I see the same exact color on my monitor.

damn, wish i knew what was causing this. I don't see this on the glossy version of this monitor, nor neither of my dell anti-glares at work.

I for one can't look at PWM dimmed monitors for more than 20 mins. The lower the brightness the worse the PWM dimming eye strain becomes.

Nobody seem to want to help each other out here.

Please complain to your parents that your eyes suck and not us. We are aware of what PWM lighting is and we haven't had any complains regarding it and there has to be at least 100 Auria users on this forum.

not quoting to save space but just because people are not aware of PWM dimming does not mean it is not effecting them, and no one still have done the pencil wave test to look for strobing....

I tried the pencil wave test and i didn't see anything. Can you make a demo video on how to exactly accomplish this?

The reason i haven't done it is because you have been downright disrespectful of everyone on these forums in just about every post you've made.

You set the brightness to 30% or lower, bring up a white screen (google), hold the pencil in the middle with your fingers, and wiggle it fast, if you see white and dark lines where the pencil is moving then it has PWM dimming, 100% you should see a smooth line-free blur where the pencil is moving.

If both the 30% and 100% brightness look the same where the pencil is moving then there is no PWM dimming used.

100% accurate way to test for PWM dimming.

I just did this. Nada. I don't see anything.

Hm maybe the pink/green tints on the pixel test have something to do with color settings because I didn't have it before but now I do. No where near as pronounced as yours but it is apparent on the pixel test. Also I find it hard to believe that waving a pixel in between your eyes and your monitor is the 100% accurate scientific test to determine pwm dimming.

and you would be 100% wrong. If you knew how PWM dimming worked you would not say that. The pencil wave test is 100% accurate and its very easy to do.

I have the Asus VG278HE 144hz monitor and am returning it due to PWM dimming and the poor image quality and viewing angles, the 3D and 144hz are nice but no way is it worth it over a 1440p IPS.

I forgot to mention, you have to have the pencil close to the monitor, not your eyes.

I tried doing it as close as possible (but I won't try to touch the monitor with the pencil for obvious reasons). I didn't see any changing or dimming or discoloration. I remember those CRT days - whenever you try waving a magnetic screwdriver near the monitor - you see rainbow orbs. smile.gif
