An ugly and very noticeable bluish white streak of light bleed along the bottom bezel exists on most XL2730Z's. Clouding on all samples I had. The highest OD setting is completely useless with inverse ghosting beyond belief. Inversion artifacts are very noticeable and create an effect that is similar to motion blur. The headphone jack does not work at 144hz and that is a design flaw unique to the XL2730Z. If you ask Benq support about this they will lie to you. Firmware is buggy and half baked. With any one of these overpriced gaming monitors it comes down to the sample you receive and which set of design flaws and defects will bother you the least. As I said if you can get an MG278Q with no defects it's the best one. Everything works and the inversion artifacts are less noticeable. It would be nice if it had a gamma adjustment in the OSD but that is really the only fault I could find. Unfortunately I think Asus's QC may be the most inconsistent of all.
Can someone please try this? Because I remember someone EARLY in this thread managed to "Improve" the overdrive, but could not replicate their outcome second time.
This is the instructions on the *XL2720Z* but I want you to try it on the 30Z. I have a feeling you won't be able to do this with freesync as it requires the monitor to refresh itself.
1) SAVE Standard mode, with your normal settings (e.g.blur reduction off, sharpness 5, CV=10, all that stuff) into gaming preset #1 (e.g. for S-switch button 1). Save this into whichever preset corresponds to S-switch quick/gaming preset #1.
Keep this test running fullscreen (preferably in google chrome) so you get full framerate.
2) Enable blur reduction.
3) Go to AMA and move the slider from high, to off or premium then back to high and confirm. I don't know if the XL2730Z updates the AMA the INSTANT the slider is moved or only after it is confirmed. If is only after confirm, then select off or premium, confirm, then go back to high.
4) close OSD.
5) Activate profile#1 (that you had already saved). This should instantly disable blur reduction.
6) look at the testufo page again for any inverse ghosting changes.
Has the overdrive changed any from when you were doing step 1?
*edit* this really should have been posted in the XL2730Z thread, oops Edited by Falkentyne - 8/16/16 at 1:57pm
