ViewSonic VP2770 Review+Club: 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy PLS - Page 15

post #141 of 514
Can you confirm the low lag using side-by-side comparison e.g. compared to your S27A850D or are you completely relying on the Prad measurements?
Indeed I kinda wonder if their measurements are really so much more reliable than everyone else's, especially as different persons write the reviews (and do the measurements?) and come to quite different conclusions. Indeed, regarding the Viewsonic, Prad is really the only site that praised its low input lag (and still didn't give it a good mark for that).
Even if the camera/CRT-approach used by other sites is pretty inaccurate, it would have been probable to get at least one other measurement indicating that the Viewsonic's input lag is much better than that of e.g. a S27B970D or U2713HM.

Besides: in Prad's article regarding input lag measurement they're using a pretty highend oscilloscope which they only borrowed for the test. It's not really clear to me how they perform the test after they returned the scope, active probe etc. An affordable scope (i.e. in the <10k€ range) is clearly not able to trigger on specific bit patterns in an HDMI stream (even though of course this should be possible with a relatively cheap FPGA card as well). Anyway, it's unclear to me how they really perform the input lag test now.

I bought this monitor on Monday after returning the ASUS because it had a stuck pixel and dust behind the screen (no bleeding though). I got the monitor for $661 which was a deal.

My only issue is that I have what I think is a lot of backlight bleeding on the right side of the monitor. It's only noticeable against dark images and backgrounds however...

I'm beginning to think that every single PLS 2560x1440 monitor has flaws and it's actually rather frustrating. I know Amazon has a good return policy but I think it would almost be better to go to a store and have them test the unit for you before you buy it. Now I have to decide whether or not I should go through the process of sending my second monitor in one week back and going through the entire process again... Or maybe I can just avoid all black in video games and movies!!!! wink.gif Seriously though, ***.

I would send it back. That's horrendous!

I honestly don't understand why it's so hard to get a monitor right... I saw a thread where a guy took his LCD apart because of backlight bleeding and fixed it with black electrical tape. It worked. So why can't HP, Dell, ASUS, LG, Samsung, ViewSonic, etc do that kind of stuff? I mean really, is this asking too much? Smh. Kind of over buying monitors, nothing but hassles.

I'm pretty sure I can remember reading about prad's method being flawed somewhere too, I don't know who to believe.
