Yeah thanks.

It would be nice though if people would share their settings to have something to try out smile.gif

I guess I lucked out and got a good one on my first try... mine had some backlight bleed but I never noticed it at 30 brightness. The strange part is the BLB is nearly gone now a month later. Anyway, I think 90% of returns have been for BLB issues, which if you set the brightness to a normal level, might not be an issue for you either. Some prefer really bright screens, though.

If you look through the pages (and pages) here, people have shared their settings. I'll save you a little hassle and just tell you what I remember seeing... if you want a "calibrated" 120 cd/m2 brightness, set it to about 25-30. Most people have set the color temp to User and adjusted the red and green channels down some. Depending on how bad of a yellow tint you have, you may need to reduce yours more or less. Mine started off pretty close to accurate whites... using my colorimeter I found RGB=97-93-100 to be optimal. Others have set theirs lower (probably more yellowish tint on theirs originally), something like 94-90-100. Strangely, my display has improved since I originally adjusted, and now I can set to 99-95-100 for a good 6500K temp.

Does anyone know what the best way is to clean the screens of these?

Microfiber cloth and distilled water.

I tried to push the struts away from the black plastic frame, but it's not pushing hard enough on the panel to make any difference. I also tried to loosen the screws, but nothing of note happened to the BLB. You can actually reduce BLB by pulling the panel in the corner towards yourself when viewing it. The problem is making it stay that way...

Excellent post, thank you. thumb.gif

Yes, the bleed/glow is very yellowish.

Just wanted to know how everyone else is feeling about the monitor. I don't have any yellow tint and compared to my ASUS PG279qs, all 6 that i tired... Back light bleed is almost non existent. The only catch is I do have stuck pixels. Quite a few, some have been massaged back. The thing is these seem to be sub pixel defects. As when gaming or looking for them I can't really see them, I have to go really close up and look at certain angles to notice them... Thinking of just keeping it. Can't really notice them during games at all. Can not say my screen looks yellow and backlight bleed is almost non existent, seems like a minor flaw worth living with rather than entering the lottery..

How many pixels are we talking about here? If it is a lot, I personally feel that is unacceptable and would go for another one. But if it isn't bothering you, and isn't impacting your experience, than I say keep it.

I absolutely love this monitor... but I also lucked out and didn't have any defects on my panel. I understand not wanting to enter the lottery again, especially with the number of comments here talking about 4, 5, 6+ returns before getting a panel they were happy with. Do you notice the sub pixel defects outside of games, like while web browsing? If I had issues like that, I would consider a return/swap. I don't think pixel defects are that common, though you do run the risk of worse BLB. Then again, BLB doesn't bother me as much.

Do you have a Micro Center near you, or another store that carries gaming monitors? If so, you could do a really brief panel lottery like some others here have... buy it and insist on testing it in the store to check for yellow tint, BLB, dead pixels, etc. I think most stores will let you go through several monitors until you get an acceptable one, especially if the flaws are glaring and obvious to the salesperson. Though in the case of Micro Center, you'd only have the XB270HU available.

Another option, if you don't mind having an extra monitor on your credit card briefly... you could keep the current one and try 1-2 tickets in the panel lottery, and keep whichever is the best.

Have you guys found a solution to the temperature shift of the panel? I've got a portion of the monitor where it goes from yellowish to white,and while browsing I can clearly notice it.
Does it need time to adjust or is it permanent? I've also got some noticeable backlight bleed. Should I bother the hassle of trying to return it,or shall I give it a couple more days?
