I wouldn't rule out those settings being off.
Mine are very different.
Practically factory settings.
Let me guess;
you cant get your luminosity in range unless you turn down the brightness?
Yes. Please let me clarify my situation a little bit. I'm not a photographer. I got this monitor because I like to get the best I can at good prices, and everwhere I read said IPS is the way to go. At the price this was, to me it was a steal. I was, however, told that to get the best out of it I needed to properly calibrate it. I do some have some background in graphic design though. Calibrating is something I'm having a really hard time with. I use an X-rite Eye-One Display 2. Here are the supposed proper settings for the targets 6500k white point, 120cd/m2 and 2.2 Gamma:
These settings look really dull and odd to me. it's like a blueish tint. I used the Ambient light Head to check my room temperature and it says it's 2800k (way off from where the software says it should be) and illuminance value of 54 Lux. I'm wondering if this is the issue. Oooor maybe I know nothing, and that's how a properly calibrated monitor looks. I'm just too used to inaccurate colours/blacks/greys. I mean calibration is really about accuracy for prints, soo...
ANYWAYS I'm rambling now. I definitely should have checked into this earlier, as I doubt I'm still under warranty. The fact is, if I can't see that range of green at factory settings this thing is probably faulty. Any other insight and wisdom is greatly appreciated though. Here's hoping I am still under warranty (do they even still MAKE these things?
), or I'll have to fork out money I don't have (eventually).
