Yes , I've manged improve it by incresing digital vibrance from 55 to 60 % , the old one is 1920x1080 resolution also 27", both of them are connected on 1x 980ti.

In games color is great, but in desktop and general use comparing the two monitors they're different, i can easily see that Samsung has better and clearer colors but do note that i got a brand new unit that i calibrated yesterday and that it's not burned in.

Are you using an ICC profile to correct the Dell? And by that I don't mean the one supplied with the screen. The gamma is usually ~2.0 on average which causes colours to appear under-saturated.

Bottom line is if you're happy with it then enjoy it and dont worry what others may think about the panel's quality.

Also Dell is currently having a pretty good promotion for the monitor. $600 for the monitor + a $200 gift card that you can either use or flip for cash for like $160-180 effectively bring the monitor into the $400 range

Your math is really off. $599 plus sales tax x 7% is $ 642. Deal is bad no matter how you look at it. Jet.com is cheaper and you have 30 days to return it. Sales tax depends on the location

Surprising that the older screen at lower resolution looked sharper. Maybe the space between the pixels was smaller or something.

You are not using display scaling are you? This can cause things to be more blurry on software that does not support this scaling.

The color may just be "game" optimized(trust me BenQ does this too on gaming screens). The color profile should help.

I've downloaded and applied the ICC profile from TFT , i found everything here on this thread, my current gamma is set to 0.80

No , i've manually set the resolution , also in-game resolution is manually changed. Dell is connected to DP port and the Samsung is using the HDMI port, but to be 100% where can i check if i'm using display scaling ?

Applying the ICC profile and adjusting gamma in the Nvidia Control Panel isn't/shouldn't be necessary. Unless your unit has lower gamma than the one TFT Central reviewed.

I know the deal, no need to post it. Your math is still off.

Thanks.
