Same as the rest basically.
Check my original post. I have a video with the same picture.
Although I give no flying $@#^ about CoD since I hate it with passion and I am not planning to play it, so I cannot give feedback about actual gameplay.

After running extensive tests I've found the flickering one doesn't have flickering when switching from Wide to 23" 16:9 (not really a suitable option since quality diminishes) and is eliminated when going from display port to HDMI instead. (120hz max and no freesync) So it might be a faulty display port. I did test multiple DP wires and all had the same outcome.

Are you guys with the 1.004 / February version getting the purple overdrive color shift issue? Have you guys actually tested for it directly?

Does it still DOUBLE STROBE at 60hz refresh rate with response time set to fast or fastest (Strobing mode?)

It even has the best calibration report I've seen yet. Problem? Oh yeah so after I checked for all those things I found multiple dead pixels!!! ***. The sad part is I am considering keeping it just because it is the best of all of the ones I've had.

Were your previous screens particularly...bleedy? That's the one thing I'm trying to get rid of in my constant return cycle. Haven't run into any dead pixels or trailing problems, I just want a screen that's dark when its dark.

Majority of them, but there better ones that exist. The one that flickers when using display port actually has excellent uniformity and zero clouding.

Only on DP? Does it go away with HDMI?

I ordered my new screen from Samsung directly, we'll see if it fares any better.

Won't be only DP, but I meant the one that flickers when I use DP as it seems it came with a broken DP. All of the October models I had came with very bad backlight bleeding, clouding, and poor uniformity. The two January ones that had other problems didn't have those issues. The first January had clouding in the upper left mid area and that was all. The second was flawless in that regard, but if I kept it would only be able to use 120hz through HDMI and not have access to freesync in the future.


Edit: Here is an image link showing the first January on left, and second on the right.

Damn, those are both massive improvements over the Novembers I've been getting. Here's hoping the one I ordered from Samsung is a newer revision, maybe it'll have better chances.

I use HDMI so I can get the full 144hz experience.
