Do I have a bad Asus monitor?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So yeah, I've got an Asus VN247H. It's supposed to be 2ms G2G but there's something off about this monitor. I liked it at first, but then I started to notice the effect in the below videos. It's like stuff is doubling? trailing? blurring?

My brother has a cheap Samsung 24" monitor and it doesn't do this so I think there's something wrong with this monitor or it's a cheap panel? No idea.

Could any tech savvy person watch this in 1080p full screen? You have to enable full screen to experience the full effect, as that is basically how it appears on my screen when I play.

I saw the videos, and I'm not 100% sure what you are referring to, since YouTube videos are artifically limited to 30 frames per second, so that will interfere with the look. It may or may not be normal; but the YouTube looks normal, but it's not an accurate representation of what you are seeing, as the YouTube may look different-looking on two different monitor (play back the YouTube on your bother's monitor, and see if the YouTube looks smoother)

Some things to look at:

1. Motion blur can mask double-image effect. Slower-response monitors can hide stutters and half-framerate effects (e.g. 30fps versus 60fps will be far more subtle on a slow-response monitors). If your brother's cheap monitor is much slower pixel response, then the motion blur on your brother's monitor is hiding the judder/stutter effects.

2. Your game may be running at half framerate (e.g. 30fps at 60Hz). This will often result in increased jerkiness on a faster panel than on a slower panel, because the reduced motion blur makes the half-framerate effect to see.

3. You might be seeing PWM dimming artifacts. (LCD Motion Artifacts 101). Try raising your monitor's brightness to 100% and see if the motion "looks" different.

If it's the Trace Free Setting, try ASUS Trace Free 60. But I'm not sure if that's what you are describing.
