    thanks for the info. what about 1920x1200 85Hz? do you get issues when not using gtf timing (e.g. some of the timings requested by windas)? on my old pc, i have a gtx970, which has dvi-i my new pc has a amd 5700xt which only has digital outputs

    i've owned 3 smartphones and recently a laptop (galaxy chromebook) with oled displays. they are all samsung panels. i have the following complaints: 1. black crush. and the fact that the amount of black crush varies depending on the brightness setting. in principle this can be fixed by...

    a circular polarizer is just a linear polarizer plus a quarter wave plate. ideally the linear polarizer lets through 50% of light, and the quarter wave plate doesn't absorb any of that. a 50% neutral density film should be better than a linear polarizer. but might be hard to find i guess?

    OLED displays have the same issue. circular polarizers are the best solution. yes they block 50% outgoing light but there's no getting around that if you want blacks with ambient lighting. in terms of making black black, and blocking as little outgoing light as possible, circular polarizer >...

    here's an old post where i tried on my tablet a nushield dayvue film, which is also a high transmittance ar film https://hardforum.com/threads/24-widescreen-crt-fw900-from-ebay-arrived-comments.952788/page-290#post-1041253510 (btw i think the original ar is darker and less reflective on the...

    i'm not sure you get the point. a untreated glass air interface reflects about 4% of light intensity. (see e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fresnel_equations#Normal_incidence) a good ar film or treatment bonded onto the glass can reduce that to 1%. (if not bonded, you create more interfaces...

    about this ar film stuff: i am of the opinion that a film/treatment/whatever that has high transmittance is not very useful. why? 1. in a dark room, there's no issue to begin with. 2. in a lit room, the diffuse reflections from the phosphor layer are way more annoying than the specular...

    don't bother with a polarizer unless you are sure it is a circular polarizer.a neutral density film is better than a linear polarizer. personally i would not remove the ag film unless it's really really scratched

    hmm it seems like the entirety of my screen's viewable region is very slightly tilted relative to the bezels. i thought it was just one edge.

    alignment question: is it better to align to be parallel to the edges of the plastic bezel, or to the edges of the viewable portion of the screen (i.e. where the glass becomes solid black) on mine, those edges aren't always parallel (only by like 1mm)
