I've finished talking to them already. Just gonna take a picture of the screen info menu, all that matters if i get a newer manufactured panel or not. If i get it back and it's the same date then they either fixed it or replaced it with another panel that's exactly the same.
Good luck! Please keep us posted on how it goes

Chips: RTD2797UPM
Panel: INX M270KCJ K7B
Date: 20180929 Version 0.04

Seems like mine is Sept 2018 but box it came in says Dec 2018 lol..

Edit: I've got one green pixel on a black screen.

Mine was made on the same day but box says Nov. 2018 not December. Monitor has been on 12+hours. No dead pixels or flashing detected. Minor back-light bleed but doesn't bother me. I'm using DP not HDMI.

Did you use the pixel finding programs? You most likely won't see it unless you use the pixel programs to find them. I don't care much about stuck pixels too, just the flickering is scary because it might get worse over time. I'm also using DP too.

Yes I actually used the one you posted. Thanks :)
I like the image on this monitor better than the 4k image on my ASUS 28" 4K monitor (MG28UQ) that I've had since late 2016 (3 year warranty nearly up!).

Monitor seems to run hotter than others ones i have, maybe it's overheating?
Hm... I haven't really noticed for mine, but then again all my previous monitors radiated a fair amount of heat so maybe I'm just used to that

Wow talk about impeccable timing to have scored this deal just as your other warranty is ending! Lol

So, i bought 2 monitors. Opened the 2nd one yesterday, much worse flickering and also another stuck pixel but in the corner.

5 hours screen time and i counted about 5+ flickers, the flickering was huge too, covered 1/4 of the screen. I have no clue how to troubleshoot this, requested RMA for both.

Edit: Back on the first monitor i opened, just flickered as i posted this. I'm sad :( lol.

Does the flickering occur on desktop during browsing?

Or while gaming?

Browsing mainly, movies in full screen. It's hard to notice in games, lots of moving colors and it goes really quick. But the second monitors flicker is much worse than the 1st, and more frequent too.

Just a thought (not sure if it'll work), but I'm wondering if running AMD's Relive tool in the background would be able to capture these types of desktop screen anomalies?

Perhaps worth a try to see what it records in a 6 hr period?

Won't work, you need a recording device onto the monitor itself like a camera. The flickering isn't going to happen on windows, just on the monitor screen.

Darn, I need to find a spare camera that I can run all day while I'm at work
