    Very easy to notice dust specks and other flaws in the screen. Went through 3 more monitors at my local shop, that makes 8 in total. 7 out of 8 monitors all had dead or stuck pixels, or immovable...

    I just tried a 3rd one. This one has no BLB at all and is nice and uniform. And bam, either a large dust speck or scratch underneath the LCD in the right-center of the screen! Tried to flick it away...

    Lol. I was a tad angry. I'm still highly frustrated with all of it, currently monitor-less and using my laptop. My frustration goes back to the Acer XB270, I went through several and gave up (all had...

    It's an amazing monitor...if you get a good one. I'm on my 2nd and it will be going back as well. The 2nd one had a QC passed sticker on it. 1st one had horrible BLB at bottom left and a pressure...

    You need a hardware device (colorimeter) and software (i.e., DisplayCal) that work together to calibrate and then measure screen uniformity, color, luminance, etc.

    I just returned mine for the same reason and also went back to my 144hz TN. A nearly 700 kelvin difference in color temp from top to bottom of (an $800) monitor is totally unacceptable. Good riddance.

    Crashcourse316- how long have you had your monitors? I ask because after 2 weeks my BLB has decreased and I don't have a problem with it. The main issue I have is with uniformity, both of yours suck...

    Yours looks like it is visible during normal usage? If so I'd return it. Here are pics of mine both a white screen and black. I've had mine for almost 2 weeks, the BLB has decreased just a bit which...

    Thanks for verifying I was reading things correctly :). I'm torn, I would love onboard WiFi, that's the only immediate benefit I'd get from switching to the Alpha. I think I prefer the regular Hero...
