Possibly... I just know that I've tried a smaller one and I sent it back the same day because I didn't like how stretched out it felt so that would make sense.

SIGH. Stuck pink pixel on my screen. Yes I tried messaging it and using a pixel fixer like JScreenFix. Why do 9 out of 10 $1000+ monitors I always buy have stuck pixels? Being returned to Amazon now. Not sure if I'll rebuy it. I'm seeing some of the issues people have complained about here. I'll mess around with it for a few more days though.

Which issues in particular?

Nothing too bad. The image does look slightly washed out and the colors start changing the closer you get to the edges. It doesn't bother me too much. It's probably because I'm used to a glossy / semi-glossy & flat screen.

That's actually the below-average-for-VA viewing angle TFTCentral and others mention in reviews.

Honestly...I'm thinking about giving up gsync because freesync monitors have so many more options. My system easily gets 75 solid fps maxed graphics on games, which is what most of the freesync monitors support.

Agreed, but I don't see this as a long term problem (hopefully), as more monitor manufacturers are making GSync versions of their upper tier units, like LG and Samsung. Not nearly as MANY options as Freesync, and that's one of Freesync's biggest draws, but enough that finding a good monitor won't be such an ordeal... In theory

So I definitely have overdrive artifacts on mine, I can reproduce it pretty easily by doing the UFO blur test. Every 7-8 seconds or so the scrolling UFO's will have kind of a "negative" image overlapping in front of the image, it will stay for maybe a second then go away. If I turn the refresh rate setting down to 1 (which looks like it turns overdrive off to me) or if I turn the refresh rate down to 85Hz then it goes away. I contacted HP support yesterday, got redirected to the Omen support team and the guy I talked to was going to try reproducing it and calling me back today. Thing is, even if I got this fixed I'm not sure I'd want this display with the flickering problems that it has, I should have just returned it when I got a chance but I'm in the middle of moving and forgot to return it in time. Hopefully they can at least replace it for that overdrive issue so I can sell it for a decent amount, otherwise I'll probably just take a big hit and get rid of it...

FYI: Z35P is released and reportedly uses the same panel but overclocks to 120Hz as well.

If it OCs to 120Hz I wonder what actually changed... I'm also wondering if it will be possible to OC the OMEN to that refresh rate...
