    Without checking the forum
    I just bought PG27AQ, i was pleased to unpack it during the day.
    I checked for dead pixels, ran some nice 4K videos.
    Then this evening in a darker environment, i restarted the pc.
    First, it doesnt seem to restart the monitor until windows was loaded (i guess my rampage V isnt that slow haha)
    But then i noticed A TERRIBLE yellow bleed. Especially on the lower left side as you did.
    it is also in the corners, but less (where the OSD controls are also a bit more).
    I dont think i will exchange it, because i am lucky with no dead pixels and a great experience. I do play loads of games...
    Reading many forums and seeing many ppl suffer from bleeding, even LG and ACER monitors, i guess it is a lottery!
    I will however write a spicy email to asus because i am a dedicated fan of the ROG and this is also bad!
    I guess i will need to live with it, since i dont plan to try 10 other monitors.. reading this forum, they probably have it all.
    OR can someone actually acknowledge that they have a perfect panel?
    Keep writing in this forum ppl, so that asus really gets it fixed !!
    I wonder if the new 34 WQHD has it also???? please tell me.

    I think rma it, have it exchanged, that's unacceptable, you even see it in normal use. I think they will agree if you show them some photos.

    Well, it is only noticeable in a very dark room with dark back. During the day, i cannot see it.
    even if the picture is black. Coming eve/night, you can tell even on the windows 10 startup cave image.
    I did arrange a meeting to exchange the monitor with another one, but i am afraid the new one will be worse!
    if you understand me.
    Let me see if i can try to post a picture lateron. But I think, because of the fact they have a very very small bezel, and transportation might
    make the panel looser than it is, you cannot find a good one.
    I just checked loads of other manufacturers, even DELL and others have it worse than mine.
    Is there someone that fixed it? by using pressure or inserting plastic?

    Cheers !

    @Bcheck: Sure as hell it isn't a buyers problem to fix their mistakes....you would just probably void the warranty by trying to fix it manually. With they money you paid for them you/we all should expect quality not trash.

    Dude, get your money back and buy a decent brand monitor instead, that's my advice.

    Why would you pay so much for a high end monitor only to have to live with a terrible panel?!

    @Dysternaut:
    It isnt as bad and certainly not 'annoying' , no dead pixels or other problems, but you are right, i paid 828 euro.
    Tell me what a good monitor is with these specs :

    60hz - 4K - IPS - 4MS or 5MS - 27 or 28 inch. - G-Sync

    I will give them 1 chance , they promised me a brand new one (the same because i like the specs). If that is bad.
    I need your advice guys.. is EiZO anygood? is there a big problem with for instance 8ms in strategy games, i play lots of DiabloIII type games

    Thanks for all the help !!

    @Bcheck, well, needless to say you have to exchange it judging from that picture and i am quite sure asus sees it same way. Bleed is even visible on coloured background. I hope you get better unit next. I think you will. There are not many 4k g-sync monitors available i think.
