Asus vx238h so called 1 ms

Ive bought this monitor and it really doesnt look any faster than my 5 year old laptop and ive tested many things. Including testing it on a friends high grade gaming computer. When i drag cursor or folders it gets distorted, when i drag a window it gets distorted in the sides.
It takes so little moving around for it to show these things, makes me think its not a 1ms monitor.

Ive tried taking screenshots and doing a recording on screen (screen o matic). But it doesnt show any problems. Its only visible when using a camera or by watching.
This should normally count out the gpu being at fault right?
I wanna rma it, but im scared they gonna say the monitor is fine and id have to pay the cost for the check up.
Please anyone with knowledge, tell me something that can point me in the right direction.

Best regard

  1. You need to adjust the trace free option. Lowering it should fix it.

  3. So it's not ghosting. Could you explain the distortion more? It may be the focus option. No other options can can artifacts so if these don't work, contact asus support and see what they say.

    Hi k1114
    After talking to asus and got my rma refused(first try) since they said it didnt sound like my monitor was at fault, but my gpu.
    I brought up my old samsung crt, and i did all the tests i did on the asus monitor. Everything i threw at it showed perfect non ghosting picture, i could even see the rolling text clear on the highest speed at level 16 in pixperan(ghosting test software)

    On the asus i cant even read the rolling text when i have it on level 4. It just distorts the heck of it.

    If i try to rma this do you think asus can say the monitor does like it was intended and it tested out fine?

    ps. Ive tested the focus option, it didnt help.
  5. Since another monitor works fine as well as recording, your gpu is not at fault.
