Yeah, but with Samsung it could go either way. When they do it right, they're the best in the biz. But when they phone it in, they can also put out some real garbage. The question is whether they think there's any need to compete with what else is out there, or if they think a 4K at $699 sells itself. I'm guessing it's the latter....and I think they're probably right. In the big picture, g-sync is still largely unknown and not even a "fad" yet.

Asus has a 4k display in the works also that does 60Hz for the same price as the swift

Nothing worse to my eye than washed out, muted colors (which most gaming monitors I've used have when pulled right out of the box):

Myself? I'll take the calibrated route as the colors and shadows are just so much better...

I'd say for FPS 1st calibration might be even better as you see the chars in darker parts of the maps easier.

I'm thinking Asus will have to drop the price to match the Samsung 4K if they want to compete. My priority is 3D, which of course makes the Asus panel my choice, but at $100 less even I would have to carefully consider if it's worth giving up 3D to get a 4K panel for less money.

You would not only give up 3D, you would also lose:
- fluidity
- responsiveness
- motion resolution
- the ability to drive your games at acceptable frame rates
- stuttering mitigation through dynamic variable refresh rate
- low persistence capability

I'm in the same boat. I have the funds now as well as all my components for my build and I'm just waiting on a monitor. If this isn't available in a month's time then I'll have to get something else.

I really hope ASUS announces a release date for this monitor yet or at least some info. I've had my tax return for a while now and I planned on purchasing this but I may just pull the trigger on something else. I don't feel like waiting till June/July for a monitor.[/quote]

Have you done it? My results were easily worth the $75 I paid for the device and software.

Vega's comment was a bit weird for me to read, as he is the de-facto display guru around here, long with the folks from Blur Busters.

I personally found it to be a night and day difference.

Same. I mean as far as the desktop/windows applications goes calibrating my 2420T with a Spyder3 brought it extremely close to my calibrated U2410. Obviously some colors were a little crappy but it was significantly closer than it was out of the box. I mean yeah I guess I could have brought it closer just by using my eyes and tweaking it but the Spyder3 got it way closer than I would have way quicker.

The only downside is the profile is tossed when running a full screen game.

I always calibrate my monitors (ye, old fashioned way) without a Spyder and it always a nice improvement. wink.gif

Not exactly true. Most modern games actually use the .ICC profile you make.

Also why not just use Color Profile Keeper to FORCE the profile in fullscreen gaming? I do and it works great.
