post #3522 of 7722
Here's my ICC profile if anyone wants to try it. I used a ColorMunki Display and DisplayCAL. On the monitor OSD I have brightness at 27 and colors (user setting) R-G-B at 96-92-100. Everything else is untouched. I set the target in DisplayCAL to 6500K and 2.2 gamma. For luminance I used "as measured" setting and targeted 120 cd/m2.

Overall I think it's pretty good. Measured white point is 6545K, profile white point is 6531K, black level .114 cd/m2, and contrast ratio of 1056.4:1.

Use the device and some other software. Everyone seems to agree that the colormunki software is crap.

You need to have the ColorMunki device to get anything out of the software. The program can't calibrate a display without the colorimeter. I have another calibration in the works using DisplayCAL, it is so much better than the CM software. And I'm getting addicted to tinkering with settings to get the best results. Can't believe I waited this long to get a colorimeter, it's fun.

Hey there was just wondering if I could get a quick opinion on the uniformity of 2 of my screens. First one is a November model 2nd one is October. Both are using the same OSD settings @ 30 brightness and an ICC profile I found earlier in the thread.

I can't believe you feel entitled to go through 7 monitors after knowing it is a shoddy product and face no penalty for abusing a lax policy.

HUH, WHAT?! Are you suggesting that a company like Amazon, following a mass number of returns on a POS product that exhibits OBVIOUS faults, would think the solution to this is... "let's enrage our customers by removing our acclaimed and famous free returns policy rather than actually speaking to the manufacturer about this product we are stocking and consider removing it from our site unless they do something about the quality." Do you HONESTLY think that would make ANY sense WHATSOEVER... because it doesn't. Fortunately, they do the right thing 99% of the time and will review products if they get many returns on it (as happened with the XB270).

I am not talking about people taking advantage and returning perfectly acceptable monitors because there is a microscopic amount of bleed in one corner, but that accounts for a VERY small percentage of returns. I'm talking about countless monitors (in the case of the XB270/PG279) that are just junk, unfit for purpose and not worth their high price tag... horrendous bleed, stuck/dead pixels and dirt behind the screen. I went through 4 of them myself, so I know how awful they can be. You are NOT affected by my (or anyone's) ability to return this monitor for free... on the contrary, you would be far more seriously affected if we couldn't, given how that would take the pressure of the manufacturer's to step up their production quality and QC. Why do you think Acer have at least tried to do something with the XB271 and the new backlight assembly?? It does actually seem to have helped, albeit not in all cases, but they released that model very soon after the XB270, and I think it's pretty obvious they did so because of the mess that was the XB270. You will not find a single forum thread on any forum that doesn't have people up in arms about the issues with that and PG279Q.

When will people realise that the we, the CONSUMER, are in charge here?! You don't owe Amazon anything, you don't owe the monitor manufacturers anything. These are multi-million dollar companies because of US! They are selling a premium product at a premium price and that's why I expect to get... anything less, I will return it. Why would you bend over backwards and take anything less? WHY?? Makes no sense to me, none at all. 4 monitors, 7, 50... doesn't matter... they should stop selling it if it's clearly not up to standard.

Also, I fail to see how it's in any way a 'lax' policy... free returns has always been at the core of Amazon's business practice, and it's what has given me (and millions of others) the confidence to buy countless products from them over the years. There is no doubt they know this, so it's utterly beyond comprehension they would stop doing so... far more likely they'll just turn around to Acer and say "we will no longer stock your POS product, go away and improve it, then we'll talk."

It's actually pretty close to 2.2 out of the box, I tested it with my colorimeter. At the dark end it's slightly too bright (1.9?) and at the bright end it's a little under (2.3) but for the majority it is around 2.2. After I calibrated mine to 2.2, I notice darks get darker, but it isn't a huge difference.

Of course it could also vary from monitor to monitor... I remember reading about the PG278Q having perfect 2.2 at review time, then others buying ones with 2.4 measured etc.

I'm not aware of any PG278Qs having 2.4 average gamma, but many have much lower gamma <2.0 providing a noticeably washed-out look to the image.
