I can see some crt scanlines type thing on my screen sometimes during movement in games. Is this pixel inversion? It's the only thing bothering me now.

Yep that's pixel inversion. Its my only negative point about this monitor.

I have a question,how much does all of this affect the average everyday user who just wants a good monitor to game on and watch movies who is not so anal with the 100% perfect picture etc? Is it so bad you can't enjoy movies on it? I play ghost recon phantoms pretty regular,and watch movies quite often,just seems their is not monitor in production without some flaws. Thanks for all the info on this topic you guys.

+REP for your great work on this.

The version 1's were the first ones I did and final versions are what I settled on. Now the monitor has been used for a few hundred hours it has naturally colour shifted so there is a need to re-do the calibration again. When I came to recalibrate there was a new version of Displaycalgui out also so I used that as there is no need to use colorsustaimer or cpk as it has a built in color loader.

I stick with 100cmd/2 for luminance as it is easy going on my eyes when I game at night. I also found out recently that the perceptual rendering intent looked much better in games therefore both 100cdm/2 3dlut folders have lut's based on this. I use 100cdm/2 final.

That's the one i'm using man, it looks good! Thanks for the explanation.

What OSD settings do you use with that one?

Anyone tried to fix the blb in the bottom right corner by loosening some screws?
It's a very minior issue, but was wondering if it's because there's too much pressure being applied down there.

Well the banding is to be expected to a degree but the profile definitely makes a difference. With TFT Centrals profile, i had banding on my works webmail login screen but with the profiles posted in this forum i don't see it. I do still see it on some wallpapers and games though. Don't think theres a great deal you can do about it

I forgot to mention with my last s2716dg, got flickering in CS:GO loading screen.
post #1939 of 4815
Well I think I've had enough. I'm going to try to get my money back, I'm expecting a 3rd monitor and I'm sick of the clutter. I've tried multiple icc profiles, basically the colors looks like crap for monitors built in 2015/2016. The white coating looks like trash and makes me hate looking at my monitor. Honestly in the last year I've used my computer less with this monitor than ever before. All of them have quite a bit of back light bleed, and from what I can see pressure spots on these monitors seems common as well. Honestly G-Sync is fantastic but these monitors are garbage for what you pay for. I'm not sure if BenQ uses the same coating as Dell and Asus but I hope not. I really think the way light gets difused through an AG monitor could be the issue. My glossy HP although reflective whites aren't so unnatural. Again I'm no pro, I'm sure lots of people can describe this better.

The whites on this screen are a bit bad, but benq is sub par monitor brand, they have insanely high amount of dead pixels per panel. last time i tried to buy benq had to take back 3 screens all with mulitple dead pixels, ended up with samsung s27a950d instead. the trade off for this screen is poor white for a great gaming experience. If you want good desktop usage you need ips. the color profiles also help this monitor quite a bit
