Anyways the vg248qe colors are horrible like everyone else says out of the box but after using my Spyder 4 elite to calibrate, the colors are the best you will see on any Tn panel. The gamma is spot on after calibration and the colors are very nice. I'm using this on a Evga 690 and its better then sex almost. Anyways I will share my calibration for this monitor if you guys need because colors suck major ass w/o proper settings. Spyder 4 creates a profile file and loads everything when windows starts, do I just find this file and share? I just bought this Spyder 4 so I have no idea how to share. The monitor itself is all default except brightness at 23 witch is 120 cadence or whatever. Thanks

yes, that would be helpful.

My BenQ seems to have darker yellow at the top and they get washed out the further down the screen you go.

No monitor is the same, so color profiles look different on each monitor, even on the same model.

I also hope to provide some downloadable ICC profiles based on a S4E calibration for both AMD and Nvidia users. Because games like to use their own gamma curves and some ignore or misinterpret ICC data I will only be testing the monitor's colour and contrast performance using the naked OSD settings. I know some people like to use ICC profiles for desktop viewing if the image isn't satisfying to them without, so these could help a bit with this one. Obviously these won't be perfect for everyone as each monitor is different. smile.gif

When you review the XL2411t did you make any ICC profiles?

Yeah the file will be saved into C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color and then people can load them with by right-click desktop > screen resolution > advanced settings > color management > color management > select appropriate display device in list > check "use my settings for this device" and if the file is in the correct place click add and select it from the list.

To those asking, the best lightboost monitors are the XL2411T and the VG248QE, in terms if image quality and price as well.

What I was trying to say is it's difficult to understand why LCD technology hasn't improved (IQ wise) in the last 8 years since I bought my monitor, the only killer looking TN panel that looks as good as an IPS is the HP 2511x and the HP 2711x according to this source! The colors pop and it gives the IPS monitors a run for the money, however it's not even close to being as fast as 120Hz monitors!
