Yep. It's a tradeoff.

I use LightBoost 50% personally.

Hello,

I've added a link to surround LightBoost instructions as a link within my LightBoost HOWTO.
It links to this HardForum post:
http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1039773391&postcount=1212

This is a must-read for 3-monitor surround LightBoost users.

I've got two samsung s23a950d monitors and enjoyed them a lot. However, I have recently rearranged the room and now these glossy screens are giving me unbearable glare to the point that I want to get rid of them. I'm extremely interested in these Asus monitors, but I have a few questions.

1) How is the anti-glare matte screen?
2) I would buy three of these because I plan on doing surround/eyefinity in the future. Are the viewing angles good enough for that?

I'm not too worried about the colors out of the box because I have a spyder4elite and would calibrate them out of the box. I don't do any photo editing or anything of that sort... just gaming and basic web browsing/e-mail stuff.

Thanks
R-WAN

The anti glare is pretty much spot on. I never see any form of glare whatsoever. Playing with the room flooded with sunlight still offers a crisp experience. And the viewing angles should be fine for a 3 screen setup. Just make sure you have the desk space, I know I don't.

GUYS OMG! So I had this monitor for more than two months now. A couple of weeks ago I notice that I now have a blue dead pixel or maybe a stuck pixel on my screen. That couple weeks ago, I thought the blue pixel was only showing on black background or any dark images but it shows up on blue background also, except now it's a black pixel on blue images. I love this monitor, how do I fix this!?

will it make it worse? O.O

I tried using UDPixel a couple weeks ago. Tried it for a couple of hours, but at that time I didn't see a dead/stuck pixel on a Blue background (or I may have not noticed it).

The only time I really notice it is when I try to find it LOL but it really bugs me! mad.gif
