Sorry to break the spell in this topic... but I'm seeing a guy that is legitimately trying to help you narrow down the issue to its core. Ignore? Really?
It IS possible that a monitor with new technology exhibits problems. And it IS useful to actually get that problem described as detailed as possible.
Is this really about crapping all over ACER, or do you want to have a good monitor? I mean... you could have refunded it by now. You've had four replacements, isn't that decent service?
In addition, I own a VA monitor too, and it IS true that especially darker hues have slower G2G transitions and it will cause much of said effect - minus the full screen flicker we've also seen, but it certainly looked different from your example of The DIvision 2. Overdrive can only do its best to mask that but it won't kill it completely. Guy has a legitimate point and 'should you know VA is slower'... no. But you've been told now.
Burn in will exhibit, 2 years is young for a display. Try 5 or 7. And to be fair with you, a display should easily last a good 10 years, the last few years becoming a bit more dim perhaps.
Even LG admits burn in is an issue they actively fight with algorithms etc. So...
The main caveat with a TV for PC use isn't the refresh rate. Its the latency. If you add interpolation from your TV that latency doubles.
I do fully agree on your 120hz statement. Going beyond is hitting diminishing returns hard.
OLED C9 has the lowest latency, better then most gaming monitors, the advertised "latency" on the box of every PC monitor is GtG and not actual latency, so PC monitors with 1 or 2 or 3ms on the box is just Overdrive gray to gray in unusable Extreme mode, the actual latency is much higher.
C9 has 13ms in Game mode, in 4K in 4K HDR in FHD in 1440p and it has 6ms in 1080p 120hz and 6ms in 1440 120hz [right now there is no way to test 4K 120hz since no GPU supports HDMI 2.1].
Most people dont plan to use PC monitor for 5 years, new stuff comes out, i never used a TV longer then 2 and this one OLED C6 used as monitor, now comes to 3 year
If you keep OLED power at 40 or 45 [below 50 the lower the better] the chance for Burn-in will be minimal, the lower the OLED light is the lower the chance, my game and game HDR preset are set to 100, but Photo preset that used for Windows use/web is set to 40, since the TV is huge its enough and my room is permanetly darkened i cant stand sunlight
