Ah I see. I don't watch any shows on my monitor so I guess my use case scenario is different as it's limited to gaming only while my B7 OLED handles TV/Movies.

But as someone who has used this monitor to do gaming on for almost a year now, the blooming has for the most part, been a non issue for me. It's barely noticeable in SDR mode where my peak white is only 120 nits so I'm not blasting 1000 nits against black, and in HDR games it has only been a problem in super dark games like Resident Evil 7 and 2 Remake so I resort to my B7 OLED for those games as they are slower anyways so the 60Hz is perfectly fine for it. I just started Far Cry New Dawn and just like Far Cry 5 and AC:O I have not had any problems with crazy blooming. Instead of going around and doing test patterns to expose the monitor's weak point, just try actually using it for a bit and see if the blooming is a real problem for you on actual use case scenarios.
I notice blooming in real contents quite often, that’s why I post about it. Yes only in dark scenes, but it bothers me enough that makes me wonder whether a VA panel with 5x contrast ratio, less zones but 1/3 of the price is better. Attached are 2 pictures of Daredevil S02 to demonstrate. I also play Horizon Zero Dawn. The bright scenes are amazing, far brighter and vibrant than my oled. But when night comes, one you hit the machine, the sparks that come out of it light up the whole screen due to blooming and it looks horrible. Also, any hud near the corners of the screen invite ips glow/blb and all the details there are lost. Pretty annoying.
So I don't know what the second pic is, but the first one, the lamp blooming, but it would do that in real life, there would be light around it.

Has anyone spotted scan lines on these? Friend I sold my monitor to had me come over and sure enough there is faint whitish cross hatching that isn't uniform across the screen visible in Sekiro. It will appear 3-4 inch sections of the screen.

It comes and goes depending on the scene but it's only really visible when panning the camera against the sky *sometimes*

FYI this is @ 120hz/HDR.

Is what I'm describing the Gsync scanlines people always complain about?

in HDR of course and post some pics if its not too much trouble. I want to try the Asus one after the Acer I dont know if its any different.


I played the above video on my Acer with 80nits peak white, fald on and fald response to gaming ( i think on the Asus is fast).

For reference here are the pics of the Acer with that clip. And yes i know i adjusted the exposure of the camera to reflect what i actually see. There's no camera exaggeration. Thanks a lot guys. (Its around the 0:36 mark for the video)

wow that looks horrible. I don't have that issue on my pg27uq

You need to realize that just like with Pixels, the Amount of Pixels you have is irrelevant, its how many Pixels per Inch, that matters. Same here, how many LEDs the screen has is irrelevant, how many LEDs does it have per Inch.
According to you a 1inch monitor with a two-zone backlighting is better than a 65inch tv with more zones as the 1inch tv has smaller zones. That's not how it works.

Update I sold my pg27uq while it has nice picture quality and all oled has spoiled me and going from a 55 inch to a 27 is a hard pill to swallow 27 is too small for 4k I hate where I have to use scaling in windows just to read text I'll wait on best buy to get the LG C9 series in they have a warranty that covers burn in so I will buy my tv from them

HDR maxes out the DP connector at 98hz so from there on is considered a overclock for the cord and connectors.

Yup, how many more years do we have to wait for a 32" high refresh 4K display...
