I'd advise taking a gander at my review of the ASUS PG278Q which uses a similar panel with the same screen surface, if you haven't already. It is certainly an issue with these models and probably the one thing I would change if I could pick something.

For future reference people should follow this and make their own decision whether a monitor is worth RMA'ing

Thanks for clarifying. Unfortunately I am going to have to go through replacing the monitor, It's pretty noticeable. But it seems to be getting worse, or maybe I'm just noticing it more. On grey images the curved damage/bleed effect greatly decreases the comfort using this monitor, if I have to edit a picture, I can't be sure if that is defect in picture unless I move the Image around.

AW OK I just looked at your review. Yeah I think I will stick with my U2715H. I really like the anti glare coating on it. It is the perfect amount IMO.

Just a reminder for those who are thinking about buying this monitor....i did a full unboxing and review on it on day of release.

Mine is still going strong, love it except from the pixel inversion and grainy coating. If it had glossy and less pixel inversion it would be PERFECT. Would love to see someone mod this monitor and turn it glossy!

how do you test pixel inversion again?
I haven't noticed anything wierd on mine since I bought it a month ago.

I wouldnt bother for testing. Its VERY obvious on mine when playing COD, Starwars Battlefront and other games that display fast moving images.

Its worst when the screen shakes, vertical lines everywhere! Also noticed minor flickering on loading screens which doesn't appear on other monitors i have used. Overall great though.

I'm glad to see you're still really happy with the screen overall. No monitor is perfect, so there are always going to be some compromises along the way. smile.gif

My Icc profiles keeps turning off after I Windows+L and come back after a while. Color management says the icc profile is still applied when its clearly not. I have to uncheck and check the apply icc profile checkbox to get it to work again. Anyone have this problem?

Newest DisplayCAL has a tray program called 'Calibration Loader' that will keep applying calibration after it gets changed for whatever reason. This is a common problem smile.gif
