I found this on a korean YT channel today, its a blur test of the XL2746S and they also have one of the XL2546:

The motion for the XL2746S looks great based on that test, I'm actually hyped to get one of these.

Here's a translated review that went up today of the XL2746: https://translate.google.com/translate? ... w/57666851#

Pertinent points:

1. Input lag: 2-3 ms at 240 Hz
2. Peak luminance: ~360 nits
3. Contrast ratio: ~1100-1270ish
4. Color: ~72% NTSC
5. Response time GtG: 1.6-1.8 ms (http://down.playwares.com/xe/files/atta ... 533de6.png)
6. Dyac+ in motion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8YxU25 ... =emb_title

Viewing angles are your typical TN panel. I wish it was 400 nits uniform personally and unfortunately they don't mention how much the panel darkens with Dyac+, just that it does. I'm going to hold off for reviews from Prad, TFTCentral or RT before I buy this thing and see how it compares to other panels.

I'm also interested on this model, but i prefer wait to see deep review with professional equipment, and compare it Vs XL2740.

XL2746S will be more expensive, and i want confirm if are improved GtG or others features Vs 2740.

My main interest in this model is know the 2746 frequency's range allowed to single-strobe, and if there are any range where is 100% crosstalk-free.

I prefer if support single-strobe range 50-240Hz to allow also Europe 50p video streams, but if is 60-240, is enought.
I'd like to know this too.
60 hz single strobe (but you guys know how much important that is to me already).

Available for sale now on their website, the price is a steep $650 for a 1080p monitor. I'm going to wait on Amazon to have it in stock before I buy though.

The XL2546 is on sale at Amazon as of yesterday, down to $469.99 from $499.99. Perhaps they are trying to clear inventory in preparation for the launch of the XL2546S.

Does anyone know what improvements DyAc+ offer over DyAc yet? I'm thinking it could be the tuning of the strobe timing and/or improvements to the voltage boosted backlight, or better coordination between the panel overdrive and the strobe timing to reduce crosstalk.
