post #5591 of 7847
About an inch of the screen on the right side of mine is a bit blue. Would that be ips glow or blb?

It seems like a keeper if the uniformity isn't terrible and you think you can live with it.

The included software will be easier to run but, Displaycal is more fully featured and doesn't impose any limitations beyond any in the device FW.

Ok, so why were you asking if it was good or if you should return it? Sarcasm? And yeah i watched it. The post seems pretty pointless then unless you were just gloating.

Well, yes most cameras over exaggerate IPS glow and you get a BLB look alike effect In the video. as you can see when i change camera angles you see IPS glow? correct? And when the camera goes directly in front of the monitor the glow fades away and you can see slight BLB? correct? I made this video to get some feedback as to if i am looking for the right effects when it comes to IPS glow and BLB.
I believe my monitor has very minimal BLB, But im not sure if im looking for the right thing.

It seems like you got a pretty good one from your exaggerated representation even. What do you think is what matters. Hows it look in practice?
Disregarding the glow the only two spots that really stand out are the two flashlighting on the top. Which i would imagine is almost invisible at 80% less brightness.
But if i did see it at all on dark content i would probably just fix it. Most backlight bleed is fairly fixable. Depends on how invasive you want to get. I can see some people not wanting to bother, but for me personally if everything else is good like uniformity and no dead pixels i'd be happy with only a little backlight bleed. I wouldn't accept it without trying to remedy it first though, as i think it's worth trying before packing it up and return it in hopes for a better one, which is seemingly unlikely.
If your uniformity is good and you have no dead pixels i'd say you won the lottery.

Zero dead pixels but theres a slight tint difference the left side of the screen only visible on whites and if you really look for it and i do mean really look hard. When playing games or just browing the interne ti do not notice it whatsoever.

As far as fixing black light bleed. Is there anything besides messing with the monitor settings one can do to further get rid of black light bleed?
post #5599 of 7847
One last question do you guys get ips glow when you change your viewing angle? I get kind of a lot unless I look directly at the monitor from the direct front
post #5600 of 7847
Yes. It should be hard to notice except on dark backgrounds.
