So here we go. Received unit a few hours ago and got it all set up. Knock on wood. I believe I received a Jesus unit and I hope it stays that way. No stuck or dead pixels, no buzzing, hdcp compliant and a very recent build. Revision A03 built in May 2016. Once setup and calibrated. I fired up The Witcher 3 and my jaw hit the floor. Stunning, glorious etc etc. Wow just WOW! Gsync is absolutely amazing and worth every penny.
Smooth as butter. Coming from my previous Dell U2415 IPS panel. I can certainly notice color shift. I can deal with it though. Its really not that bad and all about how you sit or look up etc. I certainly will not miss the IPS glow. Blacks are blacks. Its nice. Out of the box. The gamma was horrendous. No surprise here and well documented. After calibration. Comparing the results and seeing the before and after.
It was a dramatic difference. I cant stress that enough. Its very close to my IPS monitor now. TN has come a longggggggg way. WOW! To say how pleased I am with this beauty is a understatement! Calibration was done by Colormunki Display. I would only suggest using my profile if you have a A03 version panel. A01 and A02 could be really different. I am not sure. You are still free to try it out if you like regardless of version!
2.2 gamma, D65, 120cm brightness
Calibration was done using factory defaults myself. But, all you need to do is adjust brightness and load the ICC profile.
Factory brightness was blazing at a whopping 298cm!
Brightness 21 which put it at 118cm. 22 brightness put it at 121cm. Leave contrast alone at factory level. Its fine and does not need adjustment.
ICC profile attached. Follow this article to activate it with in Windows. https://pcmonitors.info/articles/using-icc-profiles-in-windows/
**EDIT** post updated
ICC profile updated with new brightness numbers as well. Initially when first getting it and calibrating. I had lights on in my room. It was picking slightly more light. Factory reading went from initially 304cm to 298cm now with all lights off. Which in turn changed the brightness levels very slightly when re calibrating.Edited by FattysGoneWild - 7/18/16 at 8:44pm
