Despite these flaws I am still pleased with the display, gaming in 4k 60fps is breath taking . The lines to me are rarely visible and are seen mostly during web browsing. I calibrated the display with a colorimeter and with the color temp set to Warm 2 it was very accurate out of the box only needing minor adjustment. The contrast on this display is excellent and in 4k on the glossy screen the image seems 3d dimensional. The scanning backilght is unfortunately tied to motion interpolation and when enable has noticeable input lag. Input lag on game mode is excellent, even more responsive than the U3011s it replaced.
Another nice thing is 1080p scales perfectly so its like the display has 2 native resolutions allow you to drop down for demanding games with decent image quality. Overall I am enjoying this set and from a pc gamer's perspective the IQ can't be beat.
thank you for the input! First I'd like to ask about the first bolded part above. Are you saying if you sit 4.5ft or closer
to the screen, that the viewing angle and gamma shift starts to become a problem? Is the set designed for you to sit at 5+ feet only?
Second bold part is what I figured. So in essence, to play a game in "game" mode, you have to turn off frame interpolation (120 Hz), and the 2000 Hz scanning backlight correct? So basically in game-mode, it's a regular 60 Hz LCD with no extra features? Removing the 120 Hz interpolation and the scanning backlight, I would assume the motion clarity is far worse and not any better than a normal 60 Hz computer monitor? I understand this is a large tradeoff to get low input lag, as that is the #1 killer in games.
You still find the set is worth $5,500 even with the lines? Thanks for any more input you can provide as I am seriously interested in purchasing this set. I bet the gloss 4K on this thing looks amazing.
