I hate repeating myself, but I can't help it: out of all my games, I can literally only spot the scan lines by looking directly at the clouds in Watch Dogs - and even then I'm only seeing the lines because I know exactly what to look for.
I'm heading off to work this morning, but I woke up early and spent thirty minutes 'playing' The Witcher 3. I was really searching for scan lines. Plain and simple, The Witcher 3, maxed out, is gorgeous on this monitor, just gorgeous, and there are no visible scan lines whatsoever.
I'm not speaking for anyone else... only myself... but although I can see the lines while running the pendulum demo, in-game (at least for me) this is a complete non-issue. When I get home from work tonight I am immediately going to delete that damned pendulum demo. I wish I'd never seen the bloody thing.
I'm in the same boat as you. Is there different severities of the issue?
I'm definitely NOT arguing that the lines are acceptable. They shouldn't be there. That said, for me to notice them I have to lean right forward and stop moving in any game I'm playing and only then can I faintly see them (for example I have to really stare at the clouds in AC: Unity. I've never 'naturally' spotted them, if that makes sense. I can definitely tell they're there in the pendulum demo.
I almost wish I'd never read about the issue, because otherwise my monitor has been just what I wanted so far. I'm past the 14 day return date, so unless Scan would accept it as a fault I don't have a choice on whether to keep it. Part of me is OK with that as I'm 99% sure in a week or two this will (hopefully) never bother me again.
Again, I'm not arguing that it's right - or that people aren't having more severe instances of it. Just my experience.
