You can enable the display of the current monitor's refresh rate in the upper right corner of the screen. If it stays fixed at 100 Hz, G-Sync is most likely off. But if it varies during gameplay, G-Sync is doing it's work.

You can also tell the driver in the Nvidia control panel to show in an overlay whether G-Sync is active or not.

And it definitely "over exposes" (if thats the right term) the orange/yellish glow in the corners. When seen through the naked eye, its no where near that pronounced.

Im sure some monitors have it worse than others but Im having no issues with that.

Update:

The hotfixed fixed my far cry 4 BSOD crash too! Thanks!!

Running at 90+ FPS and it is SMOOTH. I see the appeal of the extra 40hz in FPS games (though again, in Ark Surivial it makes no difference coming from my 60hz LG 34")

I have the LG 34 for a little now, and was toying with the possibility of making the jump to GSync/higher refresh. Your opinion was it was worth it?

OK I think I got as good a picture as I'm going to get of it, hopefully someone can see what I mean:

The same with my MG279Q. For windows use I set sharpness to 50, but games look crisper with higher values.

Just after getting my screen now. First impressions. Wow this thing is amazing. I am coming from a 2560x1440 Crossover Monitor and there is such a massive difference. I will post some more info on BLB/Glow soon when it is dark in my room but now it looks very minimal.

I have not jumped into any games yet but one Issue I am having is that I cant select 100 Hz in the Nvidia control panel. I can only select up to 95 Hz which is strange because I have selected overclock to 100 Hz on the monitor and it looks like it has applied. I am aware of a few that had issues at 100 Hz and had to drop to 95 but I cant even select 100 Hz in windows. Also adding it as a custom resolution in the control panel doesn't seem to work either. Anyone have any ideas?

I am running the latest 358.50 Driver on Windows 10 64 bit.

To the guy talking about forcing a frame rate counter ON in the OSD. Yes you can do that, and no I wouldn't want any number on the screen detracting from the immersion. But its is a good test feature to turn on temporarily to see if g-sync is working.

To the guy coming form the curved LG 34 asking if the upgrade to the X34 was worth it: I hate to say it but.... PROBABLY NOT.
You really have to ask yourself: What kind of game do you play?

War thunder is noticeably crisper on the X34.
Far Cry 4 is nicer on the X34 when panning as well.
Ark Survival Evolved: No difference between the LG and the X34.
Guild Wars 2: No difference.
BF4: Definitely nicer on the X34
GTA V: I hate to say it, but it seemed pretty much the same as on the LG.

Summary of my opinion:
If you have the graphics hardware (2 x 980 Ti's or 2 x Titan X's) to push any game to 100 FPS, then the X34 is worth it over the LG for FPS games. If you like games like SimCIty, GuildWars 2, Ark, Wargame Red Dragon (edit: g-sync fixed the occasional horizontal tear I would get while play Wargame Red Dragon on the LG) then I would say you WONT be glad you spent the extra money for the X34

Can someone confirm what the MNT setting in the OSD does?

I thought it turned color with G-sync was enabled....but when I set mine to MNT, it turns red and never changes color. I would assume that red does not mean G-sync....

But yet I have g-sync enabled in the NVCP....I've tried v-sync on/off. But the light is always red.

Ideas?

:/ the monitor has no sharpness features so I don't know what to do.

@skypine I'm shocked about what you say on GTA V. For me that was the biggest difference. I have almost the identical rig to you aside from processor and GTA was a huge improvement. I came from the LG too btw. I was getting sick of the input lag and I'm happy I switched.

Sorry to harp on about this, but I'm now getting quite concerned. I think this could be EASILY fixed with in built monitor sharpening.

Check out the loss of detail on the stairs with no sharpening:
