Text ghosting on new AOC CQ27G2U/BK ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A month ago i accidently smashed my MSI MAG271C, a VA, 1080p 144Hz display.

So i ordered the new AOC CQ27G2U curved 1440p, VA, 144hz display, which i got delivered 2 days ago. 

Its a pretty good budget display but i am experiencing some text ghosting while scrolling or moving windows with the mouse like shown in the video.

I tried capturing it via Shadowplay but ofcourse when you play it on a different display the problems do not occur. Here is a video i recorded using my phone.


(fyi i love total commander and i am willing to return display just to have this program look and work the way it should.) (Screen on the right is the AOC, Screen on the left is an old Samsung S24D340H


The "ghosting" that you see also occurs when nightlight is activated, it made it quite a bit worse. 


So my question is, is this fix-able in any shape or form? Or is it best to return the display and find a better one? If that is the best option, does anyone here have a recommendation?


Im sorry if this post is somewhat hard to understand. English is not my native language so please bare with me.

I think it's inverse ghosting, native to most VA panels, if not all.

I'm so used to it, that only noticed it when some large black dot was on light grey background.

On one monitor it ocurred more when the "overdrive" in monitor menu was on strong setting. But on my current one it's always there, but only visible in certain conditions.

... but I'm no expert

Thats normal ghosting. (inverse ghosting is a 'lighter' trailer as opposed to a darker one)


if the display has an overdrive setting, turn it on. otherwise u cant change the pixel response any other way.


VA panels have the slowest pixel response times on average, especially budget displays. if ur on a tight budget stick with TN or IPS panels if u want to avoid the majority of ghosting.


If ur interested at looking at proper reviews check out the following sites.

Thanks a bunch for replying. It helps a lot. I decided to return this display and save up for one with better capabilities. The link that @SolarNova posted will be coming in handy. 


Thanks again
