Obviously yes use displayport. HDMI is 60Hz only and no Gsync. The monitor comes with a cable.

Currently my RGB is set to 95-91-97 (maybe I adjusted B to 100, can't remember). It was pretty warm out of the box. Brightness I have at 30. Even if I don't notice much of a difference I'd still like to try using a calibration device just for kicks, never tried before.

I bought the i1 display pro which is same hardware as colormunki display just with better software. The funny thing is dispcalgui is better than included software of either and is free open source. The results on fixing gamma and colors on all my displays were excellent. I used it to calibrate Xb271, and it certainly made a noticeable difference (too bad I had to return when hdmi port died). Whether it's enough to justify the expense varies from person to person, but if not having correct results on lagoom test bothers you, having a tool to help you tweak and provide numeric values to what your eyes see certainly wouldn't hurt.

It's also interesting how panels vary. I know a lot of people just go with TFT settings or what they can find on the internet, but it amazed me how much those were off on some of my other displays.And also how different some were with just factory settings. I will say for me, after getting used to calibrated display, playing games on one that can't be calibrated really sucks. (My overlord has no RGB controls so all corrections are on icc profile- which don't get pulled in on games). It sucks bad enough I'm considering trying the Acer lottery again.


If you need any help with settings in dispcalgui, feel free to ask.

Thanks. I currently have Samsung LS27D590CS on Analog/VGA. You think if I connect it to a Display Port, I can overclock it? I have a 980ti.

Yes, it will work at 165Hz with that GPU and the included cable.

Or were you asking about overlocking the Samsung? In that case you'll have to try with custom resolutions in the nVidia Control Panel wink.gif

Yeah. I tried. I patched it with the Nvida thing from GamersNexus. Then used CRU. I started with 70hz and the screen is already distorted. I guess 60hz is the max I can get?

I just looked that monitor up. Connect it though DP/HDMI/DVI to get the best image quality. I thought it was some old, small VGA-only monitor wink.gif

You can always try different timing standards like CVT reduced blank to try to get it higher. I'd try smaller increments too like 65 or 63.

I believe I'm using DVI right now. There was some cord from the 980ti, then I connect it with the extension from the monitor. Should I try HDMI too? HDMI came with it on the box.

Thanks! I already tried using the ColorMunki software and didn't like the results. Tried Displaycal and the first run set the color temperature to 5900K which looked awful. I enabled advanced settings and set it to 6500K and 2.2 gamma target. Prior to running the calibration I set luminance to about 121 cd/m2 and got all the colors and white point set right at the middle of the test bar. Hopefully the next run will produce better results. I'll post them tomorrow if they end up being good.

For the settings, I usually just pick "Office & Web" because that defaults the whitepoint to 6500K and gamma to 2.2.

I'm not sure if you already did it, but in DisplayCal's tools menu, you can "Import colorimeter corrections from other display profiling software...", check i1 Profiler, and Select File (browse to the ColorMunki setup exe). After you do that, you should have a bunch of options available in DisplayCal for the Correction drop-down box. For the XB271HU you'll want to pick "Spectral: LCD White LED IPS (WLED AC LG Samsung)". That should make your colors more accurate I think.

Tried to attach a settings screenshot file as best I could from Displaycal. No idea if my results are considered good or not. Under "media white point", illuminant- relative CCT is 6484K. The temperature is warmer than I like, but if it is accurate I guess I'll leave it.

Edit- nefrusy, I used the setting "LCD RGBLED HP SOYO. Damn! Thanks for the tip, I will re-do this tomorrow.
