W-LED Monitor Blues - Am I Nuts?
Has anyone else flat out rejected W-LED monitors for a post-calibration tendency towards 'cool' whites?
I purchased an HP zr2440w (W-LED IPS standard gamut) and plopped it next to my old S-PVA Lenovo, which I think has wide gamut.
I knew the HP wouldn't match and wouldn't have the freakish Technicolor pop of the PVA, but what I didn't expect (after calibrating both) was a distinct cool blue 'feel' to the HP images when sitting next to the PVA. Even when calibrated to a warmer white point, the reds still feel purple.
In researching this it seems that the W-LED technology has a strong bias towards blue, which I'd just assumed could be compensated for via calibration. But perhaps not entirely? Anyone else experience this?
I'm considering buying the Dell U2413, which has a different backlight technology and a more even spectral output. Maybe this would give me the purer greens and reds?
Or am I just being a specs-ninny? Thanks.
