2713HM: sRGB Preset, Contrast: 70, Brightness: 55, Gamma: PC
The contrast ratio is much better on the Dell, so much to the point that I'm feeling buyer's remorse. I'm having thoughts of returning both panels and trying my luck with another U2713HM (hoping to score a panel with decent back light uniformity).
The backlight uniformity on the Viewsonic is much better. My U2713HM had a huge glowing spot on the bottom right.
You can turn the Viewsonic's power LED off, I'm not sure if this was mentioned in the reviews but is a nice feature.
The touch buttons on the Viewsonic are extremely sensitive and difficult to see in low light situations. If you're going to be changing your settings in the dark often, I recommend the Dell for it's superior OSD and controls.
Apart from the OSD and touch controls, the Viewsonic feels better built than the Dell. When you squeeze the bezel the Dell creaks, but the Viewsonic doesn't make a sound. The Viewsonic monitor can also raised almost twice as high as the Dell.
In terms of speed, I haven't noticed a difference. Extremely unscientific, but I'm not able to land my Tekken combos consistently like I can on my ASUS VG236H.Edited by tomato16 - 3/23/13 at 3:29am
