Color gradients are reproduced perfectly at the default settings but barely visible banding appears at reduced values of contrast.
The color gamut is quite standard for a monitor with ordinary fluorescent lamps. It is about as large as sRGB – somewhat better in greens and worse in reds.
The average uniformity of white brightness is 4.3% with a maximum deflection of 18.7%. For black, the average and maximum are 3.5% and 15.3%, respectively. The numbers are good although the maximum deflection on white is rather high – it is due to the darkening in the top right corner as you can see in the picture above.
The monitor’s contrast is too high at the default settings as is indicated by the characteristic bend of the curves in the right part of the diagram. From a practical point of view, it means certain problems with the reproduction of the lightest halftones.
When the contrast setting is lowered in the monitor’s menu, the curves become normal. They go close to each other, being but slightly different from the theoretical curve for gamma 2.2.
As might have been expected, the 5ms TN matrix is not really fast. Its response average is 13.2 milliseconds (GtG) with a maximum of 24 milliseconds. To remind you, the specified response time of 5 milliseconds is arrived at by measuring the black-white-black transition only. And this transition happens to be the fastest for RTC-less TN matrixes.
