It may happen once a 2-3 days, may once a 2 weeks. The more you open OSD, the more often these black screens may occur. Easy fix: power cycle the monitor (via joystick button). After the powercycle, the new 2days-2weeks cycle begun. Only happens with high VT like 1300+.
This depends on the monitor, I've had mine go off every 20-30 seconds, so I just lowered horizontal totals by a little bit more.

Maybe a dumb question but... Should I care about frame skipping if I only play using freesync? Also I never could make 1304 to work, are you guys using AMD or NVIDIA for OC ?

When it starts to lose sync yes, it is going off every 20-30seconds until you powercycle it. After this it works fine for some days or even weeks, depending on how often you open OSD.

Well seems like LG is not really working on the problem, we posted in their forum.
It's almost 2 months ago now.

I could be wrong but we dont get any information whatsoever.
Even the first reply, we only got it, cause someone was actually asking.

I wish they would provide us atleast some Information, what is actually going on.

this appears when I activate the response time, should I take it as a guarantee? https://youtu.be/cFQrsPsFD40
PD: sorry for my bad English..

That's not normal. Probably yes, you should RMA it.

I noticed that sometimes. Turning it off and back on fixes it.

I've read through all this topic and it's still very hard to decide if it's a good monitor or not. I have XL2411z now and ordered this LG today. It will be interesting to compare both in non MBR mode, as I usually not use it. If Solid Lad wouldn't hate it so much, my mind would have been easier.

haha, sorry for the inconvenience :D

I was upgrading from an XL2411Z as well.
Motion will be smoother, that's for sure, and since you haven't tried other (better) 240hz displays like the xl2740, xl2540 or aw2518hf you might even be fully satisfied with the LG.
But going back and forth between my old 2411 and the LG, I noticed that I was doing better even with the old Benq, because of the lower input lag.
