I think I'll get used to the size, albeit I feel more comfortable on a 25incher. wink.gif Matter of habit, I guess - I used a dell u2412m for 5 years.

Colors really do pop nicely, albeit they are slightly oversaturated, but they look great. I'll calibrate mine soon.

If you return yours, make sure you get a fresh one - the ones produced in 1st half of 2016 and earlier were bugged ("line in the middle") and QC was worse.

Excellent smile.gif, well enjoy it dude, and I am in a new world now with 27 inches and 144 Hz, biggrin.gif time to enjoy as well thumb.gif

@Deathkill- I agree with Nefrusy, your BLB may improve over time. This monitor proved to me (seriously) that I have mild OCD. Your BLB doesn't look too bad, especially given your stated usage you should keep it. Poor color and white uniformity is *MUCH* worse than minor BLB. Keep yours and call it a day I say.

@Astreon- glad you got a good one as well. My current monitor is a September 2016 build from Costco and is perfect.

I really notice a difference now playing F1 2016 on my desktop w/ this monitor vs. my 60Hz laptop. I crash far more often and misjudge corners on the laptop. I plan on keeping this monitor for several years until the prices fall on soon to be released high refresh 4K monitors and GPUs can push 100+ fps on ultra at 4K. My 4K 60Hz monitor that I bought to tide me over between defective Acers has been collecting dust.

Compared to stuff like this:



Which is iiyama's semi professional monitor...

or this (dell U2515H) which is the almost-professional UltraSharp display:



our BLB looks nonexistent.

I'd say that most new monitors have this problem, lol. The AUO M270 panels are notorious for BLB but looking at the pics I just posted, would you call these monitors any better? I wouldn't. Actually, they have worse BLB than all my XB271HU combined! (the three pieces I bought, that is).

I'll receive my 2nd one tomorrow.
Really hope it gonna be better than my 1st one, chich had terrible color uniformity:




I was a bit hesitant to send back this one as the panel was perfect beside that color temp shift that drive me nuts when browsing.

Yep, the white uniformity on this one is garbage. Not as bad as my 1st, but definitively not acceptable.

I had an Asus like this. I called it The Patriot because it was tinted red, white, and blue at different parts of the screen. Return that POS.

I don't want to go through BLB lottery nonsense ever again. I sincerely hope this is my last LCD. Maybe in 5 years we'll have reasonably priced 120-144hz OLEDs.

Also, for comparison, my white uniformity at normal brightness & initial calibration (as the screen is no longer yellow-tinted, but it's kinda yellowish by default anyway I literally lowered R and G by 8-10 points compared to B, lol).



There is SOME darkening at the right edge, but it's so slight I don't see a point in complaining.

Also, the M270 is glorious if you get an acceptable one. As glorious as an LCD can be at least.

Got my 2nd one! Seems very good so far, no blb, a bit of glow i'm completely fine with, and uniformity is good!
I will post some pics today

no dead pixels or dust?

If so, congrats on the lottery. Please post your manufacturing date, too. It's on the box.

Dec 2016, no dead pixel or dust.
