Backlight bleed galore!
Pros: This screen offers so much for the low price. - Colors are vivid and bright (HDR mode is spot on!) - Refresh rate at 165hz out of the box with the supplied DP cable. - Image quality is great - No dead pixels. - Arrived on time and box was in perfect condition
Cons: Reason why only gave three eggs is because this screen has a ridiculous amount of back light bleed. The second powered it up I could see a fair amount of light on the edge of the screen. I did the black screen test in the dark and you clearly see five huge spots on the edges. P.S My 10yo Acer IPS panel had no back ligh bleed at all, that is why I considered buying another Acer product.
Overall Review: I will keep the screen as read so many horror stories of people getting worse products in exchange. I don't know if it's Acer's QC that is not up to par but it's too bad because this a perfect 'bang for your buck' screen. If you no picky on back light bleed and looking for a screen with an ok contrast ratio, I would definitely recommend this screen.
