Moniter clouding?

Go to solution Solved by Psittac,

it looks like someone carried it against their chest...... no idea if that'll increase the bleed but it makes sense.  Backlight bleed is one of those things that I don't worry about, it's very rare that I actually see it but a lot of people, or perhaps the more vocal ones tend to have a lot to say about it.

 

*typically it's in the corners

Just bought this Acer predator CG437K. You can barely see at any point unless it's a nearly all black screen at differnt angles.

thats just backlight bleed hard to get rid of unless you mod it or  exchange it for a new one if iit bothers you bad. thats a commone problem almost all monitors have. looking at it thorpugh the picture will make it look worse than it really is.

Well I bought it as a refurbished model from an official Acer retailer since it was 500 dollars less than a brand new model. Acer did the refurbishing themselves. Playing some games with it I recieved some minor artifacting. I know its typically a GPU issue, but I never had artifacting with my other display. Not sure if its because it was too overclocked in a higher resolution, or the moniter was just faulty. My geuss is that its faulty and I should simply return it for a new full priced moniter. Even though I do have a overclock setting, I dont think it should be doing that on a 2070 super. Though there was mainly issues at the top of the screen, such as flickering. I already did ddu, and a repair install of windows and the issues still persisted. Personally to me it looks like clouding, damage from packaging, or damage from the original owner before it was refurbished. Either way, I'll be returning it and will likely save towards a brand new 43" Asus swift version.

In my experience "refurbished" items are B stock or rather items that someone returned because they were far to picky and they're often sent back out with no repairs, just giving the item a second chance at someone who didn't pay a premium not being so picky *edit: obviously there is some sort of QC to weed out the blatantly broken.  This is just a hunch but it makes sense.

 

*edit again: also there are ton's of product's that are returned because the original purchaser had buyers remorse, they can't sell it new again so a refurbished product is a second lease before going to bulk auctions for pennies on the dollar.

You may be right. Though I'm not interested in inheriting someone elses issues personally. Something about the moniter was messing with my software or visuals overall. Had to do a lot of optimizing just to reinstall my orginal display settings on my other moniter, now I have no issues.*edit: also it wasnt under the category of excellent condition, and was actually under very good condition. Apparently clouding or even burn ins could be considered typically wear and tear under acers refurbishing policies.
