Q: Hi, im quite interested in purchasing an IPS monitor like Asus PG279Q. And my only concern is - how often do you guys face a heavy backlight bleeding on these ? Do you accept returns if that occurs ? Thanks.

This is a common issue unfortunately, and depending on how bad the backlight bleed is, it may not be accepted back as a fault.

Q: It seems to be that your dead pixel policy does not match the one I have found on ASUS website. According to ASUS is not allowing any bright dead pixels and <= 5 dark dead pixels on purchase. Can you please check it ?
Answer by Website User on 13th June 2017
The warranty you've referred to is ASUS's ZBD policy, which only applies to select monitors. You'd need to contact them directly to get a full list of all applicable monitors to which that particular warranty condition applies. -JakeF

Q: I'm looking to buy a ASUS PG279Q but extremely worried about getting stuck with a £700 product with unusable back lighting. What is your return policy for an IPS monitor like this? I will likely go with the vendor who can fill me with the most confidence that their QC is best, and who has the best return policy when something is wrong.
Answer by Website User on 22nd September 2016
If the monitor is faulty we would arrange a collection for you and offer either a full refund or replacement. -Danlevan

Answer by Website User on 10th June 2016
That's a shame, regardless of manufacturer's edicts, at this price point one dead pixel and excessive bleed is frankly unacceptable.

We also offer a monitor checking service where we would thoroughly check for any problems prior to dispatch. -Danlevan

27", 1440P, 165Hz, IPS, G-Sync and a very sleek design, Great service from CCL all round, Will definitely be shopping here again :-)


April 2019

Good except a bit of glow in the top right corner in dark scenes


April 2019

Delivered nice and quick, packaging was neat with no damages when delivered. So no problems with delivery. Monitor itself is very much quality as well in most areas. Beautiful with the IPS imaging, smooth high refresh rate. Only problem comes from the fact that there are other monitors that may be worth your money, I simply chose the best there is for the quality.
