Anyway, grats on getting one you're happy with!
Yeah, they're all dust specs; they're not regular sized and if I zoom in on the photos I can see they're smaller than a pixel. I've tried exactly that, massaging them out of the display with a microfiber cloth, but no luck. In any case, the monitor I'm keeping also has dust, so I can always keep trying to get rid of the speck on this one (of all three it's the closest to the frame).
The one I'm keeping is really good:
- Virtually no BLB. I'd say it had two barely noticeable spots, I loosened the screw behind the predator logo a bit and one of them was gone (after seeing the Asus PG279Q's, what mattered most to me was the corners and they're all good)
- Uniformity is also really good, can't notice tint in any area of the screen (the Asus PG279Q's were GARBAGE)
- No dead/bright/stuck pixels (I didn't really see any DP's on any of the 3 Asus or 3 Acers)- I used my Spyder5 calibrator and got it to 65000K spot on with RGB 100/99/100 and 20 brightness on the OSD which is NUTS, I've never seen such good factory colors on a panel
. For comparison, on Acer #3 I had to use RGB 94/89/100 (factory settings looked like a dog pissed on the screen) and even then I couldn't get it to hit exactly 65000K.
Really happy with this one, it's probably the closest to perfection I could getEdited by EXPERIMENTONGOD - 6/21/16 at 2:20am
