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.

Both looks like keepers. No purple trailing too?

Purple trailing exists still, but seems to be greatly reduced if anything. The left one has dead pixels and the right one has the flickering when using display port. So both have problems of their own sadly.

In terms of your previous post HDMI only goes to 120hz and the display port allows 144hz.

I hope you are able to get lucky. I've yet to find a problemless one. Might be a minor problem though that you can live with if it happens. I am still considering keeping one of the ones that I currently have even with the problems just because it is great in every other aspect.

What revision are the problematic ones? Nov?
post #3525 of 3777
I ordered one at Amazon. Can I ask the seller send me the newest date?
post #3526 of 3777
Dunno, did not ordered mine from there. You could try, or look for a local retailer of Samsung in your country equivalent.

I just got February 2017 model of the C24FG70 and all else seems fine - FreeSync is Standard/Ultimate, no color changes in http://cdn.overclock.net/e/ed/ed3912d5_fc8fa1bd_iw7_ship2016-11-2402-29-47-39.x-ms-bmp this image.

The problem I have with this monitor is that there's a fragmented blue/green flickering line/two lines on top of each others across the screen just half a centimeter from the top of the screen, more visible on the right side but it goes all the way to the left, just barely seeing some flickering lines in the left.

The line(s) is visible ONLY in full screen games and when the monitor is set to 144Hz in the OSD and Windows settings (Windows 10, newest clean installed AMD Crimson drivers).
Line goes away when I change it to 120Hz or below, FreeSync On/Off doesn't affect the blue line nor does any other setting combination other that the refresh rate 144->120. I'm using the DP cable that came with the monitor.
The line is not visible on desktop or full screen videos even when the monitor is set to 144Hz, only in full screen games.

Couldn't find anything on this in this thread, just the FreeSync line stuff.
Any ideas? Bad panel or something on the software side as it only shows on 144Hz mode?



EDIT: The line IS visible on desktop too if I have a wallpaper that has different colors on the top part.
Flickering line didn't show when I had plain black wallpaper or when I have Firefox in full screen (plain grey top part)
Goes away still if I change the monitor to 120Hz and below from the OSD.


EDIT: GIF of the problem - 144Hz -mode on desktop with grainy wallpaper image)

Did you bother to check what will happen with the included HDMI?

Your issue sounds familiar to this one:

I hope it's the cable and the monitor is fine.

I tried HDMI and it was fine, but that's probably just because you can only run the monitor max. 120Hz with HDMI, and with DP cable it was fine too after I lowered the refresh rate from 144Hz to 120Hz.
I'll return this one and get a new one from the same store.
Just bad luck I guess.

That is likely a cabling issue, be it with the external cable, or the internal cable. You could either return it, or open that bad boy up.

Purple trailing on VA panels is an issue with overdrive. My Lenovo Y27G which uses the same panel gets the purple trailing if the overdrive is set to extreme. Set it to normal and the trailing goes away.
