XB252Q Settings?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I know this monitor is relatively new but I was wondering if anybody has this monitor and has found some good settings for the color/gamma, brightness and AMA. Anything really would be useful, so far i'm loving this monitor and I want it to look as good as it possibly can be.

Use calibration of PG258Q is the same panel http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/asus_rog_swift_pg258q.htm#calibration

That's not how it works, even if they're using the same panel they're most definitely using different logic boards and because of that you cannot simply dial in the same OSD settings and have them be equal. If OP spent $500 on this monitor they can spend another $150 on a colorimeter.

That panel uses different values for the color than the Acer, the values start at 50 for me and they're at 100 on the Asus so I'm not sure how it would work out.

As much info gets thrown around about monitors around here and on the internet I figured it would be easier to ask around instead of spending more on a device ill use once then put away for a few years...it doesn't make sense to me.

It's probably the best looking Acer monitor they've made IMO. I love how they changed the red base to black, gives it more of a stealthy look. I didn't mind the red that they have on all of their other models but black goes more with a setup, especially if you have any RGB peripherals.

It's look better with black stand and much better than Asus PG258Q. I still waiting for availability in Poland.
TFT said this TN panel is one of the best TN panel, can you agree with this comment ? What is your opinion about colours ?

I have an XL2411Z as my secondary monitor(was my main for about a year) and I had to use an icc profile and adjust the colors for it to look decent. With the 252Q I haven't found much as far as any calibrated settings/colors but I just turned the brightness down by half and left the color temp on warm. There is a saturate setting so you dont have to adjust the Nvidia/AMD color settings which is pretty nice, I just bumped it to 125(100 is default) and it already looks better than my BenQ.

I've tried out a few other Predator monitors and I like them the most out of all the brands i've tried if that means anything Including ASUS.
