My Dell U2312HM (IPS) colors are worse than my Samsung BX2350 (TN)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I bought a Dell U2312HM monitor recently and, having my the two side by side, the color and the contrast of my TN panel seems way better than my Dell IPS one. On my BX2350, black look like black and white are white, while on that Dell monitor everything seems to have a "greenish" filter, whatever I put as a setting.

I bought an IPS panel to have something better than my old one, but for now it's quite the other way around worriedsmiley.gif

Anyone could help me with how calibrating it, because no setting seems to get rid of this "filter" and even all white seem to have some grain?
Thank you!

Thank, it helped a little, but I think the real culprit is that uneven tint of my monitor. The right side is a "greenish" color while the black/color on the left side of the panel is more "white"... I guess it comes with cheap IPS panel to have a horrible uneven tint on the monitor sadsmiley.gif

Is it common of IPS panel, or I was just unlucky with that one?

Here is a photo I took with my phone (black screen)

Say hello to the terrible beyond belief anti glare coating that too many panels use today?

Although yes part if your problem looks like the backlight from the photo. Doesn't look fixable. RMA?

Ah, the anti-glare, I hate glossy but this is just too agressive, but yes, the "green" backlighting is the one I'm most unhappy of.
Do you think that Dell will accept an RMA for a backlighting issue tough? I'm looking trough their warranty and found no information about it...

EDIT
After tweaking the monitor color a little bit, all I must say is thank you! That custom profile + some tweak made the monitor so much more vibrant, I'm starting to understand why people like IPS thumb.gif

Nothing to do with anti glare, it's a bad panel. RMA.
