I bought this thing at Amazon.es on Friday and it arrived today.
- Brand new, box was sealed with ASUS tape
- Mfg. date: January 2016
- No dead pixels.
- Panel uniformity (white background) is mediocre, but I can live with that.
- Now the hot topic: as expected, it has some minor bleed areas around the frame (which I consider acceptable) but unfortunately there's MASSIVE bleeding on the two right corners (especially the bottom one).
I paid 809€ (~$918.35) for this display, so this is a bad joke alright. I can't believe the balls of these scumbags at ASUS... how can this garbage pass QC?
Here's a picture (very low quality but it shows the issue clearly, exactly as I can see it with my own eyes):
If all four corners were like the top left one, it would be pretty good, I'd say 99% perfect. But man that bottom right... I played a movie with black bars (2.35:1 AR) and it made me feel sick.
I have my first RMA coming tomorrow morning, it will be interesting to get the chance to A/B a couple of them.
EDIT: Here's the display uniformity, pretty bad alright:
