Playing some "Outlast" game in the dark. The Eizo's blacks and contrast make dark games amazing. Like when night vision is on, I can barely even tell where the screen borders are in the dark.

Monitor is here with zero issues, with some fast settings looks perfect
post #785 of 889
The monitor just arrived...

Firstly, I have a sign on my front door that clearly says "please do not leave parcels outside, I will gladly come pick it up at the outlet/warehouse". This is because I leave in a bad neighborhood where people would steal it, and I'm in Ontario where it is FREEZING right now. What does UPS do? They left this f*cking epensive monitor outside in the freezing cold. That is going to be a nasty call when I get in touch with them.

I hooked up the monitor the next day, and I even took BluBusters advice of letting it run for more than 30 minutes to get the best blur reduction performance. Firstly, I have a dead pixel in the bottom right and I'm pretty heart broken about this. I can't find Eizo's exactly policy on this? I won't settle for a monitor this expensive with any dead pixels...

Also, I'm using my dual link dvi cable from my 2233rz to connect this to my GeForce card. Got it set to work at 120hz in the nvidia options. I got it set to 120hz refresh rate in quakelive. I put it to user mode FPS1 (which it says turns on Turbo240 mode automatically) and it is no smoother than the 2233rz????

Do I have to turn on Turbo240 mode using other menu options? I've been googling to see if the dual link dvi cable work for this mode and apparently it does???? It's actually terrible right now with no difference in fluidity/motrion blur reduction when I compare it to my 2233rz. What gives??

Did you buy it from Amazon? If so, return it and buy another one. Amazon couldn't care less when it comes to monitor returns or policies; if you're unhappy with the product, they'll give you a refund.

I couldn't get it from Amazon since it wasn't available for Canada.

Firstly I don't want to sway anyone's opinion on my very limited time I've had to experience with this monitor. But I will give my initial impressions because I know a lot of people want user feedback.

The manufacturing date on mine is November, 16th, 2013, so I was happy knowing I got a later production.

I haven't went to TFTCENTRAL yet to get better picture/color settings or anything for that matter so I'll hold those opinions for a more suitable time. In terms of the other problems people have been getting, I haven't had a chance to fully investigate, but the common light bleed, especially on the right hand side, doens't seem apparent at all on black screens. When I play quakelive I notice it a little on each side but it isn't anything distracting at all and you have to look for it.

Here is a pic of a black background so you guys can look at the right hand side. Ignore the fuzzy phone camera quality and messy icons.

What I defintiely have had time experienting with is Turbo240 after letting the monitor have sufficient warm up time to give it an honest try.

After a month of not gaming on anything at all, I was able to go into a game with a pretty open mind using this monitor. At first. I didn't even think Turbo240 mode was on because I wasn't overly impressed. It definitely was though since I specifically checked and have been using FPS1 mode. I made sure everything was set to 120hz and that I was also maxing out at 120hz in game. I went to BlurBusters ufo test site and I could definitely tell there that blur reduction was better with Turbo240 mode on. So what I did was go back to the 2233rz for a bit to play and see how much of a difference it is. I was definitely killing it with the 2233rz, probably because that's what I've been used to. I immediately went back again to the Eizo and I could definitely tell it's smoother on fast turns, etc, but I'm not "wowed" by the blur reduction. Probably because I had to pay such a premium price for this. But keep in mind this is my first blur reduction monitor and I know everyone has different sensitivities.

Another user said he experienced better blur reduction when he switched over to display port rather than using a dvi cable. Problem is I have a Geforce 8800 GTX that doesn't have a display port connection, so I can't try use the display port to see if it is any better.

I should get my viewsonic CRT from downstairs and plug that in to see how comparible it is in blur reduction to the Eizo. I can't really speak on the input lag yet. I was going to initially get the VG248QE, and I really want to now to compare input lag feel. I'm pretty sensitive to input lag like the above poster who returned his Eizo to newegg stating it had a palpable input lag feel compared to his Asus - so it would be interesting to compare both of them. I'm not not sure how much the terrible TN panel washed out colors would bother me. Definitely quality picture/color on the Eizo and I haven't even done any fiddling to improve it yet.

I have a friend who is supposed to send me his Geforce 560ti, and I'd be able to try out the display port instead to see if blur reduction feels any "better" like blueshun experienced...

What game(s) are you running to test? 8800GTX from 2006 isn't going to do the monitor justice and keep 120+ FPS in games. A lot of people that aren't "wowed" by the strobing backlight are running FPS way too low. FPS really need to be 120+ at all times. Maybe you could try an older game like CS 1.6 and see how that works.

Vega, right now I'm just running QuakeLive to test, which is pretty much older than CS 1.6 since it is basically Quake 3 repackaged. So it's pretty rock solid at 120 fps, which I have displayed in game while playing. There are a few maps where it dips, so I try to judge based on rock solid steady performing maps. Also it pretty much the only PC game I've been playing steadily over the last few years so it seemed fit to use to judge based of my previous 2233rz experience..

Try this with and without Turbo240 (make sure its running 120 Hz):

Check the clarity of the Eiffel Tower between the two modes. Also try it on your other monitor. Let us know how it goes.
