Definitely. As long as your minimum is decently over 60 it's worth it.

You're absolutely right. That is really strange... The VG248QE has some bizarre gamma curves going on and has a gamma that is far too low at 144Hz. Set it to 60Hz in Standard Mode and things become much richer and the gamma looks to be raised. I'll investigate this a bit more for the review. Honestly at 60Hz with a few colour channel adjustments in Standard Mode it doesn't look too far off my hardware-calibrated 144Hz profile. What the heck have ASUS done here? headscratch.gif

You know it. wink.gif

I have two more QE's inbound for de-matte'ing / de-bezeling to begin my 3x 120 Hz Lighboost zero motion blur portrait Surround, 4x SLI Titan geo-thermal cooled awesome-sauce project. wheee.gif

ROFL, this should be a add for cateract surgery. Seriously, that's what this looks like. You can't even compare this to wearing glasses cause it doesn't make things blurry, it simply washes all the 'life' out of the picture. I couldn't help but laugh at that photo.

Vega do you have a guide for doing this? How durable is the VG248QE polarizer too? Is it just like the other LCD you dissembled?

A little bit, but this is due to the change in refresh rate. It puts more strain on your eyes because you're using them more. It goes away after a few days. If you can't get used to it consider returning the panel. The same thing happens when you go to a higher refresh rate back on CRTs. You have more information to process and use your eyes more in order to do it.

Colors also change slightly. The gamma is completely off on the monitor and the monitor is too bright by default. I'm using a gamma of .75 and a brightness of 25. Check your display color properties to change the gamma.


I tried the ICM profiles from both Crazy and Syndra and it doesn't seem to change anything. Colors are still really washed out and the gamma is still all messed up. Are the profiles working or is something up with my computer?

Could be either, when you activate the profiles colours should immediately change.
I suggest running through Windows 7 Calibration Tool for a finishing touch.

I just don't understand why monitor manufactures don't come with both matte and glossy screens, they should allow a matte film that's removable for those that prefer a glossy screens! Let's see how many members can quote the same damn pictures over and over again without using spoilers!

Lol, the reason is probably that it provides small returns for too much effort. It is only recently that manufacturers are realising that some people do hate matte screens, but that number is still a minority. In general a matte screen is much more convenient to the unknowing masses and the makers see no reason to change anything.

There used to be more glossy TN's a few years ago (2007-2009). I remember seeing both matte and glossy versions of some LG's & Acer's, Dell offered a few popular glossy TN's (2208wfp, SP2309W) as did HP (2408, 2509B, 2511x [2011]).

It seemed like there was a resurgence when the 120hz displays started coming out (Asus VG236H, Samsung S2xA700D, 750D and 950D), hopefully Samsung will continue to offer glossy 1xxhz models. Since the matte coatings have been reduced on the new IPS monitors I wouldn't be to surprised if some new glossy & semi-glossy 144hz Alienware, LG and Acer models show up later this year.

That's unfortunate. I was hoping the colors would look just like any typical TN panel at 144hz.

Does anyone know of a high refresh panel that does not have a change in gamma levels when changing refresh rates?
