So I just bought a new supposed 144hz screen. When I plugged it in, I literally couldn't tell any difference, but it reported that it was running at 144hz, so I thought nothing more of it.
I recently stumbled over some articles and posts describing the same problem I have, with the same screen.
If I do the tests at UFO test, there's a difference between 144hz and 72hz, but when I turn the screen on 120hz, it looks exactly the same as 60hz.
I have the AOC 2460pqu.
Is there really no visible difference? I ran a film with my new monitor and my old 60hz and I couldn't see any difference in smoothness.
Yes, I'm using the DVI-D cable.
Can't see any difference when I play.
If I do this test:
and set my screen to 120hz, the 120hz and 60hz UFO looks exactly the same in terms of smoothness, and if I set my screen to 144hz, the UFO looks exactly the same as the 60hz did.
Yeah, I believed I'd see that stuff too, but there's literally no difference between 60hz and 144hz on this monitor.
There's been lots of posts about this screen not showing 144hz on other forums, and I'll guess I'll have to do a RMA on it.
There's also the problem that, when I have a total black screen, there's some barely visible white half spheres showing.
It looks like this, but less visible.
So I just downloaded a new music album in FLAC format. When I played it back, I literally couldn't tell any difference, but it reported that it was uncompressed FLAC, so I thought nothing more of it.
I recently stumbled over some articles and posts describing the same problem I have, with the same file format
If I do the tests at UFO test, there's a difference between MP3 and FLAC, but when I play back normal music, FLAC sounds exactly the same as MP3.
I have the Neutral Milk Hotel album.
Is there really no audible difference? I ran another album with my new format and my old mp3s and I couldn't hear any difference in smoothness.
Yes, I'm using good headphones.
