I think the best way to adjust gamma for this monitor is by using ICC profile (you have to find one that don't cause banding or create your own profile by colorimeter !!!) or adjust by quickgamma. Change gamma setting in NVCP alone also cause banding. That is why I stop touching anything in NVCP except dynamic range (reduce brightness to hide banding also cause black crushing).

 

Oh ok. I remember you suggested to adjust the gamma in NVCP before. Thanks for letting us know that you stopped from doing that already :)

Good plan. I can definitely see differences between mine and yours. Though, I have another on the way and I’m crossing fingers for a later revision b

For those who have used this monitor for awhile or know. Is there any kind of eye protection or eye strain protection?

Specs:
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
i5-4670k @4.5ghz
16GB RAM
2x GTX670 4GB in SLI (Drivers up to date, 388.31)
Dell S2716DG Monitor (2560x1440, 144hz, Gsync)

Just got this monitor and I am unable to play some games in full screen. I have to play at 120hz since my GPUs cannot handle anything more.
Games that are not working: Grand Theft Auto V and Battlefield 4
Games that are working: Borderlands

SLI is enabled, new monitor is confirmed to be running at 120hz through Windows and the Nvidia Control panel, and the new monitor is the focus display and main display in Nvidia Control Panel.

What I've tried:
Setting the refresh rate in game to match 120hz.
Unplugged second 1440p monitor.
Pressing Alt-enter. This flashes into full (black) screen and then back to windowed.
Setting game settings to full screen. Same as above, goes to a full black screen, and then back to windowed, and the settings in game is reverted.
Teamviewer is not installed (Saw some posts that suggested turning that off)

Any other ideas? Really hope I don't need a GPU upgrade to at least get it working.

GTX 670 don't have enough pixels clock to drive 1440p 144Hz. So 120Hz is correct.

About issue with fullscreen it may caused by your displayport. Try different cable. My first cable can't set anything more than 60Hz. My second cable can't set anything more than 85Hz and can't play games at fullscreen (will cause heavily flickering) My third cable can't set more than 24Hz lol. Need fourth cable for monitor to work correctly.

This monitor have flicker free. But ULMB mode can see very slight flickering.

Thanks! Just ordered a Displayport 1.4 cable. Weird that the cable included can't even handle the resolution/refresh rate.

I bought s2716dg 6 days ago. its almost perfect: colors are ok like for tn, viewing angle are good, in games in 1440 - its sick - image is perfect on uber.ultra/very high. But as u discuss it has imo only one con - gradient issue, I will use this dell not only for gaming but also simple image and photo editing and i spend 2 days trying to set this - to fit my old TN.

I didnt have ips, didnt have colorimeter so for now, before my friend will arrive with retina and ips to help me "set it" i did few tunes. And with small success removed color banding for my needs. I have rev04 (i dont know why u write about rev 07 - in Poland last one is 04) , no other issues - only banding. I made sharp deep (maybe to dark for you) picture and if someone is interested u can try it - any feedback welcomed)

But before - try to check if u can find banding in your screen with those links. To work with colors and banding i used many images and video from YT showing perfectly this issues but those were very helpfull

https://youtu.be/YEKix8iydfU?t=8m7s (flashlight issue on ~8:07
https://youtu.be/7PmlkwJ713Q?t=16m37s - fight with sky above left and center part of bridge)
https://youtu.be/vxkW3uvKr5k - u will notice what is important in this video xD
https://i.gyazo.com/d3ce51f0641546fb97de9816d6cd8d3e.jpg - best quality found dawn image
https://youtu.be/KiCBnT3bPbs?t=4m45s (dark trailer good for tests)

My color settings are:
- in NCP in resolution - nvidia settings with full range (limited is to bright, flat colors, no black, only greys)
- ICC from www.tftcentral.co.uk (but i tried also 2 from this topic - all similar result)
- DELL Monitor settings: Brightness-20% Contrast-60% Color>Custom Color: R-97% G-99% B-96%
- NCP settings: Brightness-45% Contrast-72% Gamma-0.87% Digital vibrance-50% Hue-0

Settings can be still to bright to sitting in dark room at night but i tested it with lights at room and during day - was good for eyes. Like i said all is quite dark (win10 bottom Start stripe is black - not transparent) but i compared it to colors i know like my projects, facebook top blue color stripe and other web pages i use on different displays. I can use it for now and correct in fly any color fault while using photoshop. The most important was to remove this banding.

Ofc my settings dont pass http://tft.vanity.dk/ test. In test scale i have same black on 0 and 3%, multiple o and 4% both same, and white/black gradient i have 4 cm black stripe. But i checked this gradient made in photoshop - like i work and in photoshop its smooth (like on photo below)

Real look photos 9from mobile phone so some are to bright, colors also a bit flatten (e.g. youtube play stripe is not red but orange on photos) Click on photo to enlarge: http://www.mp-cms.pl/pl/album-98442c54eb7d98d351d0cf5b04b86c59

What is important - dont try change parapeters even +/-1 % on sliders - u will recive banding biggrin.gif all settings were carefully checked to fit videos above. high contrast in ncp helped remove banding but cause dark picture.

Thank you! these are by far the best settings and do not crush blacks, I like it a lot, thank you for your work! and Thanks for posting!

GLad to hear that!

It was a bit dark.

ATM i testing other settings (in games is a bit dark - need more brightness but its not problem - in game i dont see color banding issue) but on dekstop or movies itis good settins also i think

Now i have in dell settings 40% / 60% and in NCP 35% brigtnes 65% contrast 1.00 gamma 48% vibrance 0 hue

Colors are very juicy (in games litte to dark so need more brightess) but movies have nice dark balck. Color banding is a bit more than in above settings but also good on dawn picture and in dark scenes. Plz try and say me if its alo acceptable settings for u or colors are litte co contrasted. I will tomorow record on YT video with mobile phone wot it looks in day/evening/without lights

Relating to colors i check all settings if facebook blue collor is correct - if yest and even colors are bit datk its fine smile.gif

Tjhis settings are without any ICC

I also have the butt against panel backlight problem. It is very annoying in any dark scene or even a bright scene with some solid color. Left side is not that bad as the "arc" is not that pronounced. Overall with this backlight and banding issue, I think I'm going to return the monitor.

Here's my image of the backlight
