I've seen multiple that claimed to be perfect but found issues with each.
Most likely these panels were rejected by a bigger company and rebranded for one reason or other.
Whether it is a few pixels, colors, or any of the reasons you listed.

I also have this monitor and fine with it.
Just saying everyone has their own standard of "perfect," most ppl just dont know what to look for.
I would say instead of "don't​ know what to look for" you could replace it with "doesn't affect the functioning and ability to fulfill it's purpose"... BTW it's condencending to state that just because you have seen defects that others are less adept than you because they don't. Not seeing what you see on a different sample doesn't make others less capable to see a flaw than you. I do know that I have spotted many defects and stuck or dead pixels in other monitors. So I don't feel like I'm ignorant to that effect.

Yes these weren't 100% "A grade panels", but they were shipped for some time before ASUS released their versions, so where did the A grade panels go for those 6-8 months? Do you believe they stockpiled those? Just waiting for ASUS? Probably not. They sold them to the lowest bidder and developed the quantom dot version. It wasn't until later that ASUS decided to make their version.

I think my dad has one of those tools. Is there a certain attachment you need? What's that tip called that you used? Thanks.

Maybe you know what to look for in a good panel, my opinion is that most do not.
As most probably don't even have the correct equipment to test for a "perfect" panel.
So when most are saying their panel is perfect, I would take it with a grain of salt as no one even posts their colorimeter data to even prove colors. Unless we are saying a perfect panel is just no dead pixels.
I'd take color calibration over a few dead pixels any day but that's my opinion.

Your entitled to your opinion but your taking it way too personal.

Does anyone know what exactly the Response Timing setting does?
Why would you want to increase the response time?

Also, when I change the color temperature to "Cool" - Why am not able to recreate that profile with the "USER" RGB settings?
Using "Cool" my whites are nice and white, but using "USER," its a washed out yellowish tint.

I also have a colorimeter which I've been messing around with for a few days. No idea why I can't recreate the whites from "Cool" though...

Not too personal, just get tired of people assuming their experiences determine others and if others don't see the flaws then they are less informed or ignorant. (Sorry if I directed it to your post, I've run into that a few times in the last 6 months or so) My colors weren't perfect, and even after calibration they weren't photo shop professional quality, but they sure do look pretty with a tad of oversaturation. If you want perfect colors you probably should be looking at an IPS panel, or something designed for color accuracy.


But... I don't think I have a perfect panel, just perfect for my use. And the only ultra-wide with freesync at this resolution at $650 and 100hz. I would challenge you to find another 1440p ultra-wide with similar specs for similar price. Or if you can't be happy with this level of defects, you probably are in the wrong price range and probably should buy any Korean off brand monitors.

Agreed. I had an LG 34uc88 that arrived with a broken controller board. The Samsung panel has far worse issues with it's ultimate mode and for a large number of people Freesync is only usable 80-100hz. The Asus version uses the same exact panel as the Microboard but it wasn't available months ago. Well known companies are no more immune to bad quality control than the off-brands. Saying we who bought this monitor can't tell the difference between good and bad panels is annoying and not welcome.

I can personally say the microboard monitor has been a great experience since it arrived to me in February granted not perfect as far as colors out of the box but getting displaycal settings from jearly410@jearly410 and doing a little of settings changes myself I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

What kind of mount is everyone buying?
Hard to find a mount that is responsibly priced to hold a 34" screen.

I got the basic amazon $25 mount. Only needed 4 more washers and long screws from Lowe's/ Home Depot. Only reason to spend more is for ease of moving it up, down, and all around.
