I suppose you have the same color profile for both monitors in your graphic card settings and the same level of brightness and contrast, do you? Then you should try to buy/borrow calibration probe to calibrate both monitors. I guess there is nothing like "bed in" in CCFL, however it will definitelly degrade during years.Hi guys,
Just got two U2311H's this morning and am a little disappointed that one of the monitors is brighter and has a better white level than the other. However, the one with the better white level has about 4 flickering pixels that seem to appear mainly on my desktop picture - though I've seen them on other windows from time to time. Initially on the very first power up there were about 20! While it's only really on the desktop I will probably return it as the flickering could infer more problems to come.
My question is, I suppose the differences in panels is quite normal right? Some are brighter than others and some have better white levels. The one with worse white levels is still pretty good - it's just with the other monitor next to it, it can be quite annoying to notice the difference.
I'm not sure how much I could argue to get this one changed as there is nothing actually wrong with it - just not as good white level wise than the other.
I was worried about problems before ordering these as there do seem to be a lot of user reports of QC issues. Suppose I can get used to it and at the end of the day it seems hard to get perfect monitors no matter what the brand.
I must admit I've started getting used to them already - with some initial eye strain which is normal when changing monitors I personally find.
Would be interested in what you guys think though and any experiences with this model.
Also, strange question but do LCD monitors 'bed in' over time. I.E. Improve quality wise over the initial x number of hours? I'm assuming not and think I'm probably thinking about plasma technology but thought I'd ask in case it's possible that the white level on this one could get better in the next 200 hours or something.
Please answer by question about buzzing above.
