its a nice monitor indeed, nice specs, cleans looks and everything... But...

Personally i can't use the G-SYNC function. It causes to much eye strain and i get a light headache on my left eye ball, weird I know.. Perhaps it's because I spend to much time playing dota. But I can notice the eye strain just after an hour or two(100-144hz tested) . Is it suppose to be like this? I therefore choose ULMB which almost has the same effect as GSYNC in terms of smoothness but no eye strain at all that i can notice.

But i have a new PROBLEM with my monitor i recently followed @GRABibus advice with settings and ICC profile. It worked great, in ULMD thou i had a hard time getting the colors and depth I wanted. ULMD is just a weird setting isnt it, flips everything upside down. After this i reinstalled Windows 10 completly (due to system problems not monitor related) and now all of a sudden 70% of my screen is blurry text. 30% on the left side still looks good as it used too, whyyyy?? it drives me crazy.
I have tried guru3d graphic driver uninstaller in safe mode but nothing helps. Ive tried reinstalling ICC profiles and resetting monitor to default but nothing helps. Any idéas? I've read about blurry text problems here and on other forums. Is this a RMA screen im dealing with or what?

Screen production date: May2015, serial F5LMQS132102

Sounds backwards. ULMB causes flickering which leads to eye strain and headaches. All G-SYNC does is sync the refresh rate to the frame rate, thus removing all tearing. I don't see anything about it that can cause strain or fatigue.

ULMB and G-SYNC don't have a similar effect at all; G-SYNC removes tearing while ULMB removes motion blur but does nothing for tearing.

I don't see any reason G-Sync would cause eye strain either. I use it any time I game and haven't experienced anything like that. I guess it's possible that G-Sync isn't functioning properly on your particular monitor.

It probably is broken. The only thing that can cause flicker is ULMB, but it isn't easily visible at 120 Hz. Have you tried unplugging the power cord from it and plugging it back in?

Getting really bad eye strain with this seriously, can only play for like 20 minutes at a time.

I think it's because it's a TN panel, it cant be because it's to bright only got it at 30 brightness with the pcmonitors icc profile and nvidia settings at 50 Brightness, 60 Contrast, 0.75 Gamma..

I can go back to my ips and play for hours but this just gives me awful eye strain.

How far have you all got your monitor on your desk from you, and at what height. Is it better to have the monitor lower down and angled up towards you or higher and straight on towards your eyes.

Hello there !

Here a video i made : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz5zB5tUvxw&feature=youtu.be

Hey there, add me to the list of owners, got one of these gifted to me last night by a very good friend and all i can say is wow, i love it.

gsync is working beautifully and all my games are looking super smooth now.

to others who have flickering issues, i too also had them. once i turned off vsync in the nvidia control panel and also turned it off in all my games i no longer have flickering.
i thought i had turned it off but after double checking it, it was still on. make sure gsync is on for full screen only and vsync is off in the nvidia control panel and also in all your games!

i run this on 2x titans in sli and it runs really well!
