You might get that black bar issue I just linked it chat, found four owners with it now. The coil whine and overclocking issue is rare, the most common issue seems to be IPS glow

Thanks for the heads up, I did see your post, but right now I've only seen yours with that, but maybe looking at one in person, this issue is easier to spot. I'm definitely used to the glow, I've been on IPS for a couple years now, and the Acer is no different. I'm mainly concerned about horrible BLB that takes up 30% of the screen. White IPS glow is perfectly reasonable IMO

No, that is normally an issue with AU Optronic monitors (the 144hz IPS) however these are made by LG, so they have less issues

That's refreshing to hear. I'll keep an eye on this thread until I make my decision. Thanks for the information. Hopefully I'll get some more opinions as well.

i didnt see any pg348Q users with white glow,actually white glow is BLB and dont go if u move head around it should be still there.I have ips glow blb in all corners.Bottom right and upper right in ORANGE HUE glow and its perfectly fine in pitch black room / scenes.However i have YELLOW ips glow in bottom left (ALL PG348Q reported bottom left ips glow) which can be annoying if u sit close.Mine is like %8 of bottom left and reduced to minimum if i sit 90cm away and set to 50 brightness.
Most unlucky thing u experience is SCAN LINES at 100HZ redface.gif

Here is mine.Camera IS NOT OVEREXPOSE what u see here is what i see exactly

That's not terrible, not really any worse than my previous IPS panel before getting the Acer, and I never really noticed it until I actually looked for it. Like you said, scanlines are the worst thing, additionally something like Metros' black bar situation.

If it's like my Acer, you never notice the glow unless you look for it, or if you are always viewing pitch-black content. Thanks for sharing!

I would like more people to test this black bar, as so far everyone who has tested it, has the same problem, not sure if this is a problem affecting all panels at the moment

Tested...Not as pronounced as yours... Def Not a deal breaker for me
