    This exact same thing happens on the Gigabyte FV43U! IIRC it was reported to FV43U thread here hon hardforum, and I also recall seeing it in FV43U user reviews on either newegg or amazon. Gigabyte firmware bug, Gigabyte hardware bug, or a panel...

    Issue finally fixed! I am adding the post TerraPhantm mentioned just for reference. My problem was exactly the same and as you can see what worked in FO48U case was a simple re-flashing of the firmware without any other monitor/TV connected to...

    Hi guys, first of all big hello from Brazil, so first time posting on the forums, I found this thread by searching about this specific monitor, read it in full and found it very helpfull wether deciding to buy it or not, keep in mind that here in...

    I signed up to thank you for producing these test images and highlighting this problem. I noticed these text rending issues myself in Windows but couldn't understand why some text looked worse than others until I came across your post about the...

    Well that's a plot twist after the glowing reviews full of superlatives. I'm doing things the other way round - I'd rather keep hold of the screen for the usefulness it gives me in work than overpay for an Ampere GPU in the current climate. Roll...

    Is G-sync set to both windowed and fullscreen? If so, set G-sync to fullscreen only. If it's not that, what comes to mind is: I launched a game on my primary QHD (144Hz) monitor, a game that likes to determine what refresh rate is used, causing...

    I'll accept that if you also concede that trying to say it's perfect and amazing and the best thing since sliced tiger bread over and over is equally as annoying.

    I don't have a detailed test chart handy from a review, but there is no way in hell its slowest rise from black is 7ms. That would be less than half the 32" VA world record set by the G7. (assuming balanced OD set on both) Edit: For comparison's...

    It's very obvious that in order to make them this size, the FV43U and its older 43" brethren are big piles of compromise, where many other aspects aren't as good as smaller alternatives in exchange for being large and 4K. If it's so hard for...

    Good to know, thanks.

    Essentially, because we can't buy a 32" or 35" CRT. With CRTs, we used to be able to use whatever resolution we needed to for decent fps no problem. This whole idea is an attempt to get some of that back, except on an LCD the size of the image...

    The high ~138 pixel density of 4k at 32" would make it impossible to do what I'm hoping to achieve 'cause anything sub native would look very small on that with no upscaling. From experience with a 30" 2560x1600 montior I know I found 102 PPI too...

    Whatever you choose, I think 27" is too small unless for 1080p (where going bigger will make pixels too large). 27" 1440p is still a nice sweet spot. After getting this 32" it is just so much better for gaming and movie watching. 43" could work...

    Integer scaling on a 32" looks really bad because it's just not enough pixels, you lose all sense of detail. It's not really an option, imo. At standard viewing distance that pixel count is meant for 24". With 1440p you are limited, yes but QHD...

    I was testing in Metro Exodus recently, and my 2080 Super just about pushes enough fps to stay above 75 at all times (sometimes reaching 100). 80+ is where a shooter starts to feel snappy to me (100+ ideally), but I'm talking without RTX enabled...

    Well I was saying painful as meaning inconvenient, but it did hurt my neck a bit having to look around to see the edges of the screen. Keep in mind, I had it at a normal monitor distance, about 1 foot (mostly because my eyesight sucks). I know...
  • Roen
    Thanks. I asked you because: I used to have a great 30" monitor, but after ~12 years it gave up the ghost. I then had to settle for the smaller 27" size just to have a g-sync module and a fast IPS panel with no obvious flaws. I wanted a 32" but...
  • Roen
    What made it painful, and how much distance did you put between your eyes and the monitor?

    Helpful video I found to get your black levels correct. To check for black crush, move your head to the side away from column 17, then move it in front of column 17. Here's a good example of really bad black crush on a different monitor:

    Nothing short of a miracle, because mentioning BGR is a conscious decision. When you're an incompetent support agent in a low paying job it's the perfect thing to talk about to avoid having to talk about the elephant in the room you don't know...
