Anyway, i was more impressed by the response times and decent viewing angles. 3K CR? Wouldn't mind it. I'm probably getting one as soon as it's available in my area or amazon ES. Thing's so cheap, i'd probably even consider trying to remove the coating.

I know that review. It looks like VA hasn't made improvements in the last 6 years. You need to view the monitor at 40° to have the real picture. I am not interested in cherry picked review samples.

This is my first foray with a VA monitor, but compared to my TN it's far far better in the gamma shift/color shift department. There is still some there, but you really need to be looking for it or looking at it from a really wide angle, meanwhile on TN the color and gamma shift is always obvious, more so if you like to slouch and view the thing anywhere that isn't head on. There is a small degree of black crush, but its hardly an issue in practice, i first calibrated to 2.2 power law gamma and quickly learned that wasn't the best idea as i was unable to distinguish the square blocks before 5 on lagom's black level test. I quickly went ahead and made a BT.1886 calibration and it quickly made those other blocks visible and the gamma curve was exactly where it should be.

For $160 it's really not a bad monitor at all, if i had to choose this or an IPS with similar specs and price it would easily be this if only to avoid any unwanted glow from the IPS. It covers about 98% of the sRGB color space, there is no gradient banding of any kind, and i was able to push it to 73hz with automatic timings. I backed it down to 72hz for smoother playback of 24fps content, and confirmed that it does not skip frames.

Have you considered the HP 25XW? It's got virtually no glow for normal viewing angles, and the coating is much nicer.

No point for me since if i decide to keep this BenQ i'll most likely take the matte coating off of it. But i'm not particularly bothered by it. It's really not overly grainy on white backgrounds to be a bother.

Let us know if you're successful in removing the coating. I'd probably try to do the same.

It's not a matter of being successful or not, it's a fairly easy task with guaranteed success rate if you can differentiate the matte coating from the polarizer layer tongue.gif

Do you follow the steps on the Dell guide on [H]? I've never done it, so i wouldn't know how to go about it.

I think i just looked at Vega's post @ hard forum and went along with that. Basically all you really do is disassemble the monitor so you get the bare panel then find a flat surface for it to lay on and get some paper towels and soak them in water (I just used water from the tap, don't see a point in distilled) so that they're wet, but not overly so where they would be dripping. Keep adding a bit of water to the paper towels every hour so that they remain moist, and after 6 hours you can easily peel off the matte film by lifting it up at one of the corners with your finger nail. Also make sure the paper towels and nice and flush with the monitor so the whole surface gets good contact, using a roller of sorts makes that easy, but it can be done manually by hand too.

Sounds about right. Maybe i'll have a go at it. Thanks!
