    BenQ BL3201PT 4K monitor

    Reviving this thread to report that I am seeing image retention since a few months ago. The below photos were taken tonight with less than one hour between and as you can see it's retention of two different pages, first one is YouTube the other is a page with image galleries. It's noticeable on...

    4K monitor black screen during post over DP

    I can happily report that the 3 feet AmazonBasics cable seems to have solved the issue, maybe a bit too early to celebrate but so far after a few restarts the monitor showed picture every time. So maybe it is pin 20 on those non compliant cables creating issues. This cable is cheap and good...

    4K monitor black screen during post over DP

    Palit GTX 1070 JetStream, but the thing is that I experienced the same issue when I had a AMD card and I experienced the issue on all 4K monitors that I owned and that's 3 of them including this one. I have had different PCs during these years, with Z87 and Z107 chipset so it's also not anything...

    4K monitor black screen during post over DP

    OMG, the solution solution is found and it's so simple, just setting DDC/CI to OFF. I had it in front of me all these years, :facepalm:. Maybe this also solves the windows resizing problem in Windows when monitor is turned off and back on. Edit: Forget what I wrote, it doesn't work. After...

    4K monitor black screen during post over DP

    I have had a issue with all 4K monitors that I owned and it's driving me a bit nuts so I wanted to see if somebody has a solution. When I cold boot the PC the monitor shows picture during POST so I can enter the BIOS or see the boot menu. But 99% of the time when I restart PC the monitor does...

    Best 24" 4k (3840x2160) display? 5 alternative.

    He want's to use it as a "retina display" to get sharp nice looking text and he thinks that 24" inch is the best choice since 1080p displays are usually that size. Why not just go for 32", text will not look much less sharp then on a 24" at 200% scaling, and you get the choice of using 150%...

    Windows desktop switching resolution automatically when using TV as a monitor...

    Don't be silly. He can use 4K res with scaling on the desktop and have whatever resolution he wants in game if the game does not run smooth at 4K. Scaling makes the text large so he shall be able to see it even at distance. There is no reason at all to use 1080p for the desktop unless he has a...

    Windows desktop switching resolution automatically when using TV as a monitor...

    Why would you use 1080p res? Just set scaling to 200% and it will be like 1080p but text is large, sharp and nice looking.

    4K 60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 TV Database

    I only had it connected to the PC for 5 hours and during that time I did not notice any screen stutter. Didn't try 1080p @ 120Hz but I am also not sure what "faint transient background streaks" is, can you show some example? Gonna test CSGO next week at 120Hz and I will report if I notice any...

    4K 60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 TV Database

    No, as you can see I bought a 43XD8305 which is a EU only model, so not really 43X830C but it's similar.

    4K 60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 TV Database

    No no, this one is IPS, I would have noticed if it was VA. So far I am happy with it but I currently use it to watch TV cuz the picture quality is much better then my old TV, but I will maybe connect it to the PC again next week. I hope I don't start seeing any blobs on the screen.
