Nothing changed in the NVIDIA control panel. I adjusted brightness/contrast/color to taste on the monitor (I like super warm settings for long term use).

Not 100% sure which of these ICC profiles I'm using right now, but here are two to try.

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.

Thanks a lot! I reset the monitors to default, loaded the profile and adjusted brightness down. I have light in my room so 21 was a little bit dark for me. At the moment I have them on 30.

Also thanks for mentioning the CPKeeper tool, I will try it!

quick question for you owners. I am going to buy either the dell or the pg27 purely to see if I like the size coming from a Samsung 34 and omen x35. I'm trying to prepare myself if possible to switching over to the 4k 144 hz when they come out. will be hard coming from 35 inch curved but nonetheless I am going to try. Want to get a feel for size and speed. with that said microcenter has this monitor for 499 and the rog for 799 I do not plan to keep but I do plan to test. dell the better choice? thanks in advance

Yep, they're very similar. I actually bought both at the same time and kept the Dell because I liked them equally after adjusting ICC profiles and such. The Dell is the best deal you can get in a 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync monitor.

I just sold my Dell like new for $350.

I have 2 ips predators. The only cons about the Dell compared to the IPS counterparts. When looking at the viewing angles or below it. For example like the max recline setting on one of those gaming chairs. Also if you watch anime the colors are brighter on the ips. Also 165hz.

I just wanted to have to monitors side-by-side that were the same. Also I don't want 1080p At all. I have an Asus strix 1080. With 1440p 165hz I still feel like that is a good card for that monitor. When I try to run 4K or even ultrawide 1440p I just feel like **** because I know it's not good enough. Which is a ******* stupid thought because I have one of the best setups available as of right now. So instead of thinking that stupid oh I should upgrade I was like I'm going to be happy my 1440p.

The upgrade to 4K is nice but to me not really that big of a jump. I will be upgrading to .the 4K 144hz g-sync HDR whenever that becomes affordable. I do not want 4K at 60hz I do not want 4K without HDR. You can simulate ultrawide by running it at 4K ultra-wide resolution or even 2560 by 1080 on a 1440 panel and just shove it in your face and it feels the same. That's a better solution than giving up 165hz for 100hz.

Since between 144 165 is not that big but a 100hz and even 144hz just is not worth it for me.

Long term I would regret using 1080p(I bought a 1080p TV in 2010 and a 1080p Monitor and 2011 why the **** would I keep using this resolution) every day. I would also regret buying 4K because I know I can't run it and I should just wait 2 years for the tech to become available. Right now I believe this is the best long-term viable setup for the money.

Tried this one. Colors seem to be a bit warmer than with pcmonitor profile. And white looks a bit redder. But black is deeper than pcmonitor's one. How can u compare these profiles?

Guys the quest for perfect colors will drive you nuts, there are too many variables, not least your subjective thoughts on what looks right. Just chill and enjoy your monitor. Flaffing with ICC's and settings just detract from the experience.

If you really want to know whats 'right', go and buy a calibration tool (I picked one up from Amazon for £55.) You will be quite surprised with the difference.

Regards banding I have found my banding in GTA5 was greatly reduced after a recent driver update, not that there was much there at all to begin with.

What driver upgrade do u mean? Monitor or NV driver? If monitor - on Dell's site there are only 1 driver.

Ugg, the AR film on the S2716DG is definitely not water soluble. Monitor is ruined. tongue.gif
