Viewsonic VX3211-4K-mhd Calibration & Measurements

This thread is to serve as a rough review & tweaking guide for the Viewsonic VX3211-4K-mhd desktop monitor. Recommended settings, performance charts, and ICC profiles will be posted below.

Recommended settings:

Response time - Advanced
Freesync - on

Bright room(~200cd/m2):
Contrast - 70
Brightness - 68
Color temperature(custom) - R100, G97, B98

Dim room(~120cd/m2):
Contrast - 70
Brightness - 31
Color temperature(custom) - R100, G98, B99

All other settings left to their defaults.

Uncalibrated results:
Out of the box, the display has a noticeable purple tinge to grey tones and is over saturated due to the display’s native wide color gamut (~150% sRGB / 105% DCI-P3). Contrast ratio is relatively good at nearly 3200:1, which is about 3x better than a typical TN panel. ghosting is minimal for a 60hz panel.

DCI-P395.6%105.7%

Obtaining accurate colors:
For AMD graphics card owners, Radeon settings has an option for “auto color temperature” within the display tab’s color button, which takes EDID information from the monitor to provide a rough calibration to the sRGB gamut. If you don't want over saturated colors I recommend you enable this and use the appropriate ICC profile below.
Spoiler!

I don’t own a 4k capable Nvidia graphics card, so I don’t know which driver settings are optimal for users of those cards. Perhaps an RTX owner can chime in below.

Subjective thoughts:
Backlight bleed is relatively good with each corner being slightly brighter than the center but not enough to notice in normal usage; there is no "hot-spot" effect where one section of the display is much brighter than the rest.

This image shows the bleed pattern but dramatically exaggerates the amount, in reality the backlight bleed/glow is much less noticeable.
Spoiler!


Calibrated results:
The display takes to calibration well and is capable of mapping to both sRGB("standard gamut") and DCI-P3('wide gamut").

So this means i'm better off with this monitor for color grading than a monitor that covers 99% of srgb?

When displaying dark grey colors, my monitor shows a few vertical lighter grey columns on the left side which messes up the color uniformity. I saw a review by Jack's Hardware with this same problem so I wonder if it is universal?

Hi All! I just picked up this monitor and taking it for a test drive. Overall feels pretty good, I used the settings above and calibrated everything as well as I can. One thing I'm noticing is that tiny white text on black background (like my windows icons text for example) seem to have a lot of color bleed into the white part of the text? (rainbow looking effect). I minimized it as much as possible by setting sharpness to 75 on monitor and windows scaling to 150, but is that normal on monitors or just this one? Since I'm stuck at home office till COVID passes, I can't really check the monitors at work office to see if they exhibit same issues (diff monitors).

Acutally, for that matter, sometimes on black text on white BG (again, most notable on windows UI) i will see color bleed into the black text).

What GPU do you have? The steps needed to correct this issue vary depending on what GPU and drivers you are using.
