got my PG348Q yesterday and I want to share my experiences with you.

- no coil whine at 100Hz
- 100Hz no problem
- no broken pixel
- couldn't se any scan lines at 20 FPS. Tried different games and saw no lines.
- very little BLB (see pictures)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

shot with ISO100 (that's what I see with my eyes too)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

and shot with ISO200

I´m very happy so far XD


Hello everyone in this my first message !! and please excuse my english....

In a few days I receive the monitor and read the variety of results that you are giving your monitors.
I see you, CAPT1NIKO yours has gone pretty good. Can you tell me the build of your monitor?

I will be grateful if you can send me this information.

Welcome! And you might also want to read back in the thread, tons of people have shared their experiences! smile.gif

Here is mine after a few months of use, posted 6 weeks ago. It has only gotten better with time.

TL;DR: I love it.
Pros
- Great colors and uniformity (no luminance issues etc like with AUO 27" 144hz panels)
- Resolution and PPI are just perfect for me in this size
- The curve really adds that extra bit to the immersion, love it, everything feels "deeper"
- I like the design
- Input lag feels really low and it works really well at 60hz
- Very happy all in all, see below for more
Cons
- There is a bit of BLB left on top left and very very faint clouding on top right and bottom left; however not noticeable in my case, see below
- Scanlines
- Not really a 100hz monitor for some
- Not worth 1500 euros, more like 1199-1249€

More in-depth:
It feels better than initially. BLB has gotten better and isn't so noticeable anymore, I got the LEDs set up better and did some cable management, but most importantly I've grown used to working and playing with this awesome piece of hardware and I gotta say I am very happy indeed.

Now I only notice the bleed in games when I have brightness at 80+ and my room is pitch black and I have the LEDs turned off -- and then only if there are really dark scenes.

In normal usage and gaming with lights off + LEDs on I don't notice it anymore unless I specifically look for it up close with very high monitor brightness. I use it mostly at 64-68 brightness nowadays. 80 when its bright outside, 6 + f.lux + monitor blue light filter level 3 if and when working during the night.

Colors are awesome especially with OS X. It shows SO much detail, SO much more than my old BenQ TN biggrin.gif and even more than the PG279Q or Acer XB270HU that I tried. Gotta calibrate it better in the Fall when it's not bright during the nights here (sun goes just below the horizon for an hour then comes back up). The curve seems to set off some calibration tools.. but in the OCN owner's club was a good ICC profile that I tried and liked.

It's not perfect, though. Mine can't run at 100hz without very noticeable scanlines. They grow lesser at 95hz and again more noticeable at 90hz and below. Colors also feel a bit washed out at higher refresh rates but that might just be me.. So I use it mostly at the default 60hz that feels just great now. Scanlines also appear when the GPU is at its limits..possibly connected to bandwidth of VRAM (GTX 970), DisplayPort, monitor or all of them together. Happens only when VRAM usage is over 3.5GB (the slower 0.5gb starts from there) and FPS is to under 20. Waiting for GTX 1080.

I do use 95hz sometimes in more fast-paced games like Battlefield Hardline. Then I pump saturation up by 3-5% from NVIDIA control panel and start gaming.

The only real questions are that after trying it out, do you like it or not? Are there any REAL issues, and do they bother you in 90%+ of your normal usage? For me not so I chose to keep it -- and I just couldn't take more lottery after 354 days of that haha.

Overall, recommended!

If you want to learn more you can check my earlier posts and replies to comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUR9VF3k5Rg
Gotta post more videos & pics later, as soon as I can.

Good luck! I hope you get a good one!

I got a panel with a March date on it yesterday, there's BLB in the top corners. I've seen that all of the people with golden panels seem to have more recent manufactured dates. Is there a way to tell the date without opening the box?

Damn, looking over my box, that's what I feared. The Microcenter I got it from has had 10+ in stock for a while now. So I'm guessing they're mostly all from the same delivery. Might return it and try my luck with Amazon, since they're currently backordered until the 28th, hoping they're newer panels.

I'm going to try swapping at the Microcenter once. But it's an hour drive each way, so I may do it once or twice. But Amazon is my only other option.

Just got the replacement home from Microcenter. Lightbleed is about the same, but this panel can't get over 60hz. No combination of overclock setting in the OSD or pushing the Turbo button 100x's can get it past 60hz. Sadly, I think I'm done. These panels aren't worth the money or lottery odds.

Thinking about picking up one of these monitors. What kind of performance as far as fps are you guys getting in games maxed out Ultra. It looks likes the megapixel count is just a tad over one extra megapixel then what I'm running now. A far cry from the ridiculous 8+ megapixel that is 4K.

I picked up two from MC, but the 2nd was a little worse than the first. Guess I'll just keep the first and then like most thigs throw it on eBay when something new comes out. biggrin.gif
