I have done that and its black as black can be, but bottom right hand corner is a faint bit of white glow doesnt bother me monitor is frigging great

I just tried two different monitors and two different sets of dp and power cables. Both the same thing with Deep sleep off. Ill have to try to an acell cable. I should note i am using my gigabytes gaming 7's DP port, not an actual video card.

In that case, make sure you do not have any extra sleep function from your motherboard DP. I myself, run windows 10 powersaver for my monitor where display turns off after 15 minutes of no use and I dont get that issue.

It might be related but I know for a fact that non VESA certified cables, that uses a extra 20th pin in their cable can cause issue when waking monitor off. I had the issue where my monitor wouldn't boot (DP no signal) on cold boot using the stock/oem cable. Give any Accell or other vesa certified cable a shot and report back. Good luck mate.

Everyone with the monitor by default has this issue it seems, even Asus-279 ppl who share the same panel.

The main question is whether they are triggering it or not by virtue of how they use the monitor, which varies between ppl and thus whether they'll see it frequently or not at all (seems to be triggered by ppl playing games full screen + alt tabbing to desktop frequently).

Yep, it's a well known firmware issue, it's in ALL PANELS, people claiming they don't have it probably have been lucky or maybe have certain magic hardware combination.

I had 6 monitors (3 Asus PG279Q and 3 Acer HB271HU) and all had the issue. Heck I even had it today while rebooting my system. From POST all the way to the Windows welcome screen.

I play Overwatch and alt-tab A LOT between games so I see this line 2-3 times a day easily. I alt-tab so much that the number of times I see the issue in 3 hours of gameplay it may take other people 3 weeks maybe months to see. But as I said, it's not just spamming alt-tab in a game, you can get it even booting up the system so it's not that rare really. Also out of the 6 monitors, one of them even showed the issue the very first time I turned it on. If I had to guess I'd say the chance to see the issue is around 1% (of the times you change refresh rate/fullscreen/etc.).

The good thing is that you can alt-tab/change refresh/fullscreen and it's gone.

For me this issue is kind of an "insurance policy" to RMA the monitor down the line if I need to.

are you playing Overwatch in regular (proper) fullscreen ?

if you alt-tab so much - have you considered using borderless window for Overwatch ? does the line issue still appear if you alt-tab while game is in borderless window mode ?



also I assume the fuzzy image issue from 970/980 cards is gone now that you changed to a 1070 ?

Yep I always play in exclusive fullscreen. There's no point in trying borderless because the issue happens quite rarely, so it just takes another alt-tab and it's fixed. I can guarantee 100% it wouldn't happen that way because you need to change refresh rate/resolution/fullscreen.

ALL the issues seem fixed since I changed the DP cable from el cheapo to stock "Hotron" cable included with the XB271HU:

- Always get signal on boot
- No flickering at all, not even once. I only EVER see the blue LED blink when Windows starts and the display initializes and switches to 144Hz and that's it.
- No more fuzzy image (I think it was related to flickering, because the last time I had fuzzy it had the image had just flickered).

So again guys, save yourself a headache and don't use garbage DP cables with a "high performance" display.

Cheers,

EOG

The AOC Agon is coming out in a few weeks - and it has the same specs on paper as these Acer/Asus panels. So it'll be interesting to see whether it shares their 'features' with regards to the vertical line issue and QA problems etc.

Official Product Page : http://aoc-europe.com/en/products/ag271qg
Overclock thread about it: http://www.overclock.net/t/1602323/aoc-ag271qg-thread-1440p-144hz-gsync-ips

People are saying the vertical line issue is a problem with the Gsync module, and if a fix doesnt yet exist publically - its hard to imagine these AGON panels will be shipped without the very same issue? (unless they have early access to the fix or something from nvidia). This is also, of course, assuming the monitor is using the exact same AUO panel.

Honestly, its just a crappy time all round to be a consumer wanting this feature set in monitors. Making things most frustrating is the fact that the monitors look incredibe ***if*** you get a good one.
