Asus VE278Q Calibrations And Settings

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi I grabbed one of these a couple of days ago and have been messing with the settings. I cant find a calibration that I am happy with. Was hoping people that own this monitor can share there thoughts. I have looked on the net and only found a couple of settings people use.

Here is one example of what I am looking for.

It depends on what your goal is. The color modes are properly named for the type of use they are configured for. However, I have found that Standard and Game modes to be the two most useful. And sRGB is great if you're using a screen calibration tool, since its simply raw output from the monitor with no image processing being done. Standard mode has the best color balance without having any of the colors blown out. It also has the smoothest look. I recommend setting contrast down to 67 to keep the color tone neutral across the grayscale, and to keep whites from being blown out. Game mode is great for games with ASCR set on, so that the backlight auto adjusts. It has a little richer colors as well, so I recommend cutting them down to a saturation of 43 for the best balance without being blown out at all. Skin tone is best on natural. I like to have sharpness set to 40 for all modes to make things smoother and more CRT like, instead of so raw and jagged. It looks great, but you may like it best on the default settings. Then I have color temp set to user mode, with the levels set to the following (matching a calibrated 6500K home theater projector): R90, G76, B69. Hope that helps!

Yea the settings from prad are a little bright for me also. I use Brightness - 30 and Contrast - 75, then calibrate the colors with the huey.

ve278q is just accurate as colors, the deltaE is 2.4, u must set the brightness and contrast values.

My current settings (close to my old 24" BenQ "color look" when I compared side by side, but actually with a bit less red):

Standard
AI Light: Off
Brightness: 28
Contrast: 65
Color Temp: User R:100 G:98 B:90
Trace Free: 40

So far I'm liking this setup, but might tweak a bit more as time goes on.

I am using the settings posted on the Amazon review of this monitor. They definitely give the best blacks and shadow detail. I have tried many different settings and always come back to these.

Standard
Brightness: 30
Contrast: 67
Color Temp: User R:90 G:76 B:69
Trace Free: 40

Interesting, your settings definitely have a warmer look, more red, than I was even using but I think a bit too desaturated. This is probably even closer color wise to my older BenQ which had a "warmer" look to it. Even the default "warm" setting is a bit cooler and more saturated, not sure if this is too much or not. I'll keep on tweaking. Maybe an even 10 increase would give it a bit more saturation back. R:100, G:86, B:69. Brt:28, Con:67 but keep the overall warmer look.

I got my VE278Q a few days ago, Its fantastic, I am using it for some PC games, web browsing & my PS3. for my money the best settings are:

Game Mode
Brightness: 100
Contrast: 67
Saturation: 43
Color Temp: Normal
Skin Tone: Natural

Sharpness: 50
Trace Free: 40
ASCR: OFF
AI Light: OFF

Be sure to set your graphic card to use RGB 4:4:4 (Full RGB) Pixel Format.
Set a PS3 to Full RGB Range & SuperWhites on.

Tested with World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2 & BF3 for the PC.
Tales of Graces F, Final Fantasy XIII-2 & MGS4 for the PS3.

Colors are amazingly vivid, and everything looks both smooth and sharp.
