That's the profile, if anyone could try it out with these settings, that would be great.

user mode. Brightness 74, contrast 75.

color>advanced settings, gain r 46 g 48 b 43
offset r 48 g 48 b 52

That is all. Looking a hell of a lot better. Pretty close to perfect actually.


I have to say, I'm torn between these settings and the ones on the original post. Decisions decisions.. biggrin.gif

Alright, I finally decided to pull the trigger on the Asus. I was considering the Viewsonic and the Dell as well, but the Dell seems to have more issues (cross-hatching, buzzing, and image retention in addition to the usual QC problems like BLB and pixel defects) and the Viewsonic is almost $200 more in Canada.

I ordered from Futureshop ($622), so if I get a bad one or the PWM bothers me, I can easily return it to a local store and get a new one or try another model.

I've read this whole thread, and it seems that on balance PB278Q users are satisfied, so I'm feelin' hopeful!

I will definitely be trying these settings once I get my recently replaced monitor back. Should be coming in tom evening, I never even calibrated the first one. So I cant wait to see the difference.

I got my monitor today (late arrival). There aren't any dead pixels that I can see. I do, however, have some backlight bleed in the upper right hand corder of the screen. I can see why it is so common. Just putting a little uneven pressure on the panel results in this.

I think the colours are nice, but I was expecting to be blown away, but wasn't. They are great though. Too early to tell if PWM will be a bother, but so far I don’t feel any pain or tension.

I ended up paying 605 dollars for this and am torn on whether or not it was worth it over a Korean model. The Korean I wanted (Crossover 2720MDP is better equipped for multimedia devices and can be had for about 420 dollars)

Likes:
+ Asus warranty
+ Low power usage (vs most Korean panels)
+ VGA (I have some in-wall wiring I want to use)
+ No dead pixels
+ 2560x1440 seems to be just about right for a 27" monitor. 1080p is just too little
+ AG filter is nice. Would have had a hard time with a glossy Korean

Dislikes:
- VGA doesnt seem to accept higher than 1080p even though my video card supports 2560x1440 (what is the point in having it if it cant accept native resolution)
- Back-light bleed, seems to be unavoidable. Not bad enough to be worth the trouble of exchange.
- Uncertainty on whether this is 200 dollars "better" than a Korean

I've had mine for about 5 months now and love it! I used the settings from the OP and that made a huge difference. I have not played with it since but have been debating if i could get better color if i did. No light bleed or any other issues with mine.

Just type in color management in the start menu, tick the box that says use my settings for this device, then click add and add the asus200 icc profile, then click set as default and restart computer. Also download monitor calibration wizard, when you open monitor calibration wizard you should see it has a different curve to the default curve if windows has loaded the icc profile, where it says profile name just call it asus200 click save, then in the drop down menu you can now select asus200 click load and check the persistent profile box so it forces the icc profile on smile.gif

Here is what I see tonight. Using my cell phone camera to take this. I corrected it so that it more accurately reflects what I see.

75% brightness


To compare, this monitor replaced a Samsung 920WM I got for $20.00, used to retail for $140.00

100% brightness
