Color calibration using a Dell D6000 Dock Station connected to a MacBook using two monitors

Hi,

 

I have a MacBook Pro 13" 2017 and two Dell P2419H 1080p monitors (both connected using DisplayPort).

I'm using a Dell D6000 as a Dock Station.

 

The color of one of my monitors is great, but, the color of the other monitor is awful, white is not completely white like the other monitor and grays as well.

 

Monitors settings:

Brightness: 75

Contrast: 75

Preset Mode: Standard

Input Color Format: RGB

Sharpness: 50

 

In the macOS the Display Color Profile for both monitors is: Dell P2419H.

 

I don't know what is the cause of the color difference of one of my monitors.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

More detail on "awfull" could (maybe) help finding the issue, so what makes it awfull:

 

1. Difference in contrast (use a vertical grey scale and compare side by side)

2. Difference in saturation (how do 25%, 50% and 100% blocks of r, g and b primaries compare?)

3. Difference in color balance (how do whites and greys compare?)

 

Possibly factory calibration just deviated and/or slight difference in backlight (due to factory variances in leds used between batches for example). Could also check all monitor menus for options like "eye save" etc.

 

Anyway hope this somehow helps in progressing towards a solution :)
