Acer Nitro XF252Q turns off VRB automatically after standby

I've set VRB to extreme and every time I turn off my PC and the monitor goes into standby, the next day I turn on my PC and the monitor wakes up, VRB is set to off. Anyone else with this issue?

Re: XF252Q Up on Amazon!

Just a quick update -- I did some basic monitor calibration and the colours look a lot better now. I used the Lagom LCD test to adjust gamma and contrast. I'm using the stock "2.2" gamma mode on the monitor and applying correction via the Nvidia driver. I recommend you do this (or better) if you do...

Re: XF252Q Up on Amazon!

Got and tested the xl 2546 yesterday and I must say, that I'm kinda disappointed and will be sending it back. The advantages it offers over my current 120hz XL2420T with strobelight utility are very few, the colors are worse and 500 EUR is a steep price to pay for that. I'd rather wait for the OMEN...

Re: XF252Q Up on Amazon!

I've just set Over Drive to Extreme and VRB to Extreme as well. I must say that there is a difference and motions are even more clear. Can't say if input lag is noticeable lower, but it feels very responsive.

I'm also surprised that the XF252Q doesn't get more attention.

Re: XF252Q Up on Amazon!

Why no Overdrive on the Extreme setting? Doesn't that give the lowest input lag/latency? I'm not sure though, not in the monitor masterrace scene yet. I didn't bother with it yet, because of The Extreme mode showed some noticeable and distracting overshoot artefacts in the form of pale halos behind...

Also my friend has an AG251FZ2 and a XL2540 and he says the AG251FZ2 is way too sharp and clear, and has no ghosting but his XL2540 has ghosting. He's torn on which to keep.
Just get the cheapest DP cable, there is no difference in signal quality.

Re: XF252Q Up on Amazon!

I also got the XF252Q since 2 days for 300£, which is my first 240Hz monitor coming from an 144Hz BenQ XL2411T. I'm a high-level competitive CS:GO player and was looking for an upgrade and did some research, so I hope I made the right choice as I was also considering the BenQ XL2546 (>400£). There a...
