So I've been evaluating this weird defect on the Acer #1 while I wait for Acer #3 (first and probably last RMA).
What I did is create a black 2560x1440 .png image and then "painted" two pixels, one white (to simulate "bright") and one blue (to simulate "stuck").
I made a photo of the image fullscreen, here's the result (defect is on the LEFT and the two SIMULATED bright/stuck pixels are on the right. Take into account that it looks like more than one pixel vertically because my hand was not perfectly steady when I shot the picture):
Conclusion: This monitor has some kind of "microparticle" which I can barely notice at my regular ~90cm viewing distance and it's most certainly NOT a dead pixel.
This Acer #1 has great uniformity, minimal BLB and NO dead pixels, just this one tiny defect (it's also not really the huge dust specks I saw on 2 of the Asus PG279Q''s).
In any case, tomorrow I will compare Acer #1 with Acer #3 and keep the best one. I don't think I'll be giving up on this whole thing after testing 6 monitors that's for sure!Edited by EXPERIMENTONGOD - 6/19/16 at 4:13am
