This is a similar Asus monitor and what PWM looks like to an oscilloscope:



Basically the LED backlight is strobed rather than kept at a constant lower voltage.

But again, most people aren't affected by it, so I wouldn't base a buying decision on it.

Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions.

Just comes down to how and where the screen will be placed, if you are going to have a light source in front of the screen most of the times, get something with antiglare, me I like having light sources behind my screen and nothing in the front and love that setup as I like a nice sharp image compared to the lil dullness of anti glare coating.

Also I'm not sure if you remember or not, I had some flickering issues on first IPS screen, but this second one that I got I have this connected using a display port and I have no issue at all whatsoever.

Also I posted my proof on the last page, and on the issue of the GPUs, my Titans will be here next week. (woo hoo).

That would affect the life out of me. Im one of those guys who gets major headaches if there like the tiniest smudge on my sunglasses. One of the main reasons my I returned the first screen that I got.

So is 10-bit really that bad? I'm drooling on the Yamakasi Sparta 300 1600p and it is indeed 10-bit.

8 bit is something you'd want to worry about, 10 bit will be just fine if you aren't doing professional graphic and color dependent work or aren't a hardcore display enthusiast.

Doubt it. If your gfx card can't output 10bit colour, the display isn't going to output 10bit colour. And 10bit is something usually reserved for professional cards and in the case of nvidia, is driver limited; not sure how AMD does things but it typically limited to the FirePro range.
In short, you'd most likely be displaying 8bit colour through that 10bit capable display.

That's totally backwards.

For sRGB content (99% of things) you want an 8-bit display. For Adobe RGB content (print media, etc) you want a 10-bit display and a 10-bit workflow from start to finish. When using a 10-bit display with 8-bit content, colors are completely wrong, over saturated and unnatural unless calibrated, and even then will not be as accurate to the content as an 8-bit display. Also, there are very few wide gamut calibrators available, and they run upwards of a couple hundred dollars. So it's best to leave 10-bit displays to the professional content creators and stick to 8-bit displays for gaming.

Newegg Paul did a review on it and i dont believe he mentioned about the 10-bit color. If he didn't notice it, yamakasi owners don't notice it, then how big of a deal it really is? Honestly, im coming from a 3 yo. 1080p benq which is pretty bad and i think anything else would be an improvement.

Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions.

I must say i had a crossover and now i have 2 dell u2713hm. Am a big fan of glossy screens but now since using the anti glare screen i kind of like the anti glare screens. But with a glossy screens there is more of a pop in colors where as its not the same with anti glare screens. It really depends what kind of screens you like. Best thing to do is go to a shop and see the anti glare screens and see if you like it if you don't then go with a glossy screen. The only reason i went with the dell is because of the grantee and the hdmi inputs. If i was to go with only one screen then i would definitely get a apple cinema display but they cost twice as much as the dell u2713hm
