Gray banding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a Dell XPS 13 laptop with a FHD IPS display and noticed some banding in gray gradients, e.g. the speedtest.net testing page gradient, gray gradients in Steam desktop app, and the gray background in the areas flanking the page in Microsoft Word 2010. Is there any way around this?

And what about http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php (viewed on Chrome or IE)? In Steam (and I believe Word, not sure as I now use Word 2013) I see banding even on a high-end PLS model with 14-bit LUT and a 'true 8-bit' VA - the textures themselves are likely banded, in other words. I even see some minor banding on speedtest.net.

Hmm, my old laptop may have had such a crappy display (and a heavy matte coating) that I didn't notice the banding before. Where it's really noticeable to me is word, thus I was concerned. I'll to check on my desktop monitor when I get back into town.

EDIT: I do notice some very minor, evenly spaced banding in the lagom gradient test.

I got a chance to evaluate is using passmark's monitor evaluation program (i.e. a bunch of fullscreen pictures) and shows banding in the gray and green gradients. I guess just a flaw in the panel.
