Just received an UHD420 from accessorieswhole. Only been a couple days, and so far there's been things I like and things I haven't.
It's big and bright and the colors look great, and I haven't found any dead pixels. All good. But it seems to have quite a bit of backlight bleed, which is unfortunate for the picture editing I plan to do (and dark games of course). The "disappearing pixels" on the sides, due to the parallax, was weird and bothered me a bit at first, but I'm getting more and more used to it.
A couple immediate questions though:
1) first a dumb one: there's no removable film layer over the screen, right? I peeled off a layer of film from the sides, but not the front. I'm 99% sure there isn't anything over the screen itself, but that 1% doubt has me asking.
2) Freesync. Anyone else not notice a difference? I installed the new firmware, turned on freesync on both monitor and in Catalyst for my Radeon 290x, and fired up the windmill demo. I kept changing the framerate, went through the various animations, etc,. But every time I toggled freesync on and off, I didn't notice any difference in the smoothness of the turning windmill blades, or any difference at all, really.
Is it just really subtle, or did anyone really notice a big change and was "wowed"? Anyone else notice basically zero change, or is this a sign something's wrong on my end?
I was going to post a picture of the backlight bleed and get everyone's opinion, but now not sure. I'm guessing accessorieswhole would just say "that's normal", plus the idea of an RMA to Korea sounds daunting.
