Are you on the latest version of Nvidia drivers? I'm interested in 3d too.
Yes, i'm using 441.87 with injected 3DVision from 425.31 drivers

After searching all day long, i found a way: creating my own EDID Override based on my AW2518H which is also a 240hz Gsync 1920x1080 monitor.
And it worked!

So here it is:

Download it and set it as your new monitor's driver
It should work with all 240hz Gsync 1920x1080 monitor

I think NVIDIA removed 3DVision from the latest drivers.

One question people. When we put this screen in 144hz mode for the ULMB, The extra input lag comes from putting the screen into 144hz mode itself or its the Black image insertion?

Probably a bit of both.

I bought this for £379, a great buy IMO considering it is full G-Sync module and it's using the new TN panel.

I have come from a Dell U2410 IPS panel and bought this for gaming. Of course, it exhibits the usual TN issues, but they seem to be far less pronounced, it's the best TN panel I've ever seen. Amazingly, my unit has no BLB.

Viewing angles are surprisingly good, viewing from angles turns white to yellow, but the image is still visible.

The panel is slightly darker at the top than the bottom, but this is expected with TN.

I was waiting for the 25" IPS Predator to release, but it is taking so long and the price on this TN has dropped so much (originally £499) I couldn't resist.

I'm interested in the settings you guys use. Here are mine:

Brightness 15
Contrast 40
Blue Light Off
Dark Boost Off
Adaptive Contrast Off
Gamma 2.2
Color Temp. User

This looks best for me, the whites aren't so blinding, yet they are still white.

I tried some settings from other sites and they all seemed too bright.
