If you mean color, you couldn't be more right. Default is TERRIBLE.

Color mode = 100%R,G, and B. (User setting)
Brightness = 70%
Contrast = 65%

Wonderful.... as long as my screen doesn't have a stuck blue pixel, or if one side flickers and turns black, or my backlight doesn't have a SMUDGE on it. This monitor would be awesome. Where else can you find a ~27 inch monitor with 1920x1200 (!!!1200!!!) for ~$250.

Man....I'm sorry. The experience sucks. I got four consecutive defective monitors from RMA. Since you bought it at a local store, it would be a good idea to exchange it for another one.

I'm going back and getting an AOC 27 inch 1920x1080. I lose half an inch and 120 pixels vertically, but hey.. It's AOC/Envision and from my experience with my last Envision monitor, they are slightly better quality than HannStar display corp.

EDIT: Hooked the AOC up and it has a stuck blue pixel. This is really pissing me off. I'm of course going to try to fix it but usually you'll just end up to where it will come back every once in a while and never actually be truly fixed, which sucks.

Stuck or dead?

If it's stuck you have pretty good chance of fixing it.

I thought I had a pink stuck pixel, but it was actually a functioning pixel with a dead green subpixel.

It's a stuck blue pixel. I can rub it out but it will always come back if I tap it the right way. (I want it to never come back no matter what I do!)
