Yes, it is true some manufacturers have a better look out of the box than others, and that even changes within same model box by box. However, outside of those professional pre-calibrated displays, there isn't a manufacturer out there that really does a great job out fo the box.
I understand what you trying to say. But the Samsung worked straight out of the box for me, everything was right. The colors, gamma and contrast was just spot on, i really enjoyed that monitor. It was a thrill to game with.
Now, maybe you are right, and the VG278H would have been a nice monitor to game on after calibration, but honestly, why did not either the VG236H or the Samsung need to be calibrated? first of all i think the horrible anti glare coating is one thing to blame, but i dont think the anti glare Asus'es would be anywhere near the S27A950D or the VG236H i therms of PQ.
Just to have it clear. I have a Asus laptop and i am happy with the PQ, and i also have a Panasonic Plasma VT30 65" which have not been calibrated, and still the picture quality is bad ass.
I dont think you can blame calibration on this one.....Edited by Simkin - 4/20/14 at 4:26pm
