Asus VE249H - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Plenty of ghosting on my Asus VE247. It is kind of annoying, but I can live with it. Sucks that there is no fix, or firmware update though.

It was a problem on a past line up of ASUS monitors as well and they eventually got a firmware update, but I'm unsure of if/when that'll ever happen for the VE series. But there is a temporary fix that I posted on page 1.

Oh right. Now I remember you & the procedure disabling this feature off required.

It's definitely a pretty bad thing, but it wouldn't really be unbearable for most.. if you kept your PC on most of the time.

Haha, yeah I mean, the monitor's really did have a beautiful display. I'm back to using an older ACER 1680x1050 monitor right now until Dell gets their stock back in and it's really bad compared to the ASUS ones but yeah...I don't know. Hopefully they can fix it one day so people can enjoy a beautiful display at a budget price without a problem that would be easily fixable via a firmware update.

But, like siryak has said in multiple posts, the VS line seems to be an ideal choice being that you can diminish the problem without using the steps above that were required for the VE lineup.




It's there. You just haven't looked for it. Like in the second post on this thread, the problem is very minimal and can only be seen if you're looking for it but was a deal breaker for me personally as I like to be 100% satisfied with my investment and once I knew the problem was there it was hard for me to shrug it off.

Yes it worked! No more ghosting. Thanks, I have searched the web over and over for something on this.

I got 2x VE247 OB from Newegg $97 After stupid recycle free and taxes and I didn't even know there was a ghosting issue with them until today. If there is I can't even notice it.

Great Monitors I love them.

I love mine! Maybe you will never have a problem. Mine was fine for the first couple months.

Disabling the OD does stop the ghosting, but I would rather the ghosting while gaming. Tried to disable the OD in a game and did not like it at all.

Prad recommends setting Trace Free to 40 to prevent reverse ghosting. I have never noticed any ghosting on this monitor.

It is not really ghosting in the traditional sense of the word. It is more of a slight trail behind certain objects that are against a light color that you can see a bright area following behind them. The only time I can see it though is when I grab a web browser window and start dragging it around like crazy. So it is not a problem that 90% of people would notice if it wasn't pointed out to them. I found it because I was looking for it. Otherwise I would probably still be blissfully unaware. Luckily I was able to fix it on the VS monitors simply by turning down trace free down from 100 to 80.(Although I was still planning on keeping the monitor before I found this fix) Honestly I don't get why it is such a big deal when it is not visible under normal use. The absolute only time I have ever recreated it is when I was dragging a browser window around really fast. Who does that?
