I wonder how many best buy had in stock. I would have ordered one. This stock scenario is ridiculous.
There is no shortage of them here in Europe, most of the shops seem to have several of them available right away.
800 instead of $800 (630) FTW though :/ almost worth buying it from the US despite the shipping cost.
Monitoring places that sell this and more and more seem to be removing the product all together from their site is there something we don't know?
Hey guys, a couple questions about this monitor (and other G-sync displays as well.)
I have a Pioneer AV receiver (1123-k) that I have my PS4, Xbox One, and PC hooked up through, then my LG IPS monitor connected to the receiver. Everything is using HDMI only.
I see that G-sync displays are currently DisplayPort only. Is there a way I can still use a G-sync display with my current setup (an adapter/converter,) and if so, would the receiver still be able to pass through the 144hz signal? This receiver has the option to completely disable the video processor so I'm hoping that it would work.
Thanks for any info!
Brightness 100! Holy crap, I have mine at 45, contrast at 50 and it looks fantastic in games.
backlight strobing cuts the perceived brightness level down by a lot so most people would have it maxed (and it would still be dim).
Comparing to catleap, running desktop in ULMB mode - is it more tiresome for your eyes, does it put more stress?
ULMB does not bother me at all and I have had six hour work sessions on this thing. Its strobing at 120hz in ULMB mode. Back in the CRT days anything strobing below 80hz would tire my eyes.
So "NVIDIA Control Panel" -> "Manage 3D settings" -> "Global Settings" -> "Preferred refresh rate" can be used to set the Swift to 144 Hz for games and the desktop. But is there a way to set the Swift to 120Hz after exiting a game where you were playing at 144Hz - without using the monitor buttons?
Yeah that's the thing - it matches the strobe frequency to the fps, and the desktop can keep high fps without a problem. When your strobe fequency dips to 100hz and less while gaming with settings vs gpu power that make the fps dip that low it would be more noticeable and eye fatiguing.
