New Monitor: A Whole New World

ASUS PB278Q

I just got this new monitor yesterday, Β an ASUS PB278Q. It’s like a whole new world. Colors pop like whoa. I bought it because I wanted a monitor with 100% sRGB color and a flicker free screen. That flicker caused by pulse-width modulation (PWM) was really starting to ware me out.

I had this dope ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor, that I really liked, but it didn’t have as wide of color gamut range and suffered from PWM when the brightness is turned down. The first thing I do when I get a monitor is turn the brightness all the way down… And honestly, I know I have sensitive eyes, but I feel like they’re still too bright. I don’t know what’s the deal.

Anyway… I’m writing this because now looking back at my gallery, some of my images are darker than I intended… With my old monitor, because I had the brightness turned all the way down, I figured if it didn’t seem like washed out blackness dark to me, that it would most likely be bright enough for other people to see the details as well. Now I’m not so sure…

I’m hoping people would be willing to comment and let me know what they think? Yes, I’m talking to you πŸ˜‰
