I just leave freesync off, i don't have a AMD GPU anyway, so matters not. Still a pretty nice display though, shame about the low refresh problem. Some of us don't have $£1000+ to spend on a monitor, so we just get the scraps from the floor.
I'm playing classic atm and don't notice no smearing, i must have weird eyesight or summat.
Yeah, I think I'm keeping this monitor. Unusable FreeSync sucks, but nearly everything else about this monitor is better than my old one.
I especially like the adjustable stand, USB hub, and higher refresh rate.
LG does mitigate this somewhat, they have two freesync options in the monitor menu, so if one is giving you flickering issues you just switch it over, no need to turn it off, and is game dependent, so I am guessing that is why they have 3 options, at least on the VA of theirs I did try, but again the pixel response times just broke the immersion for me, had no smearing, just didn't look right to my eyes.
Stick with IPS imo. or maybe i just i haven't seen a proper VA yet
its probably you just have a better VA panel. i only saw 2 in my entire life, so my experience is limited.
I love the deep black levels that VA has and honestly, I don't have any issues with the smearing on dark objects. I'll take that over IPS glow.
I have a 4K Dell Ultrasharp from 2018 (thrift store find) with an IPS panel, and its black levels are absolutely atrocious.
The S3422DWG handles dark objects much better (noticeably less smearing than my old monitor) and overall seems to be a much higher quality monitor.
