Samsung monitors of 2016 introduced (Curved, High Resolution, Gaming, Flat and Business monitor.), help me understand 125% sRGB and quantum dot - Page 360

post #3591 of 3777
Guys,

after the AUO panel lottery fiasco, I am looking for something - anything - different.

I know C24FG70 has a lot of issues, but can anyone tell me if the newer batches are reasonable buy?

In my country the monitor costs as much as a Dell u2515h, and seems better (contrast, 144hz, FS) while being only an inch smaller and 1080p (which I can live with). I thought it would be a good monitor to wait for OLED on, but then again I realize how much trouble it has caused with the purple and/or green ghosting problems.

I literally have nowhere to go, I don't want to touch another AUO garbage panel ever again, and the rest is TN which I loathe. frown.gif

I really liked the dell s2417dg, only returned it because 400+ for a monitor for the games i played i could not justify. Not all TN panels are created equal, the one in the dell is really nice.

Well to be fair the Samsung's aren't a whole lot better in terms of quality either. Probably better yes but you won't be immune to QC issues entirely. I've had pretty good luck with AUO panels having owned 4 of them (Acer XB270HU, BenQ XL2730Z, Dell S2417DG, HP Omen X35), only the BenQ gave me problems where the ticking time bomb went off and it developed the fuzzy text+massive flickering after 11 months of ownership but thankfully BenQ was pretty great with the RMA service. But no matter what brand you go with you won't be escaping the lottery, just pick something you like and hope for the best.

I don't know if that helps you in any way but i have 0 issues with the C24FG70 even purple shift is minimal. Some people here have had bigger issues though so proceed with caution.

I have purple/green shift but is minor. Going down to 120hz on HDMI makes it go away. I have this for a couple weeks now also. Zero issues. It's perfect.

Are you sure hdmi is not defaulting the Output dynamic range to Limited ? it should be Full. Check it out if you've got an nvidia card

@Marlone; @kd5151

Good to have you confirmed smile.gif. I love this monitor and I'm sorry for any who has issues with it.

Hi guys,

I have bought the c24FG70 twice already (first one was january, second one was december). I have returned the first one, because it had a small hole between the panel and the frame in the bottom right corner (the space was few milimiters wide and 1-2 milimiters deep) - the frame was a bit convex in that place. Both monitors were great in terms of backlight bleed, colors, responsivnes and so on.

I didn't notice the purple issue on the first one but I did notice it on the second one and I am almost sure that is just because I was looking for it the wrong way with the first monitor.

The one I have right now is as I said a december one (with the 1004 firmware) and I can say that the puprple issue is indeed affected by the black eq and the eye saver features. BUT, it is only because they change the colors displayed on the screen. It is not true that purple issue is most visible between black eq 10-14 and disappears on black eq 20. If you set your black eq to 20 and then increase the brightness of the COD test screen the problem appears again. That is why I didn't see it on the January one - most likely i was using black eq 20 at the time and I used only the COD screen. Another observation I made is that modifying the black eq/brightness can change not only the intensity, but also the color of the overshoot from purple to dark green - but again, changing the black eq setting just moves the problem to places with bigger brightness and there it is still purple.

Right now I am trying to decide whether to keep it or not. I still love the screen, but then again It sucks that there is no overdrive setting to decrease the overshoot, and I am afraid that one day I will find a game where the issue is visible just too much to enjoy it :/

so the general consensus is that november models (and further) are OK, yes?

I'D Say they are all the same it's just that some people test the cod screen with different settings or use some photo viewer that changes the brightness of the photo (e.g. the win 10 default )
