Nixeus NX-VUE27P 1440P IPS Monitor Review
Color Saturation Levels
There are numerous colors that the human eye can’t see because the human color space is confined to three primary colors and combinations thereof. In order to not waste manufacturing resources displaying colors that we can’t see, a color space known as CIE RGB was mathematically derived and turned into the de facto standard by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE).
In the image below, the dark triangle that isn’t highlighted is the sRGB color space, while the overall CIE color space is displayed as the background colors. Meanwhile, the white triangle with highlighted color represents the results of what a given monitor can display. No monitor can display the entire CIE color spectrum, but a good monitor should be able to display the sRGB spectrum of possible colors as it is usually used as the standard for image encoding.
A monitor that features the “wide color gamut” moniker can display more than the sRGB spectrum, and is considered primarily for professional use. If a monitor cannot cover off the entire sRGB triangle, the resulting image will appear “off” to an observer. The end result is a displayed picture that won’t be as rich, vibrant or as correct as it should be.
The large color gamut is easily the biggest and best selling feature of this monitor. If a wide color gamut is not important to you versus panel response times or something else, then perhaps you should look elsewhere, as you might be able to save a few bucks. However, for those who not only know what a color gamut is, but also need one, the NX-VUE27P has a lot to offer at an attractive price. Consider this a great solution for budding photographers or videographers who may not have a large budget.
Default RGB Levels
An LCD or LCD LED backlit panel relies on accurately blending Red, Green and Blue pixel clusters to create an overall image. Therefore, the closer each of these colors is to a perfect 100 output, the better and more accurate the default colors will be.
In this case, we have a low tolerance for anything less than perfection since any color shift can be noticeable even to untrained eyes, and will require a color correction at the software level to overcome a monitor’s stock output. We do however consider a minor variation of only a few points per color to be acceptable.
Just as with the default gamma levels, the factory RGB settings are quite poor. Even for an inexpensive monitor this is bad. Thankfully, it is not that difficult to fix this issue.
