Asus VG278HE 144Hz (in stock) - Page 23

post #221 of 330
Just a quick update of my thoughts on this monitor. Playing BF3 was really nice, although about an hour in I had a dizzy spell. Not sure if it was just the size of the monitor or the refresh rate but hopefully my eyes and brain will adjust to it over time. I noticed microstuttering in some games which I didn't before but didn't see it on BF3.

The sound from the speakers is awful. It's a non issue for me as I'm not really going to use them but the sound is tinny and very poor. For youtube vids it might be ok but for music and films forget it. I've heard better sound from an old 14" black and white portable TV. I'd rather Asus ditch the speakers and bring the price down instead.

As I mentioned previously, the only real downfall of this is monitor is the backlight bleed. Mine is very bad. It's quite distracting at the moment, but I guess I will get used to it.

I've added a pic I took just now of some random film on TV (Nightmare on Elm Street 2010) - terrible btw, but please note this is on a compact camera. The backlight bleed isn't as bad as the pic makes out. It's certainly not as blue (90% white with a blue tint) as it shows and it does start to blend in with the rest of the picture. There's no backlight bleed on the top of the screen nor the right but there is on the left side, which the camera hasn't picked up.



edit: I'm still happy with the monitor and will keep it. My original plan was to ditch my U2410 and get a U3011 or a U3013 when it's released or a NEC PA301W and use that as my main monitor and use the VG278HE purely for gaming, but if Asus can sort the issues out with this monitor, I'd definitely consider getting 2 more instead of one 30".

24" 16:10 & 27" 16:9



I doubt it is a size issue. You probably just aren't used to the blazing reactivity & clarity of a low input lag, high hz display.

Try using 30-40 brightness, typically this gives 120-140cdm/2 brightness on Asus displays for good black levels for all environments. If that doesn't work exchange it, back-light bleeding is unacceptable on any display, though, regardless of price, pretty much anything that isn't a high end Eizo or Lacie can come with bleeding.

The 16:10 monitor looks just awful. It is unbelievable how some people still use it. In some way I can understand them because 5-6 years ago most monitors were 16:10 and it is expensive to upgrade to a 16:9 monitor.

But look on the pic tht you cant even have 2 webbrowser windows side by side using 16:10 because of lack of width.

The 16:9 monitor looks great though.

Please go lie down on on some train tracks, but make sure to donate the funds the 16:9 people pay you, along with your estate to Red Cross first.

Have you used an LED monitor before? PWM may well be the cause.

Yeah I had a laptop for a few months which was LED but I didn't use it much. I used to get the same sort of feeling when sitting too close to my 60" plasma when playing MW2 but with the Asus I felt slightly nauseous. I might push the monitor back and see if it helps.

You think I should give the korean 27 inches a try?

Would you say the difference is wery noticeable?

I own 23" IPS display, it has same panel as Dell U2311H which was a popular 23" IPS.
I can say that my S23A700D Samsung 23" 120hz TN is wery close to my 23" IPS display, when I carefuly compare images the IPS is better but not by alot.

Also I followed a review OSD calibration but basicaly the only thing changed is reduced Contrast/Brightness and blue at 42 (Standard is 50) there was some other stuff aswell regarding OSD calibration in the review.

I am curious to know this myself

IPS has very nice colors....but I'm so anxious to try this new 120hz madness....Never seen a 120hz in my life! LOL....I just hope the picture quality/colors can be at least decent enough against an IPS....or at least the 120hz+ smoothness can offset itself from IPS panels
