    Here's an interesting link that i found from some forum, check if your serial number is in those numbers: http://pcdiy.asus.com/2016/03/on-bac...aming-monitor/0

    Mine is not.

    What about customers from EU? I received my 3rd one today and I'm going to return it due to BLB again. It's January 2016 batch apparently..

    WOW. But what about the rest of the "World" aside from North America?

    Mine was produced in Jan 2016 and the serial number is outside of the range yet it does have some BLB. I know cameras can exaggerate this so I'm trying to evaluate this with my own eyes. My problem is that I only have a few days left until my e-tailer's 30 day return policy to ends.

    I did switch to sRGB mode which did reduce the perceived problem.

    However, I've recently noticed that I can see part a broken vertical line on the left hand edge as if there is a image behind the screen. Is this normal?

    Finally, I have never been able to put the monitor in 165hz mode. I can check the box in the OST but it never sticks and Windows 10 only shows the 144hz max. I even tried plugging in the DisplayPort cable to my other (SLI) GTX 970 - the issue still exists.

    I need some convincing here. Does any of this seem normal after "the unit has already passed advanced screening"?

    About the 165hz...you have to press the joystick down one more time when it prompts about changing hz then it will reboot itself. I had to figure it out too myself.

    The broken vertical line doesn't sound normal to me, i am not seeing anything like that.

    The thing is, if the blb issues bothers you in real life usage or bothers you at all, then i think you should return. I am keeping mine because it doesn't bother me and they won't rma it anyway. It could get just worse if i forced it to change.

    Well after turning down the brightness using sRGB, I think I'm good on BLB. Here's a pick of that left hand vertical light issue. This is the second game where I've noticed this:

    And related to this...do you guys notice that the screen does not stretch fully to the bezel? On mine, there is about a 16th of an inch margin on all four side between the visible screen and the bezel.

    That worked! Wow, that is a little wonky and definitely not self explanatory. Thanks!

    I think you should show that pic of that vertical thing to some asus rma guy, just send them a pic. It certainly doesn't look right.
