Yeah I agree with you.
And who knows, you may give it working and then receive it even worse then before biggrin.gif

Price chart according to a chinese site:

Chg70 would be very cheap if this was true.

However it isn't, because ch711 isn't priced the same as cfg70

It's 50%more expensive

Could someone tell me what month this is?
Thanks.
I noticed purple artifacting in spots that should be grey, and some green tailing.. :'( when I turn monitor off and on it disappears.

Look for a sticker on the back of the monitor.

That's a Cf711, not Ch. Although it doesn't seem to exist according to google.

Anyways, that price chart looks like a pretty accurate prediction as far as the CFG73 goes.

Wow so the second one I purchased on Amazon for $259.99 + tax came today. It's has a December manufacturing date with the 1004 firmware.

The funny thing is I was planning to return both the one I got from Microcenter and the one from Amazon since I found out the CFG73 models were coming out... but this one is perfect.

I thought the first one I got from Microcenter was good with some very very minor purple trailing.. but on this one on all default settings along with the black equalizer at default of '13', I get zero purple using the "port return bay" image.

I googled a bit a found some interesting Info:

According to some sites - new C24FG73 will be ab 23. May available. But im not sure because this shop does not look very trustworthy.

https://www.vapsshop.de/Samsung-Gaming-Monitor-C24FG73-LED-59-69cm-%2824%27%27%29-Curved-1800R-1920x1080-1ms-350cd-m2-16-9-2xHDMI_DP-FreeSync-matt-schwarz/product.html/eid_4283954/


btw Anyone here from Germany who bought this Monitor with newest revision from March? I wonder what Germany Shop i should use.

I got the monitor.

The QC seems pretty good compared to AUO nightmares. There's no dead pixels, no dust, no BLB at all and the white unformity is acceptable. Curve is less offensive than I thought, albeit it's noticeable and unnecessary. AG coating seems OK. Text is sort of fuzzy, feels like typical VA in this regard. Quite awful in Word.

I sadly do have the trailing issue. It's purple on black equalizer below 13, gets green on black equalizer above that.

Not sure what to thing about it so far. I have to game a bit and see if it happens in different games.

I don't know how to check my mfg date, but the shop told me they use November, December and January models.

One thing that bothers me is that I have white dots (stars) on a deep blue background and it feels off... the stars look .. pixelated or something. Werid.
