We're a shipped a pile of **** with no QC whatsoever, and they charge premium for it. Backlight bleed coming and going when based on temperature is also a joke we shouldn't have to deal with. And Acer give 2 years warranty on this. For such an expensive monitor, I would expect 5 years warranty. But I guess they know they are shipping a monitor put together by the cheapest pieces and labour they can find.

The REAL problem here and worldwide is : TOLERANCE.

People have too much tolerance for this display QC nonsense!
People are ready to swallow everything nowadays and it's just sad really.
As long as all of that stays this way nothing's gonna change and we all will be getting mediocre to bad quality tech for extreme amounts of money.
Make a statement with your wallet!

How much are these going for where you guys are at and, assuming there is perfect QC (if that ever exist) and you'll get a perfect panel 95% of the time, how much more would you be willing to pay for it?

Going for $1000 where I am at (including tax, etc). For this price, you are already paying for perfect QC and 5 years warranty, in my opinion. So I wouldn't be willing to pay more. I think a more reasonable price for these monitors are in the $500-600 range, where I would expect good QC and 3 years warranty.

@theswagdaaddy The price of an EXCELLENT or NEAR EXCELLENT display is not an issue BUT price of a clearly DEFECTIVE panel IS AN ISSUE, that's it.
Tech is expensive, especially new tech but that's not the topic here, it is this horrendous Quality Control situation and in the future it will be even worse if users don't wake up!

This is a real problem, it's not just some Gaming monitor we're talking here, it does apply on house appliances too and it will be even worse,

I'm putting my hopes in DELL to make an IPS version of his S2716DG monitor and just wipe this low quality market of 2K IPS 100+Hz monitors once and for all. Acer and Asus had their chance and they blew it without any intention to tighten QC apparently !

agree with you there mate. i hate defective panels. but i think from ACER's perspective alot of these are probably not defective but cosmetic. ie 3-5 dead pixels is considered normal
