Monitor Suggestions:

Display Color Settings / Profile Installation Steps -

Brightness Settings: 32
Contrast Settings: 45

How to install / create a Display calibrated profile using Windows Color Management
Asus Default Profile ( ASUS_PG278_Windows_7_WHQL.zip 9k .zip file )

Windows 7 -
  1. Start
  2. Search Color Management
  3. Open Color Management
  4. Check the Use my settings box under Devices Tab
  5. Click Add
  6. Any downloaded Display Profile will be available in this window
  7. Select your profile of choice, click ok
  8. Now back in the Devices Tab window, select your profile, then select Set as Default Profile.
  9. Click Ok


Installation Complete

  1. Also if you want to create your own profile:
  2. Instead of under Devices tab go to the Advanced tab
  3. Select Calibrate Display and follow the setup wizard to create your own display profile.
  4. This new profile will also be select-able under devices tab once created following the same steps above starting at Step 5.



OD Settings:

TFT Central -

With OD now turned up to the maximum 'Extreme' setting you can see that the overall response times remained very similar to the 'Normal' setting with some minor improvement. We achieved an average 2.4ms G2G response time here although much larger overshoot was now present. The overdrive impulse is too aggressive in this mode and it is leading to far too much overshoot. In practice there is basically no change to responsiveness, but a noticeable dark trail is now present across many colour transitions. The normal mode seems optimum on this screen, and extreme should probably be avoided.


Enabling Gsync:
Credit - pr1me
GYSNC NO LONGER REQUIRES FULL SCREEN GAMING

Go to the Nvidia control panel > Manage 3D Settings > Global Settings > Scroll down to Vertical Sync and make sure G-Sync is selected.

Most of your games will use global setting and therefor will be using G-sync (you can still add your specific game and check the V-sync line to be sure G-sync is selected)


You can check G-sync is running by looking at the tiny LED light near the power button of the monitor
White = Normal
Yellow = ULMB
Green = 3D Vision
Red = G-Sync (It will show up red only when you're running a 3d game)
Orange = Stand by

Still wondering if I should return it to Fry's due to that pixel. It's only noticeable on a black background (shows blue) and when the monitor isn't in ULMB mode.

Other then that this monitor + freedom arm = lots of desk space!

Too bad I don't have a twitter account lol. Just like my Titan shirt I probably would never wear it outside the house tongue.gif.

Thats really up to you and how much is it going to bother you knowing that its there after having paid so much for it. My ocd in knowing that its there would make me exchange it which is why I preferred buying locally at frys and even bought the 3 year warranty for no hassle exchanges in case of current or future problems.
