    I got home and I just did a test at home with this, on my Asus Rog Swift. It does flickers when I move the window around. Additionaly, if I have 2 windows open, then moving the first window causes both windows to flicker (the one I'm moving and the one stationary). If I leave that test image on, in an open window, then it causes weird lines and rectangular shapes to show up elsewhere on the screen.

    I tried googling "What is pixel dot inversion on LCD", trying to find more information on it. There wasn't a whole lot of info on it. Other than some more test screens to test. There were a couple of forum posts about it. Some people said that all LCDs do this to some extent. Some are more noticeable than others. And if it happens, it doesn't necessarily mean something is broken. My causal googling of this is by no means the authoritative answer on it. I'm, like the rest of you, own this monitor and am concerned as to if my monitor is working correctly. It's an expensive monitor, that has the promise of being a kick ass display for gaming. So far, it only does this flickering when using one of these test screens. I have not experienced this while playing games or using the desktop normally.

    Of course it's not good to read people here having problems with their monitor. Does this product have a higher than average % of problems than other LCD monitors? I dunno. In my personal experience with computer monitors, generally I get one and it lasts several years working as intended. Eventually it gets replaced with a bigger, or better one. I still have 2 Dell 24" widescreen monitors. One that is 10 years old with dvi/vga/component inputs. That still works, although it's currently unplugged sitting in storage.

    Here is mine BTW. October build date. 3rd replacement unit. Still have pixel inversion which is less an issue (might even be normal behavior) than the blurry text issues I had with the July units. I still get vertical lines during high contrast flashes etc and on certain moving objects. Also have a dead magenta pixel towards the right edge of the screen. 3 units tried. Only this one works remotely as advertised and I have little confidence it won't crap out like the others did.



    Those who value their time remotely, should stay away from this thing. I have been an ASUS advocate for years but this experience will permanently change that. If I had not purchased this and known ahead of time what I was in for, I would have waited until the technology is perfected. This hardware is hardly bata worthy and ASUS should think twice releasing smoothing like this again.

    What seems to be happening is that something is crapping out on the unit after x amount of hours as my original display worked well until it didn't and many others have had similar experiences.
    I agree 100%, it's been 3 weeks since i RMAed the first unit i got (July built) which was working fine for a month until it crapped out (blurry text and all) and can't say i am optmistic about getting a unit that will work as it should for a period of time greater than a couple of monhs. What is really unacceptable is that although this issue seems to be widespread enough for ASUS to come out and state what's the cause of the problem and what they plan to do about it, they are completely silent. What a mess

I'm not paying $800 for a monitor that doesn't work right....also get pretty bad screen door look when I move around fast in games.
    I don't think I do. Or it's just very light and I'm not picking up on it. My eyes are old.

    Here is what I get. The video isn't awesome but it's done with my phone quickly just now.

    Maybe you guys see something I'm not. I do see some very slight patchy lighting that is more pronounced in the video than I can see with my eyes, but my Dell u3011 does that too. I'm not seeing the obvious line flicker Astro1 is. I dunno. If this is the problem it is too small for me to worry about. Then again, the monitor could crap out tomorrow. Who knows. I'm going to keep enjoying it for now.

    Is this flicker suppose to be considered a bad thing? It flickered on my swift monitor and also another Asus monitor I own.

    Well you needn't have bothered remembering where you had left your phone and then using it to post a seriously low quality, slow shutter speed video. It was a complete waste of time for all. It shows you have no idea what video is all about, and this is the reason why you will NEVER notice any problems with your monitors if they unfortunately appear. The phrase "Ignorance is bliss" comes to mind.

    LOL. Actually what is apparent here is someone putting in the appropriate amount of effort into the task at hand. If you think I would spend more than 2 minutes posting a video of a problem I do not have for the sake of a few agitated kids posting off topic on this thread then you are sorely mistaken.

    The phrase "sour grapes" comes to mind.

    Back on topic... These have been coming back in (and then quickly out!) of stock quickly this week on amazon.com, newegg.com, and tigerdirect.com. I snatched up one from TD and it will arrive on Monday. Wish me luck that it does not have any of these issues. If it does, I've got 30 days to return it to TD. I tried the Acer XB280HK and it had its own issues that I wasn't fond of. Now I'm going to see what this 144Hz business is all about!

Folks are simply buying them as fast as they are being produced.

    Like Marshall said, a pre-order may be the way to go for a while longer. I was visiting Newegg, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Microcenter, and Best Buy every day, a few times a day until I bumped into one. Took me a few weeks of looking every single day. The second monitor I stumbled into walking through the local microcenter. The manager said he had 10 the day before. They're going like hot cakes.

    Still on the ASUS payroll are we?
