something seems off - maybe thats normal and i am just not used to stuff looking as "ugly" as this or its the monitor - or i was not really thinking when buying a tn panel cuz thats normal.
You have to describe what you mean with something seems off :P I mean IPS still is superior and has the best image quality in monitors for now on PC's
this is popular monitor and lot of people buy it because your review (i read on other forums).
And u said that this monitor have best colors and picture quality? Than i feel sorry for Samsung, Asus, Benq, etc.
If you still have this monitor can you look at it one more time?
The Viewsonic is a little bit better just that the Viewsonic does not have backlight strobing. So I am recommending the Viewsonic mostly, and the LG when someone really wants backlight strobing. The Asus is clearly the worst of all I have tested. I do not own the LG anymore but I am really wondering what you say that your old Samsung has a better look - but since you have said that the monitor looks better now after adding color vibrancy I am somehow assuming that the Samsung has off-color saturation settings. The more color vibrancy you add, the worse your color dynamic range will be but colors of course then are more intense

hi,

color in the sky shifts from color to color and u see clear distinctive lines between them- in the screenshot i provided - but since i asked around that seems to be normal for tn panels and 6bit frc panels.

i can make it better by leaving gamma settings in nvidia control panel alone - the gradient lagom test makes it better too but colors have a yellowish tint to it when it goes into the more grey parts.

btw lim - just to clarify your settings as one on the previous page probably missunderstood - or i did.

brightness settings to 40 and the 4 is for the gamma mode right? - and did u do your optimal settings thing with lg 1ms thingy on or off?

i know monitors are different per unit and getting "correct" settings is a personal thing. just want it to be clarified ;)

This is just color accuracy which is of course mostly not great within TN panels and this also can vary a bit in each unit but mostly not by far.

I had set brightness to 4 and gamma mode to 4 yes

it would be nice to go into a bit of detail on the gamma calibration outside of the osd - not only for this monitor but in general for all monitors - only if u did it of course
Yes, this is not a bad idea but also not really easy to hit "perfect" gamma 2.2 (in the center of the screen) without a hardware device. The Gamma value also differs from TN / IPS / VA. While a TN still will have a more dynamic range in darker grey steps and less in brighter on gamma 2.2 than IPS and especially VA - So in the end this is also something which is combined with a touch of "personal preference"

yea i know - u could probably just put it in your articles when u test a monitor and declare it as such "with my unit i had to do +0.63 gamma" in the nvidia / radeon control panel" but remember - it is for my unit and can be different for yours.

u would clarify it again for the beginner who actually reads it and also give an indication what u had to do to get _your_ prefered settings.

anyway i think i found my personel "good" settings - the color bending after some tweaks is a lot better (only took me a week) :D had to do some nvidia gamma changes too cuz only the osd settings where not satisfying.

good monitor after the calibration. the bezel could be a bit smaller but thats just nagging.
