bobsparkle, go for the Samsung.
I bought two and they were both pretty good out of the box.
i plugged and play, just changed the brightness and contrast and i was away, its not as bad as everyone makes out trust me.... i own one :/
I agree. I have one of the panels with no identification. Initially after all that I'd read I was disappointed, but to be honest the monitor keeps impressing me day-to-day. I changed the ICC profile and turned the brightness down to 50% and Contrast to 65% and it seems perfect to me.
Yes, it has some bleed but nothing I notice under normal use.
Yeah I agree.... To see the bleed you have to turn everything down so the screen is black. I then tested it it on 4 games and i couldnt tell where the blee was, even on the very dark areas on Doom3 and Quake 4.
This IS a very good monitor.
I love that the 'experts' on these things are people who don't own them.
Don't worry about it. I had my concerns due to the problems people have been having on this forum but I think it's down to a few isolated cases.
No problems for me straight out of the box. Just played a little with contrast and brightness to get the desired setting as you would with any other monitor. I think the colour is spot on, no adjustments of profiles needed and that's how it should be if your buying a new monitor.
Looks better each day I use it, I wasn't that keen on the overall design with the gloss finish but it's really growing on me now, the monitor is pure class.
Ok thanks guys. Think i might go with the samsung then. I just didn't want to take the risk, of gettin a c panel as most people have said the quality isn't the best. Plus if im paying £270 ish to get it from OC i don't want to end up with a monitor that isn't up to the task. Still have a nagging in the back of my mind, but ill see how i feel over the wk end. Really need a new monitor as my old 19'' Tatung is goosed, and im using my mates old monitor.
No one knows what panel they're getting now anyway - and the C Panel for all anyone knows is more than capable of being up to the job.
Hi guys, i have been very unhappy with the colours on ym samsung and downloaded profiles didn't quite work for me. So i puchrased a spyder2express calibrater and created my own.
I have posted these profiles here:
If any1 would like to try them
lol at ocuks price for this screen now ?
Definately hence why im selling mine
Yea why have oc put the price up for this screen?
Commercial Reasons - Supply & Demand - its what ocuk is and that's what keeps Gibbo in job, and thus keeps giving us good deals.
Am I right in looking at your profiles that you have only adjusted the brightness?
Your link says all colours left at 50, the default.
If so colour on mine is the washed out blue, they need adjusting on mine to reduce the blueness.
I find greyscales show this up quite well, well, it did with my other monitor in dual mode.
£281.99 I LOVE ocuk but that price hmm.So glad i got mine to the door for £229 and change.But even they have put the price up to just over £250 to the door.So its not just Ocuk that have had the price change.
Never thought i would say it but bless the purple shirted people.
no each profile is calibrated for a specific brightness. the profile itself changes the colours internally but if you change the colours via the monitor they won't look as right.
Couldn't make out from that what panel it was, any idea?
Seriously tempted to do the same, I reckon I can get a lot of these if there is profit to be made by it.
Sammy - £281 - LG £205 - not a hard decision from where I am sitting. The only thing the LG lacks is the shiny bezel.
I'm sure people can live without that. Same spec but lower price, makes sense to get the LG.
If you have the money to burn then the Sammy for looks as well.
