Summary: I played around with setting endlessly on two of these. Too dark, or too washed out seem to be the choices. Terrible for looking at spreadsheets. Tends to be bad at video as well, again, being too dark and muddy or simply looking like someone cranked up the gamma. I've endured them for a couple of years but I find myself looking for deals. It's a stark contrast using any of my home monitors for the same thing.
