At this stage, I just want to get the screen looking as good as possible. This includes any mods I might have to do.

Im looking all over the web for the best tape/cardboard mods on Youtube. I had the screen in pieces last night, as I removed the plastic base stand. I have mounted the screen on the wall.

Im going to take it apart again to see how straight the metal frame is. Gonna try straighten it as much as possible. Then add electical tape as well.

How comes you have to go through that process? Is there anything clearly wrong with the image you get?

Im not happy with the blacks that I get on Heroes of Newerth. I have some BLB on the bottom of the panel in the corners, so I am going to try and reduce that BLB as much as possible!!

The blacks on this screen arent really.... BLACK!! They more lightish grey which I find REALLY annoying. Will do what I can to fix it.

Obviously I cant do anything about the IPS glow. That comes with the technology.

Also why I am interested in your OSD settings for brightness and contrast.

I am trying to sort out what you consider black, since everyone agrees, the blacks on these PLS screens (NOT IPS which you seem to indicate)
is the blackest you can get. And if you are not getting your blacks in one game, then it's that game's colors that are off. try another calibrated ICS.

the technology that is refered to as IPS glow, isn't just IPS/PLS screens, it's every LCD, usually LED back-lighted. and is known as Backlight bleed.

As far as I know, 99% of the people with calibration tools and these monitors, didn't buy the multi-inputs for a reason. (i know I didn't, but I wanted 96/120hz)


TL;DR : the screens blacks are about as black as the come, if not, fix your software's colors.

No, that is incorrect. IPS glow and backlight bleeding is not the same thing, even though might look like it sometimes. IPS glow is usually yellow or slightly purple.

i stand corrected, I looked into and was about to edit, but at the same time, IPS glow is not only on IPS screens, so the term is still incorrect

You should ask accessorisewhole what the heck was the guy in their company that checks monitors doing. I had similar experience with aw before. They promised me to pay extra caution to blb but sent me a monitor with crazy crazy crazy blb. I posted blb photos on overclock, and got an angry email from them saying they would deny the return if i keep posting photo on forums, because what i did "hurt" their business. What the heck? They cannot even stand up on their words. Stay away from i were you.

by the way they will probably send you an email threaten to deny return/exchange since you posted photos and "hurt" their business. smile.gif

So you are confirming multi input screens have no chance to OC'? frown.gif
