Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 67

post #661 of 2231
Well the thing is playing games on this compare to my 700D is just much more fun... I am pretty sure after calibration the monitor would decent for a TN panel.

The only thing that really bugs me is the dark top(seems to be only at the left top)..
I wonder if everyone has the dark top or if I should try to exchange it, I saw some people have it but others dont?

What monitor would you guys recommend in terms of IQ/Price? How does this monitor compare to the Benq one?
It's the same panel and pretty much identical to the Benq 11t from what I hear. The difference is that the Asus is cheap in the US and the Benq is unavailable or super expensive, and the opposite in Europe.

Good for you!

Not sure if you're implying something, but like I said this is simply a typical TN matte panel in terms of IQ etc.

To those asking, the best lightboost monitors are the XL2411T and the VG248QE, in terms if image quality and price as well.

I have to say, playing on this monitor is so much better than my old monitor...Geez, its the single best upgrade I could have made to my set up. Seriously awesome. Thanks for all the tips regarding calibration and setting it up, not there yet but a work in progress you might say. Looking forward to more reviews and recommended settings.

Just to confirm. For me to enable LB in 2D(and enjoy almost zero motion blur) I need to have the 3D emittor thingy right?

Thanks. wink.gif I have seen some pretty terrible displays in the colour department and although I'm not braced for excellence I don't expect this will be all that appalling after some tweaking. If it stays looking like the XL2420T/11T in its FPS modes then something might be up. tongue.gif

I also hope to provide some downloadable ICC profiles based on a S4E calibration for both AMD and Nvidia users. Because games like to use their own gamma curves and some ignore or misinterpret ICC data I will only be testing the monitor's colour and contrast performance using the naked OSD settings. I know some people like to use ICC profiles for desktop viewing if the image isn't satisfying to them without, so these could help a bit with this one. Obviously these won't be perfect for everyone as each monitor is different. smile.gif

Should also get mine monday and have a S4E so should be interesting to see how they compare!

You don't need the 3D emitter thingy

Anyone can compare the AG coating on this or the new benq vs LG w2363D? That's the only thing holding me off currently. I can barely tolerate this LG anymore.
post #669 of 2231
It's very similar on all three. Identical to the BenQ XL2411T as it uses the same panel. This is certainly a shame given the alternative solutions employed on some VA and PLS models as well as newer IPS panels.

Thanks. Really shame then.
