AG coatings can be removed.

Vega is currently in the process of investigating this option with quite a large scale project inbound.

Can anyone recommend me some of the best 120hz gaming monitors please. My budget limit is 500 bucks, though I guess I can maybe spend more but only if it's truly worth it. I'm currently using a 24inch and I like this size, though I'm open to anything really.

The Asus VG248QE or the BenQ XL2411T (probably the Asus since you are in the states)

It's because the panel they use is a. super fast and b. has no noticeable ghosting, which leads to absolutely miniscule motion blur, even when you don't use lightboost and all that.

Other panels, even glossy ones, don't have the same response time or smoothness from what I've seen.

First time replying on overlock.net. I have had this Asus monitor for a couple weeks now and it is amazing for gaming. Barely any motion blur and I haven't even tried the light boost trick. I Have a Asus pb278q Pls panel also but it sucks really bad for FPS games. Colors are amazing but so damn blurry. Anyways the vg248qe colors are horrible like everyone else says out of the box but after using my Spyder 4 elite to calibrate, the colors are the best you will see on any Tn panel. The gamma is spot on after calibration and the colors are very nice. I'm using this on a Evga 690 and its better then sex almost. Anyways I will share my calibration for this monitor if you guys need because colors suck major ass w/o proper settings. Spyder 4 creates a profile file and loads everything when windows starts, do I just find this file and share? I just bought this Spyder 4 so I have no idea how to share. The monitor itself is all default except brightness at 23 witch is 120 cadence or whatever. Thanks

Out of the box sucks indeed, though I happen to prefer this monitor in most games strangely enough.

Another thing Asus has the worst quality control. Spyder 4 elite maps luminance uniformity and on the vg248qe the upper left sector has 35% difference and other sectors around 20%. That is piss poor and all my prior Asus monitors have had same poor uniformity and a dead or stuck pixel every damn time. Besides the poor QC it's a nice gaming panel but maybe the Benq might be a safer buy if poor QC concerns you.

wasnt benq always the worst of all in terms of COLORS? biggrin.gif

My uniformity is actually pretty nice, at least compared to my previous monitors. Many variables effect such though.
post #679 of 2231
In my opinion all modern TN panels look basically the same after proper calibration. If you want amazing colors don't get a TN panel get a iPS or pls panel and put up with the motion blur tell oled monitors come out and we will have the best of all worlds. Basically the Benq vs Asus color quality battle is dumb because they both suck for colors and supposedly use the same panel. I just cant recommend Asus ATM because last 4 monitors from them all had poor uniformity and each had a stuck pixel or dead.mad.gif

Skylit did you use a professional tool to measure uniformity or just commenting on what you notice? Because even with these poor uniformity numbers I can't notice lol thumb.gif
