Can you please explain this?

for the most part LCD doesn't really effect colors, LCD pertains mainly to viewing angles ( which if off axis can shift gamma which impacts your colors ) and contrast ratio.

There's a ton of other factors that impact colors ( color filters, LED pixels, back light led, bit depth, ect )

on a still image I doubt most people could easily see the differences between the PG278Q and PG279Q

Apparently there was a firmware update to this monitor? Did you guys have to send back your PG279Q for the update? Are the newer models still having the same problems?

I don't know about July, but mine I bought in August, and as I said few weeks ago it built also in August. I use it for about more than one month and I can say this one doesn't have any issues when from time to time a line down the middle, overlapping image. On my previous PG279Q I had, I saw this line within few days. So at least August monitors come with new firmware. Actually the my current monitor doesn't have any issues at all. Just works smile.gif

Good to know.
It seems the 32" 4k is having some problems with flickering lines, so I will keep an eye out on both threads.
The 34's do not have flickering but BLB is pretty bad.

Hey guys. At the moment I'm trying to get the newest PG279Q as possible and e-mailed some shops. One told me the serial number of the device is: FCLMQS09. I always thought they start with G[X]****** what kind of batch is this? Are these firmware fixed ones?

Is this panel IPS? or ahva?
I read it was AHVA

My monitor is August 2016 serial number starts with G8 8 means August and some other numbers after 8 of course... Monitor was imported from Netherlands to my country , if that can help with your question....

I know, and because of that I don't know where they got that serial from. Looks unusual smile.gif

Do you know if August manufatured screens already have that firmware bug fixed / newest firmware flashed?

I am not sure about that but if scanning lines was problem related to firmware then yes,i don't have that or any other problem ,just blb and ips glow in some degree ,but that is very "normal " for this monitor , i have seen just couple units without/or minimal blb ,and of course don't expect that your unit will not have that "problem at all" ,for me after some use it is clearly noticeable on black screen but i try not to focus just on that, and i don't have any other issue so i am trying to enjoy my new monitor...

I just wanted to add that I had a few issues of black screen problems with this monitor, not being detected etc and having to reboot the computer multiple times or even taking the power out and plugging it back in quickly trying all kinds of trickery to get the display to find signal again sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't, also I would have trouble when coming back from sleep etc

I replaced the DP cable with a high quality LINDY 1m CROMO DisplayPort Cable and all the problems have been fixed it no longer shows the black screen and always turns on without an issue

I think the combination of being 1m and a good quality cable is the reason for this

also I have the issue of every now and then ( I think its when you tab out of a game or something) that the very bottom of the screen ever so slightly will display at the very top

seeing as my unit was bought second hand I doubt I will be able to get the ''firmware updated'' but I found out turning the overclock off then back on again solves this issue & if you don't keep tabbing out of games it stays put

but even if it does come back and it annoys you just turn oc off then back on again

I think I won the lottery smile.gif

Got a G8 panel on Saturday. Had a G7 panel before. All fine now. The old one had an horrible yellow tint and backlight bleed on the left side at the bottom and on the top right corner. The new panel looks pretty good now. Now it's only IPS glow left, I can live with it, but I must say that it glows a lot more than my "old" Dell U2414H. I think it's because the AG coating is lighter.
