This was my initial concern as well, and I totally had the same feeling you do. I wasn't sure if this was going to get worse, or if it was going to jump out at me more on certain games, but after understanding this a little more I would say don't worry at all. This is just something that happens normally with this kind of panel. The fact is like I said above, I would never notice this "issue" on my own, enjoy your monitor, i'm keeping mine, the performance is still really "game changing" as I stated in an earlier post - it is a really nice piece of hardware

edit. I'd also like to add that i've done my fair share of snooping around forums, and been elbows deep in countless pc's, played with tons of hardware, been an early adopter/guinea pig of new tech, been putting these pcs together and tinkering since I was a wee one. . . I say all of this to qualify (albeit poorly) the following statement.

There is no such thing as a perfect product, ALL hardware has its drawbacks.

I might love a pair of headphones because when I pop on the Beatles and close my eyes I feel like I am standing on a rooftop on Sevile row in London, and the same pair might be eviscerated on some forum for having a sub-par "soundstage" when watching a bluray.

This is of course an extremely personal decision, wether or not the performance outweighs the drawbacks on a piece of hardware - in my opinion, which could change over the coming months this particular display is worth enjoying.

Good thing is, Dell is giving us three years to decide, which by then all bets are off in terms of what tech will be out there, but I think this is a solid purchase.

Thanks guys for confirming that this is normal behavior for this type of TN panel. I was pretty shocked to see the inversion issue in the test pattern, so my knee-jerk reaction was that something was broken.

As moot stated, everything else about the monitor is great, and I've been very happy with its performance in-game. Xeby, I wouldn't worry about it at all.

EDIT: I also updated the original post to reflect this.

That test is quite extreme, doubt you will encounter that in normal gaming, web browsing and watching movies, most of the swift owners don't, but there were some games that had slight pixel inversion but it was hard to notice, nowhere near the pics posted, so you should be good, I'll try to dig up the posts on the swift thread and tell you guys the games so maybe you can test em if you want.

EDIT: nevermind, it seems the pixel inversion thing varies from monitor to monitor, did a quick search on ocn and Trine looks like a good game to test, it has a demo on steam so no need to buy it in case you guys wanna try it but since some people have it some don't and some people can't even notice it, then I guess it's not a problem.

@ abcsoup can you take some pics of the problem in witcher 3/cs:go ? curious how it looks.

I currently have a swift and it does indeed have pixel inversion. I have also never noticed it outside of the pixel inversion test pages. I have never noticed it with regular use/gaming. Highly considering getting the S2716DG though considering I can't seem to get a Swift that doesn't have the dark smudged bottom right corner effect.

Thanks for confirming that it also appears in the ROG Swift. So far, moot and I are 2 for 2 in good panels. I'm curious to see if Xeby gets a good one, too.

I'll post my findings tomorrow.

The pixel inversion on my pg278q came out of nowhere one morning, i hope people who own this don't have the same issue where half the screen with text on it, half seems bold and the other seems thin

Is the AG coating really strong?? Is it like the PG278Q coating?

Thus far, no; the inversion only occurs with the test pattern posted earlier. I have not seen it anywhere else.

I don't have a PG278Q to compare against, but I'd say it's a medium-strength coating. It doesn't bother me, but AG coatings never have.
