Sorry bud. Your eyes are not better then using a colorimeter for an ICC profile. Those Nvidia options are there for playing with the naked eye. Also another thing I see. People use an ICC profile then go play with the Nvidia options as well. Big no no you are just messing up the ICC profile. Always use one or the other. Not both.

Sure I post my ICC profile for everyone to be nice. But its not exactly accurate for folks. Each monitor is different even if its the same make/model. Light output and color shifting happens with all monitors. Hence calibration once a month I do. Some folks like to do it even sooner on a weekly basis. Maybe for color critical work.

Since this is a gaming monitor and I don't do color critical work. I stick to once a month personally.

I see them in the PG278QR.

During video no banding, only when black screen appears with notes like "this summer" "have changed" I see banding. I can record on camera and upload to youtube if u wish

Wanna download your profile. I used stock that was with drivers and also downloaded from pcmonitor. But they are both too bright. Even if I reduce brightness in monitor settings, it doesn't bring improvments.

I've had the Dell S2716DG monitor for a few months now and I've been loving it. But recently I noticed these weird lines occurring on my screen, usually in dark/grayish areas. Upon further research I noticed that it is actually called banding.

Now I sort of can't unsee the banding. When it occurs my eyes always catch it. The banding is noticeably bad in the Overwatch menus.

My question is, is this a common thing with all TN panels, like the ASUS PG278Q too? Or is this a problem in this specific Dell monitor?

I also notice that when I change the gamma in the Nvidia Control Panel to 1.0, the banding becomes severely reduced which is nice, but I can't stand the colors with the gamma being that high so I leave mine at 0.75.

Here are a few pictures with the gamma at 0.75. It actually looks worse in real life.

Strange. I've had mine for a good while and have had no issues with it.

Note that the panels in most similar monitors are made by the same company and are often identical, so switching to an Asus is just getting you a different delivery method for the same panel. Maybe their method is better? I have an Asus and a Dell side by side (the Asus is a 24" 1080p) and both work great.

Hmm, interesting. So your saying you don't notice any banding? And would you mind sharing the settings you use for your monitor and in the Nvidia control panel or ICC profile if you use one.

Hello everyone,

I would love to use the ICC profile of FattysGoneWild since I just bought 3 of these monitors for triple screen. The default colours are really flat. I treid the tftcentral profile and it is already better. But his approach seems the correct one to me because he calibrates with everything else on default which is different to what others seem to be doing. Also, being on A03 it should be closer to my A04 ones I would guess.

But for some reason I can not download them from filedropper, it always takes me to the main page with no download link.

Would someone be so kind to upload it anywhere else? That would be great. Many thanks in advance!

Here you go: http://www.filedropper.com/dells2716dgd65201704101720_1

Make sure you click download file and enter the security captcha thingy, then it will start to download.

I also recommend using a program like CPKeeper if you plan on gaming because some games revert the color profile to windows default and this program makes sure to force the ICC profile.

Also make sure your monitor is on factory defaults but with the brightness at 21. And your Nvidia control panel should be on default too.

I believe you can still mess with the digital vibrance slider in Nvidia control panel if you want the colors to pop out more. I don't think adjusting the digital vibrance will throw off the ICC profile unless you mess with the other Nvidia control panel settings too (like gamma, brightness, etc.), although someone can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
