Thanks Will0w. What kind of monitors are you refering to? Sorry for the question... I could just Google it but wanted to know your opinion on the ones to check ( 1440p not 4K ).

Thank you so much

So my question to owners, are you enjoying it and advise buying this monitor? ( this will be mainly for movies, series, gaming like Apex, Overwatch, Fifa and some Racing stuff )
its excellent for fast paced games (I use it to play BF4, Fifa, pCars, Dirt rally, etc)

but since now nvidia supports freesync, I would buy the cheaper freesync models - no point in purchasing gsync only monitors anymore

Yeah, the issue is that there aren't many 31.5 screens that are "officially compatible". The only one in the Nvidia list is a 1080p from Acer

I tried my 38" XR ( Freesync ) and it didn't go that well since i got black screens for 2 seconds now and then ... :x

6th monitor. Some of the worst BLB and uniformity lighting issues I have ever seen on any monitor or TV literally ever.

With all this clouding, blacks look significantly less deep than previous ones I had and overall dark scenes look much more glowing.

That looks pretty bad. It's a shame they borked the firmware and there still is a quality lottery in the end too.

Still better than ANY 1440p AHVA IPS monitor based on AUO panel for the past few years lol.

It's weird I've noticed you have it in the same most notable areas, though yours are probably less visible:

It's like a consistent manufacturing issue :/

I don't know if I should try to replace this one too.

Also when I lifted the styrofoam backing in the package, the monitor was stuck to it and fell out and onto the front styrofoam and I am worried it caused some of this on the right side

Mine was fine as fine can be for an LCD if I remember right. You can see my camera settings, they are set to expose any small issues. Many of the patterns of BLB are repeated on different units of one monitor, often caused by mounting points, pressure from plastic frame, even how the panel itself is clamped in it's metal frame. Or in case of Samsung curved rubbish due to how they curve it and ruin it.

The Q3279VWFD8 in comparison, that I did keep unlike 32GK850G, has more BLB, it has top right edge but the rest is pretty fine, on that one top edge seems to be have BLB on some units.

You can find this AUO VA panel in LG with minimal BLB for an LCD but you have to be OK with all the other drawbacks of the panel and monitor, and win a lottery in terms of other possible defects at the same time. Which I didn't with my one unit so back it went and more I did not try since it was way too blurry, poor viewing angles and slow response time for me.

Some monitors are a royal pain to get out of a box and assemble, some are super easy. As long as you don't drop it on something sharp or too high onto a corner of polystyrene, you should be fine.
