    I agree. Visible all the time, but off has the least amount ingame

    Could a firmware update fix this?

    I read somewhere where the person plugged the monitor into an AMD graphics card and said that there was no vertical lines. But I haven't tried it first hand so I don't know.

    If that's true, then it might be related to Nvidia drivers or something

    Has anyone heard from ASUS on the pixel inversion/ vertical line artifacts issue?

    I got lucky and managed to snag a monitor from Best Buy a couple of weeks ago, manufacturing date says October 2014. At first I barely noticed the pixel inversion, but now I notice it VERY much and it is EXTREMELY distracting, especially in a colorful game like Dota 2. Everything else about the monitor is perfect...no dead pixels, very even backlighting, everything is crisp and clear. But the pixel inversion is so distracting I'm almost considering just using my old IPS monitor for the time being.

    I'm worried about RMA'ing my monitor and just have Asus say theres nothing wrong with it, or saying they "fixed" it but didn't really fix the pixel inverison.

    Not true. I ran it on a R9 280X the first couple of days and wondered what the strange vertical lines was about. Then I switched to a GTX 970 and saw the same thing and started to investigate what it was. I have now returned two monitors and will not try a third unless Asus acknowledges the problem or people consistently reports that the problem is gone in newer batches.

    I don't think so, I can see the stripes on the OSD, if I keep spamming the button that can add a timer or a crosshair, forgot it's name.

    So I've taken a few pictures that clearly shows the issues with the pixel inversion - its starting to look like a voltage regulation problem.

    here you can see with the two windows next to each other, lines go across the entire screen causing visual artifacts.
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...TjA&authuser=0

    Here is just one screen maximized in the browser:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...eU0&authuser=0

    Here is a different test, which in the first screen is fine when the browser is maximized, but in the second screen I've made the window smaller and the entire image changes color and exhibits visual artifacting:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...eU0&authuser=0
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...UTg&authuser=0

    Here are a couple of images from within a colorful 2D game where the vertical lines are EXTREMELY distracting (these pictures don't do it justice..just imagine parts of the screen look like they are from a lower resolution CRT display):
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...U2M&authuser=0
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx...U2M&authuser=0

    Lastly, I would like anyone who claims that they are not having any of the pixel iversion problems to go to this website: http://www.techmind.org/lcd/ and open this test in your browser: http://www.techmind.org/lcd/greendot.html and post PROOF that your monitor is not displaying any of these problems.

    I will probably try to RMA my monitor, but if this is a widespread problem like I believe it is, then I'm starting to think I'm stuck with an $800 flawed piece of hardware. Again, post PROOF you do not have these issues before you start claiming otherwise.

    The last two pics show it perfect the in game ones. I believe it is a widespread problem. I feel the exact same as you that im stuck with in my case a $1300 flawed piece of hardware. It is really annoying that it got good reviews anyone that has spent sometime with it would pick up these issues. As soon as another manufacturer can bring something out with the same specs im jumping boat. This is first and last time for me I buy an asus monitor. I don't use 3d on it at all cause to be quite frank it looks like ****. These lines just put you off way to much. Its even more of a kick in the teeth that they can be seen in 2d too. Im not very happy I have paid top dollar and sorry asus but your rog swift monitor for the money totally sucks. If this issue could be fixed with firmware or something then great. But the lack of response to me just means asus are going to shovel it under the carpet.
