    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...

    Is G-Sync worth it?

    I'm just in disagreement with your 'considerable blur' judgement. My point is that such level of blur is really acceptable, not many 2D games scroll as fast as Sonic games do so often and consistently, and if occasional speedy sequences happen in many games it's not a catastrophe if your...

    Is G-Sync worth it?

    bigbluefe is spot on, most 2D arcade games don't move anywhere near as fast mouse-controlled 3D games do, a 60Hz panel with good average pixel response and no PWM backlighting is more than capable for those. And there are way more than 1% of games that are too far-off 60Hz for the speed increase...

    Will there be uncurved 1080p OLED televisions?

    ^ this looks horrible. *grin* I'm essentially playing retro games using external support devices in the signal chain (like stuff simulating scanlines and phosphors specilized linedoublers etc) and those require at least 'right' scaling (setting for integer), also deinterlaced stuff (movies and...

    Will there be uncurved 1080p OLED televisions?

    ^ people should be getting by now that it's not because it should that it does. most 4K displays screw up the simplest scaling job in case you didn't know. a number of samsung sets do okay, most sonys sets do it right, almost every monitor faild hard.

    Will there be uncurved 1080p OLED televisions?

    Yeah I doubt 1080p OLED will really come back. Maybe if there were a couple manufacturers other than LG and a war on prices we would see a number of those, but no... There were rumors of Chinese subcontractors getting ready to produce their own panels, but I haven't read any recent news about...

    Laptop not detecting external display

    Sorry if I missed it but; did you try hot-plugging ? (connect while everything's on) Intel or nVidia sometimes don't detect displays that aren't already active (even trying to force detection can fail in these situations)

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

    I'm curious to know how well this Acer scales up lower input resolutions like 720p, 1080p, and 1440p...? Because the BenQ BL3201PT / BL3201PH was criticized by Prad and Pcmonitors for its poor performance in that area, which is kind of a dealbreaker for me since I do need decent scaling from...

    Sony TV and PC monitor help

    Any risk your i5's intel integrated gpu is actually managing this ?

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

    But those built-in scalers aren't required to do any uncommon resizing that would require buffering, the 'tv scaling lag' is kind of an urban legend, in practice they do it as fast as any gpu does. it's an extremely simple job after all. Now of course if there's some post-processing added in the...

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    I don't completely agree with that, because to begin motion isn't perfect on low-res 15KHz CRTs (the natural displays of those games) there is some loss of definition in particular during vertical scrolling (in landscape, so for games like GigaWing, or vertical/portrait shooters that have screen...

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    Well it depends... how well does that work to compensate for hardwares like Seibu or Irem titles for instance that sync at around 54~55Hz ? For someone who absolutely loathes the slightest tearing and lag with those, G-Sync is golden. Then it's a matter of choice in regards to panel response...

    Well it's not the most user-friendly, mostly ini file editing and command line for some tasks (though relatively few: you can get away with just creating the ini at the beginning).

    Manufactures falsely demoing 4K and 8K screens...

    It's just marketing crap aimed at the average ill-informed customer, not at the niche/tech-savvy crowd. All manufacturers do this, more or less ('before' vs 'after' yay), you shouldn't pay attention. We should only visit manufacturers website for dowloading stuff anyway, not to read their BS. :D

    RA 'still got custom integer scaling and the best shaders so in a way it is the preferred one for playing on flat panels, but GM is slowly catching up in terms of useability and even besting RA's performance under certain conditions (ASIO, frame_delay). It'll take a bit of time but, for arcades...

    Is this a rediculous idea?

    Isn't it a bit too dark ? iirc Sony sets have an energy saving mode deep down in the settings, it's active by default when you buy them, and it dims the picture everywhere but in a very bright room. The pre-Android models did, dunno for yours maybe it's just the photo.

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

    All TVs are sample and hold. I know very well what I'm talking about, and your expectation of strobing is a non-issue for TVs since it'll never happen in gaming-relevant form, no matter the panel's technology. (well the Sonys did 60Hz strobing, but it's awful of course, much too slow) Top-of-the...
