Edit: Not had any issues with flicker, I played with g-sync on for a bit and then decided to turn it off so I could get all 240hz :)

How do games feel when running at 240hz with freesync compared to using freesync? Do you notice any tearing or games feeling less smooth. Last time I gamed without freesync was on a 60hz screen so obviously going to a freesync screen made a huge difference.

With G-sync on I'm seeing a kind of flickering, but only in menu screens... its kind of like the blacks are flickering in terms of brightness. It doesn't happen during gameplay so maybe it's something to do with having a lower frame rate set in menus that's causing it? From a quick search online it looks like something high refresh rate OLEDs suffer with. Spent most of last night in an FPS with G-Sync on and it worked well. Think I'll only bother with G-sync for FPS games. For none-competitive games where I have graphics settings cranked up and FPS is much lower, I don't fancy having my refresh rate being down at 60 Hz... I personally don't notice tearing at all when playing these kind of games, but I'm sure it's there if you really looked for it.

Ugh, I've noticed I've got a dead subpixel... hadn't noticed it to date as it only shows up on certain colours like green and yellow (I noticed it watching football this afternoon). I've tried running the pixel refresher, image cleaning and no dice. It's quite near the edge of the screen so at least it's not in a really obvious place but now I know it's there it's going to bug me... I wouldn't care if it was on my TV but with this 27" I obviously sit much closer to the screen (at my desk) so it's quite obvious

It's still easily returnable until the end of Jan but I really like the monitor and there's no guarantee a replacement wouldn't also have a dead pixel/sub-pixel... shall I just live with it...?

It's definitely just a sub-pixel as the pixel works fine on all other colours, including white...

Na, just go through the faff and return it.

Replacement screen arrived today and sods law it also has a dead pixel, this time in the top right. Just going to stick with it as I'm really never going to notice it with it being where it is. Either I'm really unlucky or having at least one dead pixel appears normal for these panels...

If you go looking you'll always notice something. Don't let perfect get in the way of perfectly acceptable.

I found some DSE in one of the corners on my Oled TV when new on very low luminescent test slides and thats only because I went looking to se if I won the panel lottery. Undetectable in normal viewing. 4yrs on and TVs still going strong haven't thought about it since.
