The thing with these monitors though is a lot of people are sending them back for blb and dead pixels.....the refurbs are tested and inspected...I think you would have less of a chance of egtting these issues with a refurb one.

Also what can go bad on a monitor? The screen usually..so in the process they most likely replaced that...so it's basically new at that point.

Has anyone who's purchased the Pixio had any experience with the Dell? I'm coming from a Korean 4k PVA3 monitor so I don't really have much experience with TN or IPS. I don't do any kind of photo editing, almost only gaming and browsing so the colors don't matter all that much to me, but I also don't want it to look like crap of course.

Assuming the 4K monitor has an sRGB backlight an IPS display will have very similar color reproduction, better viewing angles, but worse contrast than the VA screen in the 4K monitor. A TN display will be worse in every regard to an IPS display except for response time and will therefore have little to no ghosting compared to an IPS.

Inital impressions:

The DP cable the monitor came with does not work properly at 144Hz. An old DP 1.1 cable I have seems to work for now but I am getting a proper certified 1.2 cable.

No dead or lit pixels but the worst backlight bleed of my other two monitors, a 30" IPS and old Overlord overclockable 27" IPS . Looks to be par for the course with this panel, can be lived with but it is visible with very dark screen images.

Freesync works and overdrive works with freesync but there are some banding artifacts created by it. The monitor doesn't seem to show any overshoot though so it will take some more investigation to figure this out.

You can test the overdrive settings and overshoot here

The first test if run fullscreen (F11) is probably best for testing blur reduction strobe crosstalk, which that monitor doesn't have. Second might be simpler overdrive test.

What is overdrive and overshoot ?

I will take a photo but it's an odd artifact that only happens on changing images, static images don't show banding. It's similar to the picture below but very regular I may have to reproduce it in video. While unlikely it might be the cable so I also want to test with a DP 1.2 cable.

Poor picture but it shows the effect, distinct lines, bands in gradient images.
