I'm considering this monitor for media playback, has anyone underclocked it to 47.952/48/59.994hz?

So far I've only had a few minutes with it. I just can't seem to get the calibration correct. Out of the box it has a severe white washed-out look with the default settings. I can drop the brightness to 0 and it even still seems a little too light on the blacks. I had to change Gamma from 2.0 to 2.4 (which DROPS the brightness, despite showing a higher number), and that helped quite a bit on the blacks, but still not perfect. For example, using the Windows built-in calibration tool never showed the "X" to blend in with the black background in the brightness calibration screen, no matter how low I went with brightness or gamma. Hue and Saturation seem pretty good at the default of 50. I increased contrast from 50 to 72, but it could certainly still be off since I'm not completely sure that the proper brightness/gamma is set. Of course, this is my first AH-IPS, I've only had TN's before, so maybe this is actually just a trait of AH-IPS and I've been used to too dark images for a long time?

Overall

Absolutely great buy, even if I find out FreeSync is not working. Even with a bit of the washed out look slightly remaining after all my adjustments, I still have quite a bit of more calibrating to do and I believe I may be able to resolve it. However, if this is as good as the image gets I'm still MORE than pleased. I also used a lot of monitors with PWM in the past, and eventually had to get polarized glasses for working all day on the computer. So far I don't have any strain using this monitor and it is likely because it doesn't use PWM.

Hey Kaiser,

I had the exact same issue when I first hooked up my UHD490, blacks look far too bright, washed out in dark scenes, I thought it was colour calibration but I tried the ICC profiles for the other ones and no dice. I began to think that it was Gamma not being set correctly because using this http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php I'd see nothing from 0-3 and then 4 was very bright. I blame the AMD Crimson drivers because when i went into the video settings they all had the washed out look except for "outside" mode which looks brighter in general but hasn't got the washed out look, and that only changed it for DXVA video output ie: VLC player and not across the whole desktop.

To fix it, i went into the Radeon Settings panel > Preferences > Radeon Additional Settings > Display Color and set it to use EDID. I also went into Desktop Colour in the additional settings panel and Dragged the Gamma around a bit, its now set to 1.00 but i think it was stuck somewhere else even though it said it was at 1.00 already...

Now I can mess with all the colour settings and whatnot and its fine, doesn't have that washed out look... Hope this helps if anyone else is experiencing the same thing!

Cheers,
Myshadow

Apart from the size, is there any other differences to the UHD430? Tossing up between this, the 43, and the Crossover 43..

Also compare to the AMH 40" monitors with VA panels?

I've seen the Phillips 40" - was cross shopping that but ended up with the Dell 34".

Looked nice enough, but think I'd prefer IPS tbh
post #77 of 156
IPS looks natural but not as inky as VA. However, I also prefer IPS for color accuracy.

What do you mean VA is inky?

Inky means the color uniformity of VA is better than IPS in general. Get one VA and IPS side by side to have a visual check you will easily notice especially in full sceen red or green or blue... etc.

How are the colors on WM UHD490, compared to VA panels ?
Is it worth to switch from Samsung 4K TV 6550 40 inches, to this one ?
