I have quite a large mouse pad and can't put it where I want because of the stand so that's something to keep in mind.

The stand is big vertically though, as kaelthai said. My mouse cord and keyboard cord have to go over it. For me it's not a problem though but worth to mention.

Thanks, good to know! I can probably get used to it for the sake of G-Sync goodness. I guess I should be a little more worried about size actually, cause I've got one of those big mousepads as well. I'd just get a mount but my desk is flush with the wall.

I heard that the IPS glow on this monitor tends to be more silvery/whitish vs yellowish as well - a little easier to stomach hopefully.

Yes, it extends to the sides that's the "problem". I'm using a Qck heavy mousepad 450x400x6mm and I want it somewhere where I can still rest my arm comfortably on my desk without having the raised surface of the mouse pad interfering. It's not a problem because you can reposition the display and turn the display to fix it but I'd rather not have to at all. It's not a problem with PG279Q and my older U2711.

Doesn't matter if you desk is 58cm or deeper (http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/contour-loop-leg-desk-white-and-chrome-owcontourd) put your mousepad in front of it. Is there a reason why your screen has to be within 35cm from the edge of your desk?



It's best to have your mousepad end in middle with keyboard when using 400dpi otherwise you wont have any room to move the mouse. This is coming from a ut/quake/dirty bomb snipe god that has trained for 17 years. you cant aim as accurate with higher dpi. check youtube video on stoogietheotaku

I always put my screen monitor on my right side, sightly in diagonal, mouse pad and mouse are just under the screen monitor
I dont' know why but i get used to use it like
Don't have any difficulty to play games in that manner

I'm using 400 DPI for things like counter strike that's the only reason for the large mouse pad. I just dont like putting my keyboard at the edge of my desk either. With this setup I just move my keyboard if I feel like it and the mouse pad occasionally moves.

I couldn't play like that, for example sit in the middle in front of your monitor, your arms shouldnt be straight for keyboard but diagonal out far right for mouse , both arms should be the same direction facing the monitor but mirrored, i would also say the mousepad area is more important than the keyboard, having the keyboard be the only thing in front of the monitor makes it look like you don't prioritize the mouse at all. Considering 6 inch per 180 degrees your 3 inch movement to the left before your mouse hits the keyboard isn't enough room. You also have 25cm or so of space below both the keyboard and mousepad, i cant play like that as it doesnt give you any arm leverage up and down for claw grip and increases drag since your arm will be touching the desk.

I do prioritize the keyboard as I am a programmer and don't need the mouse as often as the keyboard during work. This setup works for me but as I said I change it on occasion.
post #3928 of 7811
Well i type with keyboard on left half with no issues 100-110wpm with like 4-5 fingers.

No dead pixels or dust and minimal backlight bleed is making this a serious contender.

Glad to see that you've got a good one. Looking at your pictures, I would definitely call that a win. I know that you might feel different, but to be quite honest I think that my glow/bleed lowered after awhile, or I just stopped noticing it. If you don't want to keep it fine, but I strongly encourage you to give it a fair shot and I think it will suit your needs.

Cheers mate

hey guys, just picked up this monitor and i don't see any dead pixels or much BLB at all, but it does look like the right side, right along the border, looks slightly darker when on a white screen. Is this a known issue? Is this something that will go away over time, maybe after breaking in the monitor a bit? if i move my head over to the right it kind of goes away, but looks slightly visible... Everything seemed so good until i opened a browser... This is a Jan 2016 model.
