Download a profile, double click it so it copies the file to the correct Windows folder. Once that's done open Control Center ▸ Color Management and then add the profile to the system by clicking the Add button. Click on the Advanced tab and look for Display Calibration. Calibration curve loading is enabled by the Use Windows display calibration checkbox but it is not sensitive. This can be enabled by clicking on Change system defaults and then returning to the Advanced tab and then clicking the checkbox.

Hopefully that helps. You should see a huge difference with a calibrated icc profile.

Not without having a a software doing it. I am using DisplayFusion for multiscreen tools and I love it. It happens ot be on steam sale every now and then and I paid 7 or 8 euros (~$10) for mine. It also has a free version which gives you plenty of good options too and one of them is to have different wallpapers on each monitors. It supports different resolutions and all that so give it a try. I'm sure you'll like it.

Well it's some sort of glue so a bit, but it is easy to scrape off if it does.

I just got my monitor 30 min ago and have been using it. Fixed the stupid ICC profile issue. I needed to check a box in advance settings for it to actually work... Right now the ICC profile by NCX over on his review @120hz seems to be best adjusted for my monitor... The whitebalance seems to be most spot on.

Anyways I think I might have gotten the original glossy or something. It doesn't seem like glass to me... I'll post a pic

No image retention by the way works fine at 120hz, haven't tested any farther. Smooth as hell. 1 single dead pixel though... Can't even find it again though lol.

Ultramon is a must with any multi monitor setup. I guess it costs money I have an old *ahem* cracked version.

This one has a free version.

DisplayFusion does the same and based on the features on the site even more and costs less. Especially if you can grab it from a steam sale, which is quite likely around the Christmas time. It's available without steam too, but the steam version is the same as Pro and I got mine from steam for -75%. Software bought from steam won't require steam running either as it will be installed just as any other software and only they activation key and the downloaded files come from it. Oh and most of the base features are available in the free version as well and those are more than enough for most of the users. Just my two cents.

Yes thanks I have always used the copy of ultramon I have but saw display fusion via google. It does look like the better choice and the free version will probably do what he wanted. I did not realize steam sold software though thans for the tip.

So I got my xstar monitor and when plugging it in, it keeps shuffling through different colors. Anyone have this issue before? Anyone know what the problem could be?

It does this:
