniformity (at top image is darker with ugly yellow tint). So no way to keep it. Acer is pretty acceptable, only a bit of bleed and glow but again it's yellow and distracting. Has lot of damaged pixels. I've counted around 15 stuck pixel all over the screen and this is just not acceptable. Good thins is that it is almost impossible to spot them with normal sitting distance. But hell, this cost 800 eur! Also good think it has no yellow tint. So I probably keep this but I don't like the design of this and especially that blue bright diode which burn my eyes from certain positions.

So after all, both go back and I'm waiting for PG279Q to go on stock and try another luck. Chance is there, Benny was real close. Hopefully until then XB271 will be out and we can hope for better. But 99% it will have same panel so it will be +/- the same as Asus. Hopefully they will resolve that yellow tint.

Well my third replacement monitor arrived today. Another dead/stuck pixel or dust. The 1st one I had a piece of dust, the second one had a piece of dust and a dead pixel, and now this one.
I haven't even got past the part where I decide If there is any backlight bleed or glow, it's been a case of turn it on, see dead pixel, back into the box.

I'm pretty sure It's dead anyway but it looks a bit smaller than the one on the last monitor I had, it might be stuck or dust.

Personally I would keep one with a dead pixel if it did not have backlight bleed or any uniformity problems etc. I mean seriously can you even see 1 dead pixel at 110PPI unless you are specifically looking for it? Unless it is black and bang in the middle of the screen.

Good luck on your quest for a 144hz AHVA screen with zero dead pixel, dust, backlight bleed and perfect uniformity, see you in about 3 years when you finally get one tongue.gif (if there is actually a single one in existance that is 100% perfect)

Hahah not this guy again, do you work for asus or something? Yes you can see one dead pixel and once you notice it the first time you won't stop.

Have you actually bought one of these monitors? I doubt it, if you did and it had something wrong, trust me you'd send it back at this price.

Also the website states this OcUK Exclusive Service: Warranty regarding dead pixels falls under ISO rules and as such dead pixels if very few are not an actual fault. But at OcUK we value our customers especially when spending such a large amount of money on what is a flagship gaming monitor. As such even if you only have 1 dead/stuck pixel and it has not gone after 3 days, we will class the monitor as faulty and exchange it for you at no cost to you. This service is exclusive at OcUK for Asus ROG Swift ONLY or other qualifying monitors! (Valid for 28 days from purchase)! so why wouldn't you do it until you got one without anything wrong?

Why are you even on this forum if you're just coming here to tell someone you would keep a faulty one?

Why don't you read my other posts?

Yes I have already had 4 and returned all of them (MG279Q and XB270HU), I am trying to be helpful actually.... from a realistic perspective after owning and returning 4 with various problems, 1 dead pixel is the least of your worries. The other problems with these panels are a lot worse than 1 dead pixel.

By all means keep returning panels with tiny problems, and getting another one with worse problems... do what you want...

Because they literally don't exist or are about 1 in 100

Loads of reports of people returning 5+ monitors and still not getting a good one.

Just saying if you get one with perfect uniformity and no orange bleed and one dead pixel, just keep it! The next one will more than likely have orange bleed or a half yellow screen, or a half green screen or etc etc etc etc.

I am bored of getting argued with for trying to be helpful, I will just stop doing it now. Have fun returning 10+ screens trying to get a 100% perfect panel and eventually giving up and buying a TN.
