I find having it higher lessens the amount of times you try to shoot people only to have your bullets blocked by something invisible.

The colors were really set up for higher brightness levels and you need about 60 to get good colors out of this thing. That is also eye scorching and I can't tolerate that. It doesn't help that the AG coating on this thing throws off colors depending on the angle you look at it. The colors on the bottom of my monitor are different from the top. Moving my head up and down changes it. It really throws you off.

So using standard mode.
Brightness: 25
Contrast: 60
Color temps: R 90 / G 100 / B 94
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 40 (although I may mess with this)

My display driver has it set to 6500k for color temperature.

The problem with using the windows calibration tool is it's all subjective. Simply using the tool wont automatically set your monitor for the proper colors. When it tells you to find the best shade of gray and shows you the proper version of it on a uncalibrated monitor doesn't work out very well. I really don't want to drop the 100 on a Spyder, that's why I was hoping someone with a Spyder could calibrate their monitor using it and then share the settings with all of us.

The brightness and contrast tools were helpful though.

The calibration tools works because it gives you the colours you think you want to see. You can often tell if your colours are washed out, and it provides an easy platform to work out what is wrong and fix it. With the gray shades, yes you are on an uncalibrated monitor, but you can easily move the RGB sliders and check out the difference it makes. You can easily tell then whether the grays are an incorrect hue. Helps a lot, especially if you can see something wrong with the image, but can't quite pinpoint the problem

Okay, now that I've got a few hours with the monitor (outside gaming), it's become very obvious the picture isn't that bad if gamma is set correctly.

Out-of-box there is no way in hell any on-monitor settings can help. The gamma is just terrible, using http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php#gamma-test-2.png it would probably be 0.9-1.0 if the scale went that far. Windows built in calibration tool doesn't even have enough variance to correct this. The gamma slider completely to the bottom results in ~2.0.

I'm just happy knowing I can finally do something to correct this terrible image quality... but I'm now concerned something is off with my panel since nobody else has mentioned gamma.

Can anyone else confirm the god awful gamma on this monitor?

Yep gamma is god-awful, confirmed it here.

What you want is to use the nvidia control panel to set the gamma as that has a much wider range of values compared to the Win7 calibration tool. My gamma looks miles better now.

Got it bang on 2.2 on Lagom, of course depending on where my head is. You should be aware that the gamma variance of any TN panel is humongous depending on viewing angle, just try this: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/viewing_angle.php

Excellent! but not really... wink.gif Just glad knowing mine isn't way out of spec.

EDIT: Yeah the little lagom.nl suite is the first thing I go to on any monitor. It's a TN panel though, we knew that IQ would suck long before buying.
