The link in the OP's post is the link to your thread on the forum, it's still there.
I'd like to thank you for taking the time to do the testing you've done. You posted it about two years ago and I'm sure it got quite a few views but, it's going to take more than two people to get any real attention. There needs to be a lot more people making noise and/or agreeing with you. So with that, all I can say is, check every now and then at the ASUS Support Center for firmware updates.
i have the same problem, the config is stuck in monitor, only work if disconnect and conect power suppy monitor. i need help to fix this problem, i have experience in electronic repair, but this problem isn´t physical.
turn the monitor off. then hold down the joystick, then turn the power on while joystick is held down. let go after monitor comes on. Press joystick again and it takes you into service menu. to get into normal OSD, press button below joystick then joystick. Or press joystick then move joystick to the outer of the screen while "exit" is highlighted
Only way to get any traction would be to make a petition.org or something and have enough signatures. I know this panel is capable of better VRR + strobing performance but if they improved this panel with options like strobe phase (or even changed the 1 strobe phase setting to be a little higher than currently) this monitor would be almost as good as OLED in terms of motion clarity since the OFF cycle would hide most of the gtg.
