Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 37

How are these holding up long term? I'm curious what kind of problems anyone has had with these after a few months.

Mine broke after about 4 months. Half of screen starts to flicker rapidly while the other half is OK. Called Auria and they asked me to ship it back for a replacement.

Are they paying for shipping or are you?

Sensitive eyes rejoice! I come bearing lower-brightness calibration information for our favorite Micro-Center Monitor.

I've had this thing since June or July and so far still going strong with no issues. Mine has 1 dead pixel, and I have to try to find it (I keep forgetting it's even there until I do stuff like re-calibrate).

The only annoyance is with VGA output sometimes, like when updating graphics drivers or booting (no bios screen). Fortunately I use a 19" ViewSonic as the "#1" monitor so it displays POST at boot.

Anyway, on to the cal:



As in my previous post, this is an RGB SLIDER calibration. This means you get 100% accurate color in all games and movies, since the calibration is done on the monitor and not in the LUT of the video card.

Therefore, you must manually adjust all settings on the monitor to the following specifications:

BRIGHTNESS: 57
CONTRAST: 50
ECO: STANDARD
DCR: OFF

COLOR TEMP: USER
RED: 100
GREEN: 84
BLUE: 70

All other settings are at their defaults. I recommend doing a factory reset of the monitor settings before changing to the above values to ensure you don't have something wacky going on.

Now since each panel might have slight differences, I can't guarantee you will achieve 100% accuracy with your specific monitor, however this should get you close. If accuracy is important for you, I recommend you invest in a color calibration tool, such as the Spyder4Elite that I use. It's a powerful tool!

Auria-22-6500-RGB.zip 2k .zip file

This profile uses a lower brightness than my previous profile, so if you like a strong backlight, continue to use my previous profile. If you prefer a darker backlight with deeper blacks (or you use your monitor in a dim room), you may prefer this profile.

It's standard 2.2 gamma / 6500K with 120 cd/m2 brightness.

Extract the file to your Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color folder, and use the "Color Management" utility (Win7) to apply it.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the profile. Works great. Loving this monitor. Size rez and colors. Holding up well...but it's only been a couple months
post #366 of 1116
I used your settings on this and it made the grayscale look very red...ist hat normal? Also in Skyrim I can't seem to get the blacks to be really black..is that just the monitor? I am a monitor newbie wink.gif I know the monitor can do blacks because if I turn on DCR (or whatever it is called) it makes them VERY black, but I can't seem to replicate it with my own settings with DRC off.

This is a problem..mine shakes from my fan blowing on it (not lying)

I am trying to figure out what kind of stand is needed to replace..I've never dealt much with monitors and stands...saw someone mention before a standard something or other will fit from monoprice..but still trying to figure out what that is lol smile.gif

monoprice

Adjustable Tilting SINGLE Desk Mount Bracket for LCD LED

that's what i'm using. nice stand but the way you tighten it down once you have the position of the monitor is a little tricky for my likings. prob only drawback imo.

a lot of people are using arms that clamp on the desk or bolt to the wall these days as well but wasn't my cup of tea.

That's unusual. It could be an issue with the gamma / grayscale mapping in the profile. The RGB slider settings should be accurate, however. Try resetting to factory defaults, setting RGB sliders and other features back to my specified values, but NOT using the attached profile (reset to a default profile in windows color management).

If it's still looking red, it's possible that your model is significantly different than mine in its default color temperature and would require specific calibration.
