BenQ XL2410/11/20 Club - Page 74

post #731 of 750
Hi everyone I have had this monitor for a few years now and have recently upgraded to an SSD. I cannot for the life of me get the monitor to run in 120hz mode on this new windows 7 install. It is running at 100hz but if I change the setting to the screen goes black and flicks on and off endlessly. The wiring setup is all ok because if I plug my old drive back in I am running at 120hz.

Hi guys I got an XL2411Z the other day and cannot get any of my settings to stay put after restarting my PC, does anyone know how to fix that? I've saved them as a preset in Display Pilot but have to manually load it each start up and also then manually enable blur reduction and the gamma setting too. The preset is set to default as well and the program runs at startup...I just cant work this one out and nobody else seems to mention this as an issue...

edit for anyone who may need it...turns out just choosing my settings and then not starting display pilot on startup solved the issue. Only open it if you want to change anything, otherwise leave it closed.

P.S.: this monitor is awesome and nearly looks as good as my eIPS with that. (But not liking the color shift, especially sucks when looking at it from the bottom due to TN panel. I would never run this monitor in portrait mode.)

edit: also if you want to mess with blur reduction, there's good info on the blur busters forums!

Contrast 80 ? How did you manage to get that to look correct? The white clipping point is exactly 51.
I Just set contrast 80 on my 2720Z and the whites become ---massively--- crushed into the greys and no amount of color adjustments can fix something like that...

Then again, could be panel differences...2411z/2420z/2430t use the same panel as the vg248qe, and the white clipping point on the VG248QE was either 80 or 84 contrast...

By lowering individual color channels. I was using a very bright background picture when messing with contrast so it was pretty obvious I was turning brighter parts into full white with more contrast, but lowering the color channels gave me back the detail there.

Of course might be just my panel. But it fixed how washed out/extremely green LoL was looking compared to on my eIPS, so I'm happy! (well they did change the map now to be less ridiculously colored anyway. But it still looks great.)

Also I think my overall max brightness took a slight hit from the lower color channels, but it's not like the monitor has brightness issues.

edit: wouldn't mind to give a look to a calibration image you recommend and report if there's anomalies. The simplest I found online looks about perfect to me (edit: aside from some blue related issues c;), as in all the colors are uniquely identifiable( http://www.giuseppepassera.com/_Media/calibration_test.gif ) (and gradual color shift, like the second non black blocks actually look twice as bright as the first non blacks)

Also you sure make me want to grab a bigger monitor! Wondering how the 27" panel behaves now. White turns grey on that with more contrast? I can give mine 100 contrast and all that happens is more and more bright parts turn white on bright pictures. (or highs turn the same color as the brightest on the calibration image; Of course lowering individual color channels still can offset that without crushing the low end on this panel.).

Both the 2720Z and 2420Z/2430T (sort of a successor to the 2420Z, the 2430T is NOT related to the 2420T/TE as it has benq blur reduction but NO lightboost) have a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Just the 2720Z (and the 2720T before it) keep a 1000:1 contrast ratio in Nvidia's lightboost mode (and slightly better colors) than the 24" panels do; the 24" panels can barely manage 400:1 contrast in LB mode. (benq blur reduction mode doesn't hit the contrast at all).

The 2720Z goes up to 50 contrast accurately and 51 is the clipping point. (in Lightboost mode, 37 is the "purple tint" point, and 45 starts crushing -yellows- or something....(or turning whites into some bizarre color), much different from going past 50 contrast in normal/BBR mode)

It's nice to have a big screen without having text look like ants, but a 27" TN will still give you some nice color shift problems if you're too close...it's nowhere NEAR as bad as monitor elitists make it out to be on these forums--just ignore them. I have TWO 24" and a 27" 1080p (XL2720Z, 2xVG248QE) panels right in front of me, and your eyes are NOT going to bleed by typing on a 1080p 27", regardless of what the "buy a 1440p or be a homeless bum" people will try to tell you.

Benq Blur Reduction is fine if you use the VT trick as it increases the brightness significantly, and then adjust the strobe timing to adjust brightness. I tend to use around 1ms to 2.5ms. Admittedly, there's settings below that for persistence that seem quite not viable. Heck 0.166ms is an option through the hidden menu, and it's not like it's hard to read a forum on that. Just very dark.
edit: I actually haven't tried lightboost yet, it sounds weird to get changed colors.

and yeah I tend to prefer to sit away a bit from my monitors anyway, I doubt I'd mind 1080p on 27" at all.

hey guys, just got the XL2420z few hours ago, I`m really impressed with the refresh rate and the frames but can`t say the same about the color representation and blacks, even after I followed the calibration of the 1st page, everything seems to be completely off compared to my samsung PLS monitor. anyway I have like 24 hours to decide if I should return it or not. so I have few things to ask u guys.
1- the top touch bottom seems to be way less responsive than the other 4 bottoms, is that normal or a manufacture defect?
2- when going into the service menu I see a the it says V003 does that means I have firmware v3?
3- are there is any hope to get better picture out of this monitor if I keep it, or is this is as good it will get in terms of color accuracy and vibrancy?

So the best settings that I've found for the the XL2420t are as follows, now bear in mind that these settings do in-fact need to coincide with other settings via the Nvidia Control Panel.

So the two settings that I use on a daily basis are:

Profile 1: I use this profile not too often, but when I do I'll use it while playing games such as H1Z1 and CS:GO etc.

Brightness: 76
Contrast: 56
Sharpness: 6
Gamma: 5
Colour: 91/89/99

(This mode produces more of a blue-tint to your graphics, which is very good (imo) when playing games as it just makes everything pop out a little bit better to be honest).

Profile 2: I use this profile a lot more than the first profile, I just think it's got a more neutral tone and just makes viewing a monitor all the better essentially.

Brightness: 76
Contrast: 56
Sharpness: 6
Gamma: 5
Colour: 93/97/98

The only thing that changes here is the color options to be honest. But as I said above, this makes the game feel a little softer and has more neutral colours, more traditional colours.

So the settings that I use within Nvidia control panel are as follows:

And finally, I also use a program to help keep my colours locked in, as sometimes you may notice that if you change the colours/brightness within the NCC they tend to change and get reverted when you play a game and they tend to not revert back after you leave that game/full screen program.

So to keep my settings at all times, I use a simple program called: "Color Profile Keeper" which you can find right here:

Hope this helps some of you.
