Can we make the concesus that most of these monitors have banding and such now and these arent worth the price anymore?

The earlier models were okay and some people are still getting them but these newer ones are just terrible and seem like B- quality if that.

I would have a very hard time pulling the trigger on one, that's for sure. But you always remember the bad it seems.

The SE versions are like b and b-, others are not(from what i've seen on here and hardforum)


Also, even if these monitors did not overclock. they are still worth the price.

I mean its not too bad, the yellow spot is just really weird to me, the image retention I can deal with otherwise the monitor is perfect.

Anyone have that before? Could it be a cable?


its like a yellow tint on the bottom middle.

Seen on light background only not dark so not light bleed.

We should just make a consensus not to buy from AccessoriesWhole, as they seem to have the vast majority of major defects as of the last 2 weeks/month or so.

oh... ok. so it's still a YMMV on the gamma color shifts even with custom CRU settings. that's a shame.

Are you running overclocked?

Also, would i notice the effect of getting a colorometer vs the ICC profiles here>?

yep but pretty sure its there when it isn't over clocked as well. It just appeared randomly kind of. Its a very slight tint kind of like sephia so I mean I can ignore it I was just confused. I've had defects like that on much more expensive monitors so I guess I'll deal lol

Depends how sensitive your eyes are to color and what you'll be doing with it

Why not 100Hz?
Anyone know?
