Use Theater mode and it won't looked washed out. Also you don't need to set Trace Free all the way to 0. Just bumping it down to 80 will get rid of the ghosting.
I use Contrast 78, Saturation 70, Skin Tone Natural, Smart View OFF, Trace Free 80, Sharpness 45, ASCR ON

Those settings are for Theater mode. Also I am not sure why your monitor is not recognized. Mine shows up as VS248.

Edit: Here is a more detailed listing of my settings that I copied from another post of mine.

Splendid: Theater(This is the only mode I use)
Sharpness: 45
Trace Free: 80
ASCR: ON
Brightness: 90
Contrast: 78
Saturation: 70
Color Temp: User Mode with all colors maxed
Skin Tone: Natural
Smart View: Off

I have seen those ICC profile on the bestgamingmonitor.net site, but how do you use them? I know how to install them, but is that all you have to do to use them?

Hey man, it's actually really easy. Here's some instructions I found:

http://www.7tutorials.com/how-install-color-profile

Basically once you double click on the profile, it gets added to the list of profiles in Windows. Then you simply associate the profile with the monitor and set it as the default. It should be in those instructions.

I know this thread is slightly old but just picked up this monitor and love it. Needed some adjusing, but thanks to 78@pwnt4lif3 for the ICC profile. Made my monitor look way better.
I tried theater mode with your settings siryak and for outdoor stuff, looks great. For gaming it's not very good. Inside in dark areas or even in shadows you cannot see someone "hiding" at all. The "gaming" mode takes care of this perfectly. It has been a huge help for Skyrim or even BF3.

I agree that you could see dark areas better with game mode. That mode just looked too washed out for my liking.

I have never seen it at all in games.(Also on the VE series everybody else said the same thing) The only time I see it is when I grab a window and start dragging it around really fast. But to each their own. For me this monitor looks amazing enough for me to overlook this issue which I consider to be very minor.

Never have noticed any ghosting on my VE228H or my VE248H

The colors on the 21.5" (VE228H) are so nice, better than the 24"

On most Asus monitors, experiment with the "Trace Free" setting since that controls the aggressiveness of the overdrive. In general about 40, maybe 60, works best IMHO, if you want to reduce ghosting and not have noticeable reverse ghosting. I guess YMMV and it depends on the specific panel too, but I'm a bit surprised to see a recommendation for 80.

Some of the tests in PixPerAn can help you fine tune the settings.

And if you don't have a calibrator and just want to eyeball colors and monitor settings, check here.
