i did not remove the protective plastic skin coating covering the screen and entire product as you can still see the tape on sides and showcase features tab on the right.

and second my flash was on and i forgot to turn it off.
That was indeed what I was basing the glossy screen from.

i always found glossy to bother me when gaming.
It doesn't bother me if it's glossy or matte per say (although I do hate glossy screens), I was just curious to know what that particular ASUS model had.

Yeah, that certainly is impressive if it can display all the squares of black and white.

Another test you can try is the Lagom viewing angle test (the grey screen with the "lagom" text), preferably in fullscreen (F11). Clearly, TN panels don't have a the best viewing angles, but some photos straight on, at an angle from the side as well as top and from the bottom would be nice to see. At similar angles to what you see here.

If you've really got the time and can be bothered, download PixPerAn and run the Streaky pictures test (F6). Leave the settings as they are (Tempo should be 16) and try to photograph the moving car with a high shutter speed. This test should give you an indication as to how fast the panel really is as well as how good the overdrive is.

A lot of professional review sites use that particular test to compare monitor response rates, as you can see here.

Again if you can be bothered, try the Readability test (F4) in PixPerAn and see how high you can go, most monitors seem to be about 7.

Thanks for all the effort of doing these tests so far. I'm not going to buy the monitor, but I am curious to know how good it is and I assume it'll help other prospective buyers too smile.gif

well dam, cant seem to find them again, but if you'd like i could always just post my settings. Im not sure how they will compare to a full calibration, but the guy i got them from had gone through a few calibration programs, and to me they look good.

Just a note, using someone else's settings (even settings from people who've used hardware calibrators) won't make your display perfectly calibrated. Every display, even of the same model, has small variances.

Of course, you can still try the settings out and see if they look OK to you.

And yes, this is very true. It also depends on each individual as not everyone sees things the same way. But these settings worked for me and may provide a good starting point.
