I've posted in the XB1 thread, don't want to go off topic here. But yes- 4 from Amazon, 2 from Newegg. All had combo of dead or stuck pixels, bad BLB, and a hair under the screen. I've fared no better with the PG279 (tried 2, no desire to try more). And I got an email from Amazon support about the returns, asking what they can do to improve, etc. Number 7 is from Frys, figured to try them because if I get a good one I can at least get a warranty through them here in IL and not rely solely on manufacturer. If #7 isn't good that'll be it for me. I think someone over in the XB1 thread went through at least 8 monitors.

Thanks for the advice! Yeah im going to ask for a return tomorrow. I saw the xb271hu coming in to stock to some dutch retailers so I will probably just refund this one .

I was wondering whether the lower right corner is just ips glow, but then it's strange that the left corner doesn't bother me so much. So I took some images from about 2.7 m away which should eliminate the glow that appears when viewing from an angle. The brightness is at 100 and with the camera viewing the monitor roughly from straight on (ignore the hot pixels from the camera):



Perhaps the glow kind of amplifies or makes much more conspicuous the light from the backlight bleed when sitting at a normal distance from the screen. Anyway, even this level of bleed without the glow effect can be distracting enough.

This image is from about 2.1m distance, same monitor settings. It might give some more detail.

Those photos look better to me. Still BLB on left side and top left. Bottom corners look like typical silver glow in 2 of your photos and more orange in the 3rd? If you can't see it in regular usage and games it could be a keeper. If that's the case, congrats.

I finally got my December model (last one I was able to get was manufactured in September), and it's mostly the same. Bad white uniformity along the vertical axis, although it's bothering me less now; might be reduced. Same pattern of backlight bleed, although it may be less orange and more blue this time. Hard to tell.

However, with this model I am having problems overclocking past 144Hz. When I try I just get a black screen telling me that there's no displayport signal. Also, even at 144Hz, if I press the turbo button sometimes it'll cause the screen to go black and say "out of range." Only by attempting and failing to overclock and then turning the overclock off again so it reboots can I get the monitor to show the desktop again.

I'm having trouble finding pretty much any reports of either of these problems. It seems like everybody is able to overclock to 165Hz without a problem. (It was certainly easy for me to do with my last model!)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Bottom right definitely is blb, I doesn't disappear if you look at it from a perpendicular angle. These images were taken from such a distance and angle that no ips glow should be seen at all. Unfortunately it ruins the image for me (maybe a combination of the glow reinforcing the bleed?) so I'm going to return it.

Do you have a capable geforce 700 series or above?

Third PG279Q came in this weekend.

November build

As the previous 2, this one also has terrible yellow hue, this time in the entire top and left half of the screen - only the right bottom "goes free" and it looks to be due to severe BLB in that corner - since 3 corners has BLB, specially lower right - and also some light blb in the sides and top.

Sounds bad? Well it is - but weirdly enough the eyes get used to it.... But ok, I will RMA it and hopefully soon get a panel that has the functionality and quality this price range should deliver.

cya in 3 weeks for next review.

Why not try the Acer XB1? I really don't see these issues going away for this monitor, especially the uniformity. Much higher chances of scoring a good XB1 than the PG imo.
