The Monitor Guide - Specifications and Features Defined - Page 19

post #181 of 188
one advice,when you plugin your screen monitor hdtv make sure you use scrgb or srgb whatever .disable the screen color and the gpu color (via gpu in amd,dont think you have an itc ddisabling thing (sorry))
basicly in gpu if the button is gray you are using the gpu color(DONT)itc is screen color etc ,disable this too in gpu.anything related should not be on,only thing on will be pixel format ycbcr for hdtv usually 4.2.2
the main thing to prevent the lag i had is in window color (right click desktop,select resolution,advance parameter,color ....in there set EVERYTHING TO RELATIVE COLORIMETRY,YES EVEN THE OTHER MAPPING .
ME I HAD LAG IN DEFAULT WINDOW SETTING AND ABSOLUTE COLORIMETRY .didnt try proffession since it is supposed to exajeretly saturate color.by setting these here to relative colorimetry your lag issue should be a thing of the past.
in hdmi,be it ycbcr or rgb!hopefully some will confirm my result or deny them!so i know what to expect!(hopefully this fix the issue i had with digital connection same for you!enjoy!

> Color Gamut is usually unlisted by manufacturers and is not considered a "important" feature to most.

Shucks. I'm interested in an IPS monitor to use with Photoshop. I suppose I'm outside the norm for this forum, as I have little or no interest in gaming (or overclocking). To me, several of the more important specs for monitors are:
  • coverage of the Adobe-1998 gamut
  • color accuracy ... "as delivered before hardware calibration" ... in De2k
  • color accuracy ... "after hardware calibration" ... in De2k

I discovered that my monitor actually has a cooling fan, but not until it started to make a lot of noise...

A fan, in a monitor ? It should be illegal.... Samsung S23A750D

They have those so the daughter boards do not overheat.

Not sure where to ask but this will have to do in the mean time. Note that I'm a total monitor newb.

I have a couple of dead LCD monitors at home; they're old, ****ty, 1024x724 VGA monitors. I want to fix them. I think the panels themselves are good and it's all the "stuff inside the monitor" that's dead. I'm thinking there's something in there that can be fixed but I've no idea where to start looking. Suggestions or advice anyone?

Wondering which monitor I should buy, ASUS VQ248QE or BenQ XL2420Z. At the moment I could get VQ248QE for 280euros AND XL2420Z with v2 firmware for 370euros. I would definately go for the BenQ if the Asus model wasnt on sale. But is the Blur reduction such a game changer that I should pay extra? Are there colors much better in XL2420Z?

Monitor would be mainly used for gaming.

Regarding this bit under Color Depth and Reproduction in the OP,
Quote:
8Bit Color Depth allows a total of 16.2 million reproducible colors. This is the most common color depth to find on most monitors on store shelves right now, no matter what the panel type is. Some early TN Panels were only 6bit, but that is not the case anymore.


8-Bit monitors are supposed to have 16.7M colors, not 16.2M.

AFAIK 16.2M is a made up number for 6-Bit Panels which use Dithering, FRC, and other hacks to try and compensate for the real lack of color depth. If there is any actual math or truth behind the 16.2M and why it isn't 16M, or 16.3M, or something else, I'd be interested to see it.

I don't understand why a 120Hz monitor needs a decent GPU to run the monitor at 120Hz (or 144Hz). Can anyone explain it to me please?
