Monitor colours / brightness vs refresh rate

Post by UP^AlterRed on 8th September 2013, 06:54

Yeah, the two don't sound related, right? 

They are though - in a way. I have a 144hz screen, this one - and like pretty much any high refresh rate screen they're mainly built for 3D. A big thing with them is that they need to be really bright, so that you can get a good picture with 3d glasses on. 

It's driving me completely insane. 

I have the brightness cranked down to 8 (out of 100) and still, as soon as it gets dark outside, the screen brightness just burns a hole in my skull. Seriously contemplating getting rid of this screen in favour of a IPS one, and just accepting that i'll be capped at a 60hz ref rate. 

You guys with 120+hz screens, what's your experience with them? Mayby I just have sensitive eyes or something but even now when I'm typing this, the white part of the editor is way too bright for me. Well, actually, that may just be my hangover, but anyway.

Had same issue with my benq xl2420t when I got it. Then I searched this mysterious thing called internet and found forum with people talking about windows color settings etc. and downloaded their windows default color settings. After that brightnes and all colors were like a dream.

Yeah, been playing with some ICC profiles I've found. Those are the only ones that make me not throw this screen out the window directly. 

As someone wrote in another thread about this screen out of the box:

The colors on this screen makes me want to cut my dick off, slow roast it with honey than feed it to baby whales.
