ASUS "Splendid" MODES

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,
So I bought Asus VS208 monitor recently, and I was wondering is there any way to turn off "Splendid" modes?
I mean, can I just use my own settings, not the selected splendid profile, which can be only partially tweaked... O.o

You can shutoff the Spendid demo mode,,,in system setup...I think that's it.

Well, Splendid Demo Mode is shut off by default (in the monitor's settings); And it only shows demo of Splendid modes on a half of the screen, the second half stays default, and it seems nice, but it is not one of the splendid settings btw, just random nice calibrated picture mode.

'Splendid' modes are simply the name that ASUS gives to their monitor presets. It is not possible to disable them entirely. If you want the best control over important image adjustment options you should use the 'Standard' Splendid preset. The 'Splendid Demo Mode' simply shows the difference between an extreme Splendid preset with all the bells and whilstles (oversaturation, excessive sharpness, dodgy gamma) and a standard setup.

Ok, thank you thumb.gif
Also there's no drivers for ASUS monitors, I use my with default windows Generic PnP driver; Is it ok?

Yes that's fine. The monitor gets the important information it will need to work properly from on-board firmware and that is all read fine even with the Generic PnP driver.

It is also weird, that you cannot adjust "Sharpness" level, while using Standard "splendid" mode
