It was brand new sealed but the moment I set it up I immediately noticed random pixels flashing all over the screen. They're red, green, blue, and white and just for a split second. And this was before I plugged anything to my pc. My heart sank but thought maybe it just needed to warm up a bit and maybe a reset. So I changed some settings in the menu hoping they'll help and tried resetting to factory defaults but no luck. It's less noticeable on white or some kind of picture but very noticeable on a dark background. After about an hour of it not going away I packed it back up and will be exchanging it today.
Besides that issue the BLB was almost nonexistent. Some minor IPS glow in the top right corner but nothing worth returning for. The stand, while stylish, sucks pretty bad in terms of stability. It feels like a knock in the top corners can cause it to tip and fall over. Since I have a glass top desk I think a little doublesided tape will keep it on its feet. Coming from a triple 24" setup it did feel a little underwhelming at first but the lack of bezels between monitors quickly won me over. Takes up less space and much less power usage equals less heat. I'm really hoping I'll have better luck with the next one.
Random pixels were flashing, standalone, not for example horizontal lines of pixels? If you have Nvidia GPU then this can be caused by 10 bpc color depth in control panel since Nvidia doesn't support 10 bpc on GeForce line properly, I had similar issue on 980 Ti with white horizontal lines flashing for a split second if 10 bpc was enabled. Changing it to 8 bpc helped and it didn't give any difference in quality since for now only specific professional applications are featuring 10 bpc.
Is it something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_GzlpuV04c
As for stand, you have to have very unstable or crooked desk. I really don't know what you are talking about with all of those stability complains, stand is very stable and on properly stable desk you need an earthquake to cause any instability.Edited by Krzych04650 - 8/26/16 at 12:15pm
