Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 57

post #561 of 2224
My initial review when compared to my old panel - a 22" 1680x1050 Samsung 2233RZ @ 120hz. This is after a few hours of pub games.

Plays very similarly. A tiny bit smoother feeling, there's a very very minor discernible difference between the two. The 2233RZ is said to have 8-10ms input lag, I'm hoping this one has less and that's what I feel. It'll take at least 50hrs of play to see if my overage hitscan % changes at all, but by then I'm sure a real review will have measured it. I seriously hope it's 0-2ms or my hunt for a true CRT replacement will not have ended yet.

Colours are a little weird, black/white levels worse... however, my 2233RZ was calibrated at one point in time. This doesn't matter to me, I would buy an IPS/VA panel if I cared about that. If you buy this panel it's assumed you're a competitive gamer not concerned with picture quality.

Overall I'm quite pleased. Good monitor.

FWIW I play (more-so played) UT3/UT2004 very competitively.

If you have this monitor and you haven't tried 3D Vision, DO IT! I have a non-LB 3D Vision monitor, and 3D Vision 2 (LB) is SO much better. The immersion factor in 3D with LB is unbelievable.

After playing around with 120Hz LB and 144Hz, I've decided to stay at 144Hz. I do see the motion blur decrease especially when scrolling through text and such, but at the cost of colors being washed out and darkened I don't see it as worth it for me. Maybe LB in 2D is more for them OG CRT gamers out there.

I do intend to explore both and maybe I'll think of playing around with LB more. All I know is the monitor looks a lot better (to me) when LB is not used. Playing around with the Scenery Mode monitor setting (With adjusted brightness/contrast/sharpness) and Window 7's calibration program really makes the monitor look good. I've never messed with IPS before other than my Kindle Fire HD 8.9", so take that as my 2cents. I know I'd take 120Hz+ over 60Hz all day though.

All you have to do is calibrate it for LB mode. Pretty obvious. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I used the settings you posted and I wasn't happy with it. Might mess around with the settings a bit more though. 100% calibration is not important to me, it's the vibrant colors and accuracy that attracts me mixed with the smoothness that is 120Hz+ smile.gif

I could never use the word "vibrant" when it comes to colors on any matte TN panel, no matter what mode it is in. biggrin.gif

Yup, got my panel today. As others have stated, the colors out of the box are atrocious! It's like set to store scalding demo mode. After some playing around with the colors I evened things out pretty good. It's still too bright, but if I turn it down too much it adds a weird 'glow' to the back of the panel and the color saturation is terrible. Most LCD panels have gawd awfully bright panels IMO though. It's not even like good 'vibrant' bright. It's more like tasteless, gutt wrenching, eye searing, just want to have a higher brightness then the other manufacturer bright. Panels don't need to be ultra bright unless they're competing with other light sources; In this case it looks like this panel was meant to be used outside.

Using standard mode.
Brightness: 30
Contrast: 60
Color temps: all at 100
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 40 (although I may mess with this)

My display driver has it set to 6500k for color temperature.

Overall it's still too bright, but the colors are workable and I'm sure I'll get used to it after awhile. Performance is pretty good otherwise. I'm going from a L227WTG, which has zero input lag and 2ms response time so the only real big difference is the refresh rate.

My old panel was glossy so I'm quite disappointed with this matte. It's not terrible, but you can tell it's there. It's like looking through a pair of sunglasses that are always on. Interesting side note, my old panel was 1680x1050 and this is 1920x1080. This has more pixels, but I get higher FPS while playing games... even at 144hz. I don't fully understand what's up with that, but I imagine it has to do with games being optimized for 1920x1080.

I also miss my 16:10 aspect ratio. 16:9 is great for movies, but subpar for everyday computing experiences and gaming. 16:10 is the one true resolution.

Honestly all the things I could fault this monitor for Asus could've easily fixed. A 16:10 resolution, a better factory preset, and glossy (or a glossy model), that's pretty much it. How much would it cost them to buy a Spyder and calibrate it with those settings then ship them out? They have like seven presets, all as horrible as the one before it. Monitor manufacturers, not just Asus, have been doing this for years though. It's silly.

Criticism aside, two steps forward, one step back. It's going in the right direction, but they could still make this monitor better. Glossy, 16:10, Spyder calibrated colors.

Can someone tell me if I get two of these monitors VG248QE and I have two 1.1a displayport cords can I get these to run 120hz with those cords or do I need 1.2 cords ????
post #568 of 2224
Pretty sure there is no such thing as a DP 1.2 cord, unless someone made it up.
post #569 of 2224
There is display port 1.1a and display port 1.2 have been reading about it all night but I cant fined out if 1.1a will do 120HZ
post #570 of 2224
There is no such thing as different DP "speed" cables. Unless a particular cable is of really poor quality or you are going long distances, any will work. Question #2:
