How would you describe g-sync? I have had several 120hz monitors and I am very sensitive to any input lag/delays etc, so g-sync sounds perfect for me if it actually does work as advertised.
How is it to use in badly coded games (say assassins creed etc)?
Is it worth stepping up from a 120hz Korean monitor?
Also read on the first pages of this thread that there is some SLI issues, are they fixed?

yeah to youtube you can learn all about gsync and how badass is it and what it exactly does. it isn't a gimmick

It's really crazy NOT want to have g-sync so im guessing he have never seen it or even worse, use a crappy AMD gpu ..LOL!

And for anyone that have seen and used g-sync and not care about it must be ready for a mental hospital thumb.gif

G-Sync means little if you play everything in windowed mode.

1440 144hz though, that's a different story. Axe G-Sync and save $200.

For anyone else experiencing flickering when first using the monitor, I found this on page 6 of the manual:
Quote:
The screen may flicker during the initial use due to the nature of the fluorescentlight. Turn off the Power Switch and turn it on again to make sure that the flicker disappears

Cycling through the Hz settings fixed this for me.

Fluorescent light?

I thought the back-light was LED, not CCFL?

it's led

Well mine arrived from Amazon Warehouse, it's definitely been used before, I will test when I take my lunch break, hopefully it was only returned due to buyers remorse redface.gif

Edit: Well I dunno, the box was definitely dinged up a bit, and the styrofoam inside the box was slightly broke on one side, but the monitor still has the plastic all around it and I don't see any marks, what all came in everyones boxes, was the display port and power cord just in a box? Was there any papers inside? Mine just has the display port and the power cable in seperate bags, nothing else in the box besides the monitor itself

Mine came with DP cable in a bag, power brick in a bag, power cable in a bag, CD, warranty, and manual. But no ROG related poster which would have been nice at this price point.

So my Newegg 3-day shipping order is supposedly being shipped using a delivery service named Ontrac... I have never heard of them and so I decided to do a quick google search and whoa there are a lot of bad reviews and warnings about this company (often shipping for Newegg and Amazon Prime orders). Best part is the following is an exact quote under their terms and conditions:

"Our guarantee does not apply to shipments delayed by conditions beyond our control including but not limited to: acts of God, perils of the air, land, and sea; airline delays; weather conditions; acts of public enemies or terrorists; war; strikes; civil commotion; or acts or omissions of public authorities including Department of Agriculture, TSA, DOT, PES, and customs and health officials with actual or apparent authority. "

Could someone please enlighten me what shipping error exactly constitutes as an act of God?...

I am not impressed so far. We shall see what comes of this.
