I tried different browsers and same result.
I don't have this problem with YouTube. I'm guessing there is some kind of copy protection for the Amazon videos that doesn't play nice with the 144Hz. How does Netflix do? Is that still Silverlight on PC?
I don't have a Netflix to try it out on, but that sounds like my problem exactly. I've tried different browser to no avail as well, and no other video player that I've tried replicates the problem. I contacted Asus via email and they said I need to call them, but it may need to be sent back for repair.
IDK if it's even worth getting fixed at the moment, considering the time lost and overall hassle. We'll see what the phone rep tells me. Maybe NewEgg will offer something a but more hassle free, like a new expedited monitor.
