Yeah, from browsing r/CRTgaming on reddit, I can tell that people that ask for prices on stuff like the FW900 aren't actually very serious about getting a FW900, otherwise they would have done more research and realized there is no reliable price for a FW900.
19" and 22" are fine.
A good 19" will do a nice 1440x1080 at 80-90hz on the desktop, up to 2400x1800 at 60hz for games. A good 22" can do 1600x1200 at 80-100hz on the desktop, and up to 2880x2160p at 60hz for games
Those desktop resolutions at or above 80hz are fine for working and browsing...
I wonder if the Xeneon Flex has a gimped HDMI 2.1 port like the Gigabyte and LG 48" 16:9 monitors. Maybe there is some incompatibility with the signal wants and the signal the games are sending.
Maybe try displayport? Or changing any HDMI-related options in the menu?
yeah, gonna be a while before we see those brighter panels trickle down to cheaper models.
1800 nits is really good though. Theoretically we're getting close to where we could have decent BFI + HDR, if LG doesn't completely abandon BFI in the future.
Oh, in that case, he should use the highest multiple he can do, like 100hz, then enable vsync+frame rate cap to reduce input lag. Or use one of the low-lag vsync options like Scanline Sync (RTSS) or Latent Sync (Special K)
I feel like you should a bring a CRT with you whenever you go so you can remind them what good motion resolution looks like.
Because I imagine, like most of the population, these guys haven't seen a CRT monitor in person in 15 years.
Then you should have been getting a purple tint on the desktop too. Maybe you just weren't noticing it as strongly there for whatever reason.
Using grayscale tests like this will make sure you don't have any off-hues in the image: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php
This the wrong way to go about it if I understand you correctly.
You said you only got the purple tint in games, not on the desktop?
That clearly points to a software problem, not a monitor problem. Because your monitor has no way to tell whether you playing a video game or doing stuff on the...
Guys, this is dumb. A deflection circuit isn't like a car's engine. The monitor wouldn't allow you to run 800x600 160hz if it wasn't safe.
I've been running my LaCie at crazy shit like 1920x1440p 90hz and 2880x2160p 60hz, 1024x768p 160hz, for years.
Don't be afraid to take full advantage of...
Guys, stop it with these these fucking comments every time a new monitor is announced
Not every monitor made by every manufacturer is for you.
Sometimes LG or Samsung will make a monitor you want, most of the time they won't
Some people like super duper ultra wide monitors. So they might like...
I imagine they're going to fix the VRR issue, would be incredibly dumb if they didn't. An R9 380x I put in my dad's PC supports VRR at 1440p on his Samsung TV. But I guess we'll see, Sony might take a long time to fix it unfortunately
But the PS5 does downscale higher res games to 1440p, it...
So you think running my desktop at 50 brightness with BFI is wearing it down way faster than 27 without BFI? Percetpually I'm seeing roughly equal brightness between the two (on my FO48U). I think brightness on my monitors is basically the same setting as "OLED backlight" on the TVs
And I really do think they could allow the pixels to go 2x or 4x brighter in BFI mode to support HDR, since they wouldn't heat up like they do in sample and hold mode. Only problem is that I don't think LGD is interested in doing the R&D necessary to support that
Also on the subject of the HDR calibration tool question for you LG users:
In the black test, when the slider is near zero but quite zero, do you guys get some instability in the black level? Like the brightness will drop or rise a half second after you click?
At a point, yeah. 13" is hard to make "big enough"
But small screen can still be very immersive, just by sitting closer. This is what I've always done with my 21" Diamondtron CRT, even when playing 16:9 letterboxed games from console. My face is usually about a foot and a half away.
