LoL

Monitor came slightly bent and one of the screw holes for the panel wasn't set correctly, so I had to remove one of the screws to make the panel straight.

I would have taken pictures and shown it to fedex...

There is always some variability in the panels, which could explain part (or even all) of it -- and which is why I hesitate to post the profiles I generate for my monitor. The picture you posted does look more pink than it should, but without hardware measurements it's also hard to say how well the 3020MDP on the left was calibrated. The Spyder series of colorimeters is also notorious for high unit-to-unit variability, and so I would be weary of using the 3020MDP as a reference and "eyeballing" it.

To give you an idea of how poorly the 27Q LED profile performs on my 30Q5 monitor, after installing it I measure a white point error of 30+ deltaE throughout the gray scale (red levels are off by 40%).

One thing I noticed this weekend while tweaking my calibration is that increasing the brightness setting on the monitor itself nudges the white point slightly towards D65. So I've obtained better results by maxing out the monitor brightness and calibrating from there. I'm not sure if this will hold for other 30Q5 units, but it's worth a shot.

I've attached an updated color profile below:

Crossover 30Q5 - 2013-05-13.zip 11k .zip file


Make sure you max out brightness via the monitor controls prior to using this profile.

Here are my post-calibration measurements:
Code:
Verification results:
Brightness error = -0.527398 cd/m^2 (is 135.472602, should be 136.000000)
White point error = 0.540734 deltaE
Maximum neutral error (@ 0.087885) = 1.309436 deltaE
Average neutral error = 0.500691 deltaE
Number of measurements taken = 100
The instrument can be removed from the screen.

If this still does not look good, the best thing to do would be to borrow your friend's colorimeter and run it directly on your setup smile.gif

Thanks for that man, but unfortunately that new profile seems even worse off than the last! It's a LOT darker, more red and with less contrast than the last 2 profiles. I always run at 100% brightness.

If I hold up a piece of good quality white A4 paper and solid colour swatches next to my screen it becomes apparent that she screen is completely pink (so its not just me being used to the other calibration). I think we may have 2 different panels!

I would love to use my friends colorimeter, but unfortunately he doesn't have it with him any more.

Cheers for all the help though, I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of this eventually.

Can any other users chime on what's going on the icc profiles / panels?

My two just came in about an hour ago. Sweet jesus, these things absolutely dwarf my Apple 27" Cinema Display. I got two Perfect Pixel's from Lightnspace and they are both in great condition. No dead pixels, no stuck pixels and a hell of a lot less light bleed than my Apple as well. This was a great decision.

I lucked out when I ordered from AW and got a perfect one... I'm in love with this big bad boy.

AGREED. The stands do feel pretty flimsy though and I don't like that you can't rotate them. Next time I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket, I'll probably get a different stand. Any suggestions for one that sits on the desk Like this one, except less ugly?

I'd prefer to spend a minimal amount, but I am fine with paying more if there's a real reason to do so.

What do you mean you cant rotate them? Mine does just fine?

I just got mine. I "upgraded" from a 27' achieva. This thing is big. I go however find input lag though. Maybe because my frame rate isnt as good as before..Or something. I used a few of the color files you guys posted but I didnt like them. I used calibrize and im happy with it. I'll still tweak it. I play mostly RPG/FPS on my pc. Skyrim looked great and so did guild wars 2. I do however think I'll need a new video card or sli soon. I'm using a gtx 580 right now. I love the monitor. I think the colors are better than my other one. But its a big monitor. I dont think I'd want anything bigger. lol

After playing guild wars 2 most of the night it "seems" like this monitor is either flickering or skipping frames? Its at 60hz, is there a way to move it to 75 or 100 hz?

I can rotate the actual screen, but I can't turn them left-to-right. Does that make sense?

Also, I'm currently writing up a big review of the whole experience from Lightnspace. Should be done in a day or so and I'll post then.
