Can you check if there is even minor purple trailing the black equalizer level at 13?

I don't see any. Can't say I've had any trailing problems with these screens, but just trying to get a uniform backlight is maddening.

Are you sure you are seeing BLB and not just contrast shift? I see almost no BLB on mine but do see contrast shift to the edges on a black screen. VA panels have contrast shift, no way around that.

This is on sale for 250 at newegg, but man the complaints about text being weird or images distorted at the edge of the screen is holding me back from pullin the trigger on this one.

Any users wanna chime in on those?

I see no distortion but the half height lower intensity pixels does make text (icons, certain graphics, etc) look messed up.

Ya that would probably annoy me to no end, thanks for honest reply smile.gif

What does "half height lower intensity pixels" mean?

This is my March revision.

The camera exaggerates things a bit but it's pretty noticeable in a game like Inside, I could see splotches of cloudy bleed along the bottom of the screen come and go as I moved through a row of dark trees. And that dark scene in Andromeda was driving me nuts because the corner was so luminescent.

I have a Asus VG248QE and the colors on this one blow any TN out of the water. From a gaming aspect it's amazing. There are problems like everything else these days but I have been following this thread since it started so I knew what I was getting into. Mine has the green/purple crap. But you know what I'm not that picky and it pretty much goes away once you use HDMI at 120hz. Mosted tested in css and csgo. Its also very bad on that asus website someone posted a while back. But again how often am I going on websites like that? Lastly the black eq set to 13 being the default and above helps.

As for texts. You know ,it is blurry. Kinda bothers me. In game however I don't notice it. If anything it makes it better!

Stand is bulky. And had kinda a hard time putting it together. The round base that is. It goes on funky.

IMO it's still the best 1080p freesync monitor on the market in 24" inches and glad I tried it. Even my Logitech G403 which is well known for its wheel rattle doesn't get to me. Of course I use the g pro as my main but at least I got to try it and choose which one I like better. Shoot even using my g303 which is also has lens rattle problems is still a killer mouse. Sometimes I can't make up my mind if I like the g pro or the g303 better.

If this monitor isn't for then maybe you should look out for something else later down the road like the Nixeus EDG or better yet something with HDR?

On the blurry text, can you fix it with sharpness setting, black equalizer and cleartype?

Does the problem persist if you use custom scaling, like 105% or 110%?
