Not sure the scanline effect is due to the camera since usually, scanlines are also noticeable on the desktop.

No, scan lines is not seen on the desktop, so it is the camera

It's not scanlines, it's just standard pixel pattern seen from close.

Just zoom on this pic, you'll see the same kind of pattern.

Yeah, I don't see any scanlines in that pic. Also, I've never seen scanlines on the desktop on the X34.

It's possible you could get them by enabling G-Sync in windowed mode. But that would only affect GPU-accelerated apps. I leave G-Sync enabled for full-screen only.

Maybe, maybe not.

I would not be surprised, I can notice really faint scanlines on mine on desktop just like on all of the X34 I got before.
Obviously, they are harder to see than in 3D but for example, I can see them on the left blue pattern of this forum but none on the right side wink.gif

I will post some pictures tomorrow but I decided to send the monitor back since tonight, scanlines have sadly noticeably got worse.

I applied Witcher 3 Visual Immersion Overhaul mod and back to the game, I instantly saw these annoying scanlines on an entire half of the screen while it was really acceptable 2 days ago.
I'm sitting at ~2fts (60cm) from the screen and this is not acceptable anymore.

Really frustrating when on the right side of the screen, it's perfect and on the left, you lose sharpness and picture is a bit blurry frown.gif

That bad huh, would really like to see what you are referring to that would make you want to send it back. Can you do a video if possible?

I don't see any on the forum, even looking an inch away from the screen.

Do you have G-Sync enabled for windowed mode though? That would affect browsers as they use the GPU for acceleration.
post #287 of 3505
No, Gsync is only enable for full screen mode.

But I just discovered something interesting, this concerns the lack of sharpness and vibrant colors reported with PG348.

When I disabled Overclock to make some tests (to see if I could stand playing at 60hz with no Gsync... mmmh... no way lol) I've had the feeling that my desktop wallpaper was more vivid. Windows icons also sharper and with more contrasted colors.

When I enable overclock, colors are washed out again and image is a bit noisy. Any PG348 owner here could make a try, I'm sure this will be reproducible.

So Overclock OFF = better image quality and this is significantly remarkable in game (tested with GTA5 + reshade)
Overclock ON = washed out and noisy colors (like a faint film grain).

This is with the same color settings in OSD in both scenarios.

I never experienced something like that with any X34 I owned. Overclock On or Off didn't affect image quality.
When I disable PG348's overclock, the quality is on par with X34.

This + lack of gamma setting + scanlines, this is too much for me frown.gif

Does not happen with me, just you then, seems you have got a completely faulty one, no one else has mentioned this issue
post #289 of 3505
Yes but usually, almost everyone who own that monitor enable overclock straight away, just like I did and this is fortuitously that I discovered how the monitor reacts differently depending on wether overclock is ON or OFF wink.gif

If you have time to make a quick test, use this wallpaper, if your monitor is already overclocked, you should see pixelisation on darker areas of the wallpaper. Then disable overclock and notice if the wallpaper is not more vivid.
