The ASUS MG278Q does not have any blur reduction. The XL2730Z does have blur reduction modes. That is pretty much the only difference.

Not really. Benq has low blue light setting (not sure about asus), it has an s-switch and up to 3 profiles u can save, benq has aluminium stand, scaling features (smart scaling) and a pretty good realtek scaler for 1080p devices (not sure what scaler asus has).

Thats about all i can think of rightnow. In other words benq >>> asus.

Oh yeah thanks for this tip, it seems like it fixed my 60Hz issue for now, if not I will report back. I also happened to disable the Auto Pivot Sensor, since I dont need it enabled, but if it messes up the 144hz via DP cable, Im just gonna leave it enabled.

Resolution notice I did have enabled, cause thats something I wanna know if it changes etc.

Out of curiosity what does this pivot sensor do? Glad you solved the issue! smile.gif

You can swivel the screen 90° and it will tell your system via Display Data Channel (DDC) to turn the desktop without you having to do it in the graphics settings with tilt head.

I just tested this with Win 10 and DP and it did not even work.
Maybe it needs that Display Pilot Software from Portrait Displays for BenQ? Not worth it on a TN display.

Yes, auto pivot functionality always requires software to report its orientation. Quite right though, TN panels in portrait are not at all practical.

Gamers have been coming up with fixes and workarounds for issues since forever. Always a good place to start.

XL2730Z arrived today, I'm absolutely stunned, BF4 is BUTTERY SMOOTH ( 145 FPS cap + Freesync )
Yes you can't compare the colors to IPS, but you don't really see that in fast paced games.

Gonna experiment now with Strobe Light.

Any recommendations on how to set it for 144hz ?
