LG 24GM79G Review + Measuring Data / Optimal Settings and ICC Profile

#1
This is a Freesync Torunament for 6 Monitors - to find out which of these is the best (also in price performance ratio):
Acer XF240H
Asus MG248Q
ViewSonic XG2401
Iiyama G-Master GB2488HSU-B3 Red Eagle
LG 24GM79G-B
Samsung S25GH50

All measuring datas from the LG 24GM79G review. Suggestions, questions, critism, and new ideas? Post them in here.

ICC Profile here: https://www.limscave.de/media/lg_24gm79g/LG24GM79G.icm

Very important to the topic "the optimal OSD settings".

Review Updates:

Regarding the Horizontal + moving scanlines from bottom to top. Only visible @ uniform mid-bright image content like grey and when looking very close to it (from a distance of approximately 30cm). I wouldn't say necessarily that this is a "real" disadvantage. It's by far not that visible like the scanlines from the CHG70 or the PG348Q for example. It also isn't possible to capture this on camera. These scanlines are not as usual "scanlines", they are like vertical thin "darker" bars traveling from bottom to top.

Yes, of course, IPS is better than TN, even 5+ years old IPS panels (mostly - when the contrast is not too bad) It is especially noticeable when switching from IPS to TN and even more noticeable when using an IPS panel for some longer time

For games, I still think the high refresh is the best gaming feature on a monitor. But I also think that you can get used to the TN colors after using it for some (few) days. Let us know :)

You should set the black equalizer to 0 because it also raises the overall black level @the LG.

My settings are here:

But I would not really recommend just to adapt my settings. You should set:
1. your brightness settings
2. color temperature (to your personal taste - warm around 5500-6200K, neutral "whitest white) around 6500k - cool above 6500k) There is not really an "optimum", especially for games
3. gamma
4. and again brightness (because brightness will change a little bit after changing the color temperature)

For CS I probably would increase the black equalizer or the gamma a bit so that you will lose some contrast but increase the visibility of your enemies. Overdrive set to normal. In terms of color temperature and brightness, there is not an "optimum": https://www.limscave.com/best-monitor-settings

If you like to use the Motion Blur Reduction feature (which I personally do) you can use LGs strobing (they call it 1ms motion blur reduction). This, however, is personal taste and you cannot use Freesync at the same time with this scanning feature enabled

By overdrive you mean response time set to normal instead of fast?

No, it doesn't help with input lag, only with the response time. When you coudlnt notice any artifacts then you can try to keep it on fast. However, in some games, you probably will see some artifacts when setting to fast. For black equalizer/gamma is not really an optimum for FPS or other games, this is just personal preference. And it also will not make you better when using settings from other "pro" gamers :)
