    Mike thinks that you're saying the crack was a video screensaver type thing to mimic catastrophic damage.

    It was.....wasn't it?

    Now I'm really confused!

    It looked the monitor was dropped and destroyed. Then it looked like it was in perfect working order.

    And, ironically, there's an image of young Samuel Posten III sticking out his tongue at me right behind the monitor! :laugh: I feel punk'd!

    No, that was a drop shipped replacement. The first one really did arrive beat to shit like it was hit by a hand truck. The second one arrived intact. Buttttt.... It's going back. Ultimately I wasn't as happy as I should be, for a bunch of reasons.

    It's a bit washed out.
    I don't dig the curve.
    It sits too far forward
    HDR is not ready for primetime.

    Going with the ASUS PG27UQ instead and will wait for HDR in 2019.

    And that is my nephew Eddie. He does look a lot like me. The picture I took of him in 2012 with his tongue stuck out is my brand. That's a free canvas print I got when that company just started and wanted reviews.

    It's an awesome shot and bad on me for assuming it was you.

    Now I understand...

    In fact, I feel completely enlightened--on a number of fronts! :D
