I'm no expert so do we use the disk that comes with it? Adjust on the monitor or use windows
Also using an nvidia card
Upgrading from a HP2159m, so hoping this is huge upgrade. Only downside is it isn't glossy, but sure i can get used to that.
I am no expert either, I will share what I did though. There is the monitors settings which you change on the actual monitor via the buttons on the bottom and the nvidia control panel settings. I used an earlier persons post calibrations for the monitor buttons which I quoted in an earlier response some pages back, and then boosted the contrast to 80% and digital vibrance to 60% in the Nvidia control panel settings. It still looks like **** compared to my old TN panel which is a 4 year old Gateway FHD2400 24" 16:10 1920x1200 GLOSSY film. The 120hz/144hz 1msGTG and low input lag is where its at for this monitor, it looks terrible. You will not be able to calibrate it in anyway to make it look decent.
People need to post the Nvidia control panel/monitor settings NOT in LB mode that achieved, in their opinion, the best colors etc. I know Vega posted one about LB mode, but LB mode seems to be a 50/50 with people not having annoying issues.
There is no way around the inferiority of 16:9 1080P (x1080 should be a slur, x1200 is SO much better) and this absolutely disgraceful matte finish.Edited by experttact - 2/3/13 at 10:20am
