My bad, forgot it was called 3:2 pulldown tongue.gif This is still unnatural though.

I'd still argue that removing the need for 3:2 pulldown would make it smoother.

Motion interpolation would work for, say, 3D animated content. I use SVP on stuff like this and it looks nice. Generally, I would recommend using SVP to make panning shots smoother (certain settings allow that) - I've tried some anime with the characters' moions interpolated and in certain situations it does look very weird - almost overly smooth, as my brain is so used to watching 24Hz content. Or it could just be the interpolation is not complex enough to produce realistic resuls.

Definitely, actually that's what I meant by duplication. No more jerkiness!

Need to try SVP, but I never was convinced with motion interpolation to give this a go.

Just curious, only because I'm venturing towards staying single monitor for the time being. Are there certain situations where the OS won't recognize my monitor? Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly but I thought I just plugged it in and it worked fine right out of the box. I didn't have another monitor in at the time and I don't think I patched the drivers until after I plugged it in. I could be wrong and maybe I did patch them before switching monitors, but I doubt it. I may hold off selling my second monitor, if that's the case.

Just got my X-Star in. I ordered the glossy but they didn't have any in stock. Also expected it way sooner but I can't complain too much. Pretty happy with it, although it does have a cheap feeling to it. Sure does look good though.

Is it really necessary to overclock a monitor? Noob question

Of course it is necessary, overclock your SSD too while your at it and your dog.

Heh, the reason users are overclocking these monitors is to get them over 60hz to something close to 120hz without having to pay for a 120hz monitor. I can't say from experience, but from what I hear 120hz is well worth it, especially for gaming. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Someday I'll update my old 22" Samsung non-led LCD. smile.gif

Um... you actually can't buy a 120Hz 1440p PLS/IPS monitor. Either buy these monitors or buy another and stick an Overlord PCB in - those are your only options for those specs.

So far this monitor is looking pretty nice. I got it OCed to 120Hz right now with no problems. I tried 130Hz, but it started to artifact.

Problem so far are 2 dead pixels and some black light bleeding (massage method didn't help), mainly in the bottom right. The bezel bulges out a bit on the bottom center and the panel sits 1/16" too low.

I have the brightness all the way up but it still seems kind of dark for my liking. The monitor darkens even more when OCing, especially at 120Hz. I used these ICC profiles for both 96Hz and 120Hz and they fix the darkening problem when OCing pretty well.

Now it's picture time. biggrin.gif

My Setup:


Dead Pixel + Backlight Bleed
