Ideally, I'd be watching movies and playing games at 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total. I gotta know whether I can get any or all of those goals done over one cable or if I'll need to buy more than one and switch sources based on what content I'm viewing (which I'm fine with--I'd rather do that every time than deal with lower rates). Can I get 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total with a DisplayPort 1.2 cable? Can I get 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total with a DP 1.2 to dual-link DVI?

Also, I checked monoprice to see if they had any DP 1.2 male-to-male cables, but all they had were white ones (I'd rather stick with my mostly black theme for my system). Know another place where I can get cables that will stay in line with the 1.2 spec that aren't like $40? I want to stay away from the mini version.

I've ordered a könig displayport cable (2.5m) for this monitor



In the pre release news of this monitor some websites mentioned 72Hz per eye when using 3D but this wasn't true, in 3D you will get 60Hz per eye.

Is there any stuff like this for asus vg278r? Thanks!

Can check http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm#the_database for a list of ICC profiles and settings to try.

So, I was thinking about order this monitor. I have an ASUS PB238Q on the way. However, I have been reading some things about PWM, backlight bleed and crosshatching. To be honest, I really do not know what is meant by crosshatching. Anyhow, I am wondering if I should return the PB238Q and order the VG248QE.

How is the picture, the color and the viewing angles? Are the colors really that bad on TN panels, compared to the IPS panels? How about gradient banding. That bugs me more than anything! I will be doing mostly gaming, some movies and minimal web development work (logo design, photo-editing, coding). The latter will only be when I stay home from work. Oh, I was reading somewhere about the VG248QE reeking havoc on SLI card temps. Has anyone ran into that problem?

I am having a really difficult time trying to decide which monitor to get.

Thank you in advance for all help and suggestions!

Unless you own a spectrometer and a colorimeter, I would not recommend buying this monitor. Only after a thorough ArgyllCMS Ultra calibration using i1Pro-profiled i1Display Pro colorimeter, could I come up with a decent enough result to consider using this monitor due to poor colors. It is actually incapable of producing neutral grays in lower gray levels (0-20% or so) and will always remain purple. It is the case for all of VG248QE monitors. I am barely living with it and only because I have a high quality TV for good color accuracy. So, unless you plan on having a G-Sync module, own a good spectrometer + colorimeter combo, already have a high quality display for casual and SP games, I would stay many miles away...

Using a icc profile I've been able to get things less washed out looking.

I love gaming on this monitor, but I suppose if you could get 144hz on a better looking panel, go for it.

I just got the 27 inch version of this monitor which is the VG278HE and my eyes are bleeding from the horribly horrendous colors this thing is throwing at me. It's unbelievable how bad this thing is when compared to my much cheaper acer monitor of the same size which has a VA panel. I admit, I do like the 144hz feature, it's really smooth but the colors are so god-awful, I feel like packing this crap back up and send it back whence it came. Overall panel quality is also not even close to my acer which has NO backlight unlike this asus crap that literally has it at every edge.
