Are you able to test the screen on another system? To rule things out.


By the way.
@Dargonplay

I am still very happy with my choice (xl2730z).
Thanks for the tips again.

It is definitely a big step up. 23 to 27 inch, 1080p to 1440p AND 60 to 144hz. Oh boy. biggrin.gif
Still I have no comparison with other screens but so far I am happy. Gaming, especially fast games, are just lovely.

I am not sure on my calibration though. When I do the tests on Lagom (particularly Gamma) it seems to be pretty far of. Nowhere near 2.2 although I doubt these tests are reliable. Experience is nice so I doubt it is worth it to buy a calibration tool (Spyder etc.) to calibrate while I pretty much do nothing with editing which requires 100% accuracy.

Currently using:
  • Standard
  • 15 brightness
  • 50 contrast
  • 5 sharpness
  • Gamma 3
  • rgb: 95, 99, 100
  • AMA High
  • Blur off
  • Black EQ 0
  • Color Vibrance 10
  • Blue light 0
  • Instant On

And for games where I can get 143-144fps 99% of the time:
Same as above except:
  • 80 bright
  • Blur On
  • Intensity 10
  • Area 10
  • Color 11


Any tips?

I don't know how you people can use such dim brightness, for me its 100% and I wish it could go even higher to 450cd/m2 tongue.gif

Well, regarding your calibration settings, the only thing I would change besides brightness is Color Vibrance to: 14

Regarding Motion blur I use the settings with the most brightness, since you like your monitor to be dim you can increase its Anti Blur effects even more by increasing the intensity levels while in the same time increasing brightness, the Area settings is there to change where the Crosstalk happens when strobing, I'm not sure as I don't use Blur Reduction on my BenQ that much but I heard 0 is the best Area Setting so most artifacts happen down or Off Screen, don't quote me on this though!

Look which resolution and refresh rate is used when this happens in the monitor menu (not in the game menu or win settings).

When you play 1920x1080 and it scales to 2560x1440 at 100Hz it looks way worse than when it's displayed at 1920x1080 at 120 or 144 Hz.

This drives me mad that some games will use 100Hz which will look blurry on this screen compared to 120 and 144 Hz.

Right now with Witcher 3 I have the same problem that it would use 100Hz scaled to 2560x1440.

To get the 1920x1080 resolution at 120Hz I have to set this in windows and use borderless in game which is really annoying.
Same for games like Metro.

I wrote this earlier here that the monitor uses some weird internal scaling. And games aren't flixible with setting the refresh rate.
Also setting "max possible refresh" rate in the game menu of the Nvidia driver would have no effect when this occurs.

If you can't fallow what I am writing here, just observe the "current resolution" in the "information menu" when you start games and compare various resolutions and refresh rates.

I tried different resolutions at different frequency. Nothing really changes. It really seems an issue with the panel itself. Even in windows, if I move my quickly, I can see the exact same thing (not as strong as when I am gaming).

Yes, from time to time when I move the mouse and fallow it, I can see the black pixel mask.

But this must be something how the eyes focus and no technical issue.

I've received my monitor after three weeks and BenQ didn't changed the panel because the BLB is allegedly "still in the norm". ***!

I have a a long blue bar at the bottom of the monitor and several BLB spots. How can they say that this is no reason to switch the panel? I should send them some pictures again, but i have no hope that this would change anything. I don't know what i should do, if they won't change the panel -,-

Same response as mine then. I'm kinda lucky my replacement screen had a dead pixel so that there was no question about the refund. I'd say it's still worth it to lay on BenQ a bit more, use arguments that you're a loyal BenQ customer who is very disappointed and can't trust the brand again.. the whole deal. Maybe mention that you're actively posting in a forum about it wink.gif
And I'd definitely get a refund over a new screen if the chance exists. They are reluctant to send you a new one because it's very likely to have the same issue.

I'm going to lay low with buying a new monitor since AUO seem to be putting out nothing but crap on the private market these days, even the supposed high-end panels. I see lots of reports about backlight bleeding (blue bar, white areas) for this genre of screens, all brands.
Dell S2716DG seems to have the best chance of a good panel but is still a lottery - the bleeding often appears after a couple of months of use.

Everything seems fine except a weird and somehow annoying issue. I can notice it especially when I play. Basically, when I move (usually fast movement with the mouse) I can see vertical lines. It's like cross hatching but I am not sure it's that because the lines are not crossing....they are just vertical.
I am not sure if this is normal or not. Should I just call Benq? Should I wait for the amd card and see if something changes with freesync on?

Based on what I've read this is what's known as interlace-pattern artifacts. They manifest as faint vertical patterns during motion. The only review that mentioned them was over at PCMonitors.info here. I actually just asked BenQ about this issue yesterday and they told me it was fixed. I guess they lied to me.

I will try something like that. Maybe i threat them to do negative reviews about this monitor. It's not acceptable to life with this defects on a high price monitor.

I've bought the BenQ for only 450€ while Amazon had a limited special offer for this monitor. The Dell is an alternative, but i would have to pay 150€ more to get him. Also the Eizo Foris is an alternative, but he is way to expensive with around 1100€. But yeah, the AUO panels ar mostly bad.

They didn't lie. My monitor exhibits absolutely zero interlace or pixel inversion because I am not using the crap cable supplied with all of these 144hz 1440 monitors (vendor be damned). 2 meters or shorter and use a known good one and the problem is non existent. What is odd is that it seems every vendor tests these panels with different cables as it seems than the ones they supply with the monitor....that is stupid.

I don't think this has anything to do with cables. This is a problem resulting from imperfections in the voltage control of the monitor during pixel transitions.

Odd then how cable swaps have been known to fix these issues for many users on every panel of this type since the ROG Swift....
