post #721 of 8206
looks like my tax return will be going towards one of these monitors and another 770. I Think that's the best upgrade path for me at this point.

I had a Catleap, it wasn't even an overclockable one and it looked fine. Except the part where it caught fire, that wasn't good. Only monitor that had truly bad motion blur that I have had is my current U3014. On game mode the overdrive is out of this world, it flickers and stutters and has pixel transitions that make glaciers look fast.

This monitor can't come fast enough. I currently run a 1440p60hz and while it's ok enough for stuff like assassin's Creed I've found myself wanting my old benq 120hz back while playing farcry3. Not to mention g-sync is going to completely alleviate the most annoying problem I have when gaming, which is having to tweak settings so often to maintain 60fps. Usually I just tired and drop settings to make sure I don't have to fiddle W it has it anymore.

People talking about TN panel color shift here like it is the end of the world, or if your head isn't perfectly still it happens, are over exaggerating I feel. The last TN I had was a Samsung, and while it had color shift, it wasn't nearly as bad as people are making out color shift to be. If I went enough off axis, you could see it, but come on! Something else to consider, is the anti-glare coating on almost every TN panel, and how much that impacts the look.

I see two groups in here right now....

"Motion blur of IPS is too bad to handle! It will make your eyes bleed!"

and

"TN color shift is so bad, if you even twitch a neck muscle, the screen goes blank because it shifted so bad!"

The truth of the matter is that most of you are exaggerating both issues. What is not exaggerated is the market for this panel, it is massive! Like TN or not, like Asus or not, that doesn't change the fact that Asus is bringing to market something gamers have wanted for more than a few years now.

How large was the monitor? Was it 27-30"? Because the few TN screens I've owned or seen that have been made that large all suffered from color shift that is obvious and which cannot be dealt with when sitting at a normal distance (18"-2') away from the screen.

At 24" and below, I agree with you - the color shift is minimal and not really noticeable if you're not looking for it on a good TN panel.

It was 24", which was the largest display I owned until my 27" IPS.....

I wasn't aware that size impacted the issue so heavily, at least not to the "end of the world" degree so many people claim.
