    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Will do. My inclination was that it wasn't something adressable in Windas, but I might try turning the G2 down anyway. Video cable is the one inbuilt into the monitor, but originally I was plugging it into my modern PC via an adapter. Unfortunately plugging directly into my 98 rig gave me the...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Hi folks, I was given a free P991 today. I got it home and mostly seemed okay, but I've noticed a strange shadowing effect to the right of bright text or other boxes. Even the mouse. Here's a picture, the brightness is high to make it easier to photo, but it's still pretty visible with it...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Ah okay, I was only after horizontal size. I don't think it's an issue with the monitor so much, but the line doubler is adding black space around the image, which the monitor sees as 'real' image, but the width controls don't offer enough to send off the edge of the screen. To be honest it's...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Yes pretty much. To be honest I wasn't going for an exact scentific calibration, just using 240p suite and NEC Test generator to get what I wanted. I'm happy with the image quality now, I've been carefull to get no blooming etc. The only thing I can figure out, is does Windas offer the ability...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Ah yes, I have done it that way as well, but just wanted to bump up the contrast ever so slightly without reconfiguring the entire thing again. The only issue I have now is that some modes my OSSC outputs don't fill the screen, horizontally, but I don't know if that's the monitor or the OSSC.

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Good to know, I'm glad that's the case. If you happen to know as well, what's the best setting to bump up the max available contrast? I have C_MAX_B_CENT which seems to affect it, but that resets if I switch the monitor off for a while. There is also the C_MAX_B_MAX setting. I don't want to...

    Can anyone comment on what sort of warm up time is expected for the colours to settle? My Dell P1130 takes 20-30 minutes I'd say for the blacks to settle to where they should be.

    Thanks for that, that's good to know. Slightly raised blacks in some cases shouldn't be too much of an issue, as soon as I can stop fiddling around with the settings that is.

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Hi folks, Really interesting thread. I've spent a good deal of time looking at the info as I have a P1130. The black levels were quite raised so initially I just did a G2 tweak which helped a lot. Just want to clarify something though. I use the monitor with my Win98 retro PC, which is fine...

    Alright cool thank you for all your help. I think what I'll do is live with it for a few days and see how it is, and see if it improves at all. I have plenty of time on the return so no issues there. To be honest if it doesn't get any better I might just stop noticing it all together since I...

    Ok cool. I think I'm just overthinking it to be honest. I was reading the German review for the monitor for it and they say this: I think I have that too. The bottom left side is ever so slightly brighter than the other corners. Now Amazon will replace it free of charge but I'm really debating...

    Alright I tried to get some shots of my monitors next to each other in a dark room. Not an exact science but I used the same camera settings and I set my 2783 to 100 percent brightness and X34 to 30. Does this look more or less right? VA: IPS: Does that look more or less right? I have...

    Hmm ok, I'll try it out tonight when it's dark outside. I feel like there's some sort of glow in the bottom left of my 2783HSU but I don't know if that's just viewing angle stuff. I think I'm being too hard on the monitor, especially considering what it cost vs the X34.

    Hi all I have a bit of a noob question. I picked up the X2783HSU with the intention of using it as a media monitor/for my consoles. It's my first experience with a VA monitor and I'm just wondering, how black should the blacks be? I have an Acer X34 next door to it and I think the black is...

    Looking to create a GPU only loop.

    Hi all, I have a pair of Titan Xs currently with references coolers. Now until recently I've used a pair of headphones with my PC so noise wasn't really an issue. However now I have a soundbar and the noise from the fans can be quite distracting so really I thought why not go the whole hog...
