XL2420T, pretty happy so far

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just got my XL2420T yesterday and im super happy with the performance while playing bf3...i think i need one more 6950 to really take advantage of the 120hz as im hovering around 70fps avg running one on ultra. Nevertheless, I think it was a great choice and would recommend anyone getting it.

That is all.

It being my first 3d monitor, its very very good. I didn't believe in the 3d before (I was that type) but after picking this up, its awesome. Only thing is, I can't wear this very long. I do get headaches. So max would probably be through one movie.

As you will find on many threads concerning this monitor, changing the settings to standard is necessary. FPS1 kinda makes everything washed out...That, and reduce the gamma and it is perfect.

Hope this helps.

Using TFTcentral's settings

Picture Mode: Standard
Gamma: 1
Brightness: 5
Contrast: 50
Colour Temperature: User Mode
RGB: 96, 99, 95

Once calibrated, the colors are pretty good, but not great. I'll gladly take good colors and 120hz vs great colors and 60hz.
