The only other issue i had was a black screen every 30 seconds or so that lasted ~1 second if I was at 120hz or 144hz. I had picked up a 6' displayport cable and this was the source of the problem . I went back to the shorter one and no issues at all (just had to move my computer a bit).
I've not loaded the V08 firmware and will do that tonight. Under what conditions were there problems? I've not noticed (or are you telling the the colors can be even better?!?!?).
I would not upgrade the firmware.. it broke my monitor completely and now I have to RMA it.
