I'm not sure how much time each pixel spends in on vs. off state on this monitor (is it 1/120 seconds on and 1/120 seconds off for 60Hz strobe, or a much shorter "on" time?), but it feels like this super-quick response time would mean that the display spends much more cumulative time in its black state during strobing than a CRT display would, making the strobing that much more visible.
Are image retention/panel wear and brightness the only reasons to not leave the OLED lit up for a longer time?
I'm imagining that with the speed of OLED's transition, the ideal image smoothness would be really high refresh (240Hz?) with the pixels lit almost constantly.
Well looks like you'll be waiting until 2020 for vega or whatever it's called. at least by then, you'll get a nice price drop on that dell.uggghhhhh... I want to pull the trigger on this monitor but I keep going back and forth on my decision... It will be a cascade upgrade because I will have to upgrade my GPU as well to be able to hit 4k at 60fps. My R9 Fury won't be able to hit 60fps at 4k without dialing all the detail back...
Did Dell pull the plug on this monitor?? It doesn't come up on their site under monitors if you filter through their monitor section under UltraSharp or 4k/8k. I did a google search and found a direct link to the Dell site for the UP3017Q and it is now listed for $3,305.06 but when I click 'Add to Cart' I get an error message saying this page failed to load or no longer exists. Can anyone else check and see if they are getting the same thing?
The 55" LG C7 is just too big for my desk and viewing distance. 32" to maaaaaybe 40" is as large as I want to go....
how long have you been using it?
and how many hr. per day?
and where the windows task bar is, in which the circle or the square is always there, do you see any image retention if you hide the bar?
How is it going with the oled? You still enjoy it? I am still wishing you didn't beat me out on that from B&H ;-) Hopefully Dell comes out with a second generation down the road or another manufacturer tries to take a shot with an oled panel...
insoc123, one more question. When you game, do you game with vsync on? I also which this monitor had some sort of adaptive sync like gync or freesync even if this is a 60 hz monitor. I will have to invest in a new graphics card to game at 4k at 60hz. I worry that i will get a lot of input lag with vsync on if my graphics card is not pumping out close to 60fps. I hate screen tearing so vsnyc on will be my only option with this monitor. I have a freesync monitor now and will really miss adaptive sync i am sure. However, the zero blacks are so enticing with this monitor... I like to play a lot of dark games like Outlast, RE7, space sims, etc.
I play most of my games with vsync off: I haven't notice any tearing or stuttering. I use two GTX 1080 in SLI. You have to be aware that no monitor is perfect (if someone knows one please tell me right now) and the "problem" these monitor has is that when you are with the FLICKER FREE option on, the rolling scan introduces double images that could be distracting while gaming. If you are not looking for them you'll probably get lost in the beautiful colors and perfect blacks but if you are looking for them you will definitely see them. It's more noticeable in some games. It's really a pro vs con situation because as I have said many times before, I haven't seen any other monitors with such an extraordinary rendition of colors and the glossy screen beautifully helps such colors even to pop out more.
That said, I just bought another monitor (Samsung 32" CHG70 1440p at 144hz) exclusively for playing games whenever I feel like not wanting to play with my OLED monitor. Working and doing regular stuff with my OLED monitor is such a joy and these monitor turns ordinary thing in outstanding ones, like seeing photos and watching videos. Playing games like ABZU is such a pleasure and I have even hooked up my Nintendo Switch an the colors of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe really shine out.
The third-party seller told me that they have none in stock. The listing on Amazon was in error.
