ASUS ROG GL752 falls short in terms of image quality compared to some of the competition

asus-ROG-GL752We are quite used to seeing ASUS ROG notebooks shipping with high-quality IPS panels, although some of them use PWM to adjust screen brightness, but this time, the 17-inch GL752VW is available with a TN panel. And we are somewhat disappointed, to be honest.

You can find the laptop’s availability and price here: http://amzn.to/1U9PsuX

Don’t judge too quickly, though, as the panel provides about 95% sRGB color gamut coverage and more than excellent contrast ratio of 1200:1. Both of those results are not typical for your everyday TN matrix, which suggests of high-quality TN panel. Nevertheless, we cannot overcome the poor viewing angles, inherited from the TN panel and low maximum brightness (272 cd/m2). The latter will result in lowered visibility if you are gaming near a strong light source, but we have a good solution to this problem, which we will post in our upcoming full review.

So if you are looking for a better image quality in a 17-inch form factor, the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition will be a better choice and probably the 17-inch version of the Lenovo Y700 as well.

High quality TN with excellent sRGB and contrast values, but still not IPS.
So is it still good for photo/video editing and watching movies? (at 100% brightness to avoid PWM)
I need a response asap please!
Thank you.

It really depends. Photo and video editing might not be a great idea for a TN panel but for general multimedia seems nice. You will just have to constantly adjust the incline of the screen since viewing angles aren’t good.

Thank you very much for the fast reply.
It seems I will have to stick with the 15.6″ IPS since we don’t have much to choose from where I live.

According to a german review on YT this is the screen reference:
