Compared to my U2711 I lost the nice colors and resolution, though in games it is night and day.

Truly hard to say which I like more for all around use and gaming, personally though BF3 is much better with the Asus monitor.

turned up my saturation and turned on smart view for gaming...... looks unreal

may have cooled some colours as a result and contrast adjusted to personal preference

I'll stick a $180 60hz TN for now, until they get some common sense and release an IPS 120hz with a descent Resolution. Doubt it'll be worth it though since it will most likely cost a fortune for a while. I just wish the Foris FS2333 wasn't impossible to buy outside of Japan. =/

Could someone who owns this monitor please share their EDID?

How to save your Monitor EDID:
- Get Monitor Asset Manager – http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm
- Install and Run the Monitor Asset Manager
- Click on the File menu and select "Create INF..."
- Name the file with your display model and upload it here.

Why would you need the EDID?
I thought creating an inf just creates a monitor driver.

Anyways, here it is. Had to change the extention to txt.

Are there any 120hz 27 inch that dont use led backlighting, gotta find a good non led before ppl stop making them alll together, the eyestrain the vg23ah gave me was obnoxious and I fear feeling that again.

The VG23AH uses PWM dimming which causes lots of people eyestrain and is perceived as flickering, the VG278HE does not, and there are no CCFL back-lit 27" 120hz displays.

Google (insert monitor) review before making a thread about it. Research (Google) before buying a monitor and then asking if it is good.

10 Bit Monitors: 99% are 8 bit+FRC and AMD Quadro or Nvidia Firepro gpu's are required to send+receive a true 10 bit signal. 10 bit consumer content (games, movies TV) does not exist.

So when lookign at monitors , pwm dimming is something I should look at then. Ya that monitor was great but it strained my eyes so fast and then I'd see lines lol. Now I know what caused the mess thanks a ton man.

I'm guessing that won't be something listed in specs? Is there a good site to find that out on assorted monitors ?

The VG278h uses PWM dimming at 360hz.
The VG278he I tested used PWM dimming at around the same rate. No eyestrain at 50% brightness but go lower and YMMV.

Every 120hz LED and almost every 60hz monitor uses PWM dimming. It's the easiest way to maintain colour temperature at different brightness levels. There are only a handful of non-PWM LED displays out there.

You may simply have issue with LED "white" backlights in general. This is certainly true for me. Even without PWM dimming I find LED backlights cause me issues. The typical LED backlight is actually blue with a yellow phosphorous coating to mimic white. A lot of blue still makes it through and this is what causes discomfort for many people.

I really do not understand people's hatred of 27in 1080p monitors at all. Will 1440p look better? OBVIOUSLY. But that doesn't mean a 27in @ 1080p looks bad.  Besides the better contrast on my 27in, I think Windows and games look better on this 27in. Are you people like 3in from your monitors or something?

 

Now, when it comes to this 144Hz vs 1440p, it depends what you want to do. Do you play FPSes mainly? Then you want the 144Hz. If you can get a 120Hz 1440p, obviously go with that, but from what I understand it's very hard to actually get a 120Hz 1440p. I personally would go with the 1440p, only because I do not need 144hz anymore.

 

For me if it comes down to a better looking 23in @ 1080p vs a good 27in @ 1080p, I'm going with the 27in. I ******* love how big this monitor is. It is much better than my smaller ASUS in every way, except tilting. The only reason I didn't get two 27in ones is because I figured I might as well get a monitor with displayport now. Plus I'll probably make it my LANing monitor.
