Calibrating the U221H

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Could folks please post their U221H settings/tweaks - I've been using the presets but want to get a sense of what others are running. The monitor rocks BTW!

Was just about to make a thread on this. Mine just arrived, and I'm used to extremely bright screens, so I'm a bit disappointed on that front. I can barely see the pixels though, so that's a huge plus.

Have brightness at 100, contrast at 65, with the standard preset.

100/65 helps. The factory presents kind of suck - all but Standard give me a blue tint.

Without hardware it will be hard to get it "right". You can try and download an ICC profile from someone who has calibrated their monitor. Good luck.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm

Disclaimer: Every monitor is different, and therefore profiles will not necessarily calibrate your particular unit. But it should help.

Great review site and they give the presets they calibrated to get the best out of it. It's the 2311 but they should be very similar.

Try them out, but just because they are both U series panels and only 1" different does not mean they would use the same calibration settings. As you can see from the link I provided above, the U2211 and U2311 use different settings to achieve their appropriate calibration using the same colorimeter.

Heh, yeah I'm used to bright monitors too. My 3 just arrived Monday. I downloaded TFT central's ICC profiles and I'm running mine with the "Game" preset and 85/80 brightness/contrast.

^Just tried the RGB settings they had there, and actually do like them quite a bit better. Surprising how much difference just a few points one way or another makes; white looks whiter now. I didn't follow their advice on the brightness though.

Currently have:
Brightness 75
Contrast 80
RGB 99/95/98
