Im coming from a 59hz 40" TV with a generic brand. I think its going to be a huge jump for me haha. I saw the Samsung one but it was well over my budget ): looks nice though! The Asus one was probably the best one since it had the 3 year warranty, and i wasnt feeling confident dealing with BenQ (even if you could get that one warranty with it).... just been dealing with so many RMA's lately just wanted to play it safe. So far ASUS has been great to me for returns since i live so close to a warehouse so i went with that.

I did hear that the VG248 and VG278 had some sort of backlight bleed? Is that going to be noticable in dark maps like in Battlefield 3? Or any dark maps in general? I dont ever watch movies, and if i would i would watch it on my TV. Some people complained about a white bar on the bottom ?

I've got that monitor and you won't be sorry. No dead pixels (luck?) and no light bleeding. Mine is worth every penny of the $450. I would love to have (2) more for 3D Surround.

The Asus is $100 more expensive here in Australia. What's the price difference where you're from?

Doesnt it guarantee that there are no dead pixels on arrival? I think i saw that on a Linus tech tips video or something...thats why i was like i want this!!! haha. but really??? no light bleeding? Wow thats really good to hear! I thought ALL the monitors had the light bleed problem, do you think ASUS might have improved the design by now?

The fact that you said no light bleeding gets me really excited! I just ordered it off of amazon and i totally forgot weekend days dont count as business days.... ahhh i wish it would just come in the mail !!!

There's a guarantee but I think it's something like 3-5 (dead) pixels are allowed..... more than that and it can be considered defective and will be warranted. They spell it out on Asus website. Do you 3D game? This monitor rocks in all my games with Nvidia 3D vision glasses. thumb.gif

The colours are nice, doubly so since its glossy, but it suffers the other pitfalls of TN unfortunately. Gamma shift depending on viewing angles, low viewing angles anyway, worse reproduction of super dark or super bright scenes compared to IPS - not massive differences but enough to make someone who has used an IPS cringe

It looks lovely though!

Has slightly (like a frame or two) more input lag than the fastest TN monitors, but not something everyone will notice or care about.

I had two of them and despite loving certain aspects could not get past the screen bleed in both the 27" models I had. I actually had 3, I returned the first one right away, there was a patch in the lower right corner on the screen the was grey. Same with the other two although less pronounced. Also as much as I like the style of it, a HAS stand is simply far more usable.

The VG248QE, while has less LightBoost motion trailing artifacts, only has half the contrast ratio during LightBoost mode -- only ~500:1 or so, according to NCX' tests.

Tough choices. 24 vs 27 inches. And whether color quality is important, etc. And the very buggy 320.18 drivers, which need an upgrade. Unofficially, forum reports I monitor on about 10 to 20 discussion forums, show that:

Winners for LightBoost low crosstalk/minimum ghost (during LightBoost enabled mode):
VG248QE, XL2411T

Winners for LightBoost color quality:
XL2720T (320.18 drivers), with the VG278H a runner up (not HE).

(Note: I own both the XL2411T and the VG278H.)
One of the sites needs to do a LightBoost Comparision Test between 4 or 5 different monitors eventually.

All though I'm not sure how serious I should take this review but, it bashes xl2720t : http://youtu.be/VKnhLdhhftw

I was about to order the asus vg278hr but I honestly get so confounded and confused by all the different variations of what seems like it's basically the same monitors. Currently I'm using a 22" 2209wa, and I want/need 120hz, and proper blacks, and hopefully added to that the best colors possible as well, all wrapped in a nice size like 27", with built in 3d emitter preferred.

I was actually gonna ask you if the good color quality of xl2720t also applies to xl2420t, but then I changed my mind and want a 27" now instead. I don't rly know what too do anymore than to just throw out the question, what should I get ? is the xl2720t quality better than the vg278hr you think ?...except it sadly don't have the 3d emitter. (which offer some kind of advantage if going for some 3d gaming I suppose)

From reading this thread I got the impression that asus in general have poorer color quality, am I correct in that assumption ?

I am wondering if the xl2720t might be perfect (as in best choice) with the new drivers you mentioned, if only it had a 3d emitter as well...sigh.

P.s. after reading some more stuff over and over agian, it seems that vg278h is somewhat better even though it's apparently getting phased out by the newer HR...Am I on to something now maybe.
