That pattern was seen on some PG278Q Rog Swifts, and first appeared years ago on the VG278H or HE 27" Lightboost monitor. I remember those threads all too well. There's even pictures on Hardforum if you do a search.
Some people suggested it was from something being screwed in too tightly or something flexing. Either way, only Callsignvega would know how to fix stuff like that.
So you say this pattern is well known from other monitor types? Have you ever seen it on some XL2730Z? I couldn't find other owner with this problem.
I will definitely RMA this monitor again. Amazon would send me my last and third monitor. I hope the third one is good, because this defect is not acceptable.
I've had the plan to open the monitor and check if it's a mechanical problem. But the BenQ has no screws. Just a special lock where you need a specific key to open the monitor.
