And you seem to have the mysterious oval as well in the middle of the screen, hopefully you don't see that in person. Not sure what that is...

A couple more pictures comparing the XB270 and PG279Q. I only have a GTX 970 (Asus Strix) so I only have 1 HDMI and 1 Display port. Whites look better on PG279Q but that could be based on settings (I'm using the suggested settings from TFT Central for both)

Left is PG279Q (HDMI) and right is XB270 (Display Port)

Yup.. have the oval.. but only in pictures.. definately do not see it in person.. tried hard to at all different brightness points and it's not there.. wonder if it's some kind of polarization that only the camera can pick up.

You have the dreaded cheeto glow on the PG279Q.. If you're not brand loyal, i'd stick to the Acer.. it's clearly a better panel, but needs calibration, the white looks off or is just set warmer than the Asus.

It's good to start seeing some more acceptable PG279Q's out there. There is some hope for future owners I guess.

It almost seems like they are cherry picking from the September builds and sending them out... Maybe I got one of those.. No evidence.. So it seems it's pure luck.. I still want to buy two more for a triple landscape build but i'm going to wait a month and see if reports came out that Asus addressed QC somehow first.

Hello new user first post but second PG279Q after replace cause of 1 dead pixel and bad BLB/GLOW.
so some picks of my second new one that i think im gonna keep cause im afraid that i wont get a better one plus that i have to pay 25euro for sending it back to the store.

only the bottom right glow is just a bit visible during use (can live with it)



i cant notice any yellow tint with my eye during use.


and the last pic that is the worst one cause i just found it(DEAD pixel), but during use its like immposible to see it cause its on the very top of the screen i just know its there tongue.gif

BLB is pretty good, that bottom right corner appears to be silver or orange? But that uniformity is bad, you will notice it during browsing session. Its october or september? Did you have any qc sticker ?

Its set warmer, no way to calibrate it. But BLB looks very good, mine is pure crap. Also uniformity is far better on Acer even yellowish. But if you don't place both displays next to each other then after a while you can't see a difference. I would definitelly buy same brand for dual setup.

Ah yes, I have the same but I can see it when draging something with solid background over that area. Its hardly visible by naked eye but its there. Acer does not have this issue. I would definitelly stick with acer this time.
