I got this about a week ago on offer. It is great, but one BIG issue anyone buying should be warned about is it is VERY BRIGHT! Since having it I feel like I am staring into lamp. It also is bad if you ever use a webcam or camera in general as it will wash your face out.

Even with the light off in my room this thing makes everything lit up.

Now you can lower it but I find it loses a lot of quality.

Just a warning. I am happy with it for gaming but for general use I use my old screen instead.

I think the main reason for this is that ULMB/lightboost at the highest setting dramatically reduces the brightness of the image on the screen. This means for the tech to work the overall brightness offered needs to be super high.

And it is worth it. Lightboost is fantastic at reducing blur. But I'm not sure you can have lightboost active while using highest refresh rate or with gsync active.

As for the quality of the image being degraded at lower brightness, I've got a similar display and have the brightness set at 0 in the on screen menu. However i've also tweaked the colour and a couple of other settings and have a fantastic looking display. I dont have the hardware to calibrate the display myself but borrowed from another.

It isn't as accurate as the ips it sits next to, but there isn't a huge difference once both are calibrated. In addition, the ips can't do 240hz, so each has its place.

I know many gamers seek out high brightness displays and that high brightness is a requirement when showing 3d content so that may also play a part. In fact I believe lightboost is a part of the Nvidia 3d offering so they go hand in hand. But it would be nice to have a greater range on the brightness slider.
Must be selling these off now, cause the 27 inch version was the exact same price last week from eBuyer.

Maybe using f.lux could help if you are using the monitor with a PC/Mac: hotukdeals.com/dea…165

Quite a lot of settings and options. It is free btw.

Can recommend f.lux as been using it for the last few years. However, for those on Win10 like myself, it now has a built in function which does the same thing. It's called Night Light for anyone not wanting another program to install.
