Whether it's acceptable is your decision. Good BLB and no panel defects already puts it well above most imo. I'd try using it for a few weeks and play some games on it to see if uniformity bothers you enough that you aren't happy with it. As to being worth the gamble for return, I'd say probably not. Perfect panels of these seem to be unicorns at this point. There's a high chance there will be something just as bad wrong with the next one.

I was planning on switching from my BenQ XL2411Z to this but all these issues are making me a bit nervous :S

See post #3615 from me a page or two back. The photo I took of the YouTube page is an example of horrible uniformity in every day usage. If yours looks good while viewing normal content then your uniformity is fine.

Hmmm... kind of hard to tell from that pic. It looks like the outside edges, especially the left side, are a bit yellowish compared to the middle. Try moving an all white window around the desktop and see if you notice the color change from a white to off white.

Looks awful to me. No way could I accept that.

@DukeLukewarm
If it looks like that with naked eye, return it.
Well only if it bothers you, but I wouldn't accept that. It looks like the whole screen is yellow, except the middle...

So after more time with my monitor I agree with Yellows' findings about 10 pages back. There's definitely something that happens to the frame after use for a few hours that increases BLB. I have almost no BLB right when I power on the monitor, it is nearly perfect and the best I've seen so far out of my monitor. Then you see my photos that were taken after a few hours of use, a lot more BLB. The photos were taken with my iPhone 6S camera and even with the over-exposure the BLB is pretty minimal before the monitor heats up from use. I've had the monitor for 2.5 weeks. Don't know what to make of this, haha, maybe this means BLB will be gone after months of use due to frame changes?

Its probably something about the heat while this thing is turned on.
Maybe you should try out to cool the monitor down with something like fans. A lot of them so it keeps the monitor @ room temperature or cooler
If theres no issue with it, then you know its the heat of the monitor. Because if the plastic gets warm, its stretching and if its cold its tighting.

Thats just what I think, maybe theres another reason but this is pretty logic imo tongue.gif

Just in case anyone else was wondering: I got my new 970 now and I can overclock the panel to 165Hz just fine. It also helps a lot with running games at 1440p of course =) I'm really loving this monitor!
So it looks like:
>= 650Ti Boost -> 120Hz max or 144Hz for 780Ti?
>= 960 Boost -> 165Hz max

FFS, this now really adds an extra layer of complexity to the lottery that you enter in to buying this monitor in the first place! Now you can't even trust what you see when you first turn it on!! When will this torture end, I just want to buy a monitor that works properly [sob] ARRGGGHHHHH!!! mad.gif
