Anyways, anandtech used the same method to measure the contrast on their Dell U2713, and it provided normal results that are nearly identical to every other reviews measurements, proving that, as I stated earlier the Nixeus can be compared. The average contrast ratio is 850:1, 500:1 is far below average. Junk is an appropriate word for something that has far below average performance in one of the most important areas of image quality.
Now, please leave this thread alone.
Make sure to change the Trace Free (controls the overdrive) from 60 to 40 or 20, other wise you may see ghosting in the form of bright and dark overshoot. The white & black squares coming off of the white & blue boxes=bright & dark overshoot. I'm not sure why Asus chose Trace Free 60 as the default setting when 20 & 40 are much better. None of my images turned out properly for the Trace Free 20 box test, but it does not overshoot at all, though, in the car test Trace Free 40 is slightly better. I recommend using Trace Free 20 for an almost completely ghosting free experience. The PB278Q is pretty much as good as a 60hz display gets once the Trace Free 20 & 40 settings are used.
