Yep this is the only way to do it, and it may not be possible depending on your situation.

Is there any way to boost the brightness with some software/hack, etc?

What pulse width are you using? I believe you can go up to 100, but then the blur reduction isn't that much.
Backlight voltage isn't increased to compensate for strobing, so this problem happens.

Hello all,

I recently got this monitor and I'm not sure if it is suffering from terrible backlight bleed and I should return it or if it's standard IPS glow and I have to live with it. It doesn't seem right to me to see this after paying the premium price for the monitor. I don't have time to go through all the pages in this thread—for those who gone through some or most of this thread, do my pictures indicate a normal or faulty monitor?

I got it from Newegg and am still under the 30-day return window. Should I return it for a replacement?

Thanks.

First 4 pics are at 25 brightness, second 4 at 50, last 4 at 75

It always looks worse on pictures then in real life with your own eyes.It is hard to tell if you should return this screen.
Fact is that the glow/bleed reduces over time. Give it like a good two weeks of heavy use and check it with your own eyes.

If you then don't see any bleeding or glow keep it and enjoy it!

Hi Pocketgamer,

Thanks for your reply. I'll try leaving my monitor on as often as possible with things going on it for as long as possible and see how things go.

The light is very noticeable in-game (currently playing Witcher 3) in dark scenes. Bright scenes tend to be OK because the overall brightness drowns it out, but it's still noticeable if I look for it. In dark scenes, it is immediately noticeable, especially upon transition from bright to dark.

How should I set the sound on this monitor? Is it always 100 on OSD then adjust volume via Windows. (That's how my previous monitor worked.)

Just picked this monitor up today from fry's for $699 smile.gif

Same here, I also got a GTX 1080 there at MSRP. They have everything that's sold out online. thumb.gif

I'd return it if it doesn't improve enough as you near the end of your return window. It should be noticeably better after it's been in use for while.

I'd connect to the MB directly instead of running anything through the monitor.
