After tons of research, I finally picked last 2 monitors.
Which one is better for gaming, movies etc? No graphics at atll, but I guess it doesn't even matter.

I would like the Asus more which has PWm but I guess that won't even affect me. Any thoughts?

Hey buddy

 

Check the latest few posts in this thread

You might have some answers.

User BillOhio says this

 

I've had the Asus about a week now and am completely satisfied. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the Samsung just as much but the Samsung was ~$200 more expensive after taxes here in Toronto. I read a thread similar to this on another forum before deciding on the Asus vs. the Samsung, and in that thread it seemed to come down to the PWM rate. Some people will be fatigued by the lower PWM rate of the Asus when it's at lower brightness levels. Those people might be better served to go with the more expensive Samsung. For everyone else (like me), the Asus is an especially nice monitor.

 

 

Again check in the 1440p club too. Some people talked about both monitors as far as I recall.

 

You cant really go wrong with any of them though. But are amazing monitors.

Oh yeah yeah I remember you. From Czech Republic

 

Actually I was going to ask you how much do those monitors cost there in Euros?

 

Wondered if they were as expensive as here in Turkey. :)

 

Asus is nice. If you like it go for it for sure thumb.gif

Yeah, I really like mine. Another guy liked his a lot less though:

Not only that but the flicker was very visible for me. Not to mention the backlight bleed in three corners, the IPS glow, the strong gradient banding, and the off angle brightness shift that was visible even when looking dead center perpendicular. Oh, and the 3 dead pixels.
I do believe 5 years of S-PVA has spoiled my expectations. Black blacks, high contrast ratio, no backlight bleed or glow, smooth gradients. There is a gamma shift at off angles but to me it is much less noticeable than the brightness dip on IPS/PLS.
Too bad there are no 2560x1440 or 1600 PVA/MVA panels. I guess I'm stuck with what I've got until OLED becomes a reality. rolleyessmileyanim.gif
Also, this is in no way an indictment of the monitor or the panel. I'm sure anyone switching from a TN or IPS to this will have no problems. I must say the light antiglare coating was exceedingly nice. Too bad for me about the rest of it. And anyone who is extremely used to PVA or MVA should venture into buying an IPS or PLS with the knowledge that it's a big shift.

Like I say, I'm very happy with mine but it was issue free (at least to my eye). I bought it at a brick and mortar store where I could return it just in case. I can't imagine ordering a $700-$800 monitor on line.

I do notice that the Dell is reported to have it's own fair share of issues also.

While my post sounds a bit harsh a lot of that is just my annoyance at my brain being sensitive to the flicker and not wanting me to have nice things. tongue.gif

If that had not been an issue, I probably would have played the replacement game until I got one with no bleed or dead pixels. I'll probably end up doing just this with the Samsung 850D as it should hopefully not have the same effect on me since it cycles between 40% and 60% rather than full on and off.

I'm really happy with my Asus, but if they cost the same I have a hunch I might prefer the Samsung.

My Dell has been a very good panel... built well, rigid and reliable.
Although I didn't have much choice 4 years ago.

As much as Iike Asus, when it comes to monitors/panels I would go with Samsung and Dell before I bought Asus.
And 1440p/1600p gaming is grrrrreeeaaat.

If you decide to get the Dell and have a Costco membership, they have a pretty good deal running right now ($649).
