Any opinions or reviews on the new Dell S2417DG? - Page 36

post #351 of 1548
You can test it if you want
I posted the instructions in the 27' thread.

1) Download ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility

2) Run it, pull the monitor name from the top, or whichever entry is "Active", click edit and write down the original "Product ID" somewhere.
Then change the product ID to ACI27F8
This should be the very first option at the top.

3) Then close it and import this registry file: http://www.blurbusters.com/files/ForceLightBoostWithoutGlasses.reg
(I don't know for sure if this is necessary but it won't hurt anything)

Then reboot the computer.

Now, go to the NVCP and the stereoscopic 3D area and see if if you click "Enable 3D", if an option for "Asus 120hz 3d LCD" is there, and also if there is a box below that for "keep 3d always enabled on the desktop". if there is, you're halfway there, and the hardest part is already done.

I'll give it a shot in an hour. thumb.gif

Nope, doesn't work. I had to reinstall the drivers, as I exclude the 3d stuff. Once I re-installed them, I follow the instructions (CRU accepted the ID change on the active display, then I imported the reg file and rebooted.) and enabled stereoscopic 3d and the only options I have are a depth slider, change 3d laser light, set shortcuts, and test stereoscopic 3d. mad.gif

I did try V-Sync on with lightboost, which essentially is the same thing, just a static sync versus a dynamic sync, and it still looked crazy clear, just make sure you're able to hold 120fps. Never experienced fluidity so good before, it's crazy smooth. V-Sync is good enough for games played with a controller, but probably want to avoid for FPS games.

Edit: Forgot to mention, if you try V-Sync with lightboost, double check that ULMB doesn't disable itself. If the screen refreshes after enabling V-Sync, chances are it disabled itself. You just have to re-enable it in the menu. This is really amazing for games with controllers where you don't notice input lag because analog controllers are so slow compared to 1000hz mice. For FPS, it seems you will need the IR emitter from the NVIDIA 3d kit to glitch G-Sync + ULMB and it's still uncofirmed, only confirmed on the 27" model as of yet. V-Sync is just too horrid for mouse input.

Hi all I have a question. If I use this monitor as external monitor (connected it to my laptop) and do color adjustment on NCP, will this adjustment affect my laptop monitor? THanks!
post #355 of 1548
You can set the color settings in NVCP for multiple displays separately.
But why not just use the monitor OSD? What setting are you trying to change that isn't available in the monitor?
There may be a service menu setting for other color or overdrive values as well.

There are some posts recommending adjustment on both NVCP (gamma, digital vibrancy) and OSD. Correct me if I am wrong.

The problem with Digital Vibrance is that increasing it completely messes up this test and causes inaccuracies- http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/contrast.php
I can go up to 53% on my display, any higher and the distinction between steps 31 and 32 is lost.
For gaming I almost exclusively use the SweetFX Vibrance shader, it is not as harsh on the reds by default and it is also possible to set a custom per color channel multiplier.

You shouldn't be using those tweaks, unless you want to throw any color accuracy the panel has out the window. If you want to make your colors more accurate, install the official drivers that will install the pre-made ICC calibrated profile, as Windows does not detect the display properly and uses a base ICC profile that makes the colors look washed out.

You can also try using this post and installing the icc profile and then setting is as your default profile for your display. Google the instructions.

I was using the posted ICC and settings, but ended up going back to the pre-made profile from Dell, as it looks more natural on my panel.

I got my replacement today and not sure if I got lucky or not, but it's perfect. Zero back light bleeding and no clouding patches. The whole panel looks slightly better color wise when comparing it to my first one. It had a few dead pixels, but I just massaged them with a micro fiber and they disappeared. The glow you see on the right is from the LED, the right side of the screen looks exactly like the left:

Really happy with this monitor and I'm going to keep it. biggrin.gif

Would someone who owns the panel be willing to do a few image quality tests when running some modern games at 1080p full screen?

I am in the market for a monitor today but I won't have the budget to buy a video card that can drive 1440p at sufficient frame rates for some time to come. I'm hoping that with the higher PPI due to the smaller size that the scaling down from 1440 to 1080 won't be an issue. This could potentially be a nice bridge (desktop/web browsing at 1440p with good image quality gaming at 1080p) for me until can spring for a better video card.

thanks in advance
