I am pretty hyped to see some reviews. Hardware Unboxed missed a few things people will find pleasantly surprising (not of the technical variety) other reviewers may dig into. I have the ambient light sensor covered and hoping to get some ideas on if this is worth making a few changes to uncover. I didn't do a deep dive due to scheduling conflict and not wanting to break anything before a stream but you'd think with VRR disabled in Windows, in NVCP Gsync off, with a refresh rate set too 240hz around the board, I could check out ULMB. I won't use it but curious how it stacked up against the ELMB of my VG259QM (240 vs 240 and 240 vs 280). For the love of all, that did not allow me to enable it.
Kinda of an aside, I could not get decent picture showing the alien. I didn't want to take down my DSLR's to try and capture but the issue with the iPhone X Pro cam kept turning into one of focus. Evidently I am quicker at clicking heads than pics but I embarrassingly spent probably 20-30 minutes on this. Brand new monitor I had been waiting for. Fortunate timing allowed me to get it. I set it up... had to get everything organized and instead of taking it out for a spin I'm failing at taking dang pics
I did try Reflex last night and not sure what to say on this. At one time I was ranked 600 in the world in Kills in Warzone and still maintain top win and k/d percentages. I bring this up because I have a pretty good feel for the game when you hit a decent server or not. Due to Season 6 release is it's entirely possible the servers which are already the worst I've ever seen (12hz tick rates...) were the issue but Reflex and with boost on I could not determine an improvement. I would need to test a better game though. To me, it felt like Reflex had an almost in mud feeling. You don't notice with the mouse but in general things felt less responsive but not like you'd see or feel from looking around. To circle back, I can always tell a Server is shit when dropping and the Parachute is not responsive when navigating. This was extremely evident when playing a few games. Could have been servers, could have been the parachute mechanics being changed in Season 6, and may not have been Reflex at all. I plan on taking a look at COD outside of Warzone where the servers are a bit less punishing but still ultimate trash.
