I'm aware people have had issues with back light bleed, motion blur and overdrive being disabled but I just received my monitor yesterday and so far I am very pleased with it.

Back light bleed on mine is minimal, especially when using the recommended brightness from tftcentral for the xb270hu @ 24.

With regards to overdrive, I tested using the ufo ghosting test and with overdrive at 'normal' you get very minor ghosting but a moderate amount of inverse ghosting. With overdrive 'off' there is slightly more ghosting (though still minor) but NO inverse ghosting. With this test I prefer the overdrive to be 'off'.

This is my first high end gaming monitor so I suppose anything will look better than what I was using. Any advice on what tests I should run to try and identify the 'many issues' this monitor apparently has, just encase I got the holy grail (or more likely I've become to accustomed to low end monitors to tell the difference between a good and very good monitor).

So just one question: People had problems using overdrive together with Freesync. They report that the corresponding menu item is greyed out so that freesync and overdrive do not work together.

Is this right?

I am still interested in this Monitor, but using overdrive together with freesync is the whole Point, imho.

That is a croc.

If Freesync is disabled on the GPU, Overdrive is still disabled.

So I went out and bought an Asus MG279Q from microcenter today($600 sweet jesus)

It does have some light bleed, but it's manageable. You can't see it when there's color being displayed. It's big, beautiful, and the stand is amazing.


The thing is driving me nuts. I can play battlefield 4, perfectly fine with or without freesync. Runs fantastic and looks great. Any other game i've tried in my arsenal(CS:GO and GTA5 rolleyes.gif) crashes. It will run for a good second or two (when the game loads into 3D action) and it will start going black. Does the same thing for CS:GO. It will go black and the game crashes(along with windows).



I really just want to use this friggen thing, and I'd hate to return it. I've tried the display port cable, and then switched to HDMI to see if that affected it. I unplugged my second display. Driver sweeped and reinstalled the crimson hotfix driver... Nothing, same symptoms.

Can you guys please help me, I can't find anything on google and this is driving me mad. I could always return it and get another 390X and a beefier PSU. Or just get a 1080P 144hz monitor....

I don't mind the price, but this is blowing my mind. BF4 looks and plays AMAZING on this thing, but nothing else will work right....

Surprisingly got a reply at the Acer forum. See if you can decipher this jumble of letters.

Hi hymccord,

Sorry for the late reply, but to confirmed, I asked and was informed that Overdrive is enabled as part of the Freesync this monitor, therefore it does not have the option to enable/disable on the Display Port.

Thanks,
Cory

Sounds like it's saying you can't enable Overdrive over DisplayPort.

I understand that overdrive is activated default , and not only can be changed.

It works but you can not change .
post #269 of 848
This is the answer I got from the acer forum:
Hi guys,



I asked about this internally and I've been informed that Overdrive has been optimized within Freesync, which is used with the Displayport. Therefore, the OSD option has been greyed out since it is enabled with Freesync.



I hope this helps,
Cory

trust me, it's 100% disabled, you can verify this by checking the lack of any inverse ghosting and the huge amount of blur, I'm using my new xl2730z and couldn't be happier, I feel like it's 20ms faster than that piece of garbage Acer monitor.

Just make a clean windows 10 install, you're describing a problem unrelated to your new monitor, I just reinstalled Windows 10 UEFI following R0ach guide after getting this BENQ monitor.

Btw: the colors on the BENQ XL2730z set to 14 color vibrance with the standard preset to 50 contrast, 100 brightness, 5 sharpness, and custom Color temp of: 95-99-100 are just as good as the MG279Q, but with premium quality control, no backlight bleed at all, no IPS Glow, smooth frame transitions, super fast response times and motion blur reduction, although you do get poor vision angles, so there's that.
