View Full Version : Asus downgraded and gimp the 1080p screen on the G75VX compared to G75VX

Asus messed up when they replaced the screen of the G75 default screen of Chi Mei N173HGE to AUO B173HW02. The black lvls and the contrast ratio is worst on the AUO screen on the G75VX and this probably has something to do with the loose screen frame also.

Chi Mei N173HGE on all G75VW
- 800:1 Contrast Ratio
- 0.3 cd/m Black Levels Value (lower the better)

AUO B173HW02 on the new G75VX
- 450:1 Contrast Ratio
- 0.6 cd/m (lower the better)


When I was comparing the G75VW and 75X side by side, the screen on the VW looks cleaner and shows true blacks than the VX where the blacks looks a lil greyish/bluish because of the downgrade of black lvls.


The moral of all this is that, don't change anything or fix anything if it's not broke. The upgrade to Kepler 670mx and Thunderbolt are good but why gimp the damn Screen Asus?!?!?! SMH TSK TSK TSK

Some VW have Chi Mei and some have AUO. Same thing for VX. I've got a VX with a Chi Mei. (and I hate the graininess)

VX i got has a Chi Mei but just a heads up the specs you listed are not even close to what sun spider picked up on the VW i had or this VX.

sun spider lsd at full brightness

Brightness: 267 cd/m2
Contrast: 670:1
Blacks: 0.47 cd/m2

Just like its been pointed out. The VW's and VX's both use Chi Mei and AUO. This is one of the reason you need to check out the system before you get it so you dont get one of the gimped versions Asus has been so kindly to put out. On the upside i seen one of the AUO's and they looked like crap.

How can you tell which screen you have? I looked in the device manager and all it says is generic pnp monitor

Ok I found it. It says MONITOR\LGD02D9. So is this good or bad? LOL. My monitor seems flawless though...

Brightness: 329.3 cd/m2
Black: 0.83 cd/m2
Contrast: 440:1

As you can see its brighter then the ones in the G75's but the blacks and contrast is pretty bad. I havent seen any problems with those displays but another user has reported lines in his so they could show up in yours its something to keep a eye on.

Yeah I was researching here for a few minutes. I was probably hoping it said LP156WF1 instead huh?

CMO1720 here. Not too sure if that is good or bad. When I google it, it says Chi Mei. My overall imprssions on the screen are so-so. It is much better than most other laptop displays I have seen. I do have pretty high expectations though as I am a video snob. Either way, still satisfied. I didn't expect much from the monitor, just happy it is 1080p.

I just opened my brand new G75VX-DH72-CA and it says CMO1720

It is plenty bright almost to the point it looks washed out

My G75VX I got from Best Buy. It has MONITOR\AUO219D which I'm very happy with.

I also had a G50V back in 08/09 which I liked also.

Hmm interesting. So far the Chi Mei is the best of the 3 since it has higher contrast ratio and better black values and it seems that Asus put random panels on the Best Buy G75VX since 1 best buy owner says he has Chi Mei and the other best buy owner says he has AUO.

Yeah Asus was not to good on picking panels at all. I mean they did not even try to make the G75 consistent with the displays.

All I get is the Monitors Properties screen, with the tap titled "General" and no other information?
