The asus guy is correct. RMA it.
That's a known defect with some samples.
Some people on these forums will say that "that's normal" or "you can't trust lagom' but don't listen to them.
The right way to test gamma on a TN is to put the '2.2' line in the middle of the screen, then align your eyes to the middle of the screen and move back about 3-4 feet. That's the correct way to test for gamma. Do NOT listen to trolls who say that "you can't accurately test gamma on a TN. YOU CAN. Even though it has color shift, you can at least test for a direct view.

THE MONITOR IS DEFECTIVE.

No TN should have a gamma at 1.4.
It's a TN Panel. TN is TN.

Every TN Should have a default gamma between 2.1 to 2.3.
And those are for models without gamma adjustments.
Anything else is UNACCEPTABLE.

Set it to 60hz refresh rate, because 60hz is the target refresh rate for every TN.

If Lagom does not show 2.1 to 2.3 gamma, and there are no gamma adjustments in the OSD, then RMA the screen. Whatever TN model it is.

My screen is super fine with these settings for TN.


Thanks, I'll give it a try tonight along with some other solutions I found earlier in the thread.

Actually the profile from PCMonitors almost gets it there but makes color banding more pronounced so I am not yet sure if should leave it on.

It's a shame really that a monitor this expensive doesn't come better out of the box.

New Witcher 3 drivers still have G-sync on desktop.

Nvidia replied about the drivers issue and the Swift's Led. It's because they did some changes for the upcoming W10 and there are no plans to change the Swift's led behavior any time soon. You can thank Nvidia about that.

Making change in the Nvidia Control Panel or using ICC profiles introduces color banding.

Seems it's just the light now as far as I can tell. I can disable Gsync on a per program basis as opposed to having to disable it entirely if I want it off for a specific program

I see banding only in movies with 720-1080p resolution at dark places.My screen is awful if i don't adjust the gamma from the nvidia control panel.Is there any options i can make only from the screen to make it better? I tried lowering the brightness but the colors and the gamma especially at the bottom of the screen are so bad.

Something funny I noticed. If you put your contrast at 50 or higher, there may be a green discoloration on some text during motion. Guess what, when you put it literally at 49 or lower, it completely goes away. When contrast is at 50 or higher, I notice a slight green reflection on my wooden desk, and it literally just goes away when turning it to 49. Seems very odd. For me I put the contrast at 45 atm.
post #4930 of 6154
LOL
That was discussed many pages ago. But yeah.
This monitor has an inversion issue that is different than some other TN panels.
Contrast 49 is at the end of the white clipping point. When you reach 50, you start getting clipping, and that brings out the inversion issue -really- badly, worse than the video examples of it with lower contrast.

On the 27" Benq (2720Z not 2730Z), the white clip point is 51 (not 50), although 43 is the correct delta balance. Tom's hardware has it at 43)

But good find.
