I want to hear many opinions to see if colorimeter will do something about banding.

While the camera picture looks worse and brighter than the actual image on screen the answer is clearly no.

For calibration? The original Datacolor software version 5.2

That picture made me throw up.

Mine at 2.2 gamma had much less banding than what you see.

Use DisplayCAL much better software.

(You can easily test this with an ICC profile, the blacks get crushed and less banding shows)

nvidia has no dithering, but the root cause is the screen, not nvidia. I can say this with certainty as none of my other 8bit panels have this issue. TN or not.

This is exactly correct, AU Optronics ****ed up with this panel and the 24 inch version, every single one (including all revisions) will have this weird banding, albeit to different degrees. Dell and Nvidia could hide the issue with 2.2 gamma and dithering respectively, but they aren't to blame for it.

To be honest, I was thinking about not posting the picture because I knew what kind of reaction I would get. I can assure you that the picture on screen I look at looks nowhere as bad or bright.

But I will give DisplayCAL a try... although I doubt the picture my cell phones produces will look any different.

It would be cool to know if you will achieve such or even better results with DisplayCAL. Because I do not know whether to buy a pro version or an express. If you use the DisplayCAL, it does not matter which version to buy. And if you use native Datacolor software, then the express version is very limited.

I used DisplayCAL now.

Settings that have to be done to the display are exactly the same as with the Datacolor software (R/G/B 93/94/100, Brightness 30, Contrast 75). DisplayCAL says I achieved 6475k, Gamma 2.2 and 98.5% of sRGB.

From what I see I can't tell any difference in the result. Screenshot looks the same and my phone produces the same *****ty picture. The only real difference between DisplayCAL and the original software I noticed it that DisplayCAL takes much longer.

Weird all this color settings for me are wrong, standard is best working. I tried from here from other site and standard is best working white is white not yellow not red.

And what about your feelings? Banding became less or unchanged after calibration with a colorimeter?

It's hard to answer. The short version is unchanged.

I mean sure you see a difference between the out of the box picture and the calibrated one. But I, as most people here I guess, was using a color profile provided by somebody else already. So comparing that result to my own calibration shows basicly no difference.

I'm not an expert but if you ask me, the difference between using a color profile from somebody else and a calibration done by yourself is not worth buying a colorimeter. I'd even go further... just reducing the brightness feels like doing 95% of what can be done about problems..

Does a profile for a A00 or A01 even work for an A04 for example?
