Menu & Set-Up

Just like the older monitors, the HP 25f needs to have its overdrive setting (Response Time in the Image Control menu) which controls the pixel response times increased since it is preset to the lowest setting by default.  The Response Time setting needs to be set to Level 4 of 5 to provide the fastest overshoot ghosting free pixel response times, which are nearly on par with the fastest 60hz TN panels like the BenQ Zowie RL2460.

Activate the menu:

Access the Image Control menu to gain access to the Response Time sub-menu:

Select Level 4 to improve the overdrive performance or speed of the pixel response times and reduce color streaking and motion blur:

The AMD Free-Sync setting, Gaming - Free-Sync, in the Viewing Mode Menu must also be manually activated to enable Free-Sync with compatible AMD graphics cards and the Xbox One X.  The Gaming - Free-Sync setting locks the color (Red, Green and Blue) controls, but not the Brightness and Contrast settings, and it provides the same preset color accuracy as the default setting.

To activate Free-Sync select the Color Control Menu,

Then access the Viewing Modes sub-menu:

Then select Gaming - Free-Sync to activate the Free-Sync mode.  Free-Sync must also be activated by the console (Xbox One X) and/or graphics card as well.  Here's how to activate Free-Sync with the Xbox One X, and here's how to with compatible AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.
