Its obvious the subpar black levels are due to the Gamma being too high and there is no way to lower it on the monitor unfortunately. Plus I can still feel the PWM dimming eye strain after 30 mins. Oh well.

You said they had a glossy version. Are you considering buying and testing that version?

The glossy one is known to have PWM dimming so I dont want it. Looks like I'll have to powny up the money and buy the Viewsonic vp2770 which does not use PWM dimming and has all the setting you need to make a great picture.

These Aurias are like a pre-set monitor, you cant change some major features like Gamma, thats unheard of.

what settings do you have the monitor at? I still haven't been able to have it display only black and white with this pixel test.

Well alright, I defer to your expertise. I was just noting the discrepancies between this and my original U2711.

But you can adjust gamma in windows, without even needing a colorimeter.

No, you can't. That will and does nothing to the gamma the monitor internally is displaying. Changing it in Windows or your graphics driver does not improve black levels, Ive tried it.

This panel can clearly produce some decent black levels as you can see nice black levels when you switch to either Moive or Game settings in the OSD, but those setting lock and butcher the other color settings. Shame... frown.gif

@Grimster

Obviously you have a high standard. My question to you is this, for $400, what else would you choose? I have a fairly strict budget of $400 (probably shoudl be less, honestly). I just build a new rig, and I want a new monitor. I'm playing on a 720p 32" LCD TV (on my old PC). I'm going to have difficulty downgrading to 23" from 32".

I play primarily MMOs, but the occasional FPS isn't out of the question.

What would you suggest? I doubt the AG will bother me as much as some, honestly, but I thought the HP2511x was pretty nice looking. Anyway, interested to see your suggestions.

after reviewing the two monitors side by side, i'm sticking with the glossy. the anti-glare coating is much to strong when compared, I can literally see how it blurs the image. I went through this test to compare the monitors.

with the inversion test, the anti-glare showed flickering on 2b, 3, 4a, and 4b.
the glossy monitor showed flickering on 7a and 7b.

for response time, both monitors flickered at the same letters, but the glossy flicker was more prominent

Still in shock at the poor black levels this monitor produces due to no gamma control. This is TN quality black levels. Not good at all. Deep black level is one of the selling points of an IPS panel, I feel ripped off. Its going back next week.

Over all this monitor produces TN quality image with good viewing angles. I put my old Dell 1905 IPS monitor next to it and it but the Auria to shame. Oh well frown.gif

I mean, the black levels are so poor that I instantly noticed it the second I turned on the monitor.

No I don't have high standards. I have reasonable expectations of what to expect from IPS monitors as I have used many in the past.

The problem is that its obvious almost everyone in this thread has NEVER even seen or used an IPS monitor. I say again, the blacks on the Auris are of TN panel quality. If you dont want a glossy monitor look elsewhere because the AG filter on the Auria is HORRENDOUS. It is not an option to keep it on.

I never said overall the Auria is horrible. What you are getting is TN quality image blacks with IPS viewing angles and thankfully the input lag is low but only when you stay at 1440p resolution or use unscaled lower resolutions which bypasses the image scaler. Having any other resolution to fill the screen uses a scaler and causing some really bad input lag.

Also the OSD is an absolute joke on this monitor. The DCR and ECO modes are simply broken. DCR is out of control with it jumping to full brighness as soon as you turn it on and have even a tiny window open. Every ECO mode be it Movie, Text. Game ect other than standard creates a horrendously image. The color temp label are also wrong, obviously this was created by someone who does not speak english. The Warm setting is actually the the "normal" and the Normal is actually the "Warm"

Changing any image settings in the OSD other than color temp, colors, and contrast/brightness with ruin the image. Basically those are the only image setting that you can use in the OSD, Pretty cheesy.

Are you sure your computer is powerfull enough to handle 1440 res? Switch to lower graphical quality in your games and see if the stuttering persists.

Sadly, the effect persists at 1920 x 1080, the resolution I originally played at with my older Asus monitor.

As a layman, I am assuming what I see seems to be "motion blur" more than it is actual "ghosting" if there is an actual difference between those. I apologize, I am unfamiliar with the correct term for it, and can only describe it - when I strafe my character, the object of my view blurs out as if I am watching him on the side of a road as I pass quickly in a car. From what little I have read, it seems many IPS monitors struggle with this "motion blur"?

Like Grimster mentions above, I am one of those that have no previous experience with an IPS panel and lack a frame of reference to determine whether it is this monitor or all IPS monitors that disagree with me.

All I know is that is gives me, a consistent gamer with no previous issues, a mild bit of motion sickness when I play BL2 or PS2 for more than 30 minutes or so. But again, this is an entirely new rig for me, the benchmarking demonstrations do not appear to suffer the same effect and I know from the past that there is a bit of a "break-in period" for my eyes when I change out monitors. Those many variables are all nagging at me as I absolutely adore this panel.

I love the crisp, vibrant colors of this thing and the 1440 resolution. If there is anything I can attempt in order to keep it I'd love to know.

Also, are there any $400-ish non-IPS 1080 monitors that can deliver comparable colors and crispness of a 2560x1440 IPS?
