Newegg has this monitor available for sale as an open box.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236717R&ignorebbr=1

Anyone think its worth buying like this or are you better of buying ait as brand new?

Just tested the game on another monitor, the flickering seems to be drivers or the game

Interesting. Not the issue I was having though. Wish it was, I wouldn't have sent back that monitor if not. Happened in all games, swapped monitors and it went away. :\

New PG348Q owner ... read this thread (actually studied it) before making the decision to buy this monitor. With the QC issues it was a touch and go decision ... but said "stuff it, im buying it" ... if i have issues ill just return it!

May 2016 build date and said im sure since March all issues would have been dealt ... well ...

one dead sub pixel (not the entire pixel ... just the green subpixel) ... so anything on a red or blue background its fine ... anything with some green in it ... it shows itself. Super tiny ... normal use wont notice it unless i go looking for it






black light bleed or IPS glow ... pretty much non existent ... it really is a stunning monitor

9f437de1f0abe6dba1e1587575c0ceda.jpg

Retailer has a back order replacement unit for me come September, and ive been told "use your current one until your replacement comes in ... only thing make sure you don't throw your box or any retail packaging away"

My dilemma, the replacement could be worse. Mate also bought one at the same time as me and also a May 2016 build and he has a dead pixel and coil whine. So what are the chances of me getting another "defective" monitor??????

... Hear some people saying just return it and get your money back. After having experienced this monitor i cannot go back to anything else. This is the only monitor i want. It is utterly and disgustingly so .... just f-en amazing! (if only that silly green sub pixel can just awaken)

Keep it. I haven't seen that kind of non existent BLB/Glow on any PG348Q screen. Especially on black background.

Looks great, especially that next to no BLB in normal usage! If you go with the lottery you might get a better one but it could also be worse. I think I'd keep that if the dead subpixel can't be seen in normal usage and your usual sitting distance.

Here are a few more thoughts..

I felt the same after going through 4 PG279Q's. Every single one of them had varying and similar issues, and after 354 days of waiting and swapping I was done and didn't dare go through the lottery with this PG348Q.. What if I would've gotten worse and worse monitors?

Mine has scanlines and worse colors at any overclock, a bit of BLB on top left I sometimes notice in very dark scenes and some faint on top right. The BLB seems to be getting better over time. I've rubbed it carefully with a microfiber cloth, helped a little. It seems to come from the way the panel was put in place in the chassis.

February 2016 manufacturing date, got it in March.

So all in all, the dead subpixel must be annoying, but it's up to you if you wanna go with the lottery because lottery it is as we can see from this thread. Could the retailer agree to cross shipping so that you can test this and the possible new one side by side? It would be awesome if they'd agree to that! Then you could just choose biggrin.gif good luck whatever you'll do, please keep us posted smile.gif

...and I can't go back either...the colors and everything are just so good at 60hz, and I sometimes OC just for fun and try not to see the scanlines.

I've checked PG348Q and X34 in stores and both models had scanlines so I guess it's something to do with the monitor design (g-sync, overclock, panel changes) and/or bandwidth. The panel was designed as a 60hz panel originally after all, the overclock is just an extra at least partially enabled by G-Sync.

I love this. I sometimes stop working or gaming and just marvel at the great colors and details. Recommended for blu ray movies too.

Thanks peeps... The intention is when the new one comes to test it at the retailer. They into selling overclocked machines to clients and generally have a test bed of machines which I can test...

Is it possible to set the monitor so it turns off Light-In-Motion when the computer is shut down and automatically re-enable it when the PC is powered on?

I have it connected to GTX 780 over DP and tried many OSD settings but found only 2 feasible workarounds:
- set LIM to preferred level and turn the display on and off manually upon PC shutdown/power on
- disable LIM completely and let the display sleep when the PC is shut down.

The issue is that I like LIM glow yet when I turn off the PC in my room I want to sleep in complete darkness and turning on/off the display is a hassle.

Best regards,
Ank

So many owners and no one has any idea for this issue?

No, it is not possible as the ASUS PG348Q gets power from the power adapter, it only needs the computer to display an image

You will have to turn the monitor off, if you do not want LIM

I am in the same situation as you, I can sometimes get flickering at the top 1-2cm of the monitor, normally happens in loading screens. My monitor gets to 100hz, no coil whine, almost no back light bleed, almost no IP, no dead pixels and no stuck pixels
