i just got another qx2710 and i've been struggling to try to make it look anywhere near as good as my old one.
is it just that the panels are useless now or could there be a weak connection somewhere?
with my old monitor it's like "vivid" in look, all the colours look great, and another monitor is "pretty good" but with this monitor it feels like the old TN panels with "mediocre" colours, most noticable with things like white.
if i look at something like:
i can see that the contrast ratios are not that different between the two monitors, but the white looks off and the blue blends together more at the top end, the the gray background on the Contrast box with the description at top looks kind of brown!
i've tried various colour profiles to no avail. i've got the old qx2710 side by side, and the input latency is the same, but before the qnix there's a big Q and when you turn the power off on the monitor the led goes off completely rather than turning red. it also seems to turn on slightly quicker.
i tried swapping the two power supplies between the monitors in case it wasn't getting enough power but that didn't help at all.
curiously going from 60 to 96 hz doesn't seem to make it any worse.
i've also got a 4k monitor that's more similar to the first qx2710, i finally stuck an icc profile on the 4k monitor while i was playing with icc profiles, and now it's even closer to the old qx2710. but having 3 monitors next to each other with one having odd colours is kind of disconcerting.
if i use my phone (bad camera) to take picture of the two monitors, it seems that my old one lacks some green, and the new one lacks some blue. i boosted the blue that made the new one look slightly better than it was looking. (in linux, using xcalib) but the old one is being used in windows, is there some way to modify an existing icc profile to add a little green?
