I've been checking out reviews of the Samsung S27B970D, what a beauty that is.....although expensive in the extreme.

You're right, I forgot about it. I guess I was talking mainly based on price point, but I was also assuming a couple of things (i.e., that you can sell the headset to bring the price of the Asus down to ~$600, and that Dell would somehow offer the U2713HM for ~$559 like they have in Australia).

I've been using the Asus with the brightness between 50-80%, and I'm now using it at 30% to see if there's any flicker. 30% is pretty dim for me, however, and I don't think I'd ever use it with this low of a setting normally. I'm doing it to see if I detect any flicker, and I'll report back.

You probably wont see the flicker. almost no one can see it. But you can have eye-head strain if you are PWM sensitive...

I bought one of these babies last week and have been playing Battlefield 3 the past weekend.
For me there is no noticeable input lag what so ever.
The screen looks amazing and has very good image quality.

I bought an ATI 7950 to be able to play my games at native resolution and overclocked it to 1025 core and 1575 memory (no volt mods yet).
BF3 at Ultra plays at an avg of 45-50 fps and looks awesome on a screen like this.

There are two things I personally thought could have been done a little neater on the build of the monitor.
When I look at the bezel I can see that the bezel is tightly fastened in the corners but in the middle of the screens bezel - both top bottom and sides - you can see it be looser.

The second thing is that the real image of the screen doesn't touch the bezel, but has a slight black edge from the panel visible before you come to the bezel.
I don't mind this, but it is not really centered properly as the left side has a thicker line then the right side.
Now I can be a bit of a neurotic idiot when it comes to things like this, but was wondering if others have this as well.

I also am not able to see any flickering from the PWM and run it at 27 brightness.

As a gamer this is to my opinion the best of the screens currently available for a good price. thumb.gif

Hi,

For those of you have experienced both S27A850D and Asus.

I am really undecided, of which monitor to buy between the S27A850D and PB27Q. I need a push to finally go to either one.

Money apart, do you think that any of those monitors nearly identical? I would tend to go to Asus but PWM is holding me back. I tend to be sensitive to eye strain due to brightness and use to notice flickers on lamps and old monitors.

Besides PWM and cost are those monitors almost similar?

Now i am more forward to Samsung, but people seem to prefer Asus over Samsung. At least people are more entusiastic on this forum then on Samsung.

Not quite true, it does have some PWM. Read here: http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/review/2012/review-samsung-s27a850d-led-part7.html#Backlight

I don't like PWM as well. The Dell U2713HM has no PWM but I want to try the PLS based monitors. So far I cannot find PLS based ones that have no PWM at all.

well, Samsung amplitude is much less. Only 30% from 0.6 to 0.4. Asus go from all way down till 0.

Still for that money I would expect no PWM at all.
