I just bought a ASUS TUF Gaming VG24VQ 23.6” Curved Monitor and I've never had a monitor before this. 

 

I'm a little disoriented with how the picture looks when compared to my ASUS ROG GX502GV Laptop. The image on my laptop looks better, less soft, less white, less nice overall. 

 

Can I adjust the monitors settings to look at it does on the laptop?

Most monitors should have in their settings a way to play with saturation, contrast, brightness and things like that and usually have different modes depending on what you're doing. Have you tried seeing what those are? A lot of times right out the box monitors need just a little tweaking to get them just right.

Yeah I've been playing around with it for awhile but nothing so far seems as spot on as my laptop. It's just kind of irritating

It's going to look less sharp than your laptop. There's nothing you can do about that. It's a 24" monitor at 1080p, your laptop is a 15" at 1080p. Others have mentioned ways you can change some settings that might help it look closer, but it won't improve sharpness.

for colors, you can try adjusting the color temperature

but it's near impossible to get them to be similar unless you have a calibration tool, and assuming the panel is capable of doing so, and have the same characteristics (which is near impossible)

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

It might not be perfect, but there are sites out there that (if your monitor is supported) you can download some kind of file and have it change your settings automatically, some kind of script I think I'm not sure. There is a reputable ones out there, though I can't recall them at the moment, maybe someone else in the thread knows what I'm talking about.

Laptop monitors typically have better dpi. 

 

Whereas gaming pcs usually have better specs. 

 

 

It's very silly but what can you do except buying a really tiny 17 inch monitor or something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've had two new monitors in the last 6 months.

 

One is a 4k 6hz and the other is 1440p 144hz.

 

Neither, at least for me, felt right straight out of the box.

 

It took some time and patience to find the sweet spot, and it is still not necessarily what someone else may find as their optimal image. 

 

Some people prefer a darker image, others brighter, some like sharpness, others less so, some people sit close to the screen, others futher away, some may have varying degrees of colour blindness, or be short/long sighted. 

 

All of these things can affect how you will want to set up your monitor. 

 

Which is fine, as nowadays there are numerous ways to personalise the experience and tailor it exactly to your specific needs.

 

My point being, there aren't really any definitive settings that can be used by everyone. 

 

The best thing is take a few minutes to play with your monitor, learn it's Interface, and find what is best for you.
