I still think it comes down to the casing and design of the monitor itself. There is a huge difference between the XB1 and the PG in that regard, so assuming they are using the same panel, I would have to assume that something in Asus' design of the PG is contributing to the consistent BLB and uniformity.

I have mentioned this before on this thread, and was told the uniformity is a panel defect, but why is the Acer not nearly as plagued with it as the Asus? You would think you would see the same amount of complaints about it on the Acer thread and the online reviews.

Because the XB1 is using a different AUO panel model than the PG279Q.. For some reason you'd think Asus would have switched to it and stop using the model that comes in the PG279Q.. probably bought so much stock of it, they won't be switching to the XB1 panel for a long time. I read multiple Asus e-mails on other forums where people were being told the "issues were resolved" in December forward.

I know Vega figured out there was a difference in model number, but that is just crazy to me that the model used in the XB1 is that much better quality than the model in the PG.

Something werid happened with my PG279Q... I have the FPS counter turned on all the time (really like the feature). But the recent Fallout 4 update changed something... now it always reports 165 on this specific game. Seems normal with the rest.

Oh and in general after months of owning the monitor, I don't regret buying it. Glow/bleed issue is exaggerated. thumb.gif

Have you seen all of the pictures people show of really bad ones? The issue isn't exaggerated, you just won the lottery and don't care at all about black performance so aren't bothered by the glow.

Some are pretty bad, in those cases I understand. But some people keep swapping them expecting a miracle. Almost none (if any) are totally free of light bleed and the usual IPS glow. It's still one of the best 1440p gaming monitors out there (if not *the* best). Mine has no bad pixels or hue shifts, but it does have the four corners glowing.

For my use (mostly gaming and some web browsing) the issue is barely noticeable. The smoothness of the 165 Hz and G-Sync are eye candy enough. I agree however that if I did a lot of work with a black background all the time (or gaming in something like EVE) I would probably have looked at alternatives, especially after having waited for these Asus a long time, since the Acer Predators had lots of glow issues. That would probably mean older monitors without G-Sync. Seems the cutting edge is definitely the bleeding edge.

Glad you like it and I did laugh at your last sentence. Although I have to say, based on what I see on this forum the PG279Q in general has the most severe glowing issues, mostly because it's more orange compared to the more white Acer glow.

I can confirm this after going through several of both. The bigger difference though imo is the uniformity. No contest there from my experience.

I have two on the way to me.. One arrives on Friday.. 3rd exchange.. and then I have coming in two weeks.. Will return the worse of the two.. Or both if they are terrible.

I have had all kinds of trouble keeping Gsync working in fallout 4. Seems like every update or if change settings it loses Gsync and just displays 165. As far as I know, if its displaying a static 165/144 Gsync is not active.

Curious, I never has this issue until the lastest Fallout update (I've also used multiple nvidia drivers).
Do you get the LED on the monitor to go white? Mine stays red, which should mean that G-Sync is on. I did have a few cases where it would stay white after the desktop was booted from Hibernate. No issues on Sleep or normal boot.

I do not think that the fact of the counter being stuck at 165 means that G-Sync is off. When I got the monitor one of the first things I tried was an On/Off test in games, checking if G-Sync was noticeable. When it was set off (Via nvidia control panel) the only visual change was the LED going white. The FPS counter still operated normally.
