    Make Monitor Improvement Suggestions Here!

    Hi all,

    ASUS ROG is requesting our best suggestions for ROG product improvements. As a moderator I won’t have the ability to implement your suggestions but I will be picking some of the best to highlight for the ROG team so they know what matters to us, the community.

    Some guidelines for this thread:
    1) Keep it positive and constructive. In most of the forum I try to allow you all to express your thoughts freely (within reason). This thread has the express purpose of generating constructive suggestions so I will be moderating this thread and deleting posts that do not contribute to that goal.
    2) Keep it concise and on topic. Some minor discussion regarding a specific suggestion is welcome but if you would like to have a longer conversation I ask you start an additional thread and link it in your post here. You can also request a moderator move your posts if you have need.
    3) Try for realistic ideas that appeal broadly to gamers. A small improvement on an existing ROG product is much more likely to get chosen than an entirely new product that only matters to a small number of people.
    4) Support your favorites! You don’t have to come up with a suggestion to help. If you see something you like, quote it and say so! More support for an idea improves its chances.

    Possibility to disable deep sleep on monitors? Many monitors are suffering from difficulties in hooking the video signal ... Look at the PG32UQ and how many people are experiencing difficulties with the video signal. Releasing a more battle tested product would be a start in the first place.
    Improving products is always a good thing, but releasing them in an unfinished state is a practice that must stop.

    I believe sleep mode is regulated by various government bodies. So disabling it probably can't happen, but if other people want this too I'll forward it to the ROG folks and they can decide.

    A couple more suggestions for the PG32UQ:

    1. Enable color temp. controls in sRGB mode. I use sRGB mode to clamp down the gamut for general desktop usage. Without OSD color controls in this mode, I have to use my calibrated ICC profile to get the monitor to D65. This also means that other non-PC devices that I connect to the monitor (e.g. streaming devices, game consoles) are stuck with the default color temperature in sRGB mode.

    2. Keep intermediate refresh rates available when monitor overclocking is enabled. 100, 120, and 144Hz are available when overclocking is off. When overclocked to 155Hz, 100, 120, and 144Hz are disabled. It would be preferrable to have 155Hz on, while keeping 100, 120Hz, and 144Hz available for video content which could be 24p, 30p, 50p, etc. On my older PG348Q, 80, 85, 90, and 95 Hz are all available even when the monitor is overclocked to 100Hz.

    3. Even out the overdrive control for the refresh range of the monitor. At 60Hz and below, OD >2 shows noticeable overshoot. At 100Hz and above, noticeable overshoot starts at OD 5.

    4. Add a maximum content luminance tool for HDR content. This is probably asking too much for a monitor that's not targeted for content production, but such a tool would really help for dialing in maximum HDR luminance in games that use arbitrary numbers for HDR calibration. A current example of this is Halo Infinite, where the HDR setting is a percentage instead of nits or cd/m2.

    Xeromist thank you for your reply. Is there some way to know an official answer for what Asus thinks about the difficulties on hooking the video signal with some configurations on the PG32UQ? There are people who can't enter the BIOS even with recent graphic cards (eg. RTX 3090).
    Till now we haven't received any official response about this and we don't know where the problem lies (the videocard, the monitor, the motherboard, etc.)
    Everybody seems to have a different experience and sometimes the problem seems to appear randomly. Also, re-hooking the signal from a sleep state seems to be very , very slow. One word if this is solvable, if they're looking into it or whatever action they will take would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Due to the lunar new year holiday many staff will be out of the office. I will pass this concern along to ASUS when I can but it might take a while to get a response. I'm already following the other thread on this topic so we can keep the discussion in that thread.

    All the suggestions here are really helpfull.

    I want to add another one. I struggle to find perfect brightness settings for all day time. In daylight I set it to 50 but in the night its too bright and need to go to 40. It is total nonsense to change brightness twice a day manually so it will be great if you can create brightness profile for day and night usage (software automatic change of brightness based on day time). One way is to integrate that functionality in Asus monitor control software.

    Color temp setting is also a must. I tend to use 6700K temp on all my monitors and I have to use third party apps to set it.

    Also please fix Asus DisplayWidget as it doesnt control brightness in Windows 11 (you can move brightness slider but it doesnt affect the actual brightness).
