    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    Not enough to make it noticeable at first sight. You'll notice the difference between a 1000:1 IPS and 3000:1 VA almost immediately, and with a 5000:1 VA it will jump at your face, let's not even mention plasma and oled. But between several IPSs with only about 100~300 variation between them it...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    Yup, panel lottery and quality control issues, things don't change in the LCD world. :p I consider myself lucky to have grabbed a 27xw before it went out of stock where I live. My unit (feb 2016) is not perfect (a bit of BLB and a 'clear stain' on the coating, plus the flimsy color control...

    Any chance of OLED displays going 120+ hz input from PC in the future?

    I don't see an LG having an actual 120Hz mode, even just @1080p. Vizio yes, but they're too cheap to offer OLED. Sony also could, but there's no way they'll buy LG's OLED panels. I agree with you there'll be maybe acouple of products similar to that super expensive Dell, maybe a few more in...

    Any chance of OLED displays going 120+ hz input from PC in the future?

    By now LG have already missed the opportunity to make OLED a big technology replacement market, probably they've had hopes to get plenty of TV panel orders from their competitors but it didn't happen (deliberate isolation, when you're not confident to win on a budding market the best strategy is...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    You know there's a whole chapter in the user guide about how to adjust the analog input, there are even testing patterns available on the disc. If 'auto' isn't working well enough you can adjust clock and phase manually. PS: they even provide color matching files lol.

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    - Ugh, they went for a three-step overdrive? this is useless as there's only ever one that's balanced (typically the first step, less often the second, the third almost never). - Your pic is a bit too over-exposed to tell, this is the problem with most cameras: they will make it look much worse...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    ^ I have brightness around 60~80 depending on what I do with it, and overdrive always on. Contrast still at 75. To be clear I don't have a colorimeter, only using a grayscale and fiddle with the settings until white looks white and greys look grey. I don't do color-critical work so for me this...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    I can eliminate the tint, whatever color it is, using the Custom Colors menu. @75 contrast on my unit the quick setting is Green 248, then I adjust Red and Blue a bit. Looks pretty great. And backlight bleed is an issue with pretty much every IPS monitor of any name brand whatever the price...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    ^ Yes contrast @ 75 provides a more or less balanced picture, I'm only judging by eye though since I don't own a calibration device for accurate testing. (my unit was manuf Feb 2016 btw) I'd say it's not just 'green' because various contrast settings make it lean towards other colors like red...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    Got a 27wx, it's just as good as NCX's review says. There's really nothing better in the 'classic' 60Hz Full-HD monitor realm, if you've only got about 200 zeni definitely get one of those good HP's. When I first turned it on there was some quite visible backlight bleed on the bottom left. But...

    HP 25-27" CW & XW: Almost-Glossy Overclock-able 1080p IPS

    I don't see how the 27xw tested using SMTT 2.0 would have any more lag that wouldn't have been visible, that method just doesn't lie and the CRTs that have a degree of lag aren't those like NCX is using. And it's not a slight overcklocking that will make any significant difference, nor scaling...

    Is G-Sync worth it?

    Dude, you're wrong or making stuff up on so many parts it's no use, you're twisting what people say mixing up with your own stuff to try and force your point, when you're actually clearly misinformed, especially about actual hardware and 15kh emulation. There's no discussion here, I realize I'm...

    Is G-Sync worth it?

    Huh ? R-Type synce to a 60Hz monitor runs at 109% speed, and it's cleary sped up to the point it makes that already very hard game even a little more of a challenge. Take another merciless game like Seibu's Raiden II/DX at 108% and yes that's too much of even a little increase. Also you can't...

    Im looking at getting this tv the Sony XBR43X830C or the Samsung UN40JU6500 for Pc monitor in 4K

    Sony X810C (2015) still beats them all IMHO (X850D is pretty close though), except on lag since there's a little bit more than the Samsung contenders. Also Rting marks -> lol

    Is G-Sync worth it?

    Well you know, I've been using CRTs and RGB since about the mid-80's (still do), so overall of course I agree it's natural for someone who have stopped using any for about a decade and suddenly decides to try one again to experience a kind of shock. But strictly speaking about LCDs and their...
