Well if you are very sure its not on the front of the panel you should be able to get to it but you risk damage to the lcd and the possibility of getting more crap behind the monitor. There should be a few screws around the back bottom edge of the monitor case. Once those are out the the front part of the bessel will unclip from the back of the casing.

Should look sort of like this


Then remove the panel from the power supply if you want. There will be 5 connectors.
On the panel itself there are little metal clips holding the metal bezel in place pop these loose and you can remove the metal bezel holding the LCD panel onto the backlight box.




The lcd panel will be free then but it's extremely fragile and if you lift it off the backlight you also risk dust getting behind the screen. If you bug is actually behind the screen it will be somewhere in that stack up.

Thanks a ton, it's going to drive me nuts since it's right near the middle and shows up on almost all colors. I'm going to try using a airgun first then if that doesn't work I'll try disassembly.

I'm planning on replacing the screen on mine since it shattered during an argument. Really loved it. I could actually feel the response jump when I moved from my VA 60HZ monitor.

Honestly, I'll wait for the reviews of the new Samsung monitor. If it has a great response time and as little lag as the MG279Q, i think it'll be the better choice, if you can spare the extra $100 or so per monitor.

The Nixeus EDG 27 is the best example of the AOU panle at 144hz freesync. It has a worse housing but has a larger stock freesync range, correct sharpness, and very good overdrive. Samsung may be better but I would wait for reviews.

Yeah was looking at the Nixeis to but I have no clue if it'll ever come to Australia and importing it is out of the question, would cost at least $500 per screen plus the price of the screens so I'd end up paying upwards of $4000 AUD plus whatever import duty fees frown.gif.

Should have seen that from your name oops. If you had to choose one today and are ok modifying the freesync range I think I would go with the Asus. I wouldn't want to risk the issues with the Acer and it's bad dead pixel warinty. It's not the best choice today if they where all available to you. I think I would wait for Samsung reviews if you think it will be available to you soon.

Another thing I am not sure how well the curved screen would work for surround. Side note on the Asus the side controls will be blocked on the center and left monitor.

Seen one review on the Samsung CHG70 so far, not looking to good, the screen was super flickery in the video and the viewing angles are basically TN panel angles.

Looks like Asus will probably be the way I go unless something new comes out in the next few months. Gotta be honest Freesync isn't really an issue for me I just want a 144Hz 1440p screen.

While I agree that it's far from a perfect panel housed in the CHG70, it only looked flickery because of strobing (that's a plus, not a con), and TN viewing angles produce more than simply gamma shift like the Samsung's (color inversion from certain angles). So, in all fairness, it's not THAT bad.
