Hi guys i'm new here!

I've bought this great monitor, I love it, i'm trying to find the best settings to get the best colors.
According to what was written in this topic i write here what i've done:
it's connected with the DP cable
Custom Color - RGB 93 96 99
Br 34 contrast 75
Then I've installed the ICC profil from TFT central
It's not so bad but colors now seems a bit too off, pale yellow and weak reds

What should i do please?

thank you biggrin.gif

Unless you have properly calibrated monitor to compare with... "off" colors might be the correct colors in the first place.

For what it's worth, when I took an old Lacie Blue Eye (one of those X-Rite i1 rebrands in terms of hardware but not software) bought around $30 off eBay to mine, the RGB that was closest to 6500K was 95 / 91 / 99. The profile I generated didn't really change much on top of that other than lower the gamma from around 2.35-2.4ish so it might be better without.

Anyone know If P2414H and P2314H use different panels? Where I live there is enough difference in price between those 2 that's making me consider getting the P2314H instead.

Guys, I bought P2414h a few days ago, checked for dead pixels, find none, also there is no big IPS glow, I think. As I moved from my Samsung 2243NW, I noticed much better and sharper picture, the colors are vivid and somehow "darker", but that is maybe because the colors on last monitor was somehow gray-like.
There is only one thing that concerns (worries me). As I read, this monitor is PWM flicker free, you won't get headache and eye strain problem from using monitor for long periods of time.
But, I sense a eye strain and little headache when using the monitor. Yesterday I had little nose bleeding frown.gif Don't know is this the coincidence because I had little sleep few days ago, I am tired and exhausted from work or maybe I need more time to get used to new monitor and IPS tech, since I only used TN monitors till now.

Did someone have the same or similar problem? Did it passed or not? Please help.

@Dabar despite the flicker free technology, you should rest your eyes at least every hour for 5 minutes. If you stay on pc for long periods per day, you should have adequate lighting inside the room (lighting source is recommended to be behind you and not behind the monitor) and is good to use UV eye drops too.

Dumb question!
How good is the brightness?
Everyone seems to be setting the brightness relatively low, so I guess that's a good sign.

My last monitor was rated at 250 cd/m^2 and when I eyeballed it up close it was fine,
but at normal distances it looked dim despite being at max brightness and being in a low-light room.

I've only owned bargain-bin monitors so hopefully this budget-friendly Dell is a step-up above the previous crap I've been buying.redface.gif

I tried to catch it with photographs or video from my mobile but the brightness difference is not depicted at all.
In practice it almost increases linearly with the increase of the brightness bar, so at 100 is intense bright (i ve set it to 35). Hope it helps smile.gif
