I got the monitor today and hooked it up quickly over lunch break.
On first glance it is a beauty, well built and has a flawless pixel status as well as excellent image quality. But I'm pampered now - after it replacing a 13-year old 17 inch monitor.
Minor issues include some smudges on the panel (as if someone cleaned it off with a dirty cloth) and a very vague dis-uniformity in brightness distribution. I'll tackle these issues tonight after I get back from work.
However, here is the real issue I have faced:
the OSD button either doesn't work or is very peculiar in how it works. I am talking about the top most button, which brings up the OSD menu (the 4-way thumbstick that is).
At first, whenever I pushed it, it kept bringing up the Light-in-motion menu (with the options "on" and "off"). However I cannot move up and down or select - only the back button works (pushing the thumbstick to the left when facing the monitor).
After uninstalling the driver and restarting the OSD-menu does come up now. However I am still not able to navigate the menu (pushing and moving the thumbstick up, down and right), only exiting works (moving the thumbstick to the left).
Pushing the turbo buttons also only brings up a menu showing me 60Hz. Cannot cycle through the other modes.
The other three buttons work fine (cancel, gameplus and power).
Of course I didn't have enough time to dwell into it any further over lunch break. So I guess it will be a busy evening tonight.
Has anyone else experienced similar issues?
I think I have read about the turbo button not working with someone else.
