Re: NEW Benq Zowie Monitors Speculation/Info Thread (XL2546K-B, XL2546K, XL2411K)

My XL2546K definitely doesn't suffer from pixel inversion according to Lagom's Inversion (pixel-walk) test. Well, I don't really do any tests like this, I just either see or don't see freaking vertical lines appearing on the screen during motion, no tests needed! :) Pixel inversion artifacting issu...

Re: NEW Benq Zowie Monitors Speculation/Info Thread (XL2546K-B, XL2546K, XL2411K)

My XL2546K is using the Q250HTN00 A200, to enter the service menu you need to switch off then boot while keeping the 5 way wheel pressed. Thanks, I entered the service menu, the panel name is AUO M250HTN018. Apparently it's not the same panel as XL2546K uses. I checked the panel name of XL2540, acc...

Re: NEW Benq Zowie Monitors Speculation/Info Thread (XL2546K-B, XL2546K, XL2411K)

A few days go I received my Zowie XL2540K, and I gotta say, comparing to XL2546K I'm quite disappointed. XL2540K has pronounced pixel inversion artifacts (vertical lines appearing on the screen in motion), just like both of the older-gen TNs I tested had these artifacts as well (Omen X25f, XL2546), ...

Re: Hp omen x25/25f thoughts?

I've tested HP Omen X 25f and I wasn't really impressed much with this display. My unit of X 25f suffered from significant pixel inversion artifacts (this issue appears to be quite common in TN panels). Also, X 25f's motion clarity in-game looked actually worse to me than on ASUS VG259QM (280 Hz IPS...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Hi, like you, I have been testing for over a month on Vg259qm and XL2546K are two excellent monitors, the best I've ever tried, but I think there is no reason in 2020 to choose TN instead of fast ips, even though I thought zowie has more in terms of reactivity in the most frenetic situations. Havin...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Any issues or downsides with this monitor compared to VG259QM? Your typical TN panel downsides: mediocre colour performance (without manual calibration), terrible viewing angles, especially vertical (top screen gamma shift), horizontal are acceptable. Other than that it's a solid monitor. I will be...

Re: My LG 27GL850 suffers from excessive backlight bleed, should I ask for a replacement or get a refund?

I was aware of the low contrast ratio when I bought the monitor. Personally, it doesn't bother me, what I didn't expect was the terrible black uniformity and backlight bleed. As I said, I lowered the brightness of the monitor and I use it with ambient light in my room, but it's still very noticeabl...

Re: 360hz users: 400 fps uncapped or 350 fps g sync?

I would like to ask a stupid question, but maybe I still don't understand how vsync on works. If you use gsync on with fps 236 blocked. Why need vsync "on" since the framerates do not exceed 240 fps?
