TFT Central ONLY looks at the car in PixerPixAn, making conclusions after only viewing the race car=useless.
Ultrafast overshoots less than Trace Free 60, but why deal with overshoot when Advanced is overshoot free? Trace Free 0 and 20 on the PB278Q are overshoot free but suffer from considerably more streaking/smearing.
The green line (overshoot) goes above the 2nd highest black line
The green line (overshoot) does not go above the 2nd highest black line
Sorry, I did not see that you replied to me before. After playing with 3 difference monitors with (HP LP2475w, Samsung S24A850D, Asus PB278Q) it has come to my attention that I am ok with SLIGHT overshoot if it means much less smearing/motion blur, which TF60 meets perfectly. I cannot see the overshoot on the Asus unless I active produce it and look for the result. The only title I passively notice overshoot on is Starcraft II with the contrast between the bright tilesets and the black outlines of the unit's health bars, and I play at a fairly high level, so I am not focusing on health bars when I'm playing.
Unfortunately, although I am pretty much in love with the Asus PB278Q, the PWM gives me awful headaches unless I turn the brightness to 100%, which also gives me headaches because It's like looking into a star. It breaks my heart that Asus ruined what could have been the best monitor on the market with something so dumb as to use a backlight dimming method that is ergonomically unsound. My problem with the S24A850D was that "faster" was not fast enough and "very fast" was too aggressive and overshot badly, so I'm really hope "ultra fast" on the Viewsonic, mixed with it's faster input lag hits a sweet spot for me...
Also, this thread at HardForums: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1713774&page=15 , claims the S27A850D uses PWM as well. Anyone know if this is true...? If so, if the 2770 doesn't work out, I will have to abandon PLS all together.
