Samsung monitors of 2016 introduced (Curved, High Resolution, Gaming, Flat and Business monitor.), help me understand 125% sRGB and quantum dot - Page 367

post #3661 of 3775
I'm pretty sure the main part of the refresh IS the stand. Remember that little presentation?

http://cdn.overclock.net/0/09/500x1000px-LL-09a544b1_IMG_1042.jpeg

they flagged the stand as the monitor's "feature" so I'm pretty sure it's just a stand refresh. The original one is very wobbly so I think this is a good move.

You also don't have to worry about buying a pre-november model anymore.

If the price stays, it's a nice move.

Haha, funny stuff. They have that on the original CFG70's page, too.

@Astreon, the original stand is indeed a bit wobbly, but boy I love being able to set stuff on it since I have 0 desk space. You're right, though, it'll be nice to not worry about which revision you'll be getting.

maybe it's for the stand? biggrin.gif it's different and instantly looks less wobbly.
Nope all monitors have it even post november. You just aint looking at it. Some people cannot notice things until someone points to where it is. With this refresh they said they fixed the purple artefacting i have yet to call samsung and see if its true.

but many people say there's no purple trailing at all even when people point them where to look at.

Maybe there's some variance between the units.

I dunno where marclar is getting his info. This refresh isn't about purple artifacts, it's about the new stand. And no, all the monitors post-November do not have it. If anything, a couple of them had faint green overshoot, which could be made purple if the black equalizer was dropped low enough. Also, pretty much imperceptible. Maybe the early September models had bad purple trailing but I've been through around 5 of these and haven't encountered it once.

I agree with Kinetix.

I also don't experience extensive purple bleed.

Can't wait to see reviews and user reports on these new models.

I have my information from samsung email. Cfg73 has purple motion fixed and yes all cfg70s suffer. You shouldnt notice any purple artefacting at all when you up or down black equalizer. They have new firmware on cfg73 which is fixed (thats what they say still disnt try it) and all cfg70 owners are entitled to a free firmware update from a samsung service center

But you do experience minor purple artefacting which is still an issue which supposedly they fixed.

Any official statement from Samsung?

I cannot go to the service center and say "Well Samsung said I can do this in that, because a guy in the forums said I can."

Anything I can back this up?

No I don't. In order to have it, I have to tweak stuff, and when it's there it's really small, for comparison here is my "purple defect":

And yes, games look fine.
