    Don't think it is the fact that it is IPS that leads itself to bleed but more that it is a cutting edge panel that AUO seem to have cut some corners on. A lot of times I see people conflate IPS glow with BLB while they are two completely different things.

    Given jp0209s experience I would look to holding on to what you get for a couple of weeks and see if it improves and then return it if there is no change. too bad about his uniformity though.

    And how can you tell ips glow from backlight bleed then?

    IPS glow would be the general lightness on the blacks, its the light blue you see in some of the pictures, the yellow around the edges is BLB thats from the backlight leaking around the edges. All panels can have BLB, IPS glow is unique to IPS and IPS type panels.

    I found this from internet:

    "To make it easier to tell the differences between those 2:
    Backlightbleed is independent from viewing angle and distance.
    IPS glow is dependent from viewing angle and distance.
    "

    I only see those lighter areas looking directly to monitor, if i look at them from angle they disappear. Does it mean it is ips glow instead of blb because it is dependent of angle?

    Legolas- theTN panel sales rep extraordinaire! and also My opinion on this matter

    I feel like every post I have seen you make is telling someone to buy the PG278Q...its completely different technology. In my opinion if you are buying a 2k or 4k resolution monitor TN panels are not the way to go at this time. with the ASUS and ACER failure of shipping out this AU optronics panel, there will be someone (dell, or other) that is going to make sure they get a good panel and it will be the same price as these are but they work. What I have done is return all four of my bad Asus PG279Q's and 1 of the Acer equivalent, and bought a $250 1080p Asus 144hz TN panel monitor while I wait for the "not broken" version of the IPS 144hz(165z) panels. The difference you will see with the resolution increase will only bring down your frame rates while you wish you could have an IPS panel that was good. so just save yourself the extra $$$ and buy a short term solution that will satisfy you until the new IPS panels are out.

    The EIZO Foris is shipping with AU optronics panels as well, also 144hz... These monitors are not plagued by these issues.
    I'm almost convinced that the issues are related to the design of the casing/frame of the PG279Q. Asus is using a special version of the panel to enable this super slim bezel.
