So, I got my 32GK850G yesterday. So far, loving it, it is definitely a superior model compared to 32gk650F - black smearing is a lot more reduced compared to 650F, at least from what I've seen. I'm running this thing with OC 165Hz, GSYNC enabled and ''fast'' response mode, and games like Far Cry 2 had almost NO shimmer in trees, the doors didnt seem to have such apparent smearing in the black frames and such, like yeah, it's still there, but it's really minimal and you only really do notice it when you are actively looking at it. Tho I've been pretty unlucky with dead pixels, cause I had them on all 3 monitors I got now, this one is no exception, but theres only one that is legit visible, but its far right side and it's small, doesn't bother me and it pretty much disappears since it can't be seen that much exactly from an angle.
Opus, if you're considering trying a VA, you definitely have to give this one a try, games look AMAZING, like I just switched back from the IPS TV, and I dont have any issues with the colors, they look still pretty good, maybe not as punchy, but once I turned on a game like Resident Evil 5 at night, man oh man was I immersed, the contrast is flipping amazing, no bleed or anything of course as it's a VA, tho bottom does have a minor VA glow. but might be from the angle I'm looking. Color shift, cant comment much on that, did look for a few solid color backgrounds, and I did see a little bit of shift, but that could really make me care less, I sit about 60-70cm away from the monitor, and I legit have no issues with these shifts, they didnt seem THAT pronounced. Text and everything seems pretty sharp, not 27' 1440P sharp, but the softening/minimal blur it has doesnt bother me tho, games are smooth and pretty sharp, and I have no problems reading text or browsing web, and I know how bad a blurry text can get.
I love this monitor, the sphere light is nice, I would love to know if it's possible to turn it off, at least when I turn my monitor off, if not then ***. But the best VA panel I have tried, anyone that doesnt want to risk with BLB and IPS Glow should seriously consider checking this screen out, I did end up getting a deal on it for 440EUR.
