Yup, that's certainly true for the fast 'premium' models.

Seriously, they need to be slapped with some sort of injunction or court order making it illegal to manufacture such crap! The LG panel in the X34 seems slightly better, certainly regards glow and this yellow nonsense, but it has other issues. I can't deal with TN personally, and anyone who's owned IPS will be in the same boat there. I reckon we might be waiting a while yet. I am still keeping an eye out for that 100Hz 21:9 1440p Samsung VA panel that was rumoured a while ago... that might have some potential. Failing that, it will be the next gen of DP 1.3 monitors before anything can really provide the quality we want.

What problems does X34 exhibit?

Regarding price: I still can't justify the same 1500€ for X34 vs 5K Dell, simply not applicable price for a "plain ol' 1440" just being a bit faster.

And AUO quality... well, BLB and glow are normal IPS problems; Is it visible on picture when using it or only on black screen?

Realistic test for backlight bleed:

Test monitor in 100% dark room to see what backlight bleed there is.

Test the monitor on a black screen at whatever Brightness you use with a 1w or 2w 6500k LED ambient light in the room.

See if the amount of bleed / glow is acceptable, with some light in the room.

Keep it for a few days (playing games not looking at a black screen) and see if it improves.

If it is still unacceptable return.

If you are going to be running at 100% brightness on a black screen in a 100% dark room, all I can say is good luck and have fun returning monitors, as someone else said a) don't use IPS in a 100% dark room b) try to avoid playing mostly dark games on IPS (like metro 2033, thief etc.).... the people who are buying an IPS and trying to play dark games in a dark room... The best solution to this is don't play in a 100% dark room OR don't buy an IPS and get a VA or OLED instead. Even if you get a 100% perfect monitor with no bleed, IPS is still not good in a dark room because of glow and low contrast!

Quick question, for those who have received a PG279Q, does it come with a Display Port cable in the box?

Yes indeed it did.

I honestly think this monitor along with others has been released too early. The technology is not good enough for mainstream production and i STILL have yet to see a single person keep theirs in this thread. It should have been delayed and perfected before launching.

This is £750 we are playing with guys...If it was anything else would you not have given up by now and thought 'wow what a crap product, that's not for me' The problem is we all WANT what it should have / could have been and its simply not. We keep purchasing in hope that it does exist when clearly, it does not.

I really wish i could go back to 60Hz sometimes, it would make life a lot easier!

The WEIRD thing is it has 5 star reviews on OCUK and SCAN suggestion some users are happy and have great monitors. I honestly thing those people have the problems but just ignore it because they have more money than sense or they are total noobs and don't know what to expect from a monitor. They are sucked into the whole LOOK AT ME IM THE BEST GAMING MONITOR IN THE WORLD...I HAVE FLASHY LIGHTS AND EVERYTHING!

The x34 has BLB and fairly bad IPS glow so the LG panel isnt much better plus its £250 more expensive than the PG279Q!

The technology is fine... the QUALITY CONTROL is not. Clearly this panel is capable of 144hz with low response times etc. Just the quality control is the problem.

So where is the new Dell TN gsync 1440p -144hz panels come from? if AOU, asus at fault too

Hmm I don't know, if AUO simply are not making enough good panels, then they don't have much choice, I imagine they are already buying A+ panels, but these are not selected individually, they are selected in batches based on a few samples from that batch. They will have a batch of panels, they will test some samples from that batch, then label panels A+ A etc. based on those samples, the whole batch will then be sold as that. So it is mostly AUO's fault, clearly it is easier to make TN without backlight bleed. If Asus simply throw all the panels in the bin that are not 100% perfect then they are going to lose money, but some of these on here are not acceptable at all eg. the yellow tint / bad white uniformity etc.

I think it is the combination of edge lit LED backlights and IPS / AHVA must be hard to make without backlight bleed, most of the LG edge lit panels have backlight bleed as well. I have a CCFL IPS here from NEC and it has zero backlight bleed. Hell at this money I don't see why they cannot include backlight uniformity correction or even local edge dimming.
