Not meaning to hijack the thread.
But speaking of backlight uniformity - is there any known way to replace edge backlighting with a direct one? I know it involves a lot of work, icluding prism replacement and maybe installing a new LED driver. Could there be any pre-made kits? Is there any monitor modding forum threads or other resources?
I've recently been trying to improve backlight uniformity on my monitor (MG279Q) via experimenting on metal frame pressure points, and the results were quite weak with a lot of time investment.
