At the moment I'm going to assume you're using drivers from your previous monitor or generic.

Do you use AMD cards or Nvidia? You can try to adjust color settings in the Nvidia control panel.

Again I'll have to ask what's your brightness, contrast and what is your preset?

Edit - oops your not previous poster. You seeing same thing?

I'd like to invite U2713HM owners recently posting to join the club by filling out the app on OP page HERE and submitting a pic with name in screen shot as proof.

Also if your a gamer the [Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club which is a great source of info for 1440p gaming questions and as new games come out, best settings, experiences etc...

Ordered mines last night from newegg while they had the 10% off on top of sale price...Was going to get the U3014 but it seems to have too many issues and was about $420 more....I placed the order 2 seconds before the 10% off code expired. If it ships from NJ I should have it Tuesday. Will update once I get it and probably ask for help and reccomendations as far as settings. This will be my fist 1440p display biggrin.gif

thx for welcome..

Yes I downloaded the driver and Monitor Application .

First of all I tried all Preset modes to see if one of them will make a difference but nothing helps.
After that I tried to make custom settings - no difference.

Now I use Standart mode(Brightness 45%, Contrast 70%) and there is same result.

Hmmm - I'm hoping Mjolnir125 will log in today. He's our club guru for this monitor. He'd know what's up if anyone.

I'm not leaning toward defected just yet but if we can't figure it out......exchange might be inevitable. Shouldn't be experiencing what you described.

I hope Mjolnir 125 will return because the store from where I bought this monitor has 10 days return policy ...
My 5 years old laptop displays dark content better than this monitor. frown.gif
Ofcourse the colors are amazing on u2713hm but this problem it's bad of all
post #527 of 3079
Do you have trouble seeing dark content because it is too dark, or because it is washed out? Does this happen all over the screen or just in certain areas? The game and movie presets have dynamic contrast that artificially dims the screen when viewing dark content, but since you said it happens on all presets I don't think that is the issue. What is the laptop monitor you are comparing it to?

I have trouble seeing dark content because it is too dark. It is not about certain areas or about the monitor in entirely.
If monitor is displaying something what was conceived to be dark colored - he makes it darker (almost black) and you barely can see it.
EX: in dark movie scenes I hardly can distinguish details. Even in bright scenes if a shadow falls on a certain object or on face of a hero, the object becomes too dark and hard to be to discerned

- I have disabled dynamic contrast.
- My laptop have an ordinary, stupid glossy display(TN). smile.gif

I really wish this monitor would go on sale. I saw it was at $550 a couple months back, but I had no money then.

I would love to pick up a second one for studying. Feels gross when I am away from home and have to use a 1080P monitor.
