So, after much contemplating and, going through tons of reviews, I finally settled for the ASUS VZ27AQ!! The main reasons for my decision are:
3. IPS and 1440p and 75Hz. After looking through benchmarks, I found that this would be the best fit for my GTX 1070. I really love playing with ALL EYECANDY features turned to max! And, from what I saw, there is no point buying a 144Hz monitor since it just doesn't make it beyond 75!!
Yep, am surprised as to how much of ghosting am able to notice in this monitor when compared to the 1ms 1080p one. The same videos, while vivid in color, look too ghosty (if thats a word!). It may take a while for my eyes to adjust to the 5ms response time I guess. However, as of now, it is a bit annoying and distracting.
DP not working
Not sure if this is a cable issue or, the DP port issue, however, the DP is not working and, currently using the HDMI port for viewing. Am able to set the 75z refresh rate though, so should be fine I guess?
Response time may be something you get use to. Esepecially if you are enjoying the other things about the monitor.
DP not working?
Here are some things to try
1. Shut the monitor off.
2. unplug it for 5 to 10 seconds. Another poster suggested wait 5 minutes *
3. plug it back in
4. wait 10 seconds
5. turn monitor back on
Check the DP cable and make sure it's connecting properly. If it can be pulled out too easy without effort like your monitor than its not connecting all the way. To release a DP cable it needs to be pressed upwards while in reverse motion.
Try a different DP cable.
Try your new monitor on a different computer
Tried this with no luck!
Checked this too and, everything was in place. I tried all three ports of the GTX 1070 and, the case was same. I do have a 290 in hand and, planning to try with the DP of that GPU once.
Do not have one in hand for trying this out! 😞
I am thinking it might be a cable issue. However, since its running fine on the HDMI cable, I am wondering if I need the DP for now? I am not sure if the Monitor can be OCed to beyond 75Hz either. Anyone with the same monitor have any luck in the OC, please do comment!!
Cheers and Thanks,
