    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    Hey fellas. I had a 2015 LG EG9600 OLED, which I traded up for a 2016 C6, which I traded up for a 2017 C7 (solely due to lower input lag vs the C6, which is a dramatic difference). I have had zero burn-in on any of these TVs. Image retention can happen, but it goes away. With that said, I do...

    Acer Predator XB321HK - 4K 32" g-sync incoming ?

    Disagree. I never had an artifact appear with the Acer 4K TN G-sync 28", 32" Acer IPS 4K, 32" BenQ IPS 4K, and several 4K TV's.

    Acer Predator XB321HK - 4K 32" g-sync incoming ?

    When I had it, there were a few instances of 2-3 pixel thick lines of purple that would appear then immediately disappear in random spots on the screen. Happened maybe two or three times over a few days. Then about a quarter of the screen would go black and resume function - again, happened...

    Acer Predator XB321HK - 4K 32" g-sync incoming ?

    Yes, same panel as the BenQ BL3201PH. It has some slight artifacting issues that are very random, and very quick - not a real issue but something to be aware of. If I weren't used to gaming on a large OLED TV for the past few months, it would've been my dream monitor (for today's tech). I sent...

    Talk me out of a BenQ BL3201PT

    Then definitely go for the BenQ. 60Hz isn't that bad man... I came from 120Hz 1440p and never looked back. If you've never used a 32" or larger monitor, especially at 4K, you're in for a treat.

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    Unfortunately I can't. I returned the monitor. I just wasn't giving me anywhere near the gaming experience my 4K 55" OLED TV does. The OLED is not good for being competitive due to input lag and tearing, but boy does it look good... I never used anything less than native resolution, so I can't...

    Talk me out of a BenQ BL3201PT

    Buy the Acer XB321HK - same exact display, but with G-Sync. Panel artifacting does occur, but it is very intermittent/random, disappears immediately... not really a reason not to buy the display.

    It's happening, affordable 4k OLED TV's are finally becoming a reality

    Adaptive sync only matters below the max refresh rate. After that it's back to V-sync on/off, so you can't avoid that latency unless you want tearing. As far as subtracting, are you saying the vertical scan on these OLED panels is still noticeable? I guess I only considered the near-instant...

    Removing AG-Coating from Acer XB270HU?

    I did my XB321HK. It will really depend on the panel. This panel was very easy to do. An old ASUS 1080p I tried was a lot more difficult and caused slight polarizer damage because of the strength of the glue. I'm not sure if Max did it 100% properly or not, but if he did, that likely indicates...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    Poor value? Look at the other gaming monitors out there. 27" 144Hz IPS panels are $800. This thing is 4K, a huge leap in image quality, and 32". It's expensive, yes, but not a poor value. And I have zero problems with image scaling. 4K IPS is very limited in options right now, true. There are...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    Asus is selling their 27" 4K IPS G-sync version for $900... $400 more for 5 more inches is worth it. You can actually find this monitor for a little less than $1,200 right now. Welcome to the world of bleeding edge "gaming" monitor technology. G-sync is really beneficial for 60Hz and 4K...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    If it's just a momentary flicker like I saw today, then I can live with it. Might hurt resale value though. Hope it's not a long term longevity concern.

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    G-sync and V-sync are now independent of each other. I'm testing out what feels the best for me... right now trying it with V-sync off, but capping my FPS at 58 so I don't get tearing. V-sync on even with G-sync apparently still adds input lag, but I never noticed this when you couldn't choose...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    She's here fellas... and she is a beauty in a lot of ways. My only gripe is the stand - it's really cool looking (at first I didn't think I'd like it), but it takes up way too much space for my desk - might have to VESA mount it. Acer has come a long way since the first 4K G-Sync TN I bought...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    I don't anticipate any lag, but I could (hopefully not) be wrong. Acer's standard display with this panel B326HK had HORRIBLE input lag - it was unbelieveable! But considering this is a gaming display with G-sync, I'd bet my left arm it'll be fine. That is a very tempting offer... I absolutely...

    Best 4k monitor for photo editing (at least 30")?

    See if Dell has any offerings - they're typically targeting this audience. But the BenQ BL3201PT/PH is a good pick too (provided you don't get one with apparent random image distortion defections - check the thread in this section).

    Is this a rediculous idea?

    1080p is stoneage. You want to upgrade, right? Get a 4K TV. I saw the Vizio M series on RTINGS.com, 4K 120Hz (iirc), for less than $1,000... input lag is phenomenal on them too. Only issue is chroma will not be 4:4:4. I'm not sure what chroma level it uses (may want to look into it, or just buy...

    Acer 32" 4k 60hz G-Sync monitor is out

    Surprised there isn't more hype about this monitor. There was a decent amount of talk a year ago about the PG27AQ which is only 27". You'd think a 32" would be a lot more desired. It is suspected it shares the same panel as the BenQ BL3201PH which is a great panel. 4K at 32" is fantastic. I had...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    The EC9300 apparently had slightly lower lag than all the 4K OLEDs. With V-Sync off, I find any game manageable (except R6 Siege - that game was built by idiots. It has inherent mouse response problems, which get compounded by any monitor lag). But side by side, it is still no contest for...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    So you got rid of yours, eh? I almost did... bought another JS9000 to go back to, since its 120Hz mode basically matches the OLED's input lag. Game mode is pristine... but after playing games on it, and trying to watch a movie with it, I just couldn't. OLED has ruined me. LCD is no longer an...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    Yes, same potential issue of dead pixels. I'm not sure on "stuck" pixels - those might actually not a be a problem? I had a Samsung plasma with pixel shift. My guess is no extra lines, only moves over so it'll clip the edges of content when it's active. You'll never notice though given the 4K...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    Do you own an OLED? No? Okay then. I have about 300 hours on my LG OLED, ALL PC use. Zero "burn" in. I've had the instance of image retention of say, desktop icons, but other than that, nothing. And it was only noticeable on a gray screen when I was specifically trying to find it. And guess...

    OLED Computer Monitors?

    Far from the truth. The difference is insanely noticeable in dark content. On the desktop, not so much. Bright game/movie scenes, not so much. But any dark content, OLED destroys VA. Backlit LCD technology is crap and will never get to the point of touching pixel light emission.

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    The only potential negative is that monitor panels are brand new. Hopefully they're using the same processes as today's fantastic OLEDs. Lifespan will also probably largely depend on the OLED light levels you use (think cell brightness of plasmas). The harder you push the panel, the less life...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Well, as much as I hated on LG in my last few posts and felt solace from Samsung's lack of input lag, I have a bit of new info to report... I have enjoyed gaming on the Samsung the past few days. It's so much easier to play FPS's now with proper mouse response. But the image quality has taken a...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    Blurriness only occurs when poor scaling happens. Text scaling in Windows, more specifically browsers, does not have this issue from my experience. Separate applications are another story. Sharpness is all relative to viewing distance. On my 4K screen from really far away, sure, your image looks...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    1 pixel thick - razor sharp? Are you nuts? 1 pixel would look like 8-bit Mario. You NEED a lot of pixels to make text look razor sharp. Our alphabet is not entirely straight lines. Square pixels cannot reproduce curves without using a lot of them with antialiasing. I sit about 28"-34" away...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    You'll get used to it, and not want to go back. Pulling out my 27" monitor was pitiful after using large displays for almost a year. This 48" still feels small because of that darn 55"! If you're using the 55" JS9000 as a monitor, the edges may wash out due to the viewing angle limitations a...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    Yep. Picked one up from Microcenter about a year ago to try it out. While it looked decent, it felt like garbage from the moment I turned it on. The BenQ 3201PH version is really good though, but expensive as shit for what it is compared to these Samsung TV's.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    I got my JS9000 in today. Surprisingly, it came with firmware 1007 - who knew they'd still be shipping those, JEEZ! I don't think I'll be updating the firmware unless someone can run some tests like I have done to prove the input lag doesn't increase anywhere. Even with the lower chroma in game...

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    I read somewhere, someone posted DP 1.3 didn't have enough bandwidth for 120Hz 4K - can anyone run the numbers? Also, 120Hz is still very viable. I have Titan X SLI under water, and while some of today's AAA games won't hit 120 FPS, they certainly go over 60, so there is benefit to it. Old...
