    PG278Q dead pixels

    Few days ago I've bought brand new ASUS PG278Q ROG SWIFT monitor, but unfortunatelly it has few (ca. 5-10) very small
    bright shining points visible on black background. They were hard to see at normal conditions, but from very close distance
    one could see them. I have returned the monitor back to seller and I requested money back. I have decided to buy a monitor
    from another brand because even only one dead pixel, not to mention such amount of brigh-dead pixels, is not acceptable for
    me, especially when we're talking about this class product (I own matherboard, graphics & sound card from ROG line). But...
    I like this ROG SWIFT very much and when the excitement wore off I have decided to give another chance to ROG SWIFT
    purchase. So is it normal to be so many bright pixels or it got to be extremely defective one piece? I would like to
    stress, the pixels were very small, normally hard to see and therefore visible from close distance, but - from other hand - they should be very small due to high resolution...

    Do you have bright dead pixels?

    I have 2 so far.. but its hard to see it if your not close on the monitor. but if I lean close up on it and scan thoroughly on the area I can see a tiny bright pixel.

    On the 1080p Asus 144hz VG248Qe its easy to notice the dead pixel.

    Do you have bright dead pixels?
    My first ROG SWIFT had the symptoms you are describing, 1 bright spot very easily seen on a black background and a dead pixel in the middle of it. It is not normal, I returned my and my replacement ROG SWIFT is picture perfect.

    You know how you say you can easily spot it if you had a black background? Well on mine I cant see it when I'm using on a black background.

    Cause on this fourm site, I cant see the bright pixel on the screen.

    On the faulty monitor you could see it on a black background, the bright spot looked like a water mark and the dead pixel was a yellow color. You could also see it when the PC was turned off but the monitor was turned on, however in that case you just saw the water mark spot. I wish I took a photo of it, its hard to describe.

    Second ROG Swift had also few bright dead pixels. I gave up and bought Iiyama. It appears Asus is not ready to made WQHD monitors .... Maybe in the future.

    I have one dead pixel so far (blue spot on black background). Will Asus and/or the dealer exchange the monitor?
