    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    How's it going with the 50" this time round? Did you try the settings that gave you visual glitches last time?

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Enabling HDR on the monitor and not the OS doesn't make any sense. I assume it's just an OSD option that allows the monitor to accept HDR signals, whereas turning it off would force things to SDR (I don't know, this doesn't make much sense either). One thing's for sure, you can't magically have...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Unfortunately I don't have any experience with OLEDs of any sort. I have avoided them due to burn-in concerns as my work usage leaves static tools on screen for hours each day and I can't avoid this - save for moving the tools around and I'm not willing to constantly relearn my muscle memory for...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Knew someone would say it. ;) Can't avoid OLED popping up. No denying it's a panel imperfection but LCD image retention is usually a temp thing, it's not going to degrade my pixels over time and I'm not hiding my taskbar or changing any windowing habits.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    A few observations I figure are worth noting after owning a 50" QN94A for roughly 2 and a half months. I'm running with the input set to PC coupled with Game Mode as is the general recommendation for the best input latency. I'm still having to run at 60Hz, for the simple reason of having and...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Nothing of note. I've tried looking for the FALD grid patterns on various uniformity tests and I can't see it. Maybe I "won" the panel lottery because even on the one reviewed on RTINGS there's a small amount of it. I've been working on it and playing the PS5 for around a month now. Clear as...

    Hope the frustrating panel lottery works out for you this time, I'm still loving mine.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yeah, seems they all have the yellow tinting to some extent. On my favoured dark themes it would show itself as darker stripes along the sides and across the top and bottom, culminating in darker corners. Most of the time I'd have to be looking for it but the uniformity test in that video shows...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I still haven't seen anything like that almost three weeks in. The problem I faced was either waiting another year for the 2022 range hoping for the 43" to be properly spec'd (it would be less than a year but waiting for the prices to settle would take another year, practically speaking) or...

    Samsung QN85A vs QN90A for desk monitor gaming display

    Interesting... it really does seem the different panel sizes give completely different experiences thanks to the mishmash of manufacturers taking part in the range. I'm not sure what sort of anti-reflective surface the 50" has but it's not showing any rainbowing artifacts on any content or the...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    My 50" QN94A doesn't have 100% perfect uniformity, nothing does. But I only see slight patching on grey screen tests, along with the token slightly darker corners. No evidence of FALD grid whatsoever no matter what I put on screen, and nowhere near the side tinting of the FV43U. I wouldn't be...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    And at least they're confirming the direct backlight. The number of people I've seen arguing it's edge-lit is baffling. I'd say the first sentence in their verdict sums it up rather well for me.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I'm amazed they consider the text clarity good overall. No reviewer has ever commented on the pixel interference issue and how it badly affects text. Guess they just can't see it and/or have never noticed it which blows my mind. I don't miss it as my primary at all, it was doing my head in. And...

    Samsung QN85A vs QN90A for desk monitor gaming display

    The 85A wasn't an option over the 90A for me because the 50" is already pushing the limits of my desk space and 55 would be too much. I also sit a bit close - again, 50" is already a bit silly to most people looking at my setup. I love it though. I tend to use it as 2x2 1080p unless I'm working...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yeah, it's not for everyone like I said. I didn't think I could do 50" but I've made it work and I actually really like it. Completely understand why others wouldn't go this route though, I was very hesitant myself. Had the 43" version been spec'd the same I would have bought that one instead...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    After discovering at least two other 43" monitors from different manufacturers have the same flaw (presumably they all use the same panel supplier), I was reluctant to try another currently available 43" in case it was just a repeat of this nonsense. My argument has always been that a monitor...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Fortunately the QN94A here in the UK came with two remotes. My 9 year old Sony W9 had pretty much the same thing.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I tried many combinations of settings but nothing was satisfactory. I tried the Black Equalizer thing but it tended to just hide it for lights and exaggerate for darks, or vice versa. It also crushes lights and darks on anything beyond neutral. It's a lot better to just lower the backlight via...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I hoped the same, I'd still be using the FV if it wasn't for this flaw. I tried reporting it to Gigabyte. A few boilerplate replies and a couple of months later I got this... Other people in this thread also saw it happening on the equivalent ASUS and Acer 43" monitors. The conclusion I had...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Definitely visible on the right hand side if the test. All grey lines and text should be the same shade. Here is that test pattern on the QN94A.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    That was me, documented from page 16 of this thread onwards. It also works for light pixels above darker ones, heavily affecting anti aliased dark text on a white background - obviously a super common thing. Essentially every row of pixels interferes with the row below, it's just that some...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    In theory BGR will only affect text clarity if that text is using subpixel rendering tuned for RGB. I don't know how many games force that, given RGB isn't universal. Simple anti-aliased text without the colours (or even pixelated aliased text) shouldn't be detrimentally affected by BGR subpixel...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Yeah it definitely seems better after doing this, though I'm certain I keep running into the infamous LD bug. Might do the equally infamous instant-on switch off thing.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Probably the only thing I'd pull over from the FV43U are the overdrive level settings. I used "Balanced" which gave a decent subjective response time boost, but it was at the cost of a lot more overshoot than I'm seeing on this panel. Most of the time the slight reduction in apparent response...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I finally got my hands on the 50" QN94A in place of the FV43U as my primary monitor. Most importantly for me it has fixed any and all pixel interference trouble (did pleeeenty of tests) that was pissing me off on the FV. It has also made me realise just how yellow tinted the sides and...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    That pixel structure had me interested so I did some peeping on both the FV43U and my old 55" 1080p Sony W9 from 2012. FV43U Sony W9 Definitely some differing pixel methods here. The FV is more what you'd expect visually, as the darker rows between physical pixels denote where the rendered...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Only partially relevant but the FV43U does this too. It seems to overcompensate for the high contrast ratio of the panel and there's more of a difference between the black background and the first square on lagom than square 1 vs. square 2. Full native panel gamut looks more like I would expect...

    I think I'm gonna get the Motorola Edge 2021 instead

    My near-launch-day S9+ is getting a bit long in the tooth but doesn't have a single bit of burn-in. I'd soon get annoyed by it if it did, of course. I'm not really one to bury my face in my phone though.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I totally get that, obviously. I had a hard enough time explaining my case with test patterns and photos to back it up though. Perfect case of pics or it didn't happen.

    Looks like the 50" without the ultra wide angle filter to me, correct me if I'm wrong!

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Seems you may have jumped the gun a little with that return. Still surprised you didn't take photos given how adamant you are to get others to see it. You even recite the specific settings. Good luck if you try again though.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I don't know exactly how Windows deals with text but setting the subpixel rendering to BGR on Linux with KDE makes any BGR display I've seen show text perfectly. Or I can set it to plain anti-aliasing without the coloured subpixel magic involved and it still looks fine. I find the conversation...

    The 50" shouldn't have that filter on it. 55" and above will.

    You should have taken photos. You know how hard it was to get people to understand the FV43U (and other 43" panels) bug, yourself included. You kept trying to persuade me it was BGR text rendering issues.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    To be fair it does it everywhere but the very bottom. It just gets worse as you go up. But yeah, if other owners could take a close look, maybe take some photos as proof or otherwise (not to say I don't believe you). If it's universal I give up on large format displays but I really hope it isn't.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I'd advise you to go read my many posts in the FV43U thread, it isn't worth me getting into what is wrong with the monitor here. I've been over it many times and it isn't a fixable problem. This has nothing to do with blooming, zones, backlighting, etc. If the QN9*A (I'd be getting the UK 50"...

    Definitely want to hear from others on this. I don't want to replace the FV43U because of its pixel issues with another one that has similar crap.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I considered the 85 for that reason but 55" is just a bit too big for my desk. I'm already pushing it by considering a 50". The 55" would mean losing the speakers and I'm not willing to do that. The black uniformity on the RTINGS review gives me cause for concern too.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I believe there's a way to make Samsung TVs flip the image via the service menu. Whether it adds lag or takes other features away I'm not sure.
