Wondering what is best tracefree setting with vg248qe right now im using 60 default is it better lower it or raise?
Also anyone know how make it turn on start up or do you need manually do it? Not big deal i turn my pc on and leave it on all day most time but would be nice.
Check this review:http://pcmonitors.info/reviews/asus-vg248qe
They set it to 80. (I've set mine to 80 long time ago, I think because of this review)

"TF0 and TF20 tell a fairly similar story to the other refresh rates. TF40 has a slightly more woven appearance compared to 120Hz but not as much as at 60Hz. TF60 is quite comparable to the corresponding snapshot at 120Hz, whilst TF80 gives a slight reduction in trailing. TF100 is, again, a mess. Don’t forget the vital importance of refresh rate. This is now 144Hz with the car moving extremely rapidly – there are 2.4 times as many frames crammed in each second as at 60Hz and 1.2 times as many as at 120Hz. The visible trailing is reduced further as a result and the snapshots become even less representative of what the eye sees. Also remember that these snapshots only look at a fairly limited range of pixel transitions. It’s important to look more broadly at how visible trailing actually is during a wide range of different pixel transitions, between different colours and at various speeds. It also shouldn’t escape your notice that obtrusive overdrive artifacts are only visible at TF100. It is good that ASUS gives such freedom to users with its Trace Free settings and that even at TF80 there are no nasty surprises in this test. slot everything together we fired up some games. This allowed us to look at pixel responses in a broad range of scenarios and assess the practical influence of the 144Hz refresh rate and very low input lag. For this testing we used a Trace Free setting of 80 as we felt that, overall, this provided the best pixel responsiveness. Trailing was reduced in some instances compared to TF60 without any particularly conspicuous overdrive artifacts being introduced."
Edit: My vg248qe automatically goes standby when there is no signal, power button is colored orange instead of blue when in standby. So you could just not power it down and use the auto standby. My windows automatically shuts down my monitor signal after 15 mins if I'm not using my pc, best to set something like that in energy settings in windows if your pc is on most of the time.
FYI: The ECO mode in monitor OSD is turned off and i'm using a displayport cable. Didn't test this with other cables.Edited by TiezZ BE - 1/8/14 at 12:49pm
