Samsung 4K 1ms monitor $754 it has begun - Page 132

post #1311 of 1323
After tons of research I just ordered one of these over my second choice, the Asus PB287Q. Was a hard decision mainly because of the lack of VESA mounts and barebones stand, but it was ~$100 less so I can live with that. If it was only another $25 or so I would have gotten the Asus, but I figure with the $100 saved I'm sure I can epoxy on a VESA mount to the back with standoffs or something lol laughingsmiley.gif.

Should be here Friday. I currently have 2x OC'd 7970's but am getting 2x 290x's so it will be a fun comparison to see the difference from these aging cards at 4k to the 290s.

For me, I believe, the ideal 4K resolution would be around 32..36'' but I could ofc live also with 24 or 28'' model, Just would have to bring it a bit closer to my eyes somehow than I would with the larger screen.

About using screen very close to your eyes. It is more straining than using one at your arms length. So you get tired a bit faster. But it's not too bad - just have to keep a bit more rigid discipline about taking the breaks.

Oops didn't see that for ages

I'm short sighted, so 2 feet isn't a strain. If it's at 3-4 i'd need to use my glasses for forum posting as well as many games, otherwise that would create a lot of strain from trying to focus outside of my range. My sight is still pretty good at that distance, but the font size 10 is a bit of a killer after 10 minutes

I have found that using a automatic monitor temperature curve with the free utility f.lux helps eye strain a lot when web browsing or typing thumb.gif.

Basically it dynamically adjusts the monitor settings gradually right at sunrise and sunset using the location you set. This allows a nice bright picture during the day, but at sunrise over the course of an hour it gradually lowers the temp and removes the harsh blues without you even noticing since the sky outside is getting dark at a similar rate as your monitor. You can set it so that once you run any fullscreen game or program it automatically disables so it doesn't mess up your color accuracy, which I think is the default behavior.

I thought it was super gimmicky at first, but I was starting to suffer from eye strain at night so being a small simple program I gave it a try and I love it. I sit fairly close to a 27" 1440p IPS and I did not notice just how bright it is at night until I got f.lux.

F.lux, interesting. Maybe I should test this out.

Using it now on the 28" 4K in OP and love it even more thumb.gif. I don't even realize its working since its so gradual, but if I disable it after sunset the difference is staggering and makes you squint.

Apparently its the blue spectrum that causes the most eye strain, so since f.lux gradually changes the warmth from a harsh blue-white to a warm white to mimic sunrise/sunset it makes a huge difference for me.

I've tried it and it works!

It really helped with my eye strain... definitely adjusts the brightness to a practical standard.

Thanks!

Sold mie bezel was to thick and all i did was play Starcraft 2.

Anyone know how this monitor scales at lower resolutions? Like 2560x1440?

Are the rumors of it being overclockable at these settings true?
post #1319 of 1323
Only $499 @ Costco.
post #1320 of 1323
What's the deal with these now? I've read some folks saying the refresh rates aren't overclockable beyond 1920x1080 and that kinda sucks if that's true.

I'm headed to Costco tomorrow and was going to see if they had these in stock considering picking one up.
