On the one image I have what I thought was a dead pixel circled, but you can see all around it the slight white dots. This is what I am seeing, but they are incredibly hard to spot even in the dark. you really need to look for them.

ewwwww, thats what the bottom of my dell tn looked like. Dell s2716dg. I sold both of them now have 2 ips predators and they don't do that. Costco QC FTW!

Did you figure out what it was or what was causing it? Its really weird because its not the whole pixel lighting up and it only shows up on black. Pixels look fine on other colors. Ive had 2 of these panels in a row that have this.

Bro I have no clue. I thought that ulgy purple **** on the edges was just the latest TN panel flaw. The dell TN is amazing compared to every other **** TN panel tbh. But my acer do not have these issues. Btw the panel on the Acer is a newer version of same Asus panel. I have some dead subpixels but better color uniformity on one the other has less uniformity more glow but still a sexy ass monitor compared to everything else available.

The only baby I'll give em up for is an Asus pg279uq once that's $500. Don't see that happening in 2 years so idc. I'm happy with my setup for next 2 years.

Ran into one setting called "Unsupported Timing Retrain(reboot after change)" - can't find anything searching for that term on the webz.

Should i keep On or Off?

by the way guys, this may sound crazy but I think that I can remove most of my last piece's BLB by applying two clamps on the bottom bezel, lol. No monitor "modding" would be necessary. I can do it with fingers (not much pressure is necessary) and it works. the BLB gets to acceptable levels if there's pressure applied to the lower bezel. of course there's still the upper BLB which can't be fixed, but perhaps doing some "warmup" will make it go away, lol/

I would just return it but it's a piece with great white uniformity, fully acceptable, it's just that the BLB is a bit over the top. >__> And there's literally nothing, NOTHING on the market that's worth putting interest in atm if you want an 144hz IPS. Sadly.

Either way, here's my 5th again, mounted on the stand this time (Masochism I guess):

Can we see the clamps plz?
post #7158 of 7396
haha I'd have to buy them first biggrin.gif just an idea of mine.

For comparsion sake, here's the XB271HU right next to CFG70 (no signal on that one, though, so the brightness is probably MAX).



sorry for potato focus.

I noticed some minor clouding on the bottom right hand corner and want to run the built in burn in mode to see if I can minimize it further.

Any idea how long I am supposed to run it and if I should do so at 100% brightness?
post #7160 of 7396
how do you access the burn in mode?

More photos. What's interesting is that XB271HU is actually darker on reasonable night brightness than CFG70 on reasonable night brightness.

(10% on XB271HU, 20% on CFG70).



it also looks darker @ desktop, due to better coating. Blacks look blacker despite the BLB. Interesting.

Here's a quick photo of both of these showing a doom screenshot (sadly it's 1080p, so on XB271HU it's interpolated and blurred).



keep in mind that the image isn't calibrated on XB271HU on that photo (excessive green).
