Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 70

post #691 of 2231
Ah, well I do agree with you there totally!

I don't think all TN are that bad, the glossy ones looks alright - problem being that some people value matte over glossy so we are left with half the TNs sucking completely, and the other half usually decent in terms of IQ alone.

I did but I'm afraid they got lost in the ether. redface.gif I know from user feedback that there is significant variation with the XL2411T, though, and that newer revisions have a very different colour balance. The blue channel in particular is much stronger now. I don't think any ICC profile done on mine would have be very useful for new buyers.

The colors pop and it gives the IPS monitors a run for the money, however it's not even close to being as fast as 120Hz monitors!

As Hamzatm said the glossy TN panels out there aren't too bad. Some of the models with slightly lighter matte surfaces and much better colour configuration (Samsung models in particular) are also fine.

As I've said in another thread, when it comes to 120Hz+ TN panels at the moment the problem is the lack of choice. The glossy Samsung models give a nice vibrant picture with excellent shade reproduction (slightly better than HP's glossy 60Hz models in fact). The BenQ and ASUS matte monitors lack this 'pop' to the image due to a combination of screen surface, more restrictive colour gamut and simply how they are set up 'out of the box'. It is possible to improve things with some tweaking on the OSD but you will never get that sort of vibrant lustre from the quite strong anti-glare matte surfaces. It's really nice to see recent IPS models making use of much lighter matte surfaces and it's high time we get some super-responsive TN panels following suit.

My VG278HE as well as my VG278H both came in boxes labelled VG278 only. The boxes had different specification on them though (144Hz on one, 120Hz on the other) which is how I told them apart.

Basically afaik model names on the boxes don't mean anything.

Hey guys I just bought this monitor and love it, colors arnt great but I'm getting close to making them somewhat decent. I installed the lightboost hack thing and I'm not satisfied with it does anyone know how I can rollback to 144hz? I tried uninstalling the monitor and reinstalling it under correct one and also reinstalling video card drivers but it's still stuck at 120hz. I want my 144 back frown.gif

This is why I have stuck with the 144hz.

Try going into display settings, and set it to 144Hz

If you uninstalled the drivers 144Hz should now be visible.
