ASUS VN247H-P a good monitor? - Page 9

I got the Ergotech 100-D16-B03 stand. This thing came out great! I'm just really pissed off that I didn't know about needing to use the displayport on my new Eyefinity card, instead of just HDMI for monitor #3. So I just ordered an adapter on Amazon.. guess I'll have only 2 monitors for a day =(.

Once my phone cooperates, I'll upload a video. I'll do another once all 3 monitors are running, of course. One thing I will say - GREAT monitors, but the stands they come with are exactly like in that other guy's video -- HORRIBLE. Thankfully I'm not using the factory stands.

I'm very impressed with these monitors, though.

Okay, here is a video. Close up of the bezels at the end.

Video coming in a day with all 3 on and such.. didn't want to post one until eyefinity is up and running wink.gif.

looks nice! biggrin.gif

If you could, could you please use a tape measure and tell me how tall all of that is? Measure how high the bottom of the monitor is off the ground, then how high it is from the botttom of the stand on the desk to the top of the monitors.


Thanks tongue.gif


What happened with your connections? Your gpu wasnt fully compatible without an adapter?

Sure, will do. I'll just show it in the better video I take tomorrow with all of the monitors on.

FYI, not just the monitors individually, but the entire triple monitor arm itself is actually height-adjustable. I could probably have the bottom of the monitors low enough to touch the desk, or could raise them up another 8 inches from where they are, if I wanted to.

Monitor => GPU:

HDMI => DVI (cable)
HDMI => DVI (cable)
HDMI => HDMI

Apparently using more than 2 monitors on an Eyefinity GPU requires using the Displayport, due to some wonky reason. An ACTIVE Displayport to DVI (or HDMI) adapter is needed, since I can't just connect my 3rd monitor to the Displayport directly. The computer detects the third monitor, but I can't enable it or extend my desktop to it. Very frustrating.

Once the adapter arrives from Amazon (tomorrow, Saturday delivery... going to be a long night tonight!), I can get the third monitor running, and join all 3 to an Eyefinity group. Whenever I am trading or just using the general computer, I want 3 monitors separated so windows have containers and such, instead of maximizing something and getting one big window across all 3 screens - but Eyefinity will be swell for gaming.

I tried BF3 on Ultra last night and it was very good... on the center monitor. Can't wait to try it on all 3!

These monitors are very crisp, and I've found theater mode to look the best, and use 50 for the sharpness setting. I'll go through that stuff in tomorrow's video, though.

I got mine for racing games, and oh boy is it fun! biggrin.gif

I could get that stand and cut the top of the bar off maybe?

I spent about $200 on various iRacing stuff, but haven't renewed in a year, or tried LFS lately. Maybe I'll take my wheel & pedals out and give it a shot... should be quite sick now! Do you play iRacing?

You could cut the top off, yeah, but I wouldn't recommend it. It's low enough where having the monitors really low shouldn't make it look too awkward. I actually want mine just a bit lower than they were in that video, so maybe I'll adjust them again.

I forgot you already have the monitors. You have 3, as well?

I am not sure, I saw it on greenlight and I got so incredibly happy I could not contain myself biggrin.gif

I just sold my xbox because I didnt want it anymore but I am a somewhat large forza fan, and assetto corsa looks just like forza and the graphics are stunning.

I did some research and it was supposed to come out in 2012 and it looks like they delayed it to Q1 2013 so I expect it to come out soon biggrin.gif
