I think that image speaks for itself.

ROFL, this should be a add for cateract surgery. Seriously, that's what this looks like. You can't even compare this to wearing glasses cause it doesn't make things blurry, it simply washes all the 'life' out of the picture. I couldn't help but laugh at that photo.
Vega do you have a guide for doing this? How durable is the VG248QE polarizer too? Is it just like the other LCD you dissembled?

A little bit, but this is due to the change in refresh rate. It puts more strain on your eyes because you're using them more. It goes away after a few days. If you can't get used to it consider returning the panel. The same thing happens when you go to a higher refresh rate back on CRTs. You have more information to process and use your eyes more in order to do it.
Colors also change slightly. The gamma is completely off on the monitor and the monitor is too bright by default. I'm using a gamma of .75 and a brightness of 25. Check your display color properties to change the gamma.
I tried the ICM profiles from both Crazy and Syndra and it doesn't seem to change anything. Colors are still really washed out and the gamma is still all messed up. Are the profiles working or is something up with my computer?Edited by Bensam123 - 2/16/13 at 8:31pm
