Thanks MentalBlack.

For testing purposes I've removed the highlights and black levels from your "white background photo" so that you can see the uniformity more clear.

In my opinion its better then the models I had from March. What you could do is put two browsers up on each other with the google homepage, in your case on the right side (because there seem to be the most diversity), and see the difference in white on both google homepage backgrounds. See also my post a couple of pages ago where I did the google webpage comparison (added below the original picture and link to post).


Note that this image of your screen is highly exaggerated and processed just to show the weaker spots which might not represent what the untrained eye is able to see.


Looking forward to your google webpage photo

First i would't trust my iphone 5 camera, it makes things worst. If there was a different as you said then i would say yes, 5% or less, trust my eye. Some pic i took with the same setting felt different because my camera focus is ****, it's hard to focus on the middle, some looked darker in the bot side and some didn't.

MentalBlank: at the distance you take the picture is unlikely you are going to capture any if not nothing at all of glow. An arm-lenght distance should be more suit. Also, room should be in total darkness. I know all of this seem exaggerated, but it's the only way we can stablish a standard to judge the *** glow.

It's the same distance that i took pictures with my previous monitors. It's unfair to compare them if i take the shot closer. Also for IPS, it's only noticeable when you look from the side compare to my previous PG monitors no matter where i look there was IPS glow. This is the closest i can get to show full screen of the monitor. As for the room, it's 100% dark the only thing light up is the ROG logo.

Thanks. That's really a keeper right there. Brightness setting?

Since i no longer have the one to the left i think it was 50% and the one to the left is 30%, changing it to 50% wouldn't make any different so i didn't bother changing it.

Another russian review site found their sample had a deviation of more than 1000K, and here's a google translate about what they said about it :

"But about the uniformity of the color temperature so you will not tell. The range of values ​​is very large - more than 1000 Kelvin. This is a very low result for the monitor at any level, not to mention very expensive PG279Q. The color temperature increases downwards, the average deviation from the center point is 3.7% maximum - 8.8%. I want to believe that we were just very unlucky with the instance. Otherwise - a guard ..."

Just because these IPS panels run at higher refresh rates does not in any way make them an "entirely new technology". They are still IPS panels. Furthermore, people who buy IPS gaming monitors are obviously after a better picture quality, which this monitor does not provide due to the low quality of the panel. Might as well buy a TN...

You are just reinforcing my original point. Read the reviews before buying the monitor, and set your expectations accordingly. There is so much unmerited whining in this thread about this display not being worth the price tag, and how you wish you never would have bought it.

....so read the reviews before you buy it and look elsewhere if you can't handle the negatives that they state. You aren't entitled to anything just because you paid X amount of money. If you need an example, look at Beats headphones.

I did. That's why I got the XB271HU, since the panel in that one is actually decent, unlike the Asus' (despite your claim that this "entirely new technology" can't be compared to other IPS panels in terms of uniformity/BLB)

We are however absolutely allowed to have an opinion about a product and whether it's a good value. I do agree that some people in here have unreasonable expectations, however this panel fares worse than bottom of the barrel panels found in $150 monitors in terms of quality, which is not acceptable.
