Asus VG248QE or LG 27EA63V-P

post #1 of 123
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm wanting to get some feedback on the two monitors, does anyone have any feedback on either or both monitors?

My primary use is for gaming and am wanting to have a tri monitor setup.

Your thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated

Bump!

I vote Asus vg248qe (the one I own) for the following reasons:

- Size, 1080p will look sharper on a 24" screen than on a 27"
- Refresh rate, 144hz vs 120hz
- Supports LightBoost, no motion blur.
- Price, the vg248qe is $270 vs the $380 for the LG.

The LG probably has better colors and viewing angles since it's an IPS panel, so it all comes down to your needs.

They have the 27EA63V-P on sale at BestBuy $ 319.99. I've seen a few reviews on youtube: I'm going to go pick one up later this afternoon. I'll post up the results as soon as I have time to test it out. Also: I'm replacing a Samsung 245t (need a slightly larger monitor to fill in the cut out in my desk/wall unit) which is also IPS technology. Once you've had one you'll always: er.....eh, NEVER go back to TN film type monitors!!! -Davis

It's a tough call: I like the new LG: it's HUGE - its BRIGHT (I now have the brightness @ 40 and contrast @ 50 > still almost too bright)!

As "Arc0s" pointed out 1080p might look just a shade better on a 24". My 245T had slightly "crisper" look (not a lot but, enough for me to tell), I'm sure after a day (or so) I won't even notice the difference. however; gaming on the new 27EA63P-V is 100% KICK A$$ !!!

Here is a great video review of the Asus and it looks good but, if it weren't a side by side w/ my 245T I really couldn't call it?:

http://youtu.be/01C91O2CTpw

I still have not yet run my spyder III on it and I doubt you have one so, I'm trying to give my comments on the "out of the box" results.

Got questions > post up and I'll try answer.

Final thought at this point: The LG 27EA63P-V (At $319.00 > plus tax < less then $350 out the door) is worth every penny and If you intend to game on it there is no way you will be disappointed !!! -Davis thumb.gif

Tried to post up earlier but the site was busy; since, I've watched Star Trek (latest one on BluRay?) and there is almost ZERO motion blur > very impressed so far !

Hi wfor1pilot,

I am still in the market for this monitor and it is good to hear the monitor is very capable.

What gaming have you done on the monitor? I mainly play Crysis 3, Sleeping Dogs, Battlefield 3 etc with the odd car sim thrown in.

Did you have any issues with dead/stuck pixels? Any problems with backlight bleed?

Also, have you noticed a bug with the sharpness where when the monitor is turned off then on, it resets itself to 6? There is a thread in the display section of [H]ardforum.



Regards,

Briefly; last night (just to test it out) I ran Sniper Ghost Warrior (has lots of dark shadows > looks just a touch washed but, very good overall!), and Crysis 3 (also lots of dark shadows > looked a touch washed as well but, not bad) and finally, Sniper Elite V2 (plain out clear but, too bright).
Sniper Elite V2 was the one that made me decide to turn down the brightness to 40% and the Contrast to 50% (Out of the box they are set to 100% and 70%), after the change the colors were much more clear and vivid. I went back in and ran Ghost warrior and Cry 3 with the W/ the 40/50 settings and they looked STUNNING!!! I literally sat back in my chair and said "oh, hell yeah!"...

The colors are great; Vivid but, but still look Natural.

Best part about this monitor is the Whites are WHITE (as hell) and the Darks are (damn near) BLACK.

As far as light leak it's very - very little. I took some pictures using "checkemon 1.1": No dead / stuck pixels, colors vivid, clear and natural. Also: likely the lowest light leak I've ever seen!

I can't post the pictures here but, if you want to PM me I can send them to your email?

Not to take away from ASUS (have and have had lots of their products > "Huge shout out"!) but, I really think you should go w/ the LG. To be more specific this exact model: LG has others but, the 27EA63V-P is a winner thumb.gif

The only thing at this point is the lack of height adjustment; other then that, it's a solid 5/5 out of every category:
I came in and looked at it when I got home tonight and I really love the super small bezel style. This thing is a beauty to look at as well as use; yesterday I liked it, today I'm starting to Love it !

Hi,

I am definitely set on grabbing this monitor. Will be looking at picking one up end of this week (will grab another 2 depending how much I like the first!)

I'm surprised more people aren't reviewing this monitor, there are only 1 or 2 reviews on YouTube and other websites.

Do you notice any tearing in gameplay or cinematic cut scenes?

Have you done any calibration to the monitor besides contrast & brightness? What are your thoughts on the Spyder III calibration tool?
