Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 257

post #2561 of 5191
I bit the bullet and opened to check it out.
Cyberlink's HDCP fails, surprise. I checked Netflix and Amazon prime video and they both seemed to work.
At least for 1 minute. I dont know if its a feature that checks periodically and will kick me.
So if that works, I guess not too bad.
I was able to pick 144Hz straight away. The Acer tn xb270hu I had for a week had 120Hz as the max so I thought it was a video card limitation.
I applied the tftcentral icc and settings and to me, this doesn't seem to bad.
I'll proceed with the pixel check next. After that, and tonight when AC and fans are off, I'll give a listen for that coil whine.
If none of that is present, I must just take the hit on this as I don't feel like dealing with the stress.
My pops is supposed to give me some funds for my bday. If that happens this weekend, Sat/Sun and BestBuy still has it, then I may give it a whirl and run in, but I wont try and move mountains over it.

Unrelated but holy hell Excel 2013 has some lag. I went to test the 144Hz smoothness and excel windows have an insane mouse lag. And if you rotate the mouse in small circles, its much slower than your hand, and it queues up the commands. Once I release left click it goes fast forward and looks like a crackhead on meth with 1 minute left to get to a free crack giveaway.

Nvidia control panel will tell you about HDCP. Just click on the status. It will tell you if it supports HDCP or not.

I think some screens may have to re-detect on if they are turned off or go to sleep.

I have noticed this with TV's in the past. I have never seen a re-detect over DVI(or at least never noticed it), but have on HDMI and DisplayPort.

While I do not see a screen redetect over DVI, my 650ti does show my DVI screen as non HDCP complaint after being off for a while.

I would find it hard to see any screen without HDCP(outside of VGA in that is)

I just bought an Asus PG279Q, and my panel seems perfect. No glaring QC issues that I can detect.

However, it costed me an arm and a leg ($900 here in Japan), but I'm extremely happy with my first foray into high refresh rate monitors, and I will never go back to 60Hz.


BUUTT, there's a deal here on Amazon.jp where I can get this Dell for about $590. That's $310 cheaper. Is it worth it to return the Asus and save my money on this monitor? Will I be happy, as someone who has used IPS panels for the last 8 years?

Im currently on an AMD so nvidia panel isnt an option. I could haul it into my daughters room and check on her pc, I have a gtx660 in there.
Minor issue but is the power button any better on the newer models? I had dig my fingernail into it to power this on.
If it wasnt so expensive I would probably look into modding it for something more practical.

Totally depends. If you know what you are getting into. You should be pleased along with an extra $310 bucks in your pocket. I myself have used IPS for many years. Its all I buy or use. If you can afford it. Hold onto the Asus until the Dell gets there. Try it and see if its worth saving $310 bucks.

OSD Brightness 20 = Luminance (cd/m2) 97.85 (tftcentral) // 94 (pcmonitors)

It seems the newer revision is so much brighter

My room is kinda dim. 120cd/m2 will be too bright for my eyes. If you wanna target 100cd/m2, what's the OSD brightness?

I am revising and updating my previous post with numbers and ICC profile. As I was re calibrating. I checked 100cm for you. You are looking at 16 brightness for 100cm.

Thanks.
I've tried your new ICC on my A02 panel. The squares in Lagom black level test appear kinda reddish. I'm now back with pcmonitors.info ICC, which doesn't have such issue. Anyway, this could be panel variations.

You are right about the panel variations most likely. That is why I mentioned possibly using it only if you have a A03 revision. Sorry it did not work out for you.
