Bugger I purchased the F791 only to find it has problems with FreeSync flickers and that there is a newer model I didn't know about the J791 which apparently fixes this.

I don't know what setup reviewers have been using but changing from HDMI to DP got rid of my flicker. (which was present faintly on the desktop let alone what happened in game. It may not be the end of the world 🙂

Apparently using hdmi instead of dp may help this monitor but at least for now nvidia only supports freesync over dp I think.

It may just be a driver problem as far cry 5 is okay provided fps stay over 57 but civ vi is terrible even around 90fps not that it's a game that really needs freesync

I was seriously considering this despite the high chance of getting stung a 15% restocking fee but after trying a bunch of games today that worked great I think I will stick with it.

It's kinda weird the blacks are so much darker than the IPS but what were dark parts of games where it was hard to see are now rather bright with this display, I have tried playing with brightness and contrast and although I can darken it a bit it is at the expense of the color and vibrancy of the display.
Not really a criticism just something a bit different that I didn't expect although it seems a bit weird walking past someone in metro 2033 when you can see everything in clear detail yet somehow they cant see you.

I found the VA needed a lot of tweaking to get it looking right to my IPS trained eyes. I wouldn't mind doing a proper calibration of it. I don't know how those things deal with curved screens though. 

Also, user reviews are so bad with higher end stuff. The things people think they see because they are being super critical and looking closer than you ever would actually playing are amazing. Then they write a review bagging out that thing. I've found the same thing trying to buy headphones (although they're even worse as people's preference differ so much).

Tried using my calibrator apparently the screen was around 330 nit brightness with it set to 75% and the red was a little strong so I have turned it down to 120 nit 11% and toned down the red a little but otherwise it was very well calibrated and turning down the brightness hasn't made a huge difference to areas that should look dark but they are a bit better and bright areas are not so blinding, It is a bit duller in color but still looks great.

The old dell u2713 was running around 110 nit at ~20% but turning it down didn't really hurt the vibrancy as much, If anything the old IPS was a bit to dark in places you couldn't see anything without a torch\flashlight.

AMD Drops The Price Bomb on Radeon RX Vega 56 Graphics Card, Now Available For $279 US To Tackle NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

Hey Dasa.. what would you recommend for a large gaming monitor?

Really depends on what your after.

I find the ultrawide perfect for shooters but still too narrow for flying and too wide for strategy games like civ but they can always be run at a lower res or in a window.
4K is a bridge to far but with freesync 3440x1440 is surprisingly playable even with a 1070.

I think Samsung LC34J791 is probably worth the extra over the older model I picked up for $850
The curve on this Monitor is very strong maybe a little to much if it was just for desktop use but for gaming it is great.

27-32" 2560x1440 144Hz monitors are also good at ~$400-600 if you don't want to spend 1k on a ultrawide.
All the HDR models in this range seem to be fake HDR using the same old panels without localized dimming.

This is my first VA monitor and while it is a bit different to what I am use to I really like it.

This review could be worth a look

Very detailed monitor reviews here

That link appears to be broken mate.

My brother wants a new one; He's not happy with the build quality of his current monitor (loose fitting connections)

He looked at this LG one so I'm guessing that's the size/price he's after. I just built him a Ryzen 2600/RX580 late last year. So FreeSync would be a definite. He plays KOTOR 3 online and the assassins creed titles. They're already at a disadvantage so he's going to have to play them at a lower res as they don't play nice with AMD hardware. 

I just want to make sure he gets best bang for buck and monitors aren't really my forte.

Maybe this would suit but there is no reviews for it so hard to say if this exact model has any problems.

https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Monitors/25plus-inch/74750-32GK650F-B

For that kinda size and budget I would be looking at 2560x1440 144Hz monitors of which there is a lot out there with not much difference between them.

Thanks mate.. that looks like a good'n. I'll recommend this one to him.

i found the g-sync version reviewed by Jarrod Tech.

What's the tldr for people who can't video?

Before the nVidia 1660ti launch, AMD said reviewers could supposed buy Vega56s for $US 279 ... but it turns out to be it was a "super limited" release that was sold out already

The strangest thing happened today after sitting in front of my curved monitor for a few days I went to my parents and sat in front of one of my old 27" IPS screen which is flat only to find my eyes\brain made me think it was seriously curved but in the opposite direction like the old fish bowl crt monitors we use to use.

People used to get that affect going to the diamondyron/trinitron screens from those fish bowls.
