Maybe you just used to the 165hz. Could also be that all the monitors and the PG279q running at same time not letting your gpu clocks to go up and down the whole time

I have tested 5 of them in the past 3 days.

I have now asked them to ship 2 Acers to the store, so that I can test those instead...

Well after going through 5 of these that all had back light bleed which is unacceptable at 800$, i decided to try the Acer Xb271hu and it is flawless, a perfect panel who would have thought 800$ monitors could have zero defects.

Just got my PG279Q today. March 2016 manufacture date. Small stuck dust particle on the left side, can't see if I'm not proactively looking for it. Can't test backlight bleed yet, but how does the uniformity look to you guys? It's at 100 brightness btw

Hey if you guys want to but this monitor I would suggest getting it from B&H. I just received mine yesterday and it has no issues (January Build) except one spot on the bottom right with back light bleed. I'll upload some pictures later.
post #8486 of 9398
Are you guys running your monitor at 100% brightness when testing for backlight bleed? I immediately lowered mine to about 26-30 as per TFTCentral's recommendations when I bought it today.

TBH, I don't really understand the point of posting backlight bleed photos when they completely misconstrue the actual image perceived by your eyes.

If I look straight at my monitor, I see no uneven backlighting. But If I take out my camera and look through the viewfinder it looks like a mess.

Good idea I'm gonna try that later also.

Does that yellow tinting/hue on the upper left quadrant go away for some? I cant seem to get rid of it with calibration, the lower half of the screen is quite brighter and whiter.

Nope, its the biggest weakness of this monitor, _Alot_ of them suffer from 1/3 of the top being urine colered or alot darker.

The XB271hu uses another panel that has better uniformity.

I just got this screen, no dead pixels and no blb as far as I can tell, still daylight here.

what annoys me is the yellow tint over the screen, the white is not white frown.gif looks like everyone has this issues?

does anyone have a good color profile? I'm currently using a qnix profile for the asus and its definitely better.
