Awesome! Can't wait to get mine tomorrow! Currently I am using an XB270HU with distracting glow in the corners.

FYI... just talked to Dell, and this monitor does NOT support nVidia 3D Vision (unlike the Asus ROG SWIFT PG278Q).

Meh i have a 4K curved 240hz 3D Tv i can gamestream if i wanna see 3D dont need another thing to break on my monitor or cause a halo burn in. Gsync is bad enough for issues. Im glad its one less thing to cause issues.

Hey Traxtech, thanks for posting your impressions of the Dell. Can you elaborate on the pixel inversion issue that was fixed?

Ehh that's a pity - I hoped to try it finally but I can live without it.

Very interested to see your monitors when they arrive chaps thumb.gif Be sure to post pictures and be brutally honest.

This is my Go-To for a cheaper alternative, my other is the massively priced Acer x 34. I have had bad experiences with the PG279Q (lots of glow etc) so I'm hoping for better things from the DELL.

That seems to be the case with the other IPS gsyncs too though, and actually most new 120+ Hz monitors.

Seems like the 3D gimmick is fading away, same as it does in TV area. Well in TV area not so much, because it makes more sense there I guess.

Other than that- happy to hear that @ traxtech. Can you please check if there are several Overdrive presets and if the "middle" overdrive preset does show ghosting? That would be another important thing for me, however if the ghosting is kept minimal, its no big deal and easy to get used to.

Thanks for your input so far. Ive ordered my Dell on Amazon, unfortunately Amazon isnt really one of fastest stores to get new gaming monitors in stock and they say it will be available mid december.. rolleyes.gif

I will say this- if the Dell is really pixel inversion free, has low pixel transition time and overall response time, has an acceptable coating, has no ghosting in medium overdrive preset and no intrusive BLB, I will be willing to return it up to 4-5 times incase I get dead pixels/dust under the panel, and once I get a good one, I will probably keep it for a long time smile.gif

Yeah I know IPS has better colors etc., I had the Acer XB270HU and Asus 279 here, but the panel issues they have on that particular AUO ips panel (extensive glow, VERY VISIBLE color uniformity problems TO ME, dust, dead pixels, etc.) are more annoying to me than the TN color shift. In fact I got used to the TN color shift after all the years playing on TN gaming monitors. It doesnt bother me as much as some ultra extensive glow, which you get on that specific ips auo panel. I simply couldnt enjoy any dark game with such extensive glow.

Now- if the IPS panel used in those 144 monitors was some high quality LG panel, with NORMAL ammount of IPS-typical glow, that would be another story. BUt untill then, its a huge pile of dog turd. I wont buy those IPS monitors only because there are no alternatives and wont accept the issues they have at this high of a price. Id rather roll with the TN and save those extra 300 EUR or so towards a future monitor with Samsung/LG IPS panel or maybe even OLED, depends on how long oled takes to arrive.

One thing is for sure though- I cant stay any longer on 1080p monitors, after playing on 1440p. The higher PPI is one of the biggest reasons to switch to a 1440p monitor and for me one of the most noticable differences. No Downsampling/AA on 1080p can reach the same level of detail, sharpness and clearness as a native 1440p, let alone antialiased 1440p.

In some German websites this monitor is around 600 euros. How much is it in your country? If it comes with that price to my country that would be great biggrin.gif
post #180 of 5224
I AM in Germany mate biggrin.gif

Yeah in some stores its 570 eur http://xitra24.de/eshop.php?action=article_detail&rid=gh&s_supplier_aid=5429070

I preordered mine through Amazon though for 595, simply because of the best service ever with 30 days return etc. I wanna support Ama for having such a fantastic service and dont mind paying 30-60 eur more for great service that didnt disappoint me once after buying there for years.

which is why I wrote I can save around 300 eur towards a REAL high quality IPS monitor with an LG/Samsung panel.

Because it seems that only korean (Samsung, LG) / japanese (Sony, Panasonic) companies care about quality when manufacturing panels. Unlike this dog excrements of a trash company like AUO...
