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? Click here to open Blur Busters G-SYNC 101 article FAQ (article created by jorimt ), the second ent...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Is this an upgrade to an Omen X 25f? I only play CSGO and I am happy with my Omen... Just wanted to see if this is worth the $$$. Oh, yes, in my opinion Zowie XL2546K is far superior over Omen X 25f, in all motion handling, ergonomics, strobing (which the Omen does not have at all), features (like ...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Would the K version be worth it over the regular XL2546? The regular one is $30 off on Amazon right now, so I'm wondering if the 1/2 ms decrease in response time (because DyAc seems to be pretty much the same) is worth $30. for $30 you are getting: - A much faster panel, the old one used on the XL2...

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

It's panel lottery: you might get a better unit, you might get even worse unit, so it's really up to you. The top right corner bleed is pretty extensive, indeed. Also, note that this monitor has a pretty bad contrast ratio as for an IPS panel, way below 1000:1 advertised value. RTINGS tested the con...

Re: Omen X 25f issue - Vertical black lines.

That's your typical high refresh rate TN panel experience, with terrible pixel inversion artifacts, because that's how we call what you see. From my experiences, this phenomenon is fairly common in high refresh rate TN panels. I have previously seen a complaint about Omen X 25f inversion artifacts i...
