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

Changing sharpness has improved it for some people. For me it just makes everything either too sharp or too blurry. This isn't a sharpness issue, its s sub pixel structure issue.

Cleartype wont help unless support for this new sub pixel structure is added.

Custom scaling may help? But I find deviating from 100% on any display makes text look awful.

Yes. Bumping the sharpness setting up and up makes everything look way to sharp. Default setting seems to be the best. If anything you could bump sharpness up a little bit but only a little bit.

This blur issue... I don't see it or seem to have it. Text looks perfectly fine to me. Either that or I don't have microscope on my hands.

I think this monitor is getting more bad rep than he deserves. And in the same time the others are far from perfect either.

I saw more than a handful of the same text complaints on amazon, having an owner in this thread confirm it tells me everything i need to know. Its very possible it simply just does not bother you as it would others.

BTW reason i asked is not to bad mouth the product or anything like that, its that its not a premiere eligible item and i would have had to pay return shipping if i didnt like it.

My text looks great at 64 sharpness. I haven't compared to my U2715H yet though but it looks good to me.

The only noticeable problem for me (and I've been through about 7 or so of these) has been backlight bleed. I've only had Nov revisions and most recently a March, but I never noticed any sort of purple trailing or whatever else with any of the screens. And my last Nov had a slight green tint to it. Check it:

Don't get me wrong, it's consumer right, also not sure if I have the blur issue at all, since I cannot test it or don't know how to test it.

It's not perfect monitor true that, but then again no other is.

A friend of mine got this week Asus PG278QR, and while the panel has good color reproduction and all, it could not hold a candle to my Samsung when it came to vibrancy, and especially the blacks and greys. There was some annoying lightness to the dark areas and sunlight did not improve things a lot.

And all that for double the price with a TN panel?

Even standing there thinking about it gave me buyer's remorse. But this was his choice.

No thank you, I am quite satisfied with my monitor, and I advise everyone who is wondering should he buy it - go for Feb 2017 and later, also that purple issue I don't think is a factor anymore, and games do not suffer in any way.

And all that while not being a fan of Samsung lol.

PS Watching movies on the "Cinema" preset is really pleasant.

I also think Acer/Asus stuff is overpriced for the abysmal QC. This is much cheaper, and (spec wise) it doesn't feel much worse. You give up resolution for better blacks, basically (size is subjective, you can always sit closer wink.gif). But you also save 500$...

However, a friend of mine returned FIVE of those Samsungs (albeit 27inch ones) already! reasons? dead pixels in every and each of them. Did you happen to find dead pixels on yours, too?

Nope, none at all.

Also I wanted 1080p specifically, 1440p is too much of a hustle and money for me to keep up. Cannot afford getting 2x video cards or getting top of the line expensive one.
So for me this is the perfect meta.

And if someone is wondering - I like the curve and no it does not make your games look weird (nor does hinder them).

Slim bezels would've been nice though biggrin.gif
