Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 73  

post #721 of 1177
The picture a few pages back (black screen) just looks about the same as a decent X34, maybe a tiny bit better, hard to tell as I do not know the brightness and also there is a bias light, can you tell me the brightness and also take a pic without the lights on?

Also some other questions

1) does the X34 have gamma options? Or is i fixed gamma that you cannot change? Do you have a colorimeter to measure it?

2) Does yours have any buzzing or coil whine type noises?

3) Does yours have any scanlines?

Thanks

BLB looks about the same as the X34 based on that pic to me also. The older LG UC97 looked similar.

Not related to the PG348Q, but it seems LG has significantly improved on BLB with their newer UC98 monitor, I found this comparison pic from a review on Amazon (UC98 is on the right):

Don't know if that is indicative of most samples, but it's the least amount of BLB I've ever seen on an IPS ultrawide. Too bad that monitor is FreeSync only.

That's not indicative, backlight bleed varies widely even among different samples of the same model.

Granted this is anecdotal, but from what I've seen with these ultrawides, most of them look very similar in terms of bleed. Sure, there is a varying amount in one corner or the other, but that UC98 pic shows a clear improvement across the board.

I've not seen any UC97 or X34 that looked anywhere near that good. Could just be a golden sample though, we'll see as more people get the UC98 I guess.

correction: that's the least BLB you've ever seen on an IPS ultrawide. Not for nothing, you won't see a single lumen of BLB on Samsung's SVA panel.

Correct, meant IPS. Edited my post.

The monitor on the right looks like it is at lower brightness than the one on the left, and also not on an angle.... being on an angle = more IPS glow visible, having higher brightness = BLB and glow looks a lot worse, you can see in that pic that the black looks more black on the right, they are both IPS panels with ~1000:1 contrast so that does not make sense unless one is at lower brighness. The one on the right looks like it is on about 90cdm2 brightness or less, the one on the left looks brighter, but yes overall the right one does look better, it would also be very unlikely to have a TW polarizer to stop IPS glow (99% certain it won't), so I don't think that pic is very accurate probably, I would be very surprised if they are all like that.

People keep saying that, but 1080 is unacceptable low resolution for literally anything on a PC, let alone gaming.. I'm on a 30" 2560x1600 and it's frankly not high enough resolution for my usage which is almost exclusively games.

I think some marketing scrub decided 1080 was easier to sell since they could slap HD on the name and sell it to "gamers" who bought the concept hook line and sinker with no real knowledge that 1080 sucked. 1080 wasn't even acceptable 10 or 15 years ago when we played on 1600x1200 UXGA CRTs. Why do people settle for it now?!?!

I dont play games on my 1080p TV because they look absolutely terrible and its 10-15 feet away vs the 2 feet between my face and my monitor... I can't imagine 1080 in that scenario.. redface.gif

/rant off.
