AOC AG271QG Thread - 1440p 144Hz GSync IPS - Page 25

post #241 of 264
Hi there!

I read this topic almost from the beginning because I am very interested in the AOC. Actually I started looking at the ASUS, because I like the brand a lot and I had many ASUS devices in the past.
I am building a gaming computer (as indicated in my rig), but I am still not sure which monitor to buy. I have never had the chance to play on a 144hz screen (and with all the features the AOC has), so I have no idea how good it is.

Considering the type of hardware I want to buy, my intention is to buy a monitor that could take advantage of the system's performance.
As I play games, but also work on images, I am quite picky when it comes to backlight bleed or color/luminance related issues in general. It really annoys me. It is also one of those problems that when you notice it, the eye will always look there, where the issue is. My MacBook Pro has a negligible amount of BLB, but in normal use I don't notice it at all and the only way to see it is set max brightness, dark room and black screen (quite unrealistic scenario). In the past I had an iPad which I returned the day after the purchase due to BLB (they guy at the shop could not understand what I was talking about...).

I found a video on youtube (from about one and a half years ago) where they took 20 ASUS screens and found BLB to be unacceptable on about half and marginally acceptable on about 25% of the sample. So this means, as somebody mentioned in this topic, that good screens are around 1:4, which is quite bad considering the price range. Now, the hope is that QC has improved, but considering there still are recent buyers that complain about the same problem, I'm not sure if I should give it a try or not.

Even if initially, as said, I wanted to buy the ASUS (which of course has the same problem), in the last few days I found the AOC at less than 600$ new, which is a good price in my opinion. For that price it fits in the budget to the cent (actually I have 1$ more I could spend biggrin.gif ). The point is that I won't be able to return it, because the RMA procedure requires the end user to pay for the shipment, so if I have to send back many screens I end up paying the same as buying it locally.

What should I do?
1) I give it a try and cross the fingers;
2) Buy locally, even if it costs slightly less than 100$ more - quite annoying because I would spend more money as a consequence of bad QC from the manufacturers;
3) look at something else, even if it means that I won't be using all the juice the 1080 Ti is capable of providing.

I only buy monitors locally so I can return them or complain.

Do you think the AOC and similar screens (ie ASUS and Acer) might have a discount on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Hello all i'm thinking of this monitor for my 1080Ti
but there is too much case with backlight bleed.
should i buy or not ?
post #245 of 264
Don't buy this or any of the ips displays if you will not accept some form of blb. These screens with 144hz/165hz are @ there technical limit and beyond and therefore very few are "perfect" and what we would expect for this price range.

I could live with some blb as I am not a black screen fanatic.
Very happy with these specs as they are the high end right now bar none can match it.

Very simple.

actually i dont like play games or watch movies in dark room. i always light the lamb in my room whatever i study or play games.
So if there is not too much blb i think i can handle it.
i'm planing to buy from amazon and if there is too much blb like 1-2 pic in this topic i'll send it back.

this features is so amazing actually, 165 hz IPS especially G-Sync

Hi Guys,

just a stupid question about backlight bleed and IPS glow. I assume you turn off dynamic constrast while taking a picture of a display.

On my S27B970D (IPS, WQHD) I get this result with dynamic contrast truned off:



And with dynamic contrast truned on:



Am I right ?

Of course the result is quite different, and it looks AG271QG has dynamic contrast as well.

I don't think there is an equivalent option to dynamic contrast on the AOC.

Please note that this option does artificially increase the constrat on screen. The only thing I'm note sure of is how it really works on your screen.
I know it's different from local dimming you can find in Samsung LCD tv but the pictures you've taken show the same result : it is as if the blacks areas of the screen are simply turned off.

It can be a good thing if it's not messing too much with the image otherwise.

On my samsung TV there is 4 levels of dynamic contrast : off, low, medium, high.

Personnaly I enjoy the medium setting as I find it gives the image a bit more "punch" without burning some areas too much. But at high I think it's too much and I can clearly see that some details in bright areas are simply "burned"

Yet, the AG271QG spec metion a dynamic contrast about 50M:1



So I imagine this screen is capable of DCR, pretty much like my Samsung monitor and your Samsung TV.

I see some AOC monitor OSD include a DCR option in OSD, but it seems AG217QG does not. Maybe the 'shadow control' parameter does this?
