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.
My last two and I think four - five XB271's in total that I've tried had this issue ( 1 Oct and 3 Dec 2015 units off top of my head). Both sides of the screen were darker. But, the entire right side about 4 inches in from the edge was much darker than the rest of the screen. Very noticeable on the Lagom.nl site in the viewing angle test where "lagom" is displayed across the entire screen. Also noticeable in light backgrounds. You will see poor uniformity very quickly in that test. I use MS Office and other light backgrounds a lot and it really bothered me. It will not go away over time, that is a panel issue / defect.

You need to pick your poison with these monitors. My current Asus is the most overall uniform screen I've gotten so far (amazingly) with the top 4-5 inches of the screen being slightly darker than the rest when displaying white backgrounds and some BLB in corners. If the right side of yours is only slightly darker and it doesn't bother you, you should keep it. If you want to upload a photo I'm sure many people will give opinions that may / may not help you.

yours looks almost like mine did on a black screen during the day light. i ve had mine for 3 weekish now and BLB is about 90% gone. If u have no dead pixels or other issues you need to give that monitor a couple weeks and the bleed should greatly improve, you ll see. if not, which i think is unlikely, then go from there. Cheers and congrats on the screen.

Old tweet I know, but kinda makes me sad we may never get a proper review for this monitor. Seems like no one wants to review it for some reason(no one = everyone that reviewed the asus version of this). thinking.gif

Actually funny how many people I've come across that dont even know this monitor exists and thinks the Asus screen is the only 165hz ips screen.

Ok cool that's good news but i only have 12 days to decide if i want to keep it.

I love it except from this glow / bleed and some white uniformity issues on the desktop. The right hand corners look a little brighter white than the rest of the screen but i think its due to the bleed. It's not too distracting but its there.

The most important thing i have learnt having now owned the Dell S2716DG, ASUS PG279Q and Acer XB271HU is that there is no perfect 1440p, 144hz+ monitor out there. Every single one of them has defects so we have to 'settle' with something we are happy with.

Any recommendations on OSD / NVidia settings guys?

I'm at college right now so I don't have the monitor in front of me, but I definitely lowered Red gain the most as the monitor felt warm to me. Brightness goes between 20-40 depending on lighting.

I use G-Sync at 144/165 hz depending on games (still a bit concerned about the effects of overclocking on the longevity of the panel).

I was fortunate to not have really any BLB, as the glow in the bottom right pretty much entirely disappears if I change my seating position further back. I'm not really monitor saavy enough to pick out minor uniformity issues so I really don't know if mine actually has that. My PG279Q had terribly noticeable uniformity issues. Although I've never owned a TN, I have used many throughout my life, so I can certainly appreciate the colors of an IPS. I know everyone is hype for OLED, but I honestly don't think IPS is that bad, unless you're super perfectionist.

Can't wait to see your comparison and look forward to hearing your choice. I will concede that you can get one hell of a deal on the Dell, but I felt that 800 was worth it for the full experience that I wanted.

I just purchased this monitor last three days ago and I am happy with it. No light bleed the color accuracy is superb I have a dell 25' 1440p and I can tell the difference with my predator in color accuracy.

Awesome man. Congrats.

Can you take a picture of a fully white screen and black screen in a dark room?

When making comparative TN vs IPS, you can do one with Digital Vibrance in TN s2716dg?.

I just went out and picked one up.

Is there a way to tell if gsync is active? I have it set at 165Hz and in Bo3 the frame indicator on the monitor is pegged at 165hz but my FPS is lower than that.
