Samsung monitors of 2016 introduced (Curved, High Resolution, Gaming, Flat and Business monitor.), help me understand 125% sRGB and quantum dot - Page 361

What is the freesync interval of cfg70 latest version? The proper interval which can be used without any problem.

Picked up a January model at Microcenter over the weekend. Adjusted everything to my liking and set the Black Equalizer to 15 instead of 13. I can barely make out any purple trailing using the port picture. I also ran through CSGO on Dust and Lake House. I had to look really hard on Dust 2 in the tunnels to see any trailing and I would've missing it 100% if it wasn't for this thread. The Lake house map in the garage I could see a very little bit if I pay full attention to it.

  • Picture Mode Custom
  • Response Time Fastest for gaming auto-brightness? and normal for Desktop usage with a brightness of 35
  • Contrast 70
  • Sharpness 64
  • Color (red 48, green 49, blue 50)
  • Gamma mode 1
  • Black Equalizer 15


(I used this site to adjust black level http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php this was linked in this thread to make sure the first box is still visible, I read somewhere in here that someone adjusted this to 14 and the first box disappeared... that's not the case for me since I could still make out all the levels of black even at black equalizer level 20...)


Does the purple trailing look much worse in videos than in person? Because I didn't even notice anything until I started looking for it and even then it's so minor on my screen.

I know right?

I also did this when I first started him. Had to look really hard, and still 90% of the time I was missing it, had to slap my face on the monitor to notice it correctly.

I am with the Feb 2017

Do the following test, view this wallpaper (http://www.wallpaperawesome.com/wallpapers-awesome/wallpapers-nature-flowers-leaves-falls-flashlights-awesome/wallpaper-dark-green-leave-macro.jpg) on full screen with you browser (F11 for full screen mode) or set it as a desktop wallpaper and see if you can spot any flickering lines at the top or bottom of the monitor.

Do this @144hz and then @120hz

you look for dark spots on the screen. They sort of look like dead pixel but are usually bigger and less obivous.

Once again, black equalizer DOES NOT change anything. Set black eq to 20, then increase the brightness of the test picture (the bmp/jpeg picture, not the screen) the purple will be visible again!

Changing black eq just makes the prurple visible in places with different brightness.

On the subject of blackness equalizer, the OSD and what you guys suggest here is that higher the equalizer setting the brighter the blacks. My Nov 2016 display is backwards from that. 20 is the darkest setting and 1 is the brightest.

I think it says backlight not blacks, the darker the blacks the more visible the backlight becomes in contrast to those blacks. Mine is the same 0 eq is grey blacks

Backlight, blacks, same diff.

1 is bright and 20 is dark which is opposite the wording.
