I'm very tempted to get something bigger than 24" though and the swift looks great.

I got lucky on my second FG2421, with only 1 stuck pixel in the top left of the monitor that is almost impossible to see, except on a completely white page sitting a few inches from the screen. I don't have any of these extreme gamma shift problems, except for a slight tint towards green on the left and mostly right side of the screen when certain dark colors are present. It's extremely harder to notice now that I've tweaked the monitor with different display modes (one for regular gaming, one for fps, one for movies) that start automatically with the Screen Manager pro program when I launch different applications.

black level on eizo is amazing,also the contrast..no no i don't have problems with my eizo,just g-sync and the 27'' and the really good look of asus makes me thinking to upgrade.
i dont know,even my 770gtx will be die at 1440p...now on 1080p its fast.

also i'm thinking the cost,will be almost 450euro difference for asus,is it worth? .if i know for sure that the colors are similar with the eizo,maybe i go for it
but if the colors are like similar Tn panel as Benq,then its not worth the upgrade.

The colors on the Eizo are better.

Upgrading to 980 from 970? That would be a waste of money. You should rather get one 970 more. That would also be a must if you choose the Swift, unless you like playing games on far-from-high settings.

I lurked for so long to buy a monitor i lost count of the years, Hell i even lost my 20/20 vision thanks to Dell 2007WFP since my Trinitron broke back in 2000 i used it and watched people like Vega and others talk about the Eizo and i bought one around August and opened it over Xmas. I looked at the Swift and the blacks and motion put me off and you know its something i only wish i had a long time ago.


It would of probably saved me eyeballs, Now i have went from years of 1680x1050 60hz to when i am lucky enough to be able to power DSR 3840x2160p squeezed onto tis 24" at 120hz and with 240hz motion? Bye Swift! Especially when the motion blur comes into play it is huge. The only problem is the colors and angles i think it looks great on games but not movies? I fiddled by eye for ages and i settled on brightness 80 power crap off, rest default and manual color to 94 94 86 which was pretty much bang on thier settings for 6500k Gamma 2.2 but i had to reduce red because of the pull. And i still think it might be a tiny bit too blue. You do see some colors on blacks at the extreme edges too like green on black but apart from that WOW, A 4K CRT @ 120hz for £299 i saw them? Incredible i wont be moving until Gsync or unless i get fed up of my mouse because the motion is so good any jitters in your hand will be spotted easily you need perfection in your mouse setup to be honest.


Oh and because 1080p also you can do DSR 4x with smoothing at 0% like i do on WOW and its the only way i could stomach the new engine without MSAA and i previously would ***** and cry without my 8xMSAA. So yes im incredibly fussy yet this panel almost quenched my thirst which i guess means awesome.thumb.gif

I still have them and they are waiting for me when I get back from deployment, as I was and am still doubtful the Swift would be able to beat them for my purposes.

Once true input 120 Hz 4k hit's with a strobing backlight though with DP 1.3, it will be game over. Yes, you will need a killer PC but it's like the pinnacle of current display tech. I could see it happening within 2 years.
Can I ask you what is your job? I just wanna focus on the right career path, and your one seems to be pretty legit. thumb.gif

I've just purchased an EIZO FG2421-Bk and so far I'm happy with it. The only downside - a huge backlight bleeding on the side of the panel. Impossible to ignore it.. I've tried sending it back to the shop and they said it didn't have any problem. o_O mad.gif
I've emailed EIZO last night asking for some assistance and am waiting for their reply.
My current setup:

- 2x G1 Gaming 980s
- 1x EIZO FG2421-Bk

I'll be playing CS:GO 99.9% of the time and some upcoming games (GTA V, TW3). I have 2 980s because I was trying to find one with no coil whine. (hence why I got 2, I should be sending back one this week once I've chosen the best)
Question: should I sell my EIZO (and lose a lot because I won't get a straight refund from that shop of a***oles and will have to mention the bleeding to the buyer), send back one of my 980s (can still get a full refund) and then buy a ROG Swift to use with single 980?

Or maybe hope to find a flawless EIZO (assuming they replace mine) and stay in single 980 (because I guess a 980 SLI is pointless on such a monitor and I also heard it scaled pretty bad at 1080p)? HELP please tongue.gif

ps I still can't understand why the backlight bleeding doesn't occur on black backgrounds. Example: letterboxed movie. Top and bottom are completely black. Center side, where the movie is, has bleeding. Switch to Steam (the software), which has a grey interface, bleeding is present on the whole side of the panel (top to bottom). Does this mean my monitor really isn't affected by bleeding and I can work out a solution for it?
