Oddly enough, the flickering just randomly stopped. I literally have no idea what caused it, but I'm exchanging it for a new one regardless.Damn, I hope the flickering issue isn't definitive, because this more and more looks like the perfect monitor for me.
And... no glow ? Seriously ? *drool*
I'm actually not able to do that as the holiday season has a stranglehold on my credit card for the next few weeks and I'm content with exchanging, especially considering there's a few dead pixels in the middle of the screen. I also have the AOC sitting around still, it doesn't have to be shipped back until Jan. 31st, so it's just chilling in my room boxed up. If worse comes to worse and the LG doesn't pan out, I'll probably just cancel the return and keep the AOC.I'd buy a second unit instead, then exchange the inferior unit since the first 1 might end up being better. Maybe the retailer can be asked to hold on to the first one. I find 2 frame or large hz differences to be obvious while smaller amounts (1 frame @ 60vs vs. no lag) require witch hunting testing methodology for me to feel.
My AOC had the same extra amount of glow in the bottom left, but the right side exhibited less glow than normal...confusing. The Acer S236HL (6 bit+FRC AH-IPS) was glow free up to sub 15cm distances, but not completely glow free like my Qnix.
I really hope so.That sure is bright !
Still, do we have a King of the 60Hz 1440 IPS monitors here ?
I generally calibrate everything to 120 cd/m2 because I was under the impression that it's the industry standard, but overall it's more than fine for dark room use. My room lighting is basically 4 Philips Hue bulbs and a Philips Hue bloom lamp set to various colors (often a dim red at night) and I certainly have no issues with eye-strain. My testing/calibration is done with all of my lights set to 6500k @ 550 lumens a light.Glad you got a good unit at last !
Are 120 cd/m2 too much ? O still okay to work hours in a rather dark room ?
I'll have to check this tomorrow as I'm about to head to bed. I also may have to think of a way to test this as I don't believe PS3 allows 4:3 resolutions over HDMI. I have a feeling it does pillarbox appropriately, but we'll see tomorrow.Another question you may find strange but it is a rather important thing to me; is the monitor able to display a proper 4:3 resolution ? (pillarboxed; with big black bars on the sides), and I mean by itself, not controlled by a computer gfx.
(Resolutions like 640x480 and 720x480 in 4:3 aspect, through the HDMI input. Yes no kidding ^^)
Talked about it a little in my original post, but the interpolation quality is great. I still say it's equal to the EV2736W, which had fantastic interpolation thanks to it's OSD smoothing function. The LG lacks a similar function, but doesn't require it as it looks all around great; you quite literally won't notice any difference from this and a 1080p display. I think the OSD also allows for 1:1 pixel mapping, but I can't recall and will have to check tomorrow as I'm typing this via my laptop in bed.And if it is how is the scaling/interpolation quality ?
Good news!Thanks in advance!
The 4:3 thing is a bit of strange request and it's no problem if you can't get any device to output this, I am one of the few who still uses quite old video hardwares (passed through transcoders/converters) besides the normal PC use. ^^
I unfortunately don't have any way of testing input lag, so all I can go on is my subjective feeling. The only fast paced games I play are rhythm games (Osu, Beatmania, Stepmania, etc.) and I honestly find the LG to be much more suited for that purpose over the AOC and the EV2736W. It could be placebo, it could be the monitor lining up with lag offsets (which I never adjust) better, but it definitely feels faster, and a lot more enjoyable to play on over the AOC and EV2736W. I can surely say it's very close, if not the same, to playing on my EV2336W, which is also delay-free.Nikyo, thanks for taking the time to post here and shed some light on this monitor. I've been looking for a 1440p monitor for a while now and was set on buying the AOC's Q2770PQU until I came across this thread.
I don't suppose you have any means of verifying the input lag of this monitor? How does its responsiveness compare to the AOC's? Do you think the LG is worth extra $90 (at least that's the price difference here)?
Glad to hear that you're enjoying it.I just bought this monitor based on NCX's #1 Rating and Nikyo's review. I'm lovin it! I got lucky and got a good one the first time from BH. Hopefully I'm lucky on my 2nd one I'm about to order.
No problem!Thank you very much Nikyo !
OMG this monitor is the BEST. *drool*
I think people who don't read this thread or NCX's posts haven't realized yet lol
@badselection: the input lag measured by playerwares is 6.8ms. YES.
Check the link posted by NCX.
Glad I could help you make a decision.@Richard Jones
I did see the review, but I don't know anything about this website or how reliable its measurements are. That's why I asked.
I'll be purchasing the LG tomorrow. Thanks for making the decision easier.
Thanks!@Nikyo September 2014 from BHVideo
Cool price, but Newegg doesn't exactly have the best return policy. B&H I've returned/exchanged upwards of 7 monitors now with no issues, so I'd stick with them.
Gave it a shot, had no luck. None of the other multi-input 1440p monitors can overclock, though; I can't say I was expecting it to.I have a question to the owners of this monitor, is it overclockable beyond 60hz?
I'm asking this because in my experience quite a few LG monitors can run up to 75hz (with the right timings like CVT reduced blanking) without any frameskipping, but will display an out of range message above that, e.g 76hz.
They have an excellent no-hassle return/exchange policy and excellent customer service; highly recommended.How is the return and exchange with B&H?
It'll display full resolution via DVI-D, not HDMI.Does it display full resolution over HDMI or DVI-D?
I don't own/play any FPS games so I'm unfortunately unable to test that. I also haven't used a display above 60hz in like a decade.@Nikyo
Have you tried playing FPS games on it like Battlefield or Counter Strike?
I'm unsure if this LG will look good on 60hz, though I don't really have many options.
Overclockable Korean monitors are out of my comfort zone and 144hz TN panels might not suit my digital art hobby.
How bad is the tearing without vsync and how bad is the input lag with vsync enabled, in your opinion, compared to other IPS or TN screens? I've used several monitors and while they're all 60hz, the smoothness/snappiness feel different.
Do you think this monitor is currently the best 27" 1440p non-TN monitor out there regarding backlight bleeding, color accuracy, input lag, response time and all the other features?
Your pictures are fine, but you need to take more in order to get ones without what appears to be reverse ghosting which is caused by the camera.Disclaimer: I had never used a DSLR in my life prior to this moment.
You can probably sell your EV2736W for a small profit if it is glow free, especially since they no longer use glow free panels according to Simon from TFT Central (I asked him to asked Eizo about the different panels since they ignore me). If it is glow free I doubt you will like a non-glow free panel though. I can't stand non-glossy+non-glow free panels anymore.Rats, I'm past my return window on my EV2736W with B&H.
If you're only a few days over, try emailing customer support and they may make an exception for the holiday season.Rats, I'm past my return window on my EV2736W with B&H. I play almost exclusively FPS games so a delay-free 27" IPS monitor is very attractive, though I'm not certain it's going to offer much of an advantage given the title I play (BF4, which has such spotty netcode that a frame of input lag seems insignificant). Regardless, thanks for all the analyses; should I come in to a situation where I need to replace my Eizo I will certainly consider this monitor.
Gotcha, I'll give that a go tomorrow; thanks for the input.Your pictures are fine, but you need to take more in order to get ones without what appears to be reverse ghosting which is caused by the camera.
It glows normally, it's just much less obnoxious and lacks the obvious left-corner glow. At 88 cm it's basically glow-free, but NCX says that's the distance to which majority of the monitors he's tested are glow free.Is this glow-free or just "less obnoxious" than the other multi-input 1440 IPS monitors available? I saw Nikyo mentioned it didn't have heavy left-corner glow like Eizo, AOC, etc.
You can if you want to waste your time Or we can link people to Playerwares pixel response time measurements for the LG and a similar monitor they tested like the U2713HM.Gotcha, I'll give that a go tomorrow; thanks for the input.
lol, pretty much. I took them mostly for fun; should I ever be put in a position where I need to provide more in depth information on something in the future, I want to be prepared.
