Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 80

Yes, I have both an Asus VG248QE and a Dell u3011.

The Dell has the advantage in, color range, color accuracy, uniformity, contrast, viewing angles, options, inputs, card reader/usb hub, and workspace (1600p has 99% more pixels than 1080p)
The Asus has pixel response time, input lag, light boost, 3D mode, up to 144hz and that's about it

The Asus with Lightboost is incredible, Head shots are too easy it seems with it on. But with Lightboost on, things appear dim and sometimes washed out. Just increasing brightness will not fix the problem as you require more gamma. There are ways around this, but sometimes requires knowledge of the game software or drivers. without lightboost, everything is too bright, of course you can lower the brightness but that seems to reduce some of the vibrancy. Darker games will benefit not using lightboost imo, but bright games will definitely benefit from using lightboost.

of course the two monitors have completely different markets and you can't really just say one is better period, the Asus is very good for gaming, and some light desktop/browsing work. a 30" screen is also very poor for gaming I've found because you can't have the entire screen in your focus while maintaining the ability to resolve each pixel, I would say at least 1/2 the screen is in your periphery with a 30", while you can maintain about 90% of a 24" screen in your focus.

of course the Dell is for everything the Asus is not, and for my usage the Asus is ONLY for gaming and the Dell for everything else.
If you have only used screens of size 1080p or less you will not understand what it is like to use a 1600p or even 1440p. even 2x 24" 1080p isn't the same as one massive 30" screen.
1080 pixels of screen height is very short compared to 1600/1440.

In the end if you want a SPECIALIZED product you will have to make sacrifices. Sports cars are not always best for every type of road, they are specialized vehicles. And the more specialized the sports car is the harsher the ride on public roads but better times on the track. Similarly the Asus VG248QE is very specialized for gaming. It is probably the best thing you can have for FPS type games which it was designed for. If you have another IPS/PVA/PLS panel you are using now, buy this one, and use both in dual monitor setup. use this one for gaming and the other one for everything else, you'll understand what I mean. If you require a monitor that looks the best (100%+ of sRGB gamut/almost no color error) and very low pixel response for gaming, there are other monitors e.g. VG23AH an IPS panel with 5ms response.

In closing, I love this monitor for gaming.

Dell u3011 cost almost 3x what VG248QE cost ..how can you compare the two ..,comparing IPS vs. TN ?
P.S. so far i'm very happy ,i'm still getting very good frames in BF3 with injector/single 570/all ultra around 90~130FPS and yes you have to calibrate this panel

That's why he said they can't be directly compared, both are for completely different purposes.

I miss IPS tbh.

Out of interest how have you calibrated it?

all manual ,it takes time but it's not that hard ,if i'm in desktop i just use theater mode for extra colors which you don't really need to be honest ,for gaming standard mode for extra hertz ,the windows calibration is a must



here desktop in standard

Luke that actually looks pretty good. What are your settings btw? Also, can you post an image with the colors purple and turquoise because those are the two colors I find that this monitor has trouble on. Thanks.

Standard mode for extra hertz?

Ah so the processing for other modes actually slows the monitor down, perhaps a touch more input lag?

I don't notice any lag using any of the modes and am I the only person who had to reduce the sharpness to 40 from 60 to get rid of the haziness along any edges?

@bebimbap (or anyone else that has both IPS and this)

I just built a new PC and I'm in the market for a new monitor. This is probably the most difficult decision of all my components (i3570k, with 7870xt gpu, for reference). I've been looking at the 23/2412 by dell, the Auria EQ276W, and the 25/2711x series by HP. I don't tend to play FPS (when I do it's on console). I play MMOs mostly, though I might get BF3 and a PC controller in the near future. Since you're using both varieties of monitors, where would you say I should head? Will the 144hz benefit me more than the color when it comes to my enjoyment of games like FFXIV:ARR, and WoW type games? Thanks for your help.

I noticed I have one stuck red pixel on black screen. Is that something I can return for through Amazon?

It just arrived today and so far I love it, I can see more clearer when playing FPS on my PS3...as for PC I haven't gotten around much but this monitor is bright!
Sadly no 1920x1200 only 1080...
