That hardly changes the purpose of my post does it?

Just got my monitor and this is amazing, no pixel errors and no backlight bleeding (unless you look from the side. Ordered a pixel perfect one from green-sum and people say pixel perfect is a scam but this was worth it smile.gif It also managed to do 96hz out of the box in nvidia controllpanel and after 1 minute off usage 60hz became laggy smile.gif

Well...the premium served it's purpose for you I guess but it's still quite possible to get a defect-free one non-PP. "Scam" is a little strong of a term, granted.

Not the purpose of your post, but the repeated question from others who keep asking whether "burn-in" is permanent or not.

It's not burn-in, it's image retention. That's what it is.

lol, fair enough; but though I can respect your somewhat finicky regard for semantics I still fail to see how what you are saying really matters.
In the case of my post, I had initially suspected burn-in so that is the term that I used throughout.
So long as the lot of us know what we are getting at, does such conversation really necessitate an impeccable application of the already somewhat untoward English language?
post #7326 of 25893
Uh it "matters"-greatly-because "image retention" is not actual damage and thus not permanent. Burn-in is.

If you run a panel prone to image retention for a long time, the retention can essentially burn in. Google "permament image retention on LCD"

Mainly happens when voltage inversion is poor (Google "LCD inversion"), combined with forcing the temporary retention to occur in the same place for a very long time (e.g. days, weeks, months), the temporary retention can slowly become harder to fade away. A properly designed LCD, with good voltage inversion, doesn't have retention issues, though.

You can have stubborn IR, but it wont be permanent - most of the time people run slides/static for a few days at most to get rid of it. LCD is typically much harder to get even short duration IR

Plasma/LCD wont get burn-in unless its displaying the same static image FOR WEEKS without change...so basically impossible unless done on purpose.

Ok so ive tried 96hz and 120hz, and its AMAZING! 1440P NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD! I have 2 stuck pixels but thats nothing to cry about espcially since I have barely any blb. 120hz has some scan lines and it did get a little darker. Cant really tell a difference between 96hz&120hz so ill go back to 96hz, but first to see how far this beast can go. Me thinks I got lucky, (espcially with the blb) little uniformity issues but dont really notice it, using asus pb278q v3.icc profile.Using gtx 560.

my IR was pretty bad at anything above 96Hz. I think it has a lot to do with static images, which the majority of gamers probably do not experience (other than a HUD).

i eventually got smart and realized I didn't need an overclocked monitor for doing excel and email.biggrin.gif
