I'm not sure how you live with even 30 brightness. It's just stabbing my retina's.

I have mine set at something like: (it's not in front of me, I'm at work)
Brightness: 14
Contrast: 15
Color temps: normal
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 60 or 80. 40 or lower caused trails and 100 is just obnoxiously high overdrive.

I'm pretty sure which "mode" you use changes nothing. They are just pre-sets. i.e, if you set Game Mode and Standard to the same settings, they will look the same.

I may buy a second panel and compare. I know I said I don't care (in the long run, I just want it to be good for gaming and I truly don't) but it's hard to believe the white/black levels are so much worse than my 2233RZ.

Too bright at a setting of 30?
Or bothered by PWM flicker?

If you're bothered by PWM: Try raising brightness to 100% and obtain a high quality neutral-density filter sheet to put in front of your monitor to darken the picture. It will stop the flickering completely. The filter has its disadvantages (e.g. glossy)

If you're bothered by brightness: It's worth noting that enabling LightBoost dramatically dims the picture, especially at the LightBoost 10% setting (via monitor OSD). It's much dimmer, and as a bonus, gives you 80%+ clearer motion than the regular 120 Hz or 144 Hz mode -- LightBoost eliminates motion blur and gives you the "CRT perfect motion" zero motion blur effect. The name is a misnomer for 2D gaming -- LightBoost is only "light boosted" during 3D due to synchronized backlight flashes through shutter glasses -- it actually dims the picture for 2D. For people who like CRT and hate bright pictures, you get the best of both worlds -- a dimmer picture and CRT-quality zero motion blur. (Though I personally prefer my LightBoost at 100%)

Yes. 30 being retina-stabbing is a slight exaggeration, but it would be painful to stare at for any length of time.

Last night I kept the brightness setting between 8 and 14. Honestly, even at 0 the actual brightness of the display is more than adequate (and my room is not dimly lit), but it washes out the rest of the picture too much and the contrast goes to hell. Does anyone else have a panel this bright? Perhaps something is off with mine and I should buy a second and compare? I don't know.

FWIW I would say brightness at 5 on this Asus compares to brightness at 30 on my Samsung 2233RZ.

As for LB, I will try that when and if I have an Nvidia GPU...

Does lightboost of 10%-100% have any difference? well besides brightness.

Smartview: off
Tracefree: 60 or 80. 40 or lower caused trails and 100 is just obnoxiously high overdrive.

My eyes are also very sensitive to bright light so I know what you mean.

I just set up my VG248QE and am not really happy with my adjustments. Now the white screen does not blind me, but the trade off is that it looks yellow.

I have the VG248QE set at:

Brightness: 25
Contrast: 25
Color temps: R:100, G:100, B:70
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 60

Why can I not set the Sharpness or Saturation? They are greyed out...

I am trying to get it to match the VG236H's beside it but no joy. Here's a couple pics... The grey background for my browser's pages seem to be washed out on the VG248QE.

The VG236H's are set at:

Brightness: 30
Contrast: 40 or 50 can't decide.
Color temps: R:100, G:100, B:85
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 60
Sharpness: 25
Saturation: 40

Crappy pic doesn't add much...
Edit: Picture taken is junk, took it out. Oh and I'm talking non-lightboost AMD frown.gif

Vega how does the matte film of XL2411t compare to VG248qe?

Are these displays equal in other aspects?

Screw it. Yolo.

Just bought off amazon for 262 w/ 1 day shipping. Used a $20 gift card I got for sending in a textbook.


Anyone interested in my 700D?

I literally just bought one from amazon w/ 1 day shipping as well lol. 6 were in stock when I first saw the page, then it went down to 5 right before I ordered. I'm guessing that's you?

Edit: YOLO
