Everyone keeps mentioning that the monitor is super bright out of the box, which is true. However I've lowered my brightness to 70 and I think anything lower than that would be too dim. I've seen some people set the brightness as low as 30. Unless of course, when gamma is adjusted a certain way it increases brightness as well?

My monitor looks great, but I don't have access to a colorimeter or a way to professional calibrate it. Can anyone give me a starting point that you've found works well so I can adjust from there?

I have an i1d3 color meter and I strongly believe everyone should not use ICC profiles or mess with gamma settings with this monitor. That only makes it worse.

Set contrast to 49 or 50 and brightness to 15-45. Leave it in user mode 100 R, G, B. The factory calibration is basically perfect. Any calibration I do simply causes banding or more color errors than it had out of the box. This screen has the best native gamma of any LCD I have measured, a perfect BT.1886. It goes through exactly 2.2 gamma at 50% IRE using 49 contrast and 25 brightness (25 seems like a sweet spot for brightness).

Unlike most other monitors the Swift has been very well calibrated at the factory.

Well, Ontrac successfully delivered my monitor (a day early in fact). Only had time to quickly check the box and it looked in decent shape. I am anxious to test it when I get home. It's nice having second swift for a side-by-side quality comparison.

awesome! amazon is awesome for this! I had them do that for my 980 because the box was torn all to hell and it was just thrown in a box way to big for it. Same thing with my Destiny collector's edition that got destroyed.

I funnel all my work purchases through my amazon account, and I buy a lot of stuff for myself there too, but not even close to the amount I spend for work, they probably think I'm a high valued customer, when really, if it wasn't me ordering this stuff from Amazon, it'd just be someone else at the office ordering it from Amazon redface.gif


Mine is same way for business and for personal and they give me money back all the time when I have issues. Ex: i got $10 one day shipping back on my swift warehouse deal last week because it was delayed 3 days after I ordered it. Just got back $5 just now because of the same thing with the site telling me one thing with one day shipping and order status being another day. They will take care of their customers.


Considering these things sell out in 5-15mins every time they come in stock... I wish I knew the profit margin I was giving asus.... I'm just curious how much money they have made off of not only from my 3, but off of everyone. Oh so curious! :-p

i like the glowing logo and the look of the ref cooler. That and well it blows air out the back and not in the case....i got good enough cooling either way, just if it can be dumped out the case, i'd rather have that.

The 980 reference cooler is probably the 2nd best ever, only the vapor chamber version tops it.

the cooling thing was what i had thought, i think i've only had a reference card from AMD and they're really loud at higher fan speeds unless you force a lower speed and are comfortable with its temps there. As for glowing logos i'm gonna be getting the gigabyte G1 cards to replace my current gigabyte 780 and those come with snazzy backplates and a glowing blue windforce logos biggrin.gif
