ASUS VS248H-P My Thoughts - Page 2

post #11 of 77
Well first impressions for me(just got two this afternoon) I LOVE how light they are..i can easily hold them with one hand and put the screws in easily(Wall mounting them wink.gif ) Sadly could only connect one to computer since the DVI cord is only 6ft long..new one should come in tomorrow! More to come later when i get everything back setup!

I am sending the VS24H-P back to newegg for two reasons. First, in gaming mode (or any mode that has the most vibrant picture i can get it to go) when a game screen goes darker, for instance going into a dimly lit dungeon, or hitting esc in eve online to go to options screen, the monitor dims and then shuts off. It's almost like it thinks the pc is going into sleep mode, and the monitor also goes into sleep. It's unacceptable to me, and I won't put too much effort into finding a solution because of reason two.
The monitor just doesn't compare to the VW246-h. Even before I put them side by side with the exact same background and the exact same viewing mode, I could tell it just didn't measure up. Side by side you really notice the differences, blues are no where near as blue, the reds from a torch look almost washed out on the VS (compared to the VW). All in all if I hadn't had a new VW246-H here in the house to compare it to, I probably wouldn't have had an issue with the picture.
It is easier on the eyes, playing games for a few hours straight would have given me a headache on a non LCD. I think that its the very reason it looks washed out that makes it easier on the eyes tho, the colors don't pop out at you and that probably causes less fatigue. All in all it's not a bad looking monitor, it just didn't make me say "wow, that's gorgeous" like the VW246-D did. 55 bucks to return it to newegg and get a VW, lesson learned.

Did you have Smart View turned on? Because for me I found that made the picture look washed out. I know one thing is for sure I definitely would not call this monitor anywhere close to washed out the way I have it set up. I haven't experienced your first issue, so I can't comment on that.

No, smart view is off. And like I said you can really only tell when comparing the two monitors. Especially side by side.

Good news guys! The ghosting issue can be fixed. Just turn trace free to 80 or below and the ghosting issue disappears.

I didn't have ghosting issues Siryak. Mine was just a choice of better picture quality.

Did you try calibrating the screens to get them to look the same or did you just compare the default settings right out of the box with each of them? Im really on the fence between the VS248h-P and the VW246-H and would really like any more info you could give me about these two monitors. I have to admit your post has steered me towards the VW246-H and I have aready placed an order for one from Amazon (but wont receive it untill Christmas), but the more I think about it the more Im starting to second guess my choice and think I should have gone with the VS248h-P since its such a newer model and I like the looks of it better. I know that newer does not always mean better and PQ is my top priority, so I may just be driving myself crazy for nothing, but you really do need to calibrate each screen before you can say which one looks better. Comparing the two monitors against each other right out of the box is pretty much usless. I just need someone to tell me that I made the right decision.

Thanks, Jeremy

I have the VS and couldn't be happier with it. I have not had a single issue. Looks great in person too.

You won't be unhappy with either, most likely. The VS looked good, and a little better after calibrating. The VW looked better, everything looked better on it. Enough so that I paid the restocking fee and went with a VW, the older model. Unless you JUST looked at the vw and then the vs, or had them side by side like I did, you probably wouldn't even know the difference. But if you look at the reviews of the VW you will see quite a few people who claim to be professional photographers that use very high def screens, and they say the VW is priced far below anything in its class.

I have the same monitor but i got lucky getting it cheap for a open box sale lol. However yes there was ghosting in browser mode so i had to turn down trace to zero and went into monitor menu by learning via youtube and turned off OverDrive OD button.

However the calibration for modes are very frustrating.

I know there are like 6 modes or 4 or whatever there is. Too lazy to look up and i use Standard mode but scenery looks awesome and vibrant bright and colors even for gaming but gaming mode looks so washed down.


Do any of you have settings we can adjust to get the right brightness? Contrast and more? What mode and perhaps all of them?

Can we get in a little more detail about the settings for color and the rest on this exact monitor? Glad this thread was made cuz i was about to make one!thumb.gif
