[PC Monitors] Samsung S34E790C Curved 34" 21:9 Ultrawide VA Monitor - Page 50

Is there anything I can do (besides ClearType, which really does nothing to solve this issue)? I'm new to 'overclocking' monitors, not sure if maybe adjusting some other setting(s) might help maintain the fps while fixing the font issue?

That means the panel can't overclock past 61hz or w/e hz it blurred at. Also I highly doubt anyone has gotten anywhere near 85hz on this panel without frame skipping. http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping Follow the steps.

Interesting, thanks. Like I said, I'm new to "overclocking" my refresh rate. I've been using a 120hz 1080p 3d TN panel for the past 5 years - finally decided it was time to upgrade my resolution. I've made peace with giving up 3d for the moment, but I'm kinda missing the smoothness of the 120hz display. I'll check out the frame skipping test this weekend. smile.gif

Yeah, I moved from 144hz tn to this monitor and it was a hard adjustment for a whole week. Now 60hz feels smooth for me and I don't mind the 16.6ms mouse feel anymore. The aspect ratio + screen estate + va is amazing. I don't really care about high refresh rates anymore, just need that good gsync ****.

Yeah, mine just arrived yesterday, so I'm just now getting used to it. I recently picked up a Dell XPS 15, and the 4k IPS display on it really emphasized how out of date my desktop monitor was. Losing 3d and 120hz is going to take some getting used to, but I have very little faith that displayport 1.3 will find its way onto both graphics cards AND QHD/UHD displays in 2016, and I'm just not willing to spend another 12+ months with my 5 year old TN panel. So until gpu's & monitors support 4k @ 120hz 3d, this Sammy is a nice compromise upgrade.

I debated back and forth between this vs the Dell UW vs ROG/Acer g-sync, but at the end of the day I think I'll get more out of the deep blacks and massive screen real estate of the Samsung rather than g-sync, which is only really useful to me when gaming (which, honestly, is like 10% of my computer time). And yes, I know the Acer Predator is UW and has g-sync, but $1500 is just more than I'm willing to spend on a monitor. Gotta draw the line somewhere, ya know? lol

I've been playing a lot of Battlefield 4 on my S34E790C. 3440x1440 fullscreen with v-sync on, graphics on ultra plus resolution scale set to 125%. It's looks gorgeous. Battlefront with the same settings looks even better.

I have the 29" version of this monitor and mine overclocked to 85Hz without any frame skipping/issues.

That's interesting. I didn't even know that thing existed. It's not available where I am.
My panel doesn't oc for ****.

Think I've got very unlucky with my first one. Got some serious backlight bleeding issues. It's glowing everywhere on the four corners, even with 30% brightness. Makes it a serious pain to watch anything with black borders.

Hopefully I'll get lucky the second time.

Does sound very unlucky. I've had two, both had zero BLB, one had very minor clouding near the top only visible in a complete black background, but you had to go looking for it to see it.
post #500 of 545
I'm considering this monitor, since the ROG is ludicrously expensive and I fear that the typical IPS backlight bleeding will overly in your face on such a large screen (I have a 24" 1200p and it's barely tolerable).

However, the one thing that keeps me from ordering is the glossy bezel. I'm kind of allergic to those when it comes to monitors. Could someone describe to me how they bezels 'feel' on the S34E790C? Has anybody tried to remove them or cover them up? The screen itself isn't glossy, right?
