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.

Should probably calibrate the monitor.

It's a known fact at least on the VG248QE colors out of the box are not good....

ICC profiles made for other monitor units are almost worthless, even if other units are the exact models or even if they were produced in the same batch. An ICC or a LUT needs to be created for each and every unit separately. The same applies to spectrometer profiling. Using ICC profiles from other units (from the internet) can actually reduce the accuracy and the quality of your monitor's image.

I suggest buying ColorMunki Display colorimeter for $175 or i1Display Pro for $250 on Amazon or wherever - they use identical hardware, but ColorMunki Displays is software locked, which is of no concern if you use the best free software. Then, you should rent ColorMunkiPhoto spectrometer for only $40 + $20 shipping from this place - http://www.lensrentals.com/rent/calibration/colormunki . This spectrometer is very accurate and will allow you to profile any not-so-accurate ColorMunki Display or i1Display Pro colorimeter, which you can then use to properly create a LUT/ICC for your monitor, using several software packages. I recommend using free HCFR and ArgyllCMS with dispcalGUI as they outperform their competitors like BasICColor 5 and CalMAN RGB in terms of accuracy (but not speed). They do the calibration for you, so there is a very limited amount of manual work that needs to be performed on your part.

FYI, ICC profiles are not fully applied to your games or even your desktop. They contain and apply something called "vcgt", or LUT (Look Up Table) which is a grayscale calibration data, consisting of 4 values for each of the 256 grayscale levels. They do not, however, apply any colorspace correction, unless they are used in specific software environments. The best method to enforce ICCs/LUTs in games is to use Monitor Calibration Wizard (NOT the CPKeeper...). However, many, if not most, games will only accept LUTs if they are running in a Windowed Borderless Mode, which either exists on its own in games' video settings, or can be forced using Windowed Borderless Gaming program found here - http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2675769

Only once you perform all of the above, will you actually be playing your games with decent video fidelity on this monitor. You will not regret making the purchases and going through the steps though.

Are there other non-US based VG248qe owners who are waiting for the DIY g-sync kit to become available?

So I just bought this monitor and just have a few questions.


-When I have a normal 60hz monitor hooked up for dual monitors for about an hour my Asus monitor no longer looks smooth like it should be. Why?

-Will having Lightboost on all the time cause any damage or shorten life span of monitor?

- Is this level of back light bleed acceptable? (Left is Asus, Right is LG) Honestly I thought it would be better in the dark over my LG. Though in actual colors and blacks the Asus wins.

Someone selling a VG248QE bezel?!?!?!?! I am looking for one, pm me if you are.

Thanks:thumb:
post #2109 of 2231
So I'm torn between some options here, Figured I'd pop in and ask you guys too...

Currently have a Dell 2410 IPS monitor, Its great, but I have been mulling the idea of getting either a bigger IPS screen (higher res) or a faster TN panel for gaming, I play a large mix of games, Lots of strategy, RPGs, shooters, etc... Basically I play ALL THE GAMES! The blur bugs me sometimes, I admit it, but frequently that annoyance goes away when i see how sharp and detailed something looks, or how some colorful thing pops out of my screen.

One option, and actually the first thing that I thought of was getting one of these Asus VG248QEs, but the complaints about IQ made me nervous, How ARE the colors and black level and etc, I can easily calibrate it (I have a Spyder) and I dont have a prejudice against TN panels (I have one in my laptop and think it looks fine.. my IPS is better of course.. but it still looks nice) But hey, I can easily drive most games maxed at over 60fps, so im sure to see the benefits here.

Option two was the Dell 2713HM or Asus PB278Q... But the complaints about input lag/motion blur/QC on the Dell and PWM on the Asus (I'm REALLY sensitive to the flickering of flourescent lights so I'm concerned this is a problem)scared me off of both of them...

And then theres option three.. the RoG Swift which is coming soon, Gives me ALL THE THINGS obviously, but comes at a very high cost, On top of that my current 770 is just not going to be able to do 1440p AND 60fps in most titles the way I play things, I crank all my IQ settings to maximum after all and I dont want to sacrifice that... So that meant i started considering getting a second 770, Which now means I'm looking at over a grand because well, Im pretty sure 50fps on a 60hz monitor looks exactly like 50fps on a 120hz one... Meaning a large reason why the Swift is so much more money (120hz) is completely wasted...

Of course I could just play stuff on the Swift at 50fps, but then am i really gaining anything over the Dell or PB278Q?

Suggestions? Advice? Lets hear it! biggrin.gif

As an owner of the Asus VG248QE, I can help clarify a few things. Basically, the worst thing about the image quality is at 144 Hz the colours become washed out a bit (not a problem at 60 Hz, though). For me, I don't need absolute perfection with colour accuracy so I make adjustments by eye. What I do at 144 Hz is just adjust the gamma slider - I just use the Nvidia control panel and move the gamma slider to about 0.69 and it looks very good again. It's very doubtful that's perfect colour, but it's certainly passable as a reasonably good looking image. That said, because it's a TN panel, the viewing angles and uniformity aren't going to be that great and there's not much that can be done about it. But, if you're sitting in front of the display and the time it's not a huge issue.

Besides that, it's a great display - no problems with dead pixels or any other funky issues on mine. And since you're using an Nvidia GPU, you can take advantage of the Lightboost hack. I've done this on my display, and there is very, very little motion blur - you can read scrolling text on the screen, for example, with no issues. It's very cool! thumb.gif If you're looking for something for fast-paced games, you can't beat this display. smile.gif
