Unlike my Crossover this NEEDS a profile, which is always bad because profiles continue to be incompatible with windows photo viewer (weird dithering and chromatic effects, or slow photo browsing, it's always bugged one way or another) and since there's never been a decent third party photo viewer that means you're just screwed, forced to run multiple viewers for multiple things. Right now I'm on fast picture viewer and nexus.
Another observation is the panel itself is perfect. Even colors, even though they're not naturally calibrated like my AW crossover, and no bad pixels or blemishes. This means I'll probably invest time into modding it to fix the bleed since at least it has potential. Or maybe I'll just keep the crossover. This thing even with a profile isn't impressing me with the IQ the way the crossover does.
I can't really complain about the base. Side to side wobble is worse than the 27q but better front to back.
The matte coating is only slightly visible if you focus. It's also only about 70% effective on glare. I wouldn't list it as a pro.
Oh and this bowing thing is giving me flash backs to the round crt days. I can't really picture what would be causing it going by the teardowns I've seen. It looks like the entirety of the housing, front and back panel, is bent by design. I can't be the only person to notice something that obvious?Edited by derfer - 5/28/13 at 1:56pm
