Hi. I don't have the Acer but I do have the Swift and wanted to ask what exactly does a profile such as this one do, or what does it change?
All I did to calibrate my Swift was what they did on Tomshardware which is set brightness to 44, Contrast to 50 (or 49 which is supposed to fix some issue or other) and changed the RGB a little.
I'm a noob when it comes to monitor calibration but I'm always thinking that there is more that can be done to get this picture looking better.
Two things I wanted to add to this...
1. I thought I saw someone ask about if G-sync really makes much of a difference so wanted to say that it does, a tremendous one. I wasn't too sure about it either at first but now I can't go back to no G-sync.
I feel like 50fps with G-sync on feels smoother than 90 FPS without it.
2. I'm sure the IPS Acer has better colors, I mean that is what IPS is known for vs TN. I would like to know exactly how much better those colors are but I think the only way for me to see that difference is to put the two side by side. In those two pics of them standing side by side the Acer does look better of course but the Swift being a TN must be viewed from directly in front and that is not the case in the pic.
I've always wanted an IPS monitor after seeing how much better my friends Ultrasharp monitor colors were over my plain Dell 24 inch a long time ago but ended up with another TN in the Swift. I do like it, a lot, I mean it's much better than my old monitor but yea no IPS.
PS. I remember watching a review where JJ said that gamers won't really notice a difference in color on the Swifts 8bit TN panel vs an IPS panel. bet that was BS eh
oh and yea a Swift with an IPS panel would sweeeeet
