Liar. Get your stories straight & quit spreading lies because you had 1 bad display.


700D=nicer+clearer whites & light colours colours, no ghosting, clarity edge (glossy), but it is reflective & has 13ms of input lag as well as a purple colour tint which can't be remedied.

VG278HE=matte (no reflections, slight loss of white & light colour vibrancy, visible grain/sparkle effect), almost 0 input lag, smoother 144hz, bigger, more ergonomics features, better 3D. Not sure about the colour dominance, it looked too blue in Vega's pictures.

The ASUS model you're looking at is the 27" one. You'd want the VG236H.


You can tell what size they are because of the number in the name (27 and 23).

See the LCD terminology link in my signature. Also, you don't need to double post...you can quote more than one post at a time in a single response.

Here's the review of the Asus VG236H from CNET:

http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/asus-vg236h/4505-3174_7-34118037.html
Quote:
We tested the Asus VG236H through its DVI input, connected to a Windows Vista PC. The display posted a composite score of 83 on CNET Labs' DisplayMate-based performance tests, which is more than a few points lower than the Samsung PX2370's score of 97. The VG236H's most glaring problem is its color accuracy, particularly its propensity to coat the screen in a green tint. Depending on the preset used, the green tint diminished only slightly and could always be easily seen no matter which color temperature or skin tone setting used. However, by accessing the RGB values and adjusting the green to 85, we were able to diminish the amount of green tint onscreen to a point where it was not distracting. At that setting, the green was unobtrusive; however, you'll have to adjust the red to about 94 to keep white from having a pinkish look.

So basically the biggest problem with the Asus VG236H is its color quality. Who wants a monitor with crap color quality?

To make matters worse, the annoying green tint can not be fixed or else you'll end up with a pink tint instead.

kole208, just get the Samsung S23A700D. I own the Samsung S23A950 and it uses the same panel as the S23A700D and the color quality is amazing and the responsiveness is good. Yes it's excellent for gaming. The 12~13ms input lag is not noticeable at all. Don't listen to the people who say it's noticeable. It's not.

I could say that the LG IPS236V-PN is the best gaming monitor because it has an input lag of only 0.9ms. But it's clearly not. On a 1 on 1 fight between the LG IPS236V-PN and the Samsung S23A700D, the Samsung S23A700D is clearly better for gaming, despite it having 12~13ms input lag. Input lag means nothing for gaming unless you go over 20ms.

The Asus VG236H sucks. It coats the screen with a very annoying green/pink tint which wont go away no matter how much calibration you do.

Cnet says you can get rid of the green tint, but you will end up with a pink tint. Turning the red down fixes the issue, how hard is it to go into the menu and doe this? It isn't. This is on ONE unit, it does not apply to all.

Look at all of these positive VG236H reviews, most of which praise it's colours

The S23A700D has just as strong of a purple tint out of the box as the Asus does green, but there is no way to get rid of it on the Samsung.

is this true? i love a 700d but if it has a tint problem that cant be fixed maybe its not worth it, and if the asus has one that can be fixed then it would probably be better. i just here so many amazing things about the 700d.
