Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 101

post #1001 of 2231
Make sure to reset the display first. Mine had really poor contrast (400-700:1 depending on the preset) out of the box. Resetting the display made the contrast rise to around 1000:1 (in most modes) which helped improve things.

The gamma is set really low (washed out colors) by default so that the display comes "Black Equalized," out of the box. Blame BenQ for convincing so many people with their "pro gamer," marketing that washing out the colors so that noobs can see into areas the developers didn't intend them to is a good thing.

BF3 is definitely not what I had in mind.

CS 1.6 or CSS more like.

these are "gaming monitors" so when they sit down to develop such a thing what do you think they talk about?
pretty colors and prefect contrast?
or
lower color vibrance to acquire targets faster and low contrast to see in dark areas?

You have both? How does the VG278H compare to this? I would especially like know how the colors out of the box compare.

Does anyone know a way to permanently set the gamma to some range? Every time I play a game, it kicks the gamma back up to what it was at default even on exit and i have to reset it each time. Lightboost is also on

I couldn't fix the gamma levels by any means; I tried windows calibration, Nvidia control panel, there is no gamma control on the OSD. My old Samsung tn panel from 2007 looked better.

There are other people who have confirmed this. Although, I'm open to the idea this could be a manufacturing defect and there people who don't have this problem. So, it would great if we could have a consensus from people in this forum.

People have said that everything looks washed out because the monitor is calibrated to help gamers see things in dark areas better. That being said, doing a full reset of the monitor fixes that up right away. When using either user color (100x3) or Normal color, I found absolutely NO difference in color tone or gamma between 60hz and 144 hz. Setting saturation at 100 made the colors appear TOO bright, and setting it at 0 turned the monitor monochrome basically. So absolutely no problem here. Perhaps you didn't use the all reset to reset the monitor to factory defaults (and remove the washed out darks?)

The gamma settings are basically the RGB and saturation settings combined with brightness and contrast. And never use nightview mode, as that literally removes most of the blacks.

I always do a factory reset before reviewing a monitor. So that didn't help on my unit. It is possible that some units aren't affected by this in the same way though.

I believe Asus use the "e" to indicate the lack of emitter.

vg236h - included emitter
vg236he - no emitter
vg278h - built-in emitter
vg278he - no emitter

The "Q" in VG278QE probably relates to the new firmware which includes fancy on screen timers. That or the new stand.


Really?

The "E" is only on the 144hz models. That is the difference.

The VG236HE is not a 144Hz model. The 'E' does indeed seem to indicate lack of emitter.

vg236he is only 120Hz or is stated as such at retailers
