    you would be disappointed if you think you might get a perfect monitor no matter what you will always get back light bleed on monitors especially with newer monitors so far from what i heard about this monitor is that it has coil wine and a bit of back light bleed just be ready for anything

    No. Buying a $300 IPS monitor you don't experience BLB at all. So don't defend Asus and their laughable QC like it'd be something as normal as IPS glow.

    As I said before, the amount of BLB has more to do with it being bleeding edge technology and the failure rate of panels being higher than lower tech panels.

    why would i defend asus look at acer x34 launch was horrible just saying not to expect nothing and getting a perfect monitor would probably be dumb even people that receive almost no IPS glow or back light bleed they still have it in there monitor.

    And both Acer and Asus use the same AUO panels.

    For those interested: http://velocitymicro.com/buy-asus-swift-pg348Q.php
    VelocityMicro has sent out an e-mail to those waiting for it, that they have some of the monitors in stock and ready to ship as early as 3/21.
    I myself had never heard of the company/site before, but it seems to be 'decent', according to the reviews I looked up of it.

    I will wait it out with Amazon, as I trust it much better than this random website. Namely, I don't know their methods for RMA or how they handle customer quality complaints.
    There's also no telling just WHERE they've obtained these monitors. Perhaps they got the shipments that have been recalled from the major retailers (Amazon/Newegg) and instead decided to just 'sell them anyway' at risk of poor quality.

    If you want it from the US and are willing for the risk, the option is there for anyone who wants it I suppose.
    Just figured I would let anyone still interested know. I will wait for Amazon, though.
