Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 64

post #631 of 2231
I picked up this monitor to try out the LightBoost in 2D "trick," and I'm really impressed with the motion clarity. It's very CRT-like. Better than plasma, if only due to the fact that it's 120hz with no motion blur instead of 60. That said, I haven't had a TN panel at home for a long time so I'm wondering if the amount of luminance variation I have is normal or not. I don't have any dead pixels, so I'd hate to swap it looking for better light uniformity if this is just the state of these low-price TN panels.

Here's a shot of a solid white screen, where you can see that about the top 1/3 to 1/4 of the screen is distinctly darker. This is independent of viewing angle (I'm aware of the gamma shift that occurs when you change the angle, however the top is always darker than the rest of the panel). The top left corner seems to be the worse. The effect is exaggerated somewhat by the camera on my phone, but it's very noticeable in games, especially in that upper left corner.



Basically I'm wondering what the other VG248QE's out there look like, and if this is within "spec" so to speak. I assume that if I had entire sections of the LED backlighting out it would be more pronounced, but I'm just surprised how bad the uniformity is (and it's strange that the dark area is a solid strip along the top). Anyone have any thoughts?

*edit: fix sideways image, derp.

Is it possible everything EXCEPT the dark area is backlight bleed?

Walrus, mine is darker on both top corners as well. It looks very similar to your picture.

I think you might be right. I just put a solid black screen up and the screen is a sort of soft blue/grey in all of the "bright" areas from that first picture, and closer to black in the "dark" areas. From what I've read about the VG278H* series I was definitely expecting some backlight bleed, it just seemed odd that there was this distinct "line" near the top where the change occurred. I grabbed a picture which shows the pattern pretty clearly, though it did emphasize the brightness a good bit beyond what I actually see:



That shot's actually taken with LB on, which emphasizes the effect a good bit (I'm guessing because it sets the backlight to "insanity" brightness). In the light I couldn't get a shot of it that wasn't obscured by that diffused reflected light you get off matte displays... I'll try to get a shot in normal mode once it gets darker.

So now I suppose my question becomes: Is this a normal amount of backlight bleed for this model, or would this be considered defective? I don't really want to get into the whole exchange thing if the majority of the units are similar, especially since I have zero stuck pixels.

We'd have to hear from more people to really get an impression, but I'm guessing this is probably more or less normal for the monitor. It just struck me as a potential defect because I've been using IPS displays for so long I'd assumed issues like this would have been largely sorted out by now.

I got the XL2411t it has same panel as this Asus to my understanding.

I have non-Lightboost and brightness is at 0 still it's too bright tongue.gif
I'm coming from a glossy display, I have a light behind me and it was actually joyful to play games.

Picture Mode= Standard
Brightness= 0
Contrast= 50
Gamma= Gamma 5
Color Temperature= User
Red= 100
Green= 96
Blue= 98

Well mine does not have any darkspots, well there is slight grey at left top corner but nothing that I can see unless having a completely white background and lookin at it.

when completely black image the right side of the display has white but again nothing that bothers me.

So far I have not noticed BLB when using it.

At a brightness of 0 you probably won't, unless the room is completely black. Brightness seems to control the backlight directly. If I turn mine down to 0 the bleed is definitely hard to detect, however I'm using the monitor in "LightBoost" mode for zero motion blur so I don't have an option to turn the backlight down. If you want to test for BLB directly, then turn the brightness up to something like 30-50 and put up a solid black image and see if you can spot backlight uniformity issues in a dark room.

I'm not specifically seeking this out, I noticed it while playing BF3 and decided to check out how bad it actually was. I'm just attempting to get some perspective on how bad mine is compared to the average unit.

I have the same thing on the corners, it is darker on top right and left.

Asus VG248QE vs Benq XL2420T in terms of input lag and quality?
Are there any other monitors in this price range that comes close to these two?

Also - how does the Lightboost in 2D work with this monitor?
