Good day all,

Looks like it's on sale for ~250$. So I plan on picking up acouple. I was wondering what you all have done to i suppose "calibrate" your monitors. As in what changes have you made to the settings to get the best picture.

And if you like opinions would be nice to here aswell.

Thanks.

At the bottom of the page, you'll see "Similar Threads" on the 2209WA

If you can be patient, it will probably go on sale again for 209.00 again and it will likely be a 1 day only sale. I've seen it on sale at the 209.00 price on two occasions in the last 2 months and bought my second 2209 for 209.00

I just calibrated by eye for now. I'm waiting until I can afford the new version of Photoshop which just came out and will recalibrate then.

Yah I suppose i should wait. I find it hard to catch those damn one day sales though.

I think i will wait though, 200$ is alot better.

I shall be patient. Never the less I'd be interested in what settings you choose when you do that as I'll just use this thread as a reference as opposed to posting again.

I just made a bookmark and stuck it on the Firefox Bookmark Toolbar -- and clicked on it every day :biggrin: and finally it came up. Especially nice, if you're going to get 2 of them. You might want to check some of the current sales items to see if there's a quantity limit.

You can do a little basic calibration at LCD monitor test images
The settings to get as accurate as you can without using calibration hardware and software is:
0 brightness
50 contrast
40 sharpness

On mine, I noticed it's a bit too red, so I lowered it to 94. Left the g & b at 100.
