I definitely would, but I'd return one with bad lines. But that one issue is really the only thing keeping it from perfection my needs. I wouldn't even return it unless there was a good chance id get one with zero scan lines which is why I'll wait and see what happens.

I ask not in the spirit of demanding proof but with the idea that if those who have the problem can see for themselves that not all units are bad, they can hope to get it replaced.

But all I see is people who do not have the problem claiming that it is a non-issue because it is almost imperceptible. And people with the problem claiming that most units have the issue but it goes undetected.

here is the test you asked for: picture from mobile phone, left side of monitor, 45 FPS fixed, Gsync on, OC to 95hz

pls download the image as the thumbnail quality is really poor


I see no scan lines or a very very faint trace of them

Decided to keep and not return. I don't think the backlight is much of an issue and haven't had any other problems.

And no scan lines. 45 fps as requested.

Your scan lines are faint, but they're there. Kind of spotty and almost non existent.

If you are seeing any, that's from the phone. There's not any special cases where scan lines take up more or less pixels than they do. Either you have or you don't, they can't be faint. lol.

Are they? I downloaded both funfordcobra's and bethormorgan's pictures and looked at them closely. I don't see anything.

In the fourth picture from the top of funfordcobra's post, what looks like scan lines are just the sub-pixel matrix blacks.

This is supported by the fact that in some other pics you can see black vertical lines. black lines horizontal or vertical are just the sub-pixel matrix being exposed depending on the angle of the camera..

EDIT: thanks to bethormorgan and funfordcobra.

I've not noticed any ever at any Hz or gsync on or off. I'm very sensitive to most monitor problems, especially scan lines and color shifts.

Sorry didn't actually see Cobras pictures.

In Beth's picture I believe I can see them to the right of the featured pillar. On Cobras panel it seems to be far less pronounced but I believe I can see a couple of "spots" where there are scan lines to the left of the pillar in the picture showing the whole monitor.

I could be mistaken on what im seeing but I see horizontal lines that look like mine.

Thanks for the pictures. Your observations definitely lend credibility to the idea that only some monitors have the scan lines. I'm getting mine tomorrow afternoon. Hope to get one like yours.
