If you're using a colorimeter, it may give you a whitepoint that's slightly off. When you calibrate, it should be pretty close if you pick the White LED correction file... but it's just a general correction and not specific to your exact backlight bulb. So there's a chance that the colorimeter reads a perfect 6500K, but in reality it's slightly warmer.

If you were super picky about getting a perfect calibration, then you'd need to invest in a spectrophotometer like the i1Basic Pro 2, but that'd run you a little over $1000!

You can get an i1 Pro2 cheaper used but, you have to run the gauntlet and be patient. I intend to get one myself at some point but, after getting the wrong meter multiple times I'm done trying for now. Word of warning, you can get a Pro2 with limited measurement modes and you'll want to join the DisplayCAL mailing list in case of random problems. It's not as good as something like the Specbos or something from CR; being the 'affordable' spectro it's not thousands of dollars on up either tongue.gif.

Has anyone ordered from newegg and had a single dead/stuck pixel and were successfully able to get a replacement? I tried with a chat agent and they said they won't unless its 8 or more pixels that seems absurd. I have a single stuck pixel in the center. They said to contact the manufacturer directly.

edit: lol after I complained the policy went from 8 to 10 pixels

Agent: Thank you for your patience while I looked into this, James. After checking, we were able to issue you the replacement until the pixel is up to 8. For your currant situation please contact the manufacturer directly for the replacement.

Agent: Is there anything else I can assist you with today?

Me: well some of the reviewers have had their replaced with a single dead/stuck pixel

Agent: I apologize for that. Our policy need the pixel up to 10 after double checking.

Just tell them it shuts off after using it for 2 days or so at random... key word is RANDOM. No way they can test for that. Tell them you've tried different outlets, computers and different cables as well.

This rep or whatever must have flagged me because I started a replacement rma manually online (stuck pixel and bleeding from upper right and bottom right corner) and it won't let me print a return shipping label, it say's my rma is a special case and to contact CS. Newegg is terrible.

edit: nevermind it let me print a label now. I really hope they replace it without issue.

They won't bother to test your monitor for hours. Don't worry.

Anyone else experience issues with black crush on this monitor?
I'm not sure what's up with my setup but I fail the Lagom black level test ( http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php ) pretty seriously, only barely being able to make out the fourth or fifth square from the background. I've got similar settings in my OSD to others in this thread and a calibration profile I downloaded here as well.

The weird thing is I pass the test just fine if I open the same image in Photoshop instead of Chrome. The issue is noticeable in games as well so it's not just limited to Chrome unfortunately.
Here's a rough shot of how the image looks in Photoshop above and Chrome below:


I don't do great on the Lagom gamma test either but the black level is my biggest concern currently. I'm pretty happy with this monitor otherwise... any ideas?

The calibration profile probably does this, since it's not tailored to your unit.
