  1. So I had the A04 version of the Dell S2716DG monitor which I purchased years ago and it suffered severe color banding issues. I talked to Dell Support recently and they offered to send me a refurbished one as a replacement. My new monitor came in today and it looks brand new surprisingly, and the revision is A09 (August 2018) as well. I heard newer revisions drastically reduced color banding and upon testing it out, I noticed that color banding was in fact greatly reduced. The only problem I am seeing now is the viewing angle with the A09. For example, when I lower myself down even a centimeter and look upwards towards the monitor, I can see that the color on a white background (e.g. Google opened on a browser) changes to a slightly yellowish tint. When I tilt my head back up, the colors return back to a normal white. I still have my A04 with me that I must send back in place of my A09, but I tested it this on my A04 and it did not suffer from the viewing angle issue I am having with my A09 at all. No matter how much I lower myself downwards, the colors remain almost the same on my old A04 revision and there is no yellowish tint. Does anyone else experience this issue with the A09 revision? Is it possible I may have a bad monitor, or is this normal with A09 revisions? I'm only cautious because my A04 did not suffer from this at all, just severe color banding. Here is a video of the issue on the A09 revision: https://imgur.com/a/VaBxuah More videos: Comparison on A04 revision: https://imgur.com/a/aSS3mgQ (Yellow tint hardly noticeable when I'm tilting down) Comparison on A09 revision: https://imgur.com/a/GLLumy6 (Yellow tint very noticeable when I'm tilting down) As you can see, it is pretty bad since even the slightest tilt downwards causes this yellow tint on the A09 revision. Should I ask for another replacement?

    Second monitor doesn't feel "60hz"

    Thanks I didn't even think of that lol. So I ran a 60fps video and it looks smooth, like 60fps. Someimtes I feel like it dips down, idk if its the monitor not being able to hold 60fps or just the video. But it is definitely 60fps, maybe it's just normal. The only thing is that when I scroll in a we browser, just feels sluggish like 30hz.
  3. So I just setup my second monitor (Acer R420HY bidx), and whenever I switch to it, it doesn't really feel like its 60hz. My main monitor is a 144hz G-sync so I know it would feel more sluggish, but the second monitor feels like sometimes 30hz on the Desktop, especially when I'm scrolling in a web browser. I checked my Nvidia control panel and Windows dispay options and ensured it was set to 60hz. Is there anyway I can check the current Hz its running under? I tried the blur busters website but that stupid site never works, keeps giving me sync errors.
  4. Yeah I was thinking of doing that, just buying a wood piece and putting it on the ground with my PC on top of it. That will free up some space. I did find another desk for now to be able to use a second monitor, but I still end up having to turn my head about 45 degrees to look at it lol. My currenr setup just just gives me like no room, it's so frustrating.
  5. I have my own custom color settings set in Nvidia control panel but randomly when I restart/shutdown my computer, the color settings will reset. Sometimes they apply but other times they don't, it's so annoying. I have to open up NCP and select the "Use Nvidia settings" again under "Adjust desktop color settings." It didn't use to do this before, it just started happening a few weeks ago. I've pretty much tried everything I could think of. Solutions I've tried: Updating my GTX 1080Ti drivers/clean installing video drivers through DDU, updating Windows through Windows update. Going into color management and making sure my settings are correct there by following this guide (https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/7k8vxh/how_to_fix_nvida_control_panel_colors_resetting/) Going into Task Scheduler and tried disabling "Calibration Loader" and the triggers under "WindowsColorSystem" by following this guide (https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/7b0kpb/fix_for_windows_10_resetting_nvidia_color_profile/) Making sure that my Fast Startup option in Power Options is turned off and my color range in the Nvidia control panel is set to Full. Installing monitor drivers (Dell S2716DG 27' 1440p 144hz G-Sync). NCP still just randomly resets the color settings to default, making my screen bright and washed out. I'm running out of solutions and was wondering if anyone has suggestions or is also experiencing the same issue. I'm on Windows build 1809 by the way. Thanks.

  7. That's a nice looking setup! I would be happy to just put my PC on the floor, but my floor is carpet which is why I'm afraid of doing that. My case does have legs, but still just worried about the airflow.
  8. I honestly just don't know how to account for the huge amount of desk space my PC tower takes. Like I can't even fit any monitors with the current setup position as shown in my video.
  9. So I'm basically trying to go for a double/triple monitor setup, more with the triple monitor setup being my end goal. I was wondering if my desk (L desk) can even do a double/triple monitor setup. The main problem is that my PC case is a full tower behemoth and takes up a ton of room, so I don't think I can even add a second monitor. Here is a video of my current setup: https://imgur.com/a/y21kumI As you can see, I don't have much room to work with (ignore the Vizio TV as that will be removed, so just assume that I have free space in that area). For my options, I was thinking of either: 1) Purchasing a new desk that will fit triple monitors and my PC. 2) Buying a USB extension hub and a longer DisplayPort cable (to account for my short peripheral cables and monitor video cable) in order to allow myself to just move my PC to where my Vizio TV is in the video. But if I go with this option, I don't think I'll be able to add a third monitor, most likely just a second monitor at the most. Plus, my space will look messy as I will see a ton of cables coming out of the back of my PC due to it being pushed more forward along the L desk to account for the additional monitor. Any suggestions? Kind of stuck here.
  10. I actually changed my mind to this monitor: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-R240HY-bidx-23-8-Inch-Widescreen/dp/B0148NNKTC/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=1080p+60hz+ips&qid=1548201297&s=Electronics&sr=1-4 It looks great for the price.
  11. Is it really that bad? haha
  12. My main monitor for my gaming setup is a Dell S2716DG 1440p 144hz G-Sync TN monitor. I am looking to now get a second monitor to make my life easier, especially when I'm streaming and/or managing multiple windows. Would a 1080p 60hz IPS monitor work? If so, I was thinking if this one is any good: https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-GW2480-Monitor-Flicker-free-Speakers/dp/B072XCZSSW/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=1080p+60hz+ips&qid=1548197752&sr=8-2 As you can see, I don't want it to be expensive as it will be used as a second monitor. Thanks.
