None of the 3 Asus had dead pixels, and Acer is now 2 for 2, which is curious to say the least.

Yeah I see what you mean, but I'm far more concerned about BLB and uniformity issues since these affect large areas of the screen. Mine has a small bright dot (about the size of 1/4 a pixel, it's some weird manufacturing defect and not a stuck pixel) on the lower center, and I almost never see it so it's not a dealbreaker. I have practically no BLB and uniformity while not perfect is so much better than the PG279Q and XB270HU units I returned, that's way more important than a single pixel defect IMO.

It's luck of the draw, keep trying. My display is almost perfect, very very very small amount of backlight bleed and that's mainly due to it being a ips display. No dead pixels, no dust. I struck gold on the first try (Amazon).

Sorry if it's been mentioned recently, I don't really want to trawl through 500 pages - I just saw this problem earlier for the first time after owning the monitor for about a week. Wondering whether it's an intermittent thing that effects all monitors under particular settings, or just some.

My settings at the time were running at 144hz in Nvidia control panel, although I checked and it was set to overclock to 165hz on the monitor itself (it read that it was running at 144hz though). Will wait and see whether I see it again, turning the monitor off and on again seems to fix it. Some users on that forum were reporting it happening when they have ULMB set.

Basically the Acer rep has said it is fixed with a firmware upgrade that you will actually need to send the monitor in for. He has also said it isn't at risk of damaging the monitor if you decide against the firmware route.

Currently running with overclock off at 144hz. Will continue to report back if this interests anyone...
yeah Im interested in whether you will have this bug without the 165Hz OC

Just remember you still need the actual display calibrating hardware for this software to work.

It's also important to realize that you can only hardware calibrate a monitor as far as it lets you and accuracy is highly dependent on the meter(s) used. Most consumer if not all consumer monitors only allow for basic hardware calibration and the rest has to be done with software profiling that only works where supported.

I get this once or twice a month. Turning the monitor on and off fixes it for me. Not a big deal. At least not a big enough deal that I would risk Acer messing up my my monitor for a firmware update. I run 144hz all the time.

Is it intermittent for no apparent reason? Or only when overclocking or waking from sleep or alt tabbing? From the stories i've seen i am unclear if it's certain things that actually cause it or if it is just random.

I've never overclocked the monitor. It seems like it's random. I've only noticed it when gaming, but then again that's what I'm doing on my PC 90% of the time. I do alt tab a lot so that's possible.
