2) Color uniformity - on white/grey screen and web pages the screen is noticeably more red at the top and green at the bottom. It's pretty of noticeable and annoying while surfing the web, just curious if I should live with it or if it's worth returning and rolling the dice on another.
All the feedback in this thread is awesome. Thanks.
Hello! I haven't encountered anything about a 10bit ICC profile fixing banding. I only notice some banding issues in the black (pure black) output, no banding elsewhere. I also notice really, really good color uniformity (I angle mine and view it from different areas of my room quite frequently), so if you're noticing significant banding and uniformity issues, yours may be faulty!

) but I've been having some pretty bad eye strains, headaches, and even slight nausea. It's my eyes getting used to LCD panels all over again. Ack.
Hoping the lower brightness helps, otherwise I'm not sure I can keep this thing. Unsure if the eye strain is being caused by the glossiness, screen size, or high resolution, if not the brightness.
I'm coming up on my next calibration soon, and I've been thinking of making a new calibration with lower brightness
I initially did it as bright as possible because I wanted to see how good of blacks I could get out of this monitor at its maximum output. However, I agree! This thing is SO FREAKING BRIGHT that it can be a bit of an eye strain, especially if you're viewing it up close.
So next time I recalibrate, I'll post my settings again, and target a lower brightness for better contrast/deeper blacks, and a little less eye strain (hopefully)!
