Once I did, I ran the same tests again that I that I just ran on the PG's and there is such a huge difference regarding BLB and uniformity between the two. It isn't even close.

So, no more PG attempts for me for quite a while, if ever. Pretty happy with the XB1 despite the less than pleasing stand.

Aw that sucks.

Awww... well you tried bud.. The XB1 is the better bet for your money for sure, even though a good portion have the same issues as the 279q, it's far less frequent with the Acers. Now i'm wondering if I should attempt to exchange that I might get one with worse BLB and pixel problems :/

yep. I really like the look of the PG more, but you just can't beat the quality of the acer I received. I know it is a lottery there too, but seems like quite a few more satisfied users in that thread compared to this one.

Where do you live? You could just buy a second instead of exchange and compare side by side. Send back the better of the two.

I live in Florida.. there are no stores locally or even in Florida as far as i'm aware that carries/stocks the PG279Q. I've been getting mine from Amazon and Newegg.. My two good ones are from Amazon.. My first bad one was from "Computer Brain" and that was one was terrible with the brown/orange bottom right corner.. This December one is from Newegg and it's no where near as bad as the first one I got but it's also not as good as my Septembers from Amazon.. both of those were actually QC stickers too.. surprisingly good units.

I may just keep this December build because in most uses I don't even notice or see the bottom right corner BLB.. Only in dark games can you see it's there, but it's not that bad overall. Mostly will be playing on my center monitor unit anyways.. It's sort of pointless for me to want/have 3 PG279Qs and when I do span across 3 for games, the BLB on the far right monitor is completely non-issue at that point since I have such a large spread of monitors.. It's just the part of me that is like "I paid this much, all 3 should be acceptable" .. I suppose I could keep this December unit knowing there's zero pixel problems and just go on being happy that "things could be worse."

The only way we'll ever guarantee perfect panels is probably when we see high refresh OLED.. And i'll be waiting at least 3+ years for those.. and just stick to these 3 until then.

what you guys think, is this amount of BLB acceptable?

(200 ISO)

however, comparing to my Qnix2710 "korea" monitor its just a joke...

I tired to find the answer in this thread. But is the FPS counter in the OSD the current refresh rate? It would be a good way to confirm that GSync is on and functioning in the game.

My two cents, that BLB is too bad for my liking... But to each his own.

That's a good PG279Q.. Wish my new December one looked like that.. :/ I'm going to RMA it and try for another.. sigh.

Playing around with my triple PG279Q.. December on far right (has terrible BLB compared to the left and center but you can't tell in most situations unless it's all black.. I'll add that picture shortly.
