Color Accuracy:

We started this off once again by breaking out the DataColor Spyder 4 Elite HD  and found out how well this unit comes setup from the factory. This test is designed to find out how well the display produces accurate color. We did this using an HDMI connection and reset the monitor to defaults (no dynamic contrast, game mode off) before we started. For a gaming LCD, I didn't expect the color accuracty to be all that stellar, but it did alright with a 97% sRGB capability. Not bad at all.

Color Uniformity - New!

In this section we cover the color uniformity of the display by using the updated Spyder 4 Elite HD from Datacolor. This takes different color readings (blue, green, red, etc) from different areas of the screen at different brightness levels and shows how uniform the color is at different parts of the screen at different brightness levels. This is the only the second time we've ran this test on a review product, so I don't have limited reference data. This is here to show how uniform and accurate the color stays at different parts of the screen.

While I don't have the side-by-side numbers, you can check out the ViewSonic VX2452mh to see how it compares. (Spoiler, the Samsung CFG70 wins).

On the next page we'll look at brightness, contrast and luminance uniformity.
