If you don't mind me asking, do you use strobing on your xl2730z? do you play fast FPS? don't you really miss the SONY on games (maybe not on text)?
Wish we would live close (don't think you live on Spain, right? xD) so i could go to "help you" to get rid of that "useless" CRT of yours
. Now seriously, i think you have to keep that monitor as i think it can rise its price (more with the recent articles), so when you sell it you can pay a whole new PC
(although i would keep the Sony and the 980 and have a secondary PC, just in case
xl2730z tried the strobe, but did not use it constantly. a lot of crosstalk, the scaler did not support VT tweak. only in battlefield. I am indifferent to Sony. Yes, Russia and Spain are not nearby).
I have no hope that it will rise in price, especially in my country. Yes, he still has advantages regarding LCD matrices, but every year they are less and less.
if we talk about games.
You get good colors, but are these colors needed for fps games?
you get instant response but are limited to low hz.
Yes, you get a very soft strobe without any artifacts.
but it still flickers. and I don’t understand why in games they warn about possible attacks of epilepsy, and the sticker with the same warning is not glued to the monitors.
for solo games there has long been an oled tv.
For FPS games there are 240zh monitors. and as soon as we get interpolation with minimal delays and artifacts from 1000fps, including for retro console players. my fw900 will definitely go to the trash.
Also, if you like to tinker with the settings and calibration of the fw900, this is a good choice, it will take away all your free time, becoming more and more perfect. Like those people who like to sit in the garage and repair and clean the engine of their beloved old car. This is a kind of buzz.
As an all-in-one device, I prefer the 1440p 165 g-sync. But this is the one person’s gaze.
