Thanks man. Unfortunately (well not really) my PG279Qwent back on Tuesday so no can do with visual comparison BUT i'll give my honest opinion on my experience with both.

I WILL be honest because i am very fussy and have nothing to lose by sending it back if it doesn't impress me.

I will take box photos, setup photos, desktop photos, videos of gaming etc etc Look forward to helping you guys out with making a decision.

If it looks anything like the photos posted earlier today, i think i'll be happy with it! I dont need professional IPS quality screen for some casual gaming and web browsing. Not for the extra £500 for the x34 anyway...

And of course the representation will depend on the viewer's monitor. So your observations are worth more. smile.gif

Wait for TFT Centrals review for optimum settings, also play around with the digital vibrance setting in the nvidia control panel. That can make quite the difference smile.gif

Careful opening the box. The whole side opens up like a pizza box. Lay it flat. wink.gif

Thanks, I'll see what I can do later messing around in the control panel.

Amazing! Please go on details about pixel inversion. smile.gif
post #217 of 5311
Pixel inversion has been noted in previous posts but only during the patthern tests and not in game or normal use.

Probably because these are different issues
The pixel inversion artifacts and green hue seem to only happen with the pixel grid test patterns
The interlace pattern artifacts or vertical lines are what you can see during normal use

That's the thing I'm scared of.
