    Do you have G-Sync?
    Which one are you keeping?

    Where did you buy it locally? Which panel do you like better?

    So on these specs it shows the LG is faster but as Trance pointed out, it seems theres some reviews of laptops with these panels and the AUO seems to be faster. Interesting.

    Nice work I was trying to find the LG on panelook but couldn't.

    So the LG is rated at 5ms and the AUO at 7ms, interestingly all of Asus marketing mentions 3ms for their laptops that use the AUO (probably BS though), and as I showed before Notebookchecks tests show the AUO at 7ms and the LG at 13ms. So I guess I'd call it a wash lol.

    AUO also mentions 3ms in a press release back in Aug 2018.
    https://www.auo.com/en-global/New_Archive/detail/News_Archive_Product_180827

    "The 17.3-inch full HD narrow border gaming notebook PC has a mere 4mm border width, the world’s highest(*) frame rate of 144Hz, and could achieve as fast as 3 ms response time to reveal extraordinary image quality and motion image performance."

    I'm kind of leaning towards the AUO being the faster of the two.
    Kind of a bummer as it seems less common.
    Where are you located and when did you purchase yours?

    Are you adding the 32 gb to what you ordered or swapping out completely? I wouldn’t mix match ram so if adding I’d buy sticks from dell or 64 gb of all same brand Don’t really see value if swapping out completely as can’t overclock - would wait and see what mhz range they eventually open up if any


    I’d honestly love a true tweakable uefi bios like Asus mobos. Overclocking from desktop apps doesn’t feel right

    Yes gsync.. I’m keeping the AOU. I switched the whole assembly’s a little while ago from my original laptop to the replacement they just sent. Easy change, took like 20 minutes total switching them around between the 2.

    The colors and contrast are much better on the AOU compared to the LG as well.

    Where are you located and was this a system exchange when you got the AUO?

    While its awesome that you are providing color profiles...
    Having calibrated literally dozens of panels, each panel is unique and comes with different color characteristics and different max luminance.
    So, essentially the majority of the time your color profile does not benefit anyone else but your particular panel.
    I don't post this to criticize but more to inform the people that are using your profile. :)
