[Official] Dell U2713HM: 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy IPS Club - Page 25

post #241 of 3079
The other thing I noticed about mine is the colors looked washed out, dull, and not as vibrant compared to other monitors. Is this how a calibrated monitor supposed to look like? It looks great when looking at photos. But when I'm just browsing webpages, that's when the colors look washed out.

Standard mode. I left the contrast at default of 75 but I had to turn down the brightness to 45.

Do you have auto mode kicking in changing settings on you? Hard to see sometimes. When switching from movies, games to browsing it may auto change the pre-set.

I'm using 'Custom / 6500k' and it's pretty nice.

The colors should definitely not seem "washed out" unless you are comparing it to a Plasma; this monitor has an 8 bit IPS panel that is quite good at doing vibrant colors. Try all of the settings, although all of them except standard, custom, and sRGB are kind of weird and do funky things (like raise sharpness or enable dynamic contrast).

Colours wise you won't get better from a 1440p panel, if you go for a glossy monitor it may be slightly better but not from a semi-glossy panel.

nope not on auto mode. When I manually switch to other modes like movie I can see the colors become vibrant again. But I thought standard mode should look good. Besides the yellow bleeding on the bottom left, this could maybe another problem. I'm going to get it exchanged.

I have a Dell 2209WA with an eIPS and a Samsung 2693HM with TN and both have vibrant colors compared to my new U2713HM

Cool. Wanted to make sure you knew about the Dell Display Menu auto mode I got mixed up with that confused me.

If you have that lower left hand bleed showing enough to see in blacks, movies or gaming I'd call today and get the A01 revision sent to you.

It is Rev A01, it came last Friday. I had high hopes that Rev A01 would fix some problems.
