Watch this video in HD, That shows the issue perfectly. Basically any animation or movement that's fairly fast displays the lines. They are less visable over 62% contrast

Man, you have really a bad luck. I told you do not buy TN. In any case, what is you opinion besides pixel inversion? Did you mind gama/color shift or were you fine with it ? What about angles. I'm asking because you can compare it with IPS you had.

The Dell design was fantastic. The viewing angles were fine for me and black was darker than the new gaming IPS monitors. Its a good quality TN Panel. Now I have gone back to my BENQ 2420T, the only thing I really notice vs the Dell is the resolution.

If I don't go for a replacement Dell, I will be on the look out for another IPS, just because it was sharper and colours were better.

Aaaaaaaand everything goes back to same one big conclusion about nowadays fast panels: TN or IPS, whatever...

THEY ALL SUCK AND ARE CRAP.

I would accept current IPS fast panels at price point of maybe 450 euros. Then I would say "ow, well...at this price point? I am ok with it".

But 850 euros or 650 is a BIG FAT JOKE.




Not even funny one......

RIP another try for a second monitor.


So I am one of the lucky ones with a good XB270HU but was shopping for a second monitor. Had hopes for this but rip.

The bad..... where to start here lol

First anyone saying this TN panel comes close in color to the ips's in the new wave of ****ter 144hz panels I just don't know how you could come to this conclusion imo. It is not even close and I got them sitting right next to each other.

Second I bought a Dell that has dust in the panel coating, I mean really?

Third the AG coating is so bad on this thing. Any light colors have a sparkle to it. I kept thinking there was a plastic cover on the monitor that needed to be removed for protection in shipping but nothing. gg

Fourth there is a bar of yellow/brighter light going across the whole bottom of the display like backlight bleed. It almost seems the panel is being pinched in the housing.

The good.....

First it is built good and the panel housing is nice looking.

Second Ok the blacks look good but be sure not to change your view from directly in front of it or rip that also.

Third is I had no expected pixel inversion.

Fourth yeah got nothing but maybe my monitor is just a dud from Dell.



Also I only have the camera on my phone atm so sorry about no great photo comparisons.

Did you even try to tweak the Dell's settings? Or did you simply run with the out of the box presets like most people do then come to the conclusion that it looks like ass. It DOES come close, I have an XB270HU and briefly had a 2730Z at the same time and yes the TN panel does come close but the matte coating just ruins it all. Plenty of people who own both can vouch for the color performance of the 1440p TN screens including display gurus like Vega. The ones who say the colors are not even close are the ones who most likely didn't even try to get them close.

I just tested low contrast on my ROG Swift, starting at around a contrast setting of 42 and going below causes this exact issue with the cursor showing pixel inversion when moving it fast, especially on a black background. Out of the box setting is 50; however, I do not see any lines when scrolling through content like Facebook.

I get my Dell tomorrow, I'll test it out tomorrow to see how it performs, but I imagine I will see a similar effect at some setting. Looks like a problem with the panel tech; though, some units might show it more than others. Individual mileage may vary, so to speak. But, IMHO, if it doesn't show up at ideal/standard image settings, I would not worry about it much at all personally.

I played with it for a while yes. It probably is the AG coating just ruining the image for me and under neath the layer of glitter it is a beautiful ips looking image.
post #369 of 5422
Been using this monitor since yesterday and enjoying it so far. Games look fantastic. I've seen better desktop monitors, sure (5k imac screen will ruin everything for you).

The AG is pretty close or same to PG278Q. It does take a little time to get used to if you're coming from a panel without it.

Colors are better than PG278Q I had out of the box.

No dead pixels from what I can see with 8 or so different colors in paint, no dirt under the screen.

I checked the extension inversion uniformity test, and see flashing and faint lines within the grey area. With my nose on the screen I'm not seeing it elsewhere.



My complaint with the monitor, is probably the top-edge dark / bottom-edge light effect is fairly evident because of the size.

I have it on an articulating wall mount, so I'll have to get some wrenches out to dial-in the tilt.
post #370 of 5422

Here is my attempt to recreate what Daryl is seeing, perhaps im a little dense but I am not seeing any strange lines, when I get close with the camera I see pixels. It is also possible that I am just not sure what to look for, but thankfully it isn't severe enough so that I would notice.

If you click the vimeo link, go HD and or full screen its a bit clearer
