The 494k has the least amount of glow I have ever seen on any ips. They are flicker free (Samsung is not), hdmi 2.0 and dp. It has freesync and the input lag doesn't feel too far off from my asus vg23ah (read ncx review on it). Without a doubt these are better than a TV, I chose this over one of those Samsung tvs. Oh and colors are amazing. At this point the only way I could be happier is if it had gsync (or amd made better cards)
" The 434k's main issue is its violet colour dominance "
What about that ? It's annoying ? Can you do some color / gamma / etc / settings, to get ride of this issue ??
