SOLD - Gloss modified PG278QR 165 Hz G-Sync 27" TN

Extra one for sale. Pixel perfect display. Very good uniformity. I removed the disastrous matte sparkle AR film that AOU puts on ALL of their TN panels. The perceived contrast, colors and clarity increase is amazing. Ships with original box and items. One side-effect of removing the AR film is the polarizer layer underneath will show diagonal lines that are mostly unable to see with the display on (see pictures). There are some instances (such as solid grey or lighter backgrounds) that you can see the "ghosting" of the diagonal lines. In games, it is virtually unnoticeable. You will have to weigh the detriment of these diagonal lines versus the amazing benefits of having one of the only high refresh gloss 2560x1440 165 Hz G-Sync monitors in the world.

The monitor will be shipped USPS Priority insured via a military APO post office (takes ~10 days to most addresses in the lower 48). These diagonal lines are not a cause for return and hence return is not warranted with the sale. The lower price reflects that. $379 shipped. 100% positive feedback.

Was this monitor non gloss (like matte finish)? Why would you want it gloss? Glws.

It's a risky procedure, why do it? Some people prefer super reflective glossy unprotected display with better clarity over highly matte protected surface. Glossy can be hard to use though unless you literally control your whole room lighting and what you wear, even then you're likely to see yourself in a glossy monitor if you're light color skinned like most people. The contrast and clarity is improved as long as removing the film did no damage. Near glossy is kind of the best but many panel makers don't bother to offer it Instead they ruin many nice panels with matte top layers. Glossy monitors still have a top protective layer, many laptops tend to have glossy displays as well as other smaller mobile devices. You gotta be careful with these DIY glossy with no top film but if someone wants one and doesn't want to DIY it themselves they can buy it here from someone who has done the work already.

Thank you for the explanation. I guess that if the panel gets to see better, and reproduces the color in a better way I can find it reasonable, because, in my experience, using glossy panels always makes you see all reflections, lights etc.
Thanks again, and cheers!
To the OP, glws, nice monitor. Free bump!
Cheers!

Disagree with above, reflections is not that big of an issue as long as you don't have a light source behind you. Glossy benefits greatly outweigh the risks. Very tempting!!!
