Alright monitor for every day computing.
on January 4, 2014
I wouldn't recommend this monitor for gaming. at 1080p at this size i don't notice muych of a difference than my 24 inch 1080p monitor BUT... if you have the money go for a dell ultrasharp 27 inch IPS. A couple things that are off with thia monitor:
Mine has one dead pixel, not big deal first time i ever had this issue.
The color adjustments are horrible in the menu. This was clearly designed for the every day user and not a professional editor or gamer, neither of which i am... seriously why only brightness, contrast, and rgb color adjustments? Anyways what i ended up doing on ym nvdia graphics card was setting the brightness and contrast at 100 and 100 and the RGB at 60/81/100
Then in the nvidia control panel i have the settings set at 45% brightness, 32 % contrast, gamma at .70 and then the digital brightness if you scroll down at 65% (added a lot of color)
I also have the icc profile for the VG24qe i had before this one from nvidia if you download it from asus website applied. It took me a few days to get the color all adjusted and it still isn't perfect. But viewing angles are alot better than my 144hz asus monitor. And that monitor was horrible at projected certain shades of color. It would usually show black colors a yucky distorted red sprinkles of mess, this doesnt do that. It also glowed at the edges of the screen.
Another issue which is slight is the cheap stand with this. This monitor feels like a piece of cardboard, its light, thin (which are good) but it wobbles around becuase of the stand. And if i have a cable plugged in it also ways down one side of the monitor and makes it look slightly unlevel. Not a big deal if you arn't an easily bothered person like me. I have the slim bezel version and i bought 3 of these from newegg for 200 a piece. Then i bought a monitor stripple stand and adjusted each one to look level and it looks buietifull in my basement dungeon lol.
One thing you can do if you prefered a high hz monitor but wanted better color with this monitor is if you go to your nvdia or catalyst control panel set the resolution at 1920x1080p @ 65 hz. Or if you want to run a low resolution like 900p go with 70hz. I love overclocking the pixel clock with this bad boy
