About damn time. This monitor should have been released 3 months ago!! Asus is ALWAYS LATE with releasing their products! In this case, late is better than not at all. I am looking forward to buying this monitor :D

I would settle for a 1080p G Sync ready monitor :-/ Perfectly happy gaming at 1080p... I know you can get the upgrade for the ASUS, and it really doesn't look tough to do at all, but having one ready out of the box would be nice :-)

TN panel, yeah?

My Samsung SA950 27" is a TN panel, and it blows my Dell 3008WFP 30" IPS panel out of the water, in terms of color quality. The 120hz and response times are nice too :)

It's nice to see a picture that has a gradient when it really doesn't.

While I AM very interested in this monitor, it is NOT a 4K unit... I get migraines with <60Hz setups so I've always had to get 120Hz type rigs to avoid the flicker of 60Hz (FPS is a different issue, mine is the flicker). Right now running a 144Hz gaming ASUS rig but it's still 1080 only. I'd love a 1440 (not a 16:10 fan so no 1600's). Just don't advertise this as a 4K unit as it's not.

It has never been advertised as a 4K monitor....not sure where you are getting that from.

Initially the title of this article was "Is this the 4K monitor that you have been waiting for?" but they changed it.

Refresh rate has nothing to do with flicker on an LCD. Any flickering is typically the result of backlights using PWM (which turns it on and off rapidly) instead of a continuous decrease in brightness. http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/pulse_width_modulation.htm

It is possible though that the cycling of the backlight, especially with CCFLs, can interact with the lighting in the room such that it produces flicker.

My experience with monitor fatigue has to do with the no Bias light I use a Antec 6 bias light kit for the monitors I use for gaming. If I use a flat panel too much I get burning sometimes but then I just turn down the brightness. A lot of my sensitivity has to do with working under semi bright lights at work which just adds to a neurological disaster for some people. BenQ flicker free doesn't do anything more the thing I found out that helps the most is turning down (Digital Vibrance) in Nvidia settings by about 8-9 points I got my at 43 from 50 that helps alot with muting the screen down and making a plain netural color. and the color isn't really ruined. That is on top of monitor and Desktop settings in the low 20s teens.

Then I wonder why the workers at the clinic are grumpy because they use old VGA convergence connectors and flat panels from 2002 =) ouch =)

Yeah, that was my bad -- been playing with a few different 4K panels lately and had 4K on the brain.

I had my hopes up for a bit there... Guess I'll have to wait a while longer until I can buy a 4k panel with the right specs behind it...

So, is it 2560*1440 or is it 4k?

avatar

Paul_Lilly

It's 2560x1440 (WQHD), not 4K.

avatar

raiseyohands

Uh, this is actually a 2560x1440 resolution monitor, not 3840x2160.

Yeah, I was wondering why a 27" 4K would have such a low PPI.
