[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 391

Anyone figure out what "MNT Status" is for the LED lights? No explanation in the manual, or anywhere for that matter.

That is monitor status. The color changes as you enable and disable G-Sync.

IMO the bottom lights are useless. For bias lighting, you want it all around the monitor.

Oh cool so the color will change when you start up a game then? I loved this feature with my RoG swift when it first came out but driver updates like a month after release made the LED color permanently red.

Yes, you could use it for that and maybe turn the LED's down to the lowest setting. I just use G-Sync mode on the desktop too as I've seen no drawbacks.

Alright cool, yeah I also use it on my desktop w/ my Swift and its great. Although I did like the LED changing color so i know that GSync is working properly in game.

Hardware: i1Display Pro
Software: i1Profiler 1.6.1

Alright, I've been running some color profiling tests and calibrations for a couple hours now. I started with stock...then used some of the TFT Central profile results....before ultimately arriving at some pretty spot on results for my monitor.

First of all, with my RGB set as the TFT guys set theirs (brightness 34, contrast 50, red 49, blue 49, green 51), it was pretty spot on.

But I had the i1Profiler automatically set the optimum brightness and RGB using their Automatic Display Control (ADC) feature, I came out with some similar but slightly more pleasing results.

My settings are this
Profile: User
Brightness: 35
Contrast: 45
RGB: 52, 49, 49

Download my .icc profile HERE

Here are the results I'm getting with the above:




Translation: This monitor calibrated very very well.

I calibrated and recalibrated multiple times using multiple variations and the above came out the most accurate for me. Some people have made the comment that color calibration is "subjective"...that really couldn't be any further from the truth. Calibration is very objective...you may end up prefering a color tint, but that doesn't make it accurate. The above is the most accurate for my display. YMMV.

Enjoy.

(btw...isn't it time we start a separate owner's thread for crap like this?)

Alright....need some help here

I can't set my display to 100Hz.

Using a 980 Ti Lightning with the latest drivers.

I go to the monitor menu...select Overclock....set Enable to 'On'...set the rate to 100Hz....then Apply and reboot (the monitor).

When I get back into windows, I can select 100Hz in the GeForce control panel...but when I go back into the monitor settings, Overclock is set back to off with a rate at 75Hz?!?!

***? Ideas?
