I used the calibration that http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/benq_xl2730z.htm had applied to their monitor as well as applying the ICC profile and colors look so much better now. I still have to play with the color saturation thing you listed but so far so good.

Thread Starter 
I was going to mention to check the second post in this thread as it has decent settings to start with but I see that you found the TFTCentral review.

I also use those settings and ICC profile.
Does the screen - for example the background of this forum - appear at bit green at the top and pink/red at the bottom?

I don't believe so but I will take a photo with my Note II's camera tonight when I get off work to give you an idea of what it looks like for me.

Guys I wanna ask the owners of this monitor something.

Does the 2730z support 1:1 pixel scaling of a 1920x1080 resolution? I mean built in scaling in the monitor, not scaled by the gpu. Reason im asking is bc Id want to play certain console games with 1:1 pixel scaling (not fullscreen), basically with black borders around the image.

Also could some of you make a picture with 1:1 1080p scaling, I wonder how the proportions are, basically how large the native 1080p image is on the 27" benq. I hope its not smaller than a 22" monitor size, perhaps someone can measure the size of the 1:1 scaled 1080p image.

Honestly I am confused by your question. Both 1080p and 1440p are 16:9 resolutions which means at no point should you be seeing black bars by using 1080p on this monitor. Maybe I am just not understanding the question.
post #247 of 829
Nevermind, I calculated myself the info I need to know.

Displaying 1920x1080 on the Benq unscaled, centered, would result in the size of a 20,5" monitor. Afaik it still has scaling of 23", 24" etc. with black bars.

When you set scalling to 1:1 in the monitor menu you get 1:1 pixel scalling and the size of the desktop is 20.5 inch (measured by me).

Oh crap I forgot to take that picture for you. Went straight into CSGO matches when I got home last night. Hopefully I remember here in a moment.

No matter how I took the picture it just wouldn't show color uniformly. In the picture it looks as if the grey background fades to a different tone but its actually pretty much the same tone of grey top to bottom. Either way I don't have any pink/red tones or green tones.
