This is by far one of the worst products I've ever bought, and the company is incredibly inexperienced. I sent in my monitor to be "fixed" because it had a "bad logic board". It worked fine for one week and then started having nothing but the same problems again. I have to solve this garbage monitor's problems constantly by messing with CRU. Whenever I am talking to them through e-mail, most of the time they haven't got a damn clue what I am saying and don't read the entire e-mail/response I send them. It's like they only read ONE SENTENCE and that's it.

Furthermore the "Dynamic Frame Control" option causes the monitor to stutter hard every 2 - 3 seconds unless I have FreeSync option enabled in the monitor's settings. However if I enable FreeSync then my mouse feels really sluggish and imprecise.

If I could afford another 144hz monitor I'd buy one and smash this one in with a hammer because of the amount of grief it's given me since I was convinced to buy it on Black Friday. Never go with an IPS panel for serious gaming, ever.

Congrats on your blanket statement for one bad product thumb.gif. I never had the monitor feel laggy when freesync is on unless my frame rate is low and that would be expected. What's your frame rate and game and why would you ever run Dynamic Frame Control if you are complaining about lag?

Pretty sure the product itself is bad considering how many people are having trouble with the default freesync range being incorrect and other problems posted in this thread.

How about just simply **being on the deskop** for framerate? I can notice the damn lag trying to move my mouse trying to click applications. Nevermind shooting at things in an FPS where things are constantly moving. I have to hope they move in a predictable path or stop moving, and my FPS is definitely not the issue. Simply having FreeSync enabled in the monitor's settings, not even enabled on the driver, causes some serious input lag for me.

Do you even know what Dynamic Frame Control does? Because not even AMD_Robert knew what it did when asked in Discord. Says there is virtually no information on the monitor about what it does.

Freesync enabled and one CRU fix to set the range to 55-144Hz and I haven't had an issue since. I got a very good deal on the 'Pixel Perfect' version as well, so I can't complain about the screen quality. I don't disregard the numerous complaints regarding this monitor, but I personally have only had a good experience with it thus far - especially for the price.

I was talking about your statment that all IPS screens are bad. The pixio isn't the best example of a high refresh rate IPS type.

I never had lag like that. Turn on freesync in the driver and monitor and keep everything else off. 17.4.X drivers have been causing problems for me and 17.3.X have been working. You should also turn on response time in the monitor.

As I understand dynamic frame control is adjustable vsync found in the amd control panle. Not sure why it is a setting in the monitor as it doesn't seem to do anything. I haven't tried it lately as the pixio is no longer my main monitor and I don't have three display port outputs so it's running on DVI.

Well good, because if Pixio is near high-end IPS then that's pretty damn bad for gaming.

Turning on FreeSync in the driver and monitor does nothing and there is still gnarly mouse lag. Also, if you have not noticed, the "Response Time" feature is removed in newer updates of the firmware. Yeah, they think it does nothing as they told me in their e-mails and so they removed it as a function.

Dynamic Frame Control is actually pretty damn good in helping me aim, even when it's stuttering. The only way to fix the stuttering is to enable FreeSync on the monitor, but then the monitor has gnarly input lag which then removes my ability to properly aim. So I am stuck with either poor vision, or stuttering, or smooth vision but difficulty aiming.

I'm probably going to downgrade my firmware again to something older that has the response time function. Idk what the hell those yahoos are doing. If I could afford a new 144hz monitor I'd buy one and then smash this one in with a hammer.

Response time is still there on FW V11

Activate it. Then go in-game and see if it's still on. No, it'll be greyed out. It's some weird bug in their firmware. I've reverted back to V08, the firmware with the best response time overdrive.

It's been 5 days and I haven't gotten a response from Pixio support. Either they are extremely backed up, or they are now ignoring e-mails from me. Maybe if they hired people who naively spoke English and knew a thing about monitors for customer support then I wouldn't have gotten so frustrated in e-mails. Guess I'll have to make a fake e-mail to contact them then.
