4. Perfect back light, no bleed at all but one dead pixel on the upper right. Very little glow

Decided to keep the last one because it's basically perfect except for the dead pixel, which is way up in the top right corner and so most of the time hidden by menus anyway. 4k glory ensues
Look for a sticker on the back of the screen

Haven't noticed such a sticker - on any of the monitors - but I didn't specifically look for it.

I think it's under the plastic cover for the cables, iirc.

Hello all,

New member here! Just bought the monitor and am very excited to add it along with my new build.

I have a question in regards to mounting. I was thinking of getting a Ergotech Freedom Arm, but wasn't sure on the weight of this monitor without the stand. With the stand it is listed at 25 pounds. The Ergotech Freedom arm can only hold up to 17.8 pounds, and the Heavy duty version is only for monitors between 20-30 pounds. Does anyone use a mount that could give me insight into what they use or if they happen to know the weight of the monitor alone without the base it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

hi guys, just wanna share mine. works good so far, have minimal blb lower left side.

So, my replacement finally arrived, and I have to say that I'm pleased (I made my posts a while ago). For those that remember, the IPS glow and BLB is now MUCH more acceptable, the panel is overclocked to 100hz no problem, no scanline issues, no dead pixels, but the colours still seem a bit washed out compared to my laptop, I guess the laptop just has some overly-vibrant colours that I got used to.


EDIT: I've decided to play around with nvidia control panel settings, and it seems to help but I'm still undecided to final settings. For now I've set contrast to 70% (from 50%), gamma to 0.90 (from 1), and digital vibrance to 55% (from 50%). This seems like a good starting point but as I said I'll probably change this in the future.

These settings make my screen look great!! Please if you update and find even better settings post here so I can adjust mine also smile.gif

Really? Seems like I'm not the only one with the washed-out colors issue then. Well uh, I've bumped the contrast to 72%, but toned down the gamma difference to 0.92 and digital vibrance to 52% (it really does screw with the colours a lot, a slight bump is all it needs imo). I'm still messing around with the settings as I do things though, and the settings themselves would obviously depend on your personal preference, monitor settings, the specific panel itself, and room lighting conditions.

Also a weird color anomaly I noticed, when I start up my PC, and I completely log in and am at my desktop, after a few seconds, suddenly some colour washing-out happens, I wonder what this is. Maybe some settings being loaded, like the ICC profile I use from TFTcentral, but I doubt that their profile would actually contribute to the washing-out of colours. Hm.

In any case, my quest to purge and exterminate washed-out colours continues.

You really shouldn't use an ICC profile that someone else created. Every monitor is different when it comes to calibration. The profile from TFTcentral could absolutely be the cause here. I guess they're okay to use if you apply it and everything looks good, but if something looks off get rid of the profile.
