So... it appears I do have it? I can see the red/green lines, but not as bad as yours. Video was recorded at 120 FPS and monitor was at 120 hz.

HI,
Your monitor is acting normally.
That's how my XL2720Z looks like.

The other poster had abnormal inversion. He was getting "striped" thick green alternating bars at the top moving boxes, which is even WORSE than the ROG Swift. That should NOT be happening.

Usually the rectangle on the right is green, the second one is magneta'ish, while the last two are much more grey.
This effect can sometimes diminish as the refresh rate is lowered. It also can be affected by contrast and overdrive settings.

Okay so my second one just came in and here are two pictures take from my god awful Nexus 4 camera.





The top picture is the first one I bought. It had a noticeable blue bleeding up through the bottom middle, to the right corner and up the side.
The second monitor seems to have better uniformity but isn't as black as the the first monitor.

Both monitors are running the same exact settings. The only difference is the first monitor is running off of DP and the other is Dual DVI. On the second monitor the whites aren't near as white as on my first monitor. It seems more blue for some reason. Basically the first monitor is whiter whites and black blacks at any setting.


Would you consider these black levels normal?

Hi guys, I just bought both the XL2730Z and the Dell S2716DG to compare. I connected both thru displayport but I can't get 144hz @ 1440p on the BenQ, while it works on the Dell. Any ideas? I did try the dell cable on the BenQ.
I can only get 144hz at 1080p and below.
GPU is a 970 GTX

Where did you go to change the monitors to 144hz? On the display itself or in Windows?

Windows. Where you choose resolution go to Advanced Settings, Monitor. There is drop down list of refresh rates that your monitor supports

I ordered myself a XL2730Z
Altho the IPS competition looks good on paper, the horror stories in threads about XB270HU, PG279Q and MG279Q really turned me away. How they send back 4-5-6 monitors until at last get one with "acceptable" level of backlight bleed and IPS glow and stuck pixels and DIRT. Hell no, I'm not ready to go through that.

Got my replacement today aaaaaand..... dead pixels. This time two in the top right corner VS one in the bottom left. I can't tell if I'm just having really awful luck or if you guys didn't thoroughly test your monitors. The pixels are so small that dead ones are rather difficult to pick out without testing on solid backgrounds like on http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php

Amazon was awesome in replacing it the first time but I'm growing rather dis-disillusioned with this monitor. I love the blur reduction feature, 1440p res and smoothness of the 144hz in CS GO, but paying ~$500 and getting TWO different panels with dead pixels in unbelievable.. I'm really considering whether to do another replacement or just get a refund and move down to a xl2720z..

Just checked and mine doesn't have any dead pixels.

I am at crossroads.
Getting a new Benq XL2730Z monitor. It supports both FreeSync and blur reduction at 144Hz and 1440p

Now the next decision I have to make, do I go for
a) (cheaper and slower) Radeon Fury and game at lower FPS but in FreeSync
b) GTX980Ti and push for stable 120-144 fps in blur reduction mode (lowering settings to stay high fps)

But never experienced Freesync nor Blur Reduction I can't say which one I will like better.

I am not sensitive to screen tearing, but i really hate lags and stuttering and dips to low fps
I did like 120Hz gaming at 1080p, smooth and responsive always.

Only 980Ti has the horsepower to output steady 120fps at 1440p, but reviews say Freesync makes lower fps feel as smooth.

Which one would you go for ignoring AMD/NVIDIA preference? Blur reduction or Freesync?
