I just got my VG248QE, and i was wondering how to calibrate it.
Everywhere I look people say that you should always calibrate a new monitor, but i've never done it before.
Does anyone have a guide or could give some help in how to get the best out of my monitor ?
Sorry for being such a noob, but what is an ICC profile ?
Should I just set my monitor with the setting they suggested in the article ?
( this ones ?)
Splendid= Theater Mode
Sharpness= 40 (eliminates some minor fringing on text – also use ClearType)
Brightness= 54 (according to preferences and lighting)
Contrast= 43 (default contrast in this preset gives major shade crushing)
Color Temp= User Mode
In the article I posted above after reading down a ways there is a link to download the ICC profile. The best way I know to describe the ICC profile is a file full of optimal color settings. Either in the article or an article it links to is directions for using the ICC file. I would rate the process as medium difficulty but doable and worth it.
