    Faint flicker, driving me crazy !

    hey there,

    just got this beast from my local PC-shop. Ofc i get a bad one!

    Anyone else experienced a faint flicker ? Like on this forum for example. Makes it hard for the eyes to concentrate and read the white
    text, on the black background. Feels like the entire image is flickering.

    I can really good see it when i view pictures, its like the picture has a faint flicker, barely noticeable, but still, it is there.

    anyone got a similar experience? Don't know if its in my head, but something is telling me, it is the monitor.

    Which beast?

    And if it flickers, it's not a beast! It's a defective monitor

    Hey man

    I'd suggest take it back to shop asap and they will probably switch it. There is not much to do other than pray that you get a non-defective.

    First one I got had dead pixel, deformed text and even 'hard to see' scratches.

    Second one I got is perfect so far, only I have a cold boot problem. Thankfully Amazon sent a new monitor in 1 day when I ticketed it. But that was possible in first 1 month..

    Hope your local shop can help.

    Prob is, is does not look that bad with the naked eye, but i still get a feeling that the picture is flicker-ish.
