My monitor just got back from RMA. Looks fixed *fingers crossed*. Flickering is gone and the text is crisp again. Now to see if I still have that magic with no overshoot.

I am just reading about the xl2735. Is it already out? Is the pixel inversion issue still there? I may very well swap my 2730 for the new one if they have fixed that issue.

Don't waste your money. The only difference is the firmware, but the other parts, panel etc., is equal to the XL2730Z.

Panel is different. XL2735 does not have freesync. 100hz strobing is fixed.

Hm, ok, my fault. I thought it has the same panel.
post #726 of 829
Wow.. how do you release a gaming monitor in 2016 for that price without freesync or Gsync? (xl2735)

What kind of nonsense is that? 800 dollar monitor, no gsync or freesync - yeah right lets pay 800 dollars for that sheet.
post #727 of 829
Wow...this XL2730Z panel is so crap...Now i've got a dead pixel again, after just three weeks of use mad.gif
post #728 of 829
hello smile.gif. please help me with my predicament (first world problem here...tongue.gif)
so, i have a gtx 970 and was looking to buy the XL2720Z monitor (although it kinda exceeds my budget) but i kept on hunting for price drops.
the "issue" now is that i just saw a XL2730Z monitor that is (i think refurbished is the english term for it...it was basically bought, and returned to the computer store and the computer store checks it and puts it up for sale at a discount price).
the price was so good that i kinda impulse bought it....
now the thing is....i was gathering money to buy the gtx 1070, but now my whole value system was turned upside down because of the FreeSync...i do want to take advantage of it, but i was looking at the radeon side of graphics cards and i don't see one i would go with....the rx480 is way under the gtx 1070 and in some instances the crossfire is not supported on some games....
so the this boils down to, do i stick with radeon for the FreeSync, or i go with the 1070 and just forget about FreeSync....i have a biig dilema here.

What would you do in my current situation, how would you handle the PRESSURE of going with a better video card or taking full advantage of the FreeSync?

Thank you thumb.gif

I'm using it also with a NVIDIA card, i haven't seen gsync or freesync in action before.

I don't believe you'll be missing freesync with this kind of high refresh rate anyway.
post #730 of 829
You might wait for AMD 490, which is supposed to come out end of the year (unconfirmed though). But I am also using a NV card, and dont have many problems with tearing. Ofcourse, the lower the framerate the more noticable tearing is, but Id say above 120fps its hard to notice tearing. Plus in games that have no problem reaching 140+ fps, you could use Nvidias Fastsync which eliminates tearing whenever the framerate hits 144+ fps. Thats kinda like adaptive vsync, except you dont get as much input lag.

The thing is, this monitor seems to be the best out of the box 27" 144hz gaming monitor. The gamma and colors are almost perfect out of the box, no need for adjustment. The Dell 27" TN might still be a better choice though, because it has a better coating and it has Gsync support. With a little bit of adjusting, the Dell 27" should be comparable to the 2730.

Both monitors have plenty of ghosting/overshoot, that seems to be panel specific in this case. Im sure they couldve tweaked the panel to have less overshoot, but then the response time would increase. It is basically the 1st ever 144hz + 1440p @ 27" panel. I think there is still some room for improvement and with newer versions of this panel, they might improve response times and reduce ghosting like on the 24" Dell.
