Mine is delivered Locutus, so its not even location based. Its quite a nice monitor really. Still, there's a few feature improvements that I'd like to see happen (and hopefully via firmware update). DSC is top of the list (and with it, a potentially higher OC, or at least being able to run 10 bit @ 144). Being able to sync the RGB lights to whats on the display (ala the Acer X38), being able to run HDR without backlight dimming (should be able to hit HDR 400) and improvements to Overdrive would all be welcome additions. That being said, that list sounds like the monitor is bad, its really really not, and the panel I got is almost perfect with no dead or bright pixels, and very minimal levels of backlight bleed. HDR it should be noted works really well on this panel as well (even if that drops you down to 120hz/10 bit if you want to achieve full gamut) Still, if anyone has an X38 they want to trade, I'm interested .
