Ok. Is this true for ALL games?

Also, what do you think is the main difference of TFTCentral's calibration vs. PCM's calibration? Any particular application where one is better than the other?

Thought I would post my settings. Took some tweaking but i'm finally very happy with this monitor's color and image quality.

First thing to note is that this monitor really struggles at low brightness settings. You'll have to deal with the high brightness if you want the colors to be anywhere close to "true". Notice the increase in digital vibrance, this really helps make the colors "pop". For BF3, I use a DV setting of 65%-70%. ATI has a similar setting, I believe it is called saturation. Enjoy...

Monitor Settings:
Picture Mode: Standard
Brightness 85 or 90
Contrast 50
Sharpness 5
Gamma 4
Color Temp ---> user mode 98 98 100

Nvidia Control Panel Settings:
Desktop Use:
check the "Other application control color settings" option
Digital Vibrance = 56% (default = 50%)

No, but it's true for the majority.
I prefer PCM's calibration because it isn't dependent on an ICC profile that might work.

Right. So you don't use any ICC profile personally?

No, just the sRGB standard profile.

Using your config, monitor looks better.

Using his config, ya eyes be burnin, man.

I use 5 brightness for desktop use. I can see things at day, but when it's dark, whites are terribly bright even like this. That's also what TFT Central found. Using 80+ brightness will hurt your eyes really bad in a dark room. Digital Vibrance will improve saturation quite a bit and make it look less washed out though.

My eyes are fealing wierd. Might tone down the brightness a little.

5 brightness is quite nice at this time of night. I might have a use for the quite controls now.

I also agree that this settings are working great for me. The brightness is a lot though at night but overall its great.
