Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

I'll post some of my impressions when I get it next week. I don't have any professional measuring tools so it won't be precise, but yeah. My frame of reference is primarily going to be coming from using a Samsung cfg70, which has exceptional contrast, "quantum dot" colors, and looks nice in still i...

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

Anyway, once I dialed in the colors and settings to something I find agreeable to look at, I now notice some pixel inversion artifacts. It seems more apparent whenever a bright color suddenly overlaps a darker color, and is primarily visible as vertical interlacing. Upon digging around to see how c...

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

The more I use this monitor, the more noticeable it is that the green channel in particular is way overblown. It kinda gives a sickly hue to everything. I was able to (mostly) fix it with some tweaking, but I had to move a lot of levers, so to speak, to get there. On gamer profile 1 (the only one th...

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

For 120-144hz modes maximum working VT is 1580-1582, looks like a firmware limitation even it haves dotclock headroom. Stil better then default, though. Btw, same maximum VT is mentioned in Benq XL2540 topic as max VT for 180-182hz mode. That also poitns that Benqs and LG uses the same Mstar displa...

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

I posted some of my impressions about this monitor in the thread I made asking for buying advice, here. But since much of my opinion was directly comparing the monitor to two others I have in my house, I figured I'd avoid cluttering this thread with paragraphs of info.

Re: Trying to decide on a new monitor

First impressions, with these qualifiers: I am sensitive to pixel response time-based motion blur. I have used a high refresh VA panel in the past, and found that even a 60hz IPS panel offered better motion clarity, since VA pixels are sluggish. Specific to the VA I was using (an early Samsung CFG70...

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

Thank you for the replies. It sounds like the monitor will meet my needs, since I only ever plan to run it either at a fixed 240hz or a VRR mode with an upper limit of 240hz. The only potential loss I may suffer is if I wanted to drop to 120hz to ease the burden on my gpu while using strobing modes,...

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

What about VRR modes (specific to this monitor, freesync) In a fixed 120hz scenario, based on your post, I can understand that the monitor would hold for 1/240 refresh cycles, then spit out the entire frame at 1/240 speed on the next refresh cycle, resulting in slightly higher delay than a 120hz nat...

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

240 hz Monitors should never be used @144hz because this will add a bit of input lag. Only for 240Hz monitors that are stuck in fast-scanout (1/240sec refresh cycle scanouts). That, by definition, requires a little pre-buffering for lower refresh rates. Which is why some 240Hz monitors aren't the w...
