Are you and Paul actually friends, or is it like an Adam and Jamie from Mythbusters sort of relationship? (btw, you'd be Adam Savage)
Try swapping the cable.

Can't buy this monitor because it's out of stock in Europe.

I don't trust those 'g-sync capable' freesync screens.
I'm pretty happy with my AW3418DW, it was expensive but it support real G-sync and it works really well at 120Hz (OC).

The newest Windows update was having issues with certain monitors. FYI.

No HDR > HDR Brighter ain't better.
Is there any specific cord or plug in you need to use the 144hz feature on a monitor? Just asking, because I'm switching to pc soon
Karma. You shilled for that company, you and two other well known youtube tech guys. I commented on it when you did it too. What goes around comes around folks.

LG's "HDR" on their gaming panels is pretty terrible. My LG ultrawide has horrible "HDR" I think I'm gonna stay away from LG on my next one. Pretty ridiculous they send a defective display to a reviewer..

to be able to enable v sync on nvidia you have to have the monitor plugged into display port into the 1st port and v sync extended has to be turned on

I wish people would say if the manufacture sent it to them for free.
There's a big difference between getting something for free, and paying for it yourself.
This is literally every fucking "high end" monitor I swear to god. LG is generally at the top of the chart for QC in my books too. I've managed to buy two LG monitors and neither of them were defective, but so many high end monitor reviews are LITTERED with all manner of issues, dead pixels, flickering, weird artefacts etc. etc.

LG Panel/LG Monitor seems to be the most reliable combo, but there's no guarantee that another manufacturer would hold the same QC standards for LG panels that LG does...
