Hi guys
I just got my VG248QE, and i was wondering how to calibrate it.
Everywhere I look people say that you should always calibrate a new monitor, but i've never done it before.
Does anyone have a guide or could give some help in how to get the best out of my monitor ?

I have the same monitor. I don't really care that much about colors but i find the best mode is standard mode. Haven't calibrated yet.

Best solution

Read this article. It links you to an ICC profile to correct out of the box color. Fix my vg248qe color article and color profile.

Sorry for being such a noob, but what is an ICC profile ?
Should I just set my monitor with the setting they suggested in the article ?

( this ones ?)
Splendid= Theater Mode
Sharpness= 40 (eliminates some minor fringing on text – also use ClearType)
Brightness= 54 (according to preferences and lighting)
Contrast= 43 (default contrast in this preset gives major shade crushing)
Color Temp= User Mode
Red= 100
Green= 95
Blue= 93

Thanks for the help

In the article I posted above after reading down a ways there is a link to download the ICC profile. The best way I know to describe the ICC profile is a file full of optimal color settings. Either in the article or an article it links to is directions for using the ICC file. I would rate the process as medium difficulty but doable and worth it.

I've also tried one ICC profile of them, and it was very similar to the one in the article, I think it was just a little bit lighter.
