Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

Keep in mind that BLB changes over time. Mine had some very slight BLB in the upper right-ish region, and now it's completely gone. Later, there was a tiny bit of BLB on the right middle that wasn't there before. And then later on that got reduced to almost zero, but something appeared somewhere el...

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

Overall, I am quite happy with it. There was some drama with the shipment...the ASUS box that it was originally shipped in got completely waterlogged and was a mushy cardboard mess, it arrived re-packaged by UPS, so, clearly, they were the ones that allowed that to happen. Water had even penetrated ...

Re: Experience & Opinion: 240hz displays are blurry

I wasn't happy with the first 240hz monitor I bought. I felt the overdrive was poorly tuned and that I was giving up too much in image quality in order to get the extra frames. I am firmly in the camp that is prepared to give up a few ms in response times for higher quality images that you can obser...

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

Actually I couldn't wait lol. I looked around at some of the 2018 model IPS monitors, which was starting to break into ultrawide and 4k areas. It doesn't seem like they've made any major breakthroughs since the 2015/2016 panels. Resolutions are getting higher and the electronics surrounding the pane...

Re: LG 27GK750F-B - 240Hz, 27" 1ms Blur reduction, Freesync

Thanks, I tested the CRU settings that K2Viper posted a few pages back.. and unfortunately, it looked it a little worse for me. Right now the "gamer1" profile out of the box seems to be the best in terms of quality. This is the best gaming screen so far because of the 240hz 1ms blur reduction. Howe...

Re: Xb252Q Crosstalk 144hz ULMB (versus Samsung CFG73 'Faste

If Samsung ever produces a scanning backlight monitor that uses an IPS or TN panel, it is very likely going to be the highest performing 'ULMB'-like device out there. Their calibration and sync is top notch - generally the only visible artifacting you'll see is produced by the sluggish response time...

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

I think I will just wait until AU Optronic's new IPS panels come out some time this year . If they can comfortably drive the response time down to 3-4ms without overshoot artifacts, the combination of color clarity, viewing angles, and motion performance would be about exactly what I'm looking for. ...

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

Thanks. This confirms that new 240hz panels at both 24.5 and 27" posibly do not change depending on 60 vs 240hz. So maybe that is only a thing of 23.8" monitors. Someone posted in the LG thread that they saw a very slight gamma shift when switching modes. I am not sure if they measured that with a ...

Re: LG 27GK750F-B - 240Hz, 27" 1ms Blur reduction, Freesync

After using this monitor for a few days, I'm much less impressed than I was with my day one, fresh out of the box experience. I've revised my "review" accordingly. I don't know if I just got a bad panel, or if my anecdotes represent the typical user experience. The hunt for a suitable replacement be...

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

Going TN is not a bad thing really. TN monitors can look very good color wise and I think the viewing angles issues are usually overblown. Just sit normally at You desk with eyes at abouit 2/3rd level of a monitor and it's all good. + TN have best response times(so least ghosting), fastest input la...
