I agree completely. This is what drove me from surround. You can't rely on what you are seeing in the side monitors which makes them next to worthless imo. If it's ever changed/fixed I will be right back on board.
Sorry guys haven't been on OCN for awhile. This was traded to another member but somehow it died in the process. I now have a new one fresh from RMA and I am still deciding what I want to do with it. Still the fastest single slot card on the market even after 780ti so I might just keep it. I will update when I've reached a decision.
