Idk just a theory. The problem is, with gamma lowered desktop looks fine, but games are reallllllyyyyy hard to pick up detail, defiantly darkens up alot of spaces where there shouldn't be dark patches and distorts the colours rather heavily. Im tempted to buy one of the ultra wide va high refresh screens but they are only 1080 height and im not sure how much that will bother me. Or Ill just keep the broken swift and hope that non - ips high res high refresh screens will come out. Who knows maybe Samsung will make a OLED gaming monitor. Ide mortgage my house for that. lol

What help me a lot was a change of color temperature from "User" to some other preset. I've used "WARM". This reduced pixel inversion pretty much.

Hey man thanks for that I think it has helped quite a bit. Sad part is as soon as gsync lowers the refresh rate to around 60 its so noticeable I wanna gouge my eyes out. So gsync stays off now. Sucks that the 300 dollar module I bought the monitor for is pretty much unusable. oh well what can you do ;p this one has 3 dead pixels up the top and the notorious thumbprint shaped smudge at the bottom right corner so Ill still be sending it back for a 5th ... but hopefully I get lucky and with these few tricks the inversion wont bother me so much. Thanks to all who helped

You're welcome. That's bad you have so much issues with it. Return it for sure, there are so much problems. I had no dead pixels, no dust, no smudge and no bleeding. It was almost perfect panel if it's not TN which I could not stand...

How are you guys liking the AG coating on this monitor?


I have a hard time getting used to it even after almost 1 year. Really messes up white and yellow colors. Those sunsets in games I have liked so much is just not the same anymore... HeartBroken...rolleyes.gif

'Liking' would probably be the wrong word to use for many. tongue.gif

I despise it. It's such a great monitor that is voluntarily ruined by the application of this coating. I don't understand why it would be difficult for a manufacturer to offer two separate models, one glossy and one matte. I had my VG248QE's dematted by Vega and I don't think I'll ever get used to the coating on this monitor after coming from them. It's a shame because that is my only complaint about the monitor.

I see. Yeh it really is the main thing negative about this monitor, would be really pleased with it if not for the coating. I got even used to the colors and some bleed as well, but the coating is just something I cant get used to.

Someone know if the new asus IPS PG279Q has this issue?

It does not. It uses an AHVA panel with light matte screen surface and is much smoother.

Nice stuff, considering selling the TN and getting the IPS one. But what could they improve on the monitors if a new version would come out next year? Worth waiting or just getting the new one now?

Has anyone experienced this problem
Fresh install windows 10 Pro 64bit by default the desktop was running at 60hz I never noticed for a couple weeks gamed a ton and no problems, I did have the nv control panel preferred refresh rate set to "highest available" so I was gaming at 144hz and can confirm that by hitting turbo button in game.
today I download latest NVidia drivers and notice the desktop at 60hz so I bump it to 120hz on next reboot I get "out of range" black screen
hook up old monitor uninstall divers, hook swift backup clean driver install works perfect at 60hz go to 120hz out of range on boot.
tried 3 different windows 10 NVidia drivers same thing ever time.
set the monitor to 120hz via the turbo button,windows display to 120hz and NVidia control panel to 120hz so they all matched. out of range every time at boot
ran this monitor at 120hz on desktop with windows 7 since the monitors first came out with 0 problems.
i'm typing this on the swift at 60hz and just finished a couple rounds of battlefield at 144hz with no problems.
seems like maybe a windows 10 driver bug but do not see any posts with others having this problem.
any idea's?
