This flickering is still happening and it doesn’t do it on all games, but I can notice the brightness levels changing quickly, well it looks like that anyway
What is happening and how can I resolve itAugust 3, 2017 at 3:56 pm #44291
I don’t feel anything needs to be added to my previous response, sorry. https://forum.pcmonitors.info/topic/1080p-144hz-monitor/page/8/#post-43757 It is a known issue with the technology but it shouldn’t happen at higher frame rates. If it does I’m still not sure what you can do about it, but it’s an issue that would have to be solved by the game developer for any titles it affects at higher frame rates. There is nothing you, as a user, can do about it.August 3, 2017 at 4:05 pm #44292
The game I’m playing is running well over 60FPS, is it freesync that’s doing it? So if I disable freesync the flicker should go awayAugust 3, 2017 at 4:09 pm #44293
It does it lots more when I have something up on my other monitor that isn’t 144HzAugust 3, 2017 at 4:25 pm #44294
I see, well if you have multiple monitors connected there could be a plethora of issues not related to FreeSync. If you disconnect the other display, what happens with respect to the flickering?August 13, 2017 at 12:25 pm #44355
Hi. Can anybody help me identify my monitor? I recently bought BenQ Zowie XL2720 monitor for gaming purposes. Label on the back says model: XL2720-B, type: XL2720. Manufactured date: October 2016. What is the difference between XL2720Z and XL2720B. Is this is same monitor?August 13, 2017 at 7:55 pm #44356
Yes. I’ve often seen odd model codes like that on BenQ monitors (and those from other manufacturers). It’s just a plain XL2720.August 14, 2017 at 5:34 am #44359
Thanks. I did strobing and VT tweak for XL2720Z and it worked on my model too, but i put in different value in vertical total parameter, so there is some minor differences between models i think.
Few words about XL2720:
– Bad colours by default. Need some serious tweaking and messing around with settings and ICC profiles. But it is possible to make it good enought for gaming purposes.
+ After additional tweaking of Blur Reduction(Reddit) it feels super good in games. Never had such smooth and crystal clear gaming experience ever.August 16, 2017 at 6:57 am #44365
Hi, I have watched/read your review on the Viewsonic XG2401 and know that it’s in the recommended section. I really want to know how this monitor compares to two other monitors that I’ve been looking at recently. The LG 24GM79G and the Iiyama G-Master GB2488HSU-B3. The specs are the same as the Viewsonic but I don’t like the bezel of that monitor. Do you know anything of the 2 monitors I’ve mentioned?August 16, 2017 at 7:03 am #44367
The LG 24GM77 is actually mentioned earlier on in this thread as a pretty decent alternative to the ViewSonic. Its successor, the 24GM79G, is less spectacular according to user feedback. Poor image quality out of the box that is uncorrectable via the OSD being the main complaint. As for the Iiyama GB2488HSU-B3, I’ve got no feedback to share on that one. No user reports, Iiyama aren’t forthcoming with review samples plus don’t supply to our main user base (US).August 26, 2017 at 9:37 am #44464
Couple of days ago I bought ViewSonic XG2401 manged to find someone to get me one 🙂
Somehow i cant get the colors right. Tied a lot of suggested color setting but all looked not sharp enough, colors blend to each other too much. Dark colors are not dark enough. I tried lowering brightness and black stabilization but that did not do the trick. Any suggestions?
These are some images that might help what i want to explain.August 26, 2017 at 9:47 am #44465
What GPU are you using? It’s very unlikely to be an issue, given that it’s a 144Hz monitor (which I assume you’re running it at), but double check the colour signal is correct – https://pcmonitors.info/articles/correcting-hdmi-colour-on-nvidia-and-amd-gpus/.
Unfortunately it looks like your monitor may have a gamma issue (central gamma too low). Even with the XG2401, there are some units that have this issue. That’s because the AU Optronics M240HW01 V80 has a lot of native gamma variation. Some are good, some not so much. It’s not ideal, but you could try lowering the gamma slider a bit in your graphics driver.August 26, 2017 at 12:02 pm #44466
I tried settings suggested on review.
(RGB)=(100,94,98) but white looked as very very light pink so i put it back to 100 all colors
Now i am running:
Contrast – 55
Brightness – 26
RGB – (100, 100, 100)
Black Stabilization lowered by one – 4
Rest of options are default.
I have got a bit darker better colors but still image on old monitor looks a lot more sharp and colors are more full – stronger.
Monitor next to it has more then 10 years.August 26, 2017 at 12:20 pm #44467
Yes, as noted on the article I linked to it applies to DP as well. At least on Nvidia systems. So double-check it is all correct.
What is your other monitor model, out of interest?August 28, 2017 at 5:20 pm #44472
My GPU is: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING X 6G
Old monitor is: ViewSonic VP171b
Tried suggested things from article and got a lot better colors. But still have feeling that on old monitor it looks better. On new one there is to much white and yellow. May be it is just nostalgia.
Changed resolution to same one from PC category to HD one in nVidia Control panel and colors from Limited to Full RGB. For some odd reason now max refresh rate is caped at 120Hz.August 28, 2017 at 5:50 pm #44473
Yeah; don’t fall into the trap of comparing a new monitor with an older uncalibrated reference. You’ve used that screen for a long time and I’m assuming it has never been calibrated properly, or not for a long time either way? You will have grown used to how things look on it, but you need to accept that it doesn’t necessarily look correct or more accurate than the ViewSonic XG2401.September 26, 2017 at 11:23 am #44865
I’m looking for 1080p 144hz monitor, I’ve been thinking of ViewSonic XG2401 but it doesn’t have Blur Reduction, is there any alternative?September 26, 2017 at 11:30 am #44870
Yes, and they are mentioned earlier on in this thread. What sort of games do you play and what frame rate would you get at 1920 x 1080? Are you sure you’ll actually make good use of a strobe backlight mode if the monitor offers one? Compared to the ViewSonic XG2401, you might have to make some compromises in other areas if you opt for a model with a strobe backlight function.September 26, 2017 at 2:43 pm #44873
At the moment i only play Battlefield 4, i no longer play anything else because of my current crap monitor (acer AL1714) and GPU (GTX 650 Ti Boost). i will be getting GTX 1070 which suppose to be enough for 144hz monitor. I haven’t tried any high refresh rate monitor nor any monitor with strobe backlight, the only thing i know about strobe backlight it makes the motion crystal clear which obvious on test ufo.September 26, 2017 at 3:10 pm #44874
Yes, motion blur is significantly reduced with a strobe backlight mode active. On the downwide, you really need to have the frame rate matching the refresh rate of the monitor consistently. You also need to endure flickering and there’s almost invariably obvious overshoot (inverse ghosting). It is a feature designed primarily for competitive gamers who are happy to reduce detail levels significantly in their games or only play ‘simple’ looking games like CSGO. Just so you’re aware, it doesn’t come without compromise…
I’d advise referring to a review of ours of a model with a strobe backlight mode so you’re aware of how these limitations play out in practice. Refer to the ULMB section of the AOC AG251FG review, for example.
