    won't it be easier if you show your "dead pixel" instead?

    (trying to figure out why a dude needing help would go such a roundabout way of getting others to post their dead pixels as validation or non validation) :/
    no siggy, saw stuff that made me sad.

    I cant do this becuase I send it to the shop and take my money back. But it was 4th panel and I think maybe it is normal cause this tiny spots very small -_- and i will buy new one

    that makes sense. okay.

    well, i... uhh, i think i might have seen it on a friend's monitor. as for how it looked like, i didn't save that picture back then (sorry). i did google it up, and it pretty much looked like this:

    i perhaps remembered using my fingernails to rub-scratch-massage the dot and that might have helped a bit.


    oy, when you're going to buy a new one, right?
    download that thing... eh crap. i can't remember the name of one program you can run to color cycle your screen, right in front of the shop-owner; to check for dead pixels. just in case.

    i'll include the name of the program once i remembered da name. sorry.


    edit:
    found it. https://www.passmark.com/products/monitortest.htm

    or alternatively, if the boss won't let you install programs to the laptop before buying: you can open sites that color cycle upon clicks. i found plenty straight from google with this search string: "dead pixel test".

    Thanks man. I really appreciate it. I call to the shop and ask them for ASUS PG279Q with manufacture date 04/2017. And it will come to me next week.

    Your shop can't assure new products have particular batches or manufacturing dates, lol. Unless they handle and stock large volumes of this product and these dates are marked on the outside of the packaging AND they're willing to hand-pick pieces outside the normal order of things.

    Vendors just get whatever product batches they get, as do their distributors further up the supply chain. I wouldn't put great faith in the assurances of a small shop, the end result (no matter how complex the story) is likely going to be whatever "random" product batch they obtain.

    I can say my experience is that many warehouses have some sort of rigid "first in, first out" policy for stock rotation. And warehouse workers are going to always take items from the top of the pile, they're less willing to dig through (or cut open more) shelves and pallets searching for particular pieces, moving things from pile to pile takes effort and takes time and is even pointless when "they're all the same". Time is money, and without somehow paying more money you usually can't buy this extra effort.

    You might always get lucky or unlucky, with the production batch you prefer or with any other. It doesn't hurt to ask.

    Sorry man but you are didn't right. I wrote to the ASUS and they give me answer about the Can the shop know the date of the manufacturing the some of monitor. And answer is - yes they can. The SN number of the monitor is placed on the box. And SN contain the month and the year of the product.
    Here is the email from asus to me:
    The date of production is determined by the serial number of the equipment. The first symbol of the serial number indicates the year of production (1-9 = 2001-2009, A = 2010, B = 2011, C = 2012, D = 2013, E = 2014, F = 2015.), The second character is the month number production of this device (1-9 - January-September, A-October, B-November, C-December). On the monitor boxes, its serial number is indicated, so you can see it and determine the production date.

    As I said "... and these dates are marked on the outside of the packaging ..." How it's encoded is irrelevant as long as it's still (somehow) readable.

    Maybe we're misunderstanding each other. Hope you do get the particular batch/product you asked for, just don't be surprised if you don't.
