Samsung monitors of 2016 introduced (Curved, High Resolution, Gaming, Flat and Business monitor.), help me understand 125% sRGB and quantum dot - Page 371

post #3701 of 3788
Played a quick game of Doom and I'm not overly happy with this monitor. It definitively is nowhere near the M270 regarding image quality. Colors feel off, not as rich and deep. It feels either too bright or too dark sometimes and obviously you won't be going through the black equalizer every few minutes. And the areas with fog (you know, such as the destroyed argent facility) feel completely off. hard to put a finger on it, but it feels as if the fog is thicker then it should be. hard to explain, I guess. 120hz via DP doesn't work properly and the monitor jitters, so you pretty much have to use 144hz. Finally, the lower resolution is strangely noticeable on this one, it kinda hits you at details, it's hard to explain.

My piece comes with Gamma 2.19 and delta E 1.6 according to the calibration chart, so I'm pretty sure it's as good as it gets.

Am I disapointed? somewhat. It definitively doesn't feel in the same league as the 144hz IPS screens. It feels more grainy, less deep (color wise) and just... weird.

The good part is that you don't really notice the trailing unless you actively look for it i.e. by moving around that CS test screenshot. In games, it's pretty much impossible to notice.

I'll try some more settings and games.

Are you sure you are using C24FG70?
Last time I played DooM 4 it looked ******* amazing. The reds, the greens - everything. Was smooth as butter, provided you have the juice to pump it up to 144fps, and the fog areas look like they should look - foggy areas.

I respectfully disagree.

Here's a video where the Samsung monitor is put versus an Asus that costs double, is with IPS and has G Sync- basically all the bells and whistles and should be vastly superior to the Samsung considering he is a way above in terms of class and has that premium IPS display :

I watched this video before I purchased the screens. I actually have both XB271HU and C24FG70 in my room at this moment. There are some issues regarding C24FG70 not covered in it, for example the suboptimal text sharpness.

It definitively does blacks better and doesn't suffer from IPS glow, but I feel less of a "wow factor" gaming on it compared to both Dell u2515h and XB271HU.

As far as IPS monitors go, I would also chose Dell.
For Acer - I don't like their products - therefore I don't support them.
However I still disagree with your feedback regarding the monitor, it's not bad as you describe it. Playing the Metro games never felt so good thanks this piece. And don't get me started on the skies S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and the rainbow of colors that is Mad Max with the Fury Road color mod. Looks awesome.

I'm fine with that. The one thing that bothers me the most is the fuzzy text. It looks perfect from 80 cm. When I lean closer, and I sometimes do, it instantly hits me that it looks sort of blurry. Played with the sharpness setting and cleartype, and there doesn't seem to be a golden middle.

The trailing stuff, on the other hand, seems overblown, I can't notice it in real games (not the "test CS screen").

The stand doesn't wobble if your desk is firm, too.

Can you record a video comparing Samsung and that Acer? VIdeo, gaming, text sharpness and etc. I will be really cool, because i can't decide between Acer XB271HU and Samsung c24FG70

sadly my XB271HU is already packed and ready for a return wink.gif

WHy do you return it?
post #3709 of 3788
long story. I don't want to make an offtopic here.

To make it short: excessive BLB.

I've spent some time fooling around with cleartype and sharpness. From 70cm, sharpness 64 + some cleartype tuning does produce an acceptable text. leaning closer, it loses some clarity, but it's somewhat acceptable.

Now, how do you choose betwen QD color and RGB emulation, exactly?

the grey uniformity is slightly awkward as well:



there's a bright, vertical line in the middle. Look closely. Weird, huh? It's only visible, well, uniform grey (or darker) backgrounds, so it's not very important, but what's that, anyway? a byproduct of curving process?

(also, it doesn't look very uniform on the photo due to the curvature. it's better IRL).
