Asus VG248QE Settings & Color Profile (Latest 2022)

Asus VG248QE is a classic affordable gaming monitor whose prime feature is its reduced image display time. It consists of a refresh rate of 144Hz and a resolution of 1920×1080.

The Asus VG248QE comes in a 24-inch screen with a very rapid 1ms response time speed. 

It has had quite a success as a gaming monitor as it is quite an affordable gaming device in its range with such a great refresh rate of 144Hz.

It has a good premium quality build feel and design. In addition to that, It has good viewing angles and comes with built-in speakers.

The Asus VG248QE, however affordable, comes with its list of cons, the biggest of which is that its colors quite often feel faded and dull.

This might be quite putting off for a professional or even an amateur gamer. You are required to fully calibrate the monitor to get the optimal color quality that you want while watching anything and playing games.

Asus VG248QE Settings & Color Profile (Latest 2022)

There are very few tricky steps that you need to follow in order to calibrate the monitor.

Just a few changes here and there in your settings and your On-Screen Display (OSD) menu and you would be good to go. Just these few steps and you would achieve your ideal color profile settings. 

Each Asus VG248QE Monitor is different from the other due to panel variance and you might have to do some further tweaks here and there according to your preference and that is something you need to keep at the back of your mind before you get started. 

After trying and testing and making various tweaks here and there, these were a few of the best OSD settings.

  • Splendid Mode: Standard
  • Brightness: 64
  • Contrast: 74 or 75
  • Sharpness: 40
  • Saturation: 55
  • Color Temp: User
  • Smart view: Disabled
  • Skin Tone: Natural
  • Trace Free: 40
  • ASCR: Off

You can increase the brightness if you prefer much brighter images.

The ideal color temperature, though dependent on the user, should be 94 for green, 95 for red, and 88 for blue.

Here and also for any of the next options going above 60 in Trace free, on most occasions will lead to inverse ghosting.

  • Contrast: 61
  • Sharpness: 49
  • Saturation: 61
  • Color Temp: User
  • Smart view: Disabled

Aside from these above modified you can say settings there are some preset or default modes already present in your monitor.

If you don’t want all the confusion of all the various settings, then this might be the way to go. Let’s take a look at ways that you can use these settings to give you just the edge that you require.

1. Scenery Mode

These modes are as basic as they come. Their images and the display of those images are sharp and bright. The saturation is quite high and very noticeable.

You can change and or modify some of the features like brightness, color temp (Refer to a few of the color temp combinations mentioned above), contrast with this preset scenery mode.

2. Theater Mode

This is again quite similar to Scenery Mode. The slight difference that you will notice is that there is a slight reduction in shade crushing as compared to the scenery mode.

The few setting modifications available with this mode are again Contrast, Brightness, Saturation, Skin Tone, Color Temp, and Sharpness.

3. Game Mode

The Game mode falls in similar lines as the Theater Mode. Like Theater Mode there is a reduction in shade crushing however quite a bit of oversaturation happens.

You can change similar settings like in the theater mode. 

4. Night View Mode

Here there is a bit of shade crushing, beaching, and oversaturation. The dark and black shades seem quite blended and differentiating between them becomes difficult as the contrast is on lower levels.

Settings like Color Temp, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness, and Skin tone can be changed.
