http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2711.htm Check this out. It's got 30 Brightness, 50 Contrast, and 83/94/87 RGB at fully calibrated settings. Not sure of the revision of either the TFTCentral monitor or the one you're using, but it's worth a shot.
Can't complain about a display like the U2711 if you have it calibrated completely backwards..

That site also says that it's 50 brightness from factory, so OP must've increased brightness. Knowing how bright most displays are from factory, I'd guess that's a bad thing.

I actually raised it up from 40 and liked it better. I can't really describe the problem that well, I just feel like my eyes can't focus on the screen at all. Its not the resolution, I've used 27 and 30" ACD before with no issues even over extended periods of looking at it. I will try some of the settings you suggested and see if its any better. Is there any way to help the tearing in games?

EDIT: If I turn the brightness down to 30 its like looking through a tinted window. Maybe this monitor is defective? I know he bought it when the u2711 very first came out and it is a rev 1.0.

^ its probably just the heavy matted AG coating...my IPS is kinda like that also...higher brightness helps..but than it becomes blinding. I kept mine at 50%...stock it was 100%...amazing colors..but too bright and monitor got very hot....

I use a brightness of 55 (I think the default is 50) with the custom color mode. With the other modes (if they were usable), I'd use a brightness of between 40 and 50 probably. As said above, it gets too tinted and dull any lower, and 55 isn't too blinding and doesn't ruin the colors much (Blacks aren't great though), so it's the best compromise.

Ah, I thought so via my edit above from fiddling around.

So I figured out my issue with this screen. Feel free to call me an idiot, but I have to wear my glasses to look at it properly. Normally I take them off for PC use because I'm nearsighted, but apparently the dot pitch is just right that I have problems with it in combination with the AG coating.

I still don't like it as much as my regular monitor, particularly it has really bad tearing in games if I try to rotate my view too fast. But at least I can look at it with no problems now.

I personally don't have tearing at all in any games, I use MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 BETA 14 and I limit all my games to 64fps (Instead of using vsync and adding a lot of input lag), and this gets rid of all tearing to me, and runs just as smooth as vsync. smile.gif

There's no way in the world I'd go have to my old 23" TN, IPS monitors are so much better, not to mention 2560x1440 is awesome for gaming.

This.

When I got my IPS I was like 'This looks almost too vivid!


Then I borrowed dad's EOS450D, took a picture right off my window at the settings that I felt were most realistic, put a copy of the pic on each screen (E2250V / IPS235V), and looked at them, then looked out at the window.

I was SO amazed. The IPS235 showed colors the 2250V wasnt' even capable of representing. The color accuracy was so good in the IPS235 that the E2250V looked like a dull fake of the reality.


And to be honest, I didn't find ghosting to be THAT noticeable as opposed to what people say about IPS. Sure it is there, but it's nothing to make a mountain out of.


Edit: Both screens have been calibrated to their nearly maximum capabilities.
