Not only that but September 2015 unit so I am not supprised that I have yellow glow biggrin.gif

I was thinking- I will wait till night to show you guys, but guess what? No need- you can see it right here: Top right corner. Do you see how silverish are other corners and how yellow is top right. Yeah..... Glow is of course exagerated by sun light from behind me but you can see glow color just well.

Brigthness: 26, TFT calibration.








Well, thats it. I think I will quit from ASUS lottery. They get my middle finger. I will keep this for a week and then get refund and wait for Acer. I don't know if I want to get another replacement. ASUS so far is one big pile of you know what in terms of Quality of they product. I don't care if AUO make panels like that, it is ASUS who put it on market.


I don't understand if it so "BAD" why are you keeping it for a week, send it back right away... This was clearly not the worst so I don't know what you hoped for, sound like a returns abuse to me.

Yellow glow is not correct glow. It means panel is faulty. There should be only silver glow.

I keep it for week because I want.

I just hoped for panel without orange/yellow glow. Thats all.

Satisfied?

Why would you want to swap a 27" 1440p Gsync IPS for a 24" 1080p TN non Gsync?!

Because 900€ is not the price you pay for all the problems with that monitor. 900€ monitor should be perfect monitor.

4) PEREFCT overdrive (though this requires exploiting undocumented bugs to activate it).
And when I say perfect...I'm using one RIGHT NOW and I have two VG248QE's to compare it to. (you can make it act like Asus Tracefree between 40-60)
5) Blur reduction= EYE CANDY $$$

Yes it's 1080p but would you rather have something that works well and can give you at least a solid image, or keep playing lottery tickets and getting frustrated?

Believe me..I wanted to upgrade too. But Benq dropped the ball on the XL2730Z (no proper strobing lower than 120hz), Asus dropped the ball on the ROG Swift (inversion, gsync bugs, lottery tickets, etc), and Acer dropped the ball also.

So if you win a lottery ticket (which I did) then you found bugs which made your monitor look MUCH better than what TFTcentral reviewed on their overdrive tests.....well..you know.

The only hope now is for the
1) XB271HU
2) Eizo Foris FS2735.
(and there is some 'rumor' going around that it might be able to strobe with freesync active, but neither the TFTcentral owner, or PCM2 believes that's actually possible.
Maybe Eizo simply forgot to mention in the manual about "Blur reduction is not available in freesync mode", but no one knows yet.

Guess we'll find out huh?

BTW here's what I'm talking about regarding the XL2720Z.

Here was TFTcentral's review of the overdrive with blur reduction off.


What the pictures from tftcentral do not show, however, is the black to white "glowing ghosting trails" you also get (but the RTA Artifacts chart should show you).


Now, TFTcentral has hardware that can capture perfect frames. I don't.
But here is what the AMA looks like after exploiting a blur reduction "AMA low" undocumented setting, then a profile switch bug to get the AMA to apply to blur reduction off (which usually should not be possible).



Again sorry for the blurriness but I think you get the point.
NO coronas.
NO RTA artifacts.
Just sample and hold motion blur.
Yet requires a few bug exploits to activate.


Here's what it looks like at "default AMA high"--this is what TFTcentral measured (as no one even knew about how to exploit bugs back then).

TN, 1080p, 24", No gsync, A decent competitor to this monitor would be the new Eizo freesync monitor or the MG279Q freesync which is again pretty good if you have AMD, when DX12 is mainstream AMD should be more competitive.

As much as i'd love to have the PG279Q in top condition, i just don't believe it actually exists.

That yellow glow in top right was same as mine and very annoying in all scenarios.

Actually very few of the koreans can hit 120hz, most can only do 96hz, to 110hz, mine does 110hz but flickers sometimes still, it is annoying, also the gamma gets destroyed when you OC the korean monitors, I have a hell of time, even using color profile keeper, some games just won't allow it and even newer games like black ops 3 dont have a gamma slider ingame, so your just screwed, its a real shame.

If the only problem with the 1440p benq is bad strobing lower than 120hz, thats not a dealbreaker imo, strobing is only perfect at 120hz anyway imo.

Ok, I RMAed my monitor. Gonna send it back tomorrow or day after. This time for refund.

I will try Asus and Dell TN. I am just tired of bleeding/glowing problems of IPS. I jumped into IPS hype train and now I am getting out. Maybe in future....

I just wanna play comfortable in dark games in dark room. To the hell with IPS.

I will let you know how it went for me. Till then- best of luck for you!

So you going to try the new Dell first or the PG278Q? Also I would keep the monitor for a couple days so you can play battlefront lol.
