QX2710 2013-04-28 D6500 2.2 HQ XYZLUT+MTX - 96Hz.zip 434k .zip file

Just installed it... I'm confused on why both yours and cors gamma looks great, but there is a noticeable difference. His makes my whites more reddish, and yours makes them more blueish.

You showed the Auto and Menu buttons, I just wondered if they actually do anything.

I tested them also. They do nothing




All the posted color calibrations look off on my screen. Some are too cool, some to dull, some make colors look off, etc. I guess i am unlucky that my panel has so much variance. How much do color calibrators cost?

I get some buzzing at 120hz. I can hear it, but it's much less noisy than the buzzing on my Catleap. But it's there if you listen for it, especially on a white page. Not sure if anyone else has got this monitor to 120hz, opened an all white page (wikipedia or google images for some reason were the loudest with my Catleap, but it doesn't make a difference with my Qnix) and put their ear to the screen.

Tried it, no buzzing here, and no scan lines on this monitor, my catleap has very visible scan lines at 120hz, but the deliner program takes care of that, at least in windows

I hear a light buzzing, but I did get scan lines at 120hz so I had to use LCD Reduced and "Reduce DVI Frequency" in CCC to get rid of them. I think 120hz is fine now, haven't seen any scan lines yet. But this probably means that my board can't really handle 120hz, or it does but it really has to struggle.

On a side note, I've been using UDPixel to get rid of this stuck pixel for days now whenever I'm on the computer and this little freaking thing won't go away! mad.gif Does that mean that there's a very good chance it won't ever un-stuck?

Wow just calibrated with my new i1 Display Pro and my original from dream-seller looks fantastic now. My mouse cursor is no longer red thumb.gif

Monitor: QNIX 2710 Glossy
Refresh rate: 100 Hz
Brightness: 10 clicks from bottom
Luminance: 120
Gamma: 2.2

For my red-hue monitor:

For my non-red-hue monitor:

I get buzzing from the speakers when they are at high volume. I recommend to have the speakers turned all the way down and use a different audio output

Neither looks neutral then? Not really that surprising actually. Oh, and here's the reason why you can see similar "gamma values" on that website, but still see perceptual differences:

Gamma values specify the luminosity "curve" or, as simply as I can put it, how fast it gets brighter as you move away from black. Gamma doesn't affect the brightness of your screen; black and white are still the same brightness, it just affect the scale in-between them. There is no single gamma value, for white or for red, green, or blue when you're measuring it on your monitor; that website just helps you guess at an average of sorts. To get your gamma profile, you take measurements at a bunch of different levels ranging from all the way black to all the way white (or red/green/blue if testing gamma of a single subpixel instead of the combined grayscale gamma) and then you compare the SLOPE of each point (rate of increase of brightness at that point) to the slope at that brightness on the perfect gamma curve you are targeting (2.2 usually, 2.4 for dark movie settings). SO, you can see that gamma (expected slope) could be way off at any point, and maybe not so bad at another. There are serious serious limitations with calibrations done via that website, but it is the absolute best your're going to get without any equipment. Gamma and grayscale calibration serves a purpose, but it's not everything. It's really hard to comprehend all the ways a monitor can be "off", it's insane. Gamma only deals with luminosity, there's also saturation and hue, and those aren't really linear simple things either. So, combine them all and you will never be satisfied again, and never have a truly perfectly calibrated monitor. So, yeah a single averaged (and eye-balled) gamma value won't be able to represent the nuances of what you see. What'll really blow your mind is that my two monitors don't look the same even after each goes through really complex calibrations for 3hrs a piece. You'd think you could make them look the same, but you can't. That's why people still talk about IPS vs PLS vs VA and crap like that; if you could just calibrate away the differences, then you would!

Man, I just killed an internet tree on that long message. I really do try to keep these things short; I just have a blab problem.

96 currently on my 560ti, but I was running 130 on my 680L before I had to send that in for RMA.

For those who have opened up the monitor, is it possible to remove the silver frame to apply electrical tape without taking out the whole panel?
