    Who are you kidding? There was only 1 person that actually got a normal panel.

    Got two PG279Q and I am totally satisfied with them.
    Both have no dead and/or stuck pixels and work pretty much flawless aside from the reported driver/power consumption problem with higher refresh rates (which is NVidia's fault afaik) and gsync hiccups which are also driver related.

    If anything I have a very mild case of backlight bleeding like in the "cherry picked sample" picture above - but you can only notice this in a dark room and a pure black image, so honestly idgaf.

    I moved to these monitors from two EIZO Foris 2333 BK and I must say that I am very much satisfied with both of the PG279Q monitors.

    Set to darkroom mode and see if the light bleed is gone.
    Do a color calibrate for your monitor in Windows and try the test again.

    Uuuuuu NO. Nothing will fix backlight bleeding as it is a defect in the panel hardware. Besides, ULMB disables Gsync and causes severe eye strain due to the strobing backlight at very low frequencies (refresh rate). It causes significantly more eye strain than PWM dimming.

    Partially incorrect. You can combine ULMB and G-Sync, but not at the fastest frame rates.

    ULMB and G-Sync together look great on my PG278Q at 60Hz and 85Hz, look terrible at 120Hz, and ULMB won't even run at 144Hz.

    It wouldn't be an issue if your fps is already capped by GPU performance or multi-display limitations. Although I tend to keep mine set at 120Hz, of course, and it's reasonable for other people to expect maximal performance from their Swifts.

    In addition, it is a IPS panel, so there will be some backlight bleeding. Every IPS LCD monitor in the market has some black light bleeding. So, people should not RMA the panel. It is a feature of the this model..

    This review is pretty good.

    Stop spewing nonsense. Backlight bleeding defect is a feature of an $800 monitor??? That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my life. You obviously have not read the other posts. tftcentral was shipped a cherry picked monitor with no backlight bleeding as I has already PROVEN in my previous posts.

    You obviously have no idea what backlight bleed vs IPS glow is....

    Everyone who receives a monitor with the defects I have described should do an RMA. We are tied of this Panel Lottery game.

    The fiasco continues....

    This thread is even bigger, most people getting defective panels there also. This is a complete joke at this point and Asus needs to respond.

    Mine is fine. Lovin' it so far. You have to realize that the happy people don't often come on forums to post about it so all you're hearing is the negatives. The happy people are busy playing on their new fine ASUS monitors.
