On the one image I have what I thought was a dead pixel circled, but you can see all around it the slight white dots. This is what I am seeing, but they are incredibly hard to spot even in the dark. The other image if you look closely you can see the little white dots all around. This is what I am seeing on the acer as well. I find it really hard to believe I got 2 monitors with that many dead pixels.
Have you checked if it's dust?
post #7093 of 7406
Yeah it's definitely not dust. I've cleaned it with a microfiber cloth and no improvement. I've also tried JSscreenfix on a few of them and it doesn't do anything. So far tonight ive tried lowering the 165hz overclock and that didn't help. I'll try different DP cables tomorrow.

Any recommendations on hooking up Display Port to USB-C (Thunderbolt 3)? I was planning on a converter, but now see this cable that literally goes from Display Port to USB-C. But will it support an overclocked speed of 165Hz?


My other video options on my laptop are HDMI (which is a no-go since it's an older HDMI), and a mini Display Port (which is already used by a 21:9 monitor). So I'm going to use my USB-C / Thunderbolt video port... but was wondering the best method to connect from that to the monitor's Display Port.

cant find where I read this on forum, but am I correct that disabling gsync will result in faster input lag? my monitor at moment is 165 but game I play is around 110 on ultra so if I disable gsync i'm never hitting the 165. that make sense or did I read that wrong?

That's been my experience. I can consistently acquire targets faster and respond to threats with Gsync OFF. Screen tearing is a ***** but I'll take it if it gives me a competitive edge.

After 2 return I finally get a good one.
It's a Dec.2016 unit as the previous 2.
No BLB, minimal glow.
Color temp uniformity (the reason why I sent back the previous monitor) is still not perfect, but as it don't bother me I consider it good (for a non-professional monitor)
The interesting thing is that the monitor calibration was near perfect out of the box (to naked eyes), as opposed to the others which had a green/yellow tint. This one seems more bright as well, with better colors.
I can post some pics if someone is interested.

I'm jealous smile.gif

Please post the "grey pic". It shows the uniformity in a best way imho.

Mine arrives today and I'm pretty sure it's crap again. It's my 5th attempt.

Can't express how jealous I am regarding people who got great monitors in 1-3 attempts. For me, I guess 10 wouldn't be enough, lol.

I think you should lower your expectations on this monitor, you will never get perfect uniformity.
Here is my grey:

Still not perfect but the best I've got so far.

aww, left size is definitively yellow-tinted and the right side isn't, unless the photo exaggerates it.

But looks decent otherwise thumb.gif
