Difficulties calibrating AOC Agon AG271QG, please help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

I recently bought the AOC Agon AG271QG monitor. It should have the same display as the Asus PG279Q and the equivalent Acer monitor (can't remember name now).

 

It replaces my trustworthy, but old Dell U2711 wide gamut photo monitor. While I understand, I should not expect the same kind of colors as that Dell monitor, I am somewhat baffled to how bad the colors are after calibrating. Even if I set the monitor to the same target color settings, I get a warmer yellow-reddish tint compared to my dell monitor. And non of the colors of the AOC seem to be as saturated, nor do I achieve the same level of contrast. Shadows/blacks on the AOC is not near anything that the Dell monitor pushes out.

 

Now, the Dell is a 12-bit monitor (according to Dell), while the AOC is 8-bit. But should I really expect a significant difference? HERE IS A COMPARISON CHART. They still both cover 100 % sRGB, but the NTSC stats are vastly different. Can this be it? Or is it just the quality of the panel itself where H-IPS (Dell) outperforms AHVA-IPS (AOC) can't keep up?

 

For calibration, I use X-Rite Colormunki calibration tool and software.

 

I would really want some help with this. I can't stand the washed out and lifeless colors of the AOC-screen right now. Or have I just gotten too used to super colors after 7 years with the DELL?
