Got a Wasabi-Mango 4k 42" Korean IPS monitor: What tests to run? - Page 102

post #1011 of 1246

Well from the looks of it, the 420 is old news, there is a new flavor of AMH and MicroBoard coming..

Does this monitor support 23.976 or it might appear as 23.98 refresh rate?

You might need to go into NVIDIA settings.

What refresh rates are enumerated? 50Hz?

If they are anything like the company that gives extended warranties at NewEgg (Service Net), I had a chroma shift (all people were green martians) that a local repair company picked up the TV and made repairs to the Motherboard. Then later when the Set started flickering and a giant dark spot slowly appeared in the center of the screen they sent someone to inspect the TV in place. They then let me do what I will with the defunct screen and reimburse me the current value of said screen as a brand new 46" Samsung TV.

Hope that gives you an idea of how Third-Party Extended Warranty companies operate if not a direct experience with SquareTrade.

Thanks for the Info on Square Trade and other third 3rd party warranties. I was away for few weeks so did not see this.

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.

snub - 4k freesync starts to become noticeable over 42fps which most single gpu's can't handle yet.

While definitely true, the windmill demo has a framerate counter, which shows I'm getting e.g. 55 FPS when I set it to 55 FPS (the highest you can set in the demo).


UPDATE: well, not sure what I was doing wrong before, but while writing this post I decided to fire it up again, and I could definitely see a difference. Judder is significantly reduced when at 45 FPS.

I just answered this question for you in the UHD550 thread.
