    Can you get the 2 year warranty after you purchased? Is it the square trade one?

    50 quid sounds like a reasonable amount for 4 years total warranty.

    Mine is also doing this. Look a few posts back and you'll see my post with the exact same problem. It's nothing to do with the cables as I've tried multiple cables and different PC's and it does it on both the DP and HDMI ports.

    It's also getting worse. It started with being able to just turn it off and back on once, now I have to turn it off and on up to 8 or 9 times until I get a picture. Weirdly once it does settle, it's fine for hours & hours.

    I've arranged for an RMA.

    @NikTheSHNIK

    How are your preorders looking on the F model? I've had to return mine for a refund. If I preorder am I going to get into this next batch arriving early May?

    You should be fine I believe to be in on the next batch.

    @ me tomorrow, to remind me, and I'll take a look and let you know for certain.

    Hello, first post here. Purchased this monitor today, it has quite a lot of BLB.

    I notice it when I enter a dark scene in game but then stop noticing it. Do you guys think this level of BLB is acceptable?

    Lowest brightness:

    50% brightness:

    Top left is looking pretty rough but really it's whatever you find acceptable. Some people on these forums have gone through 5+ returns to get the perfect screen in their eyes (not this model by the way, just other threads on this forum).
    For me personally, I can live with BLB more than I can live with a dead pixel.

    EmojilessPsyko - my 34gk950f looks similar in the corners, maybe a touch less bleed than yours. Only you can decide what is acceptable, but I don't think that amount is uncommon per se. White led bias lighting will help it be less perceptible in use.

    White and black uniformity do not look like much / any improvement over the previous generation of panels... I guess the 1900r curve does not help with this.

    After some weeks of waiting mine finally arrived today, not from OC I'm sorry to say I just couldn't afford their £1149 price tag.
    Pleased to say it arrived fully working, and screen unifomity seems better than most going by some of the images posted on here though of course it's not perfect.
    I'd appreciate some help with settings.I've read some review and followed their calibration suggestions but some more input from those who already have there's setup nicely would be helpful. I realise not all monitors are the same so shall use as a guide. I am tempted to invest in a calibration tool I'd like to know it's setup as best it can be.

    Wonder what percentage of these monitors were returned under RMA and what under DSR. The ones returned under DSR will be resold as new or packaged into B-stock? I have a feeling that the ones that were returned under DSR will be then sold as new, which means somebody somewhere is getting previously returned monitor that has bad light bleed and or dead pixels.

    Tough times, I am still very much interested in taking the gamble but the defect rate on these monitors seem to be quite high after going through this thread.
