If it was a 100 dollar monitor, sure. But i'm not buying a 100 dollar monitor because I want to buy a premium monitor without issues.
Also you claim that yours is a lot better. Why should another customer pay the same for less (terrible) quality?
Don't get me wrong, i'm happy for you but there are lots of people that didn't win the lottery and to tell them that the technology is just not there yet while you have a good sample yourself is not ok.
Simple said. I'm not accepting this and neither should other customers.
You have to keep in mind, that you pay a lot for the features and the name.
144Hz, IPS, GSync, WQHD, 27".
Also, currently there's only one manufacturer who makes these panels, that increases the price too.
If you want good uniformity, you either have luck and you get a PG279Q with good one or you have to look for a monitor which is made for working with graphics, colors etc.
Either you wait until LG brings a panel with these specifications or you keep playing the lottery or you just deal with an issue like that and live with it.
I decided to live with the uniformity issue, because I had 13 monitors here and the majority of them had dead pixels and/or dust.
Now I have a PG279Q which has no dead pixels, no dust or **** like that - But a uniformity issue which is not as bad as a dead pixel imo.
And even in the tftcentral test, it says that the top edge of the monitor was 29% darker and dropped from 120cd/m² to 93cd/m²
So, if you set your monitor to a higher brightness, this problem is much more visible.
