Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 85

post #841 of 2231
Thats fine and all, but you never adressed my statement of why there arent more monitors available for purchase with glossy screens. I would fare a wager that 95%+ of all monitors sold today have some sort of matte finish. You are telling me this is entirely because of anti-glare, no other reason whatsoever?

Im not claiming anything here, im honestly curious. Because if that matte is there just for glare reduction at a loss of image quality you would surely see more glossy screens available for purchase today.

It is nothing more complex than practicality and the majority of users disliking reflections whilst also not truly understanding the benefits of glossy displays.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Many users hate reflections and in some environments matte is the only practical choice. It has been the norm since their inception for LCD monitors to have matte anti-glare surfaces.

You don't get fingerprints and obvious dust particles on your matte screens compared to glossy. It requires almost zero maintenance while always looking the same in any room or situation.

Glossy screens show dirtiness, grease and fingerprints very obviously, and requires more maintenance plus the reflections problem. Look at it from a manufacturers point of view, would you give customers better image quality but a monitor that takes effort to maintain and is heavily affected by reflections, or would you give them an extremely easy to use product that requires little maintenance and for most customers they won't know what image quality they are missing anyway?

Note how the world is moving towards a "dumb user" state of affairs.

Very well said and all valid points. It's the way it's always been done with LCDs and most users haven't been particularly outspoken about any desire for change. That contrasts with user complaints about how reflective some screens are - even those with anti-reflective coatings such as HP's 25" and 27" TNs with BrightView and Samsung's 3D models with Ultra Clear.

There have certainly been complaints about heavy matte surfaces such as that on the VG248QE, but it's mainly been within the community of colour professionals who are more critical about such things. That has resulted in a welcome shift towards much lighter matte screen surfaces for PLS and (AH) IPS panels and it would be great to see monitors following this trend more generally. There is also the greatest abundance of glossy options for slightly higher end monitors, particularly at 27 inches. Not a huge abundance by any means but it's to suit consumers who are actually more acutely aware of the glossy advantages.

This and people not taking the usually easy steps for proper light control in their environment. wink.gif

To me, decreasing every facet of image quality with a matte film is an unacceptable trade-off for not bothering with light control.

just got mine! the difference is inexplicable! 144hz i can't believe it, i really really simply could not believe the difference in tf2, CSGO, l4d2... any game that gets more than 144fps on my computer!!! I'm still having some difficulty with the colors, i havent gotten them to settings suitable to me yet, anyone wanna share the color settings that worked best for them? As far as gaming goes for this monitor, do not hesitate, its f***** awesome thumb.gif

I got this monitor a few days ago. I've noticed that when I switch from 60hz to 144hz, the colors become significantly brighter and faded. My eyes begin to hurt from looking at it. Did anyone else have this problem? I'm trying to decide if my monitor is defective or if all of them do this.
post #848 of 2231
Strange, you can readjust brightness and gamma on the monitor (or at least you can on my XL2411T), just check that the settings on the monitor OSD are the same at 60Hz and 144Hz?

Is this monitor still worth it if you can't reach 144fps? like something around 100-120..
post #850 of 2231
They are the exactly the same. That's what bothers me.
