Any real-world benchmarks to verify the 2500:1 and 300cd/m^2 figures?
You don't run benchmarks to test that, you measure it with a probe.
Any real-world probes to verify the 2500:1 and 300cd/m^2 figures?
I'd guess the majority of people who buy this monitor are not the same people with the proper colorimeter or spectro to measure. I recall seeing one review during the first drop where the reviewer check his model with a Spider but I don't recall him publishing the results.
I used a colormunki with displayCAL and struggled to get over 2000:1 at D65. Might be possible. Might be display luck...
Edit: oh and max brightness measured was like 289 nits but that dropped to just over 270 once calibrated. As an aside there is no black point control (in main menu at least)
Good to know. Contrast isn't necessarily consistent throughout a monitor's brightness range. Since I don't recall DisplayCAL having a setting to calibrate/profile for max contrast have you tried calibrating to a lower brightness like 200 nits? I think the Tom's Hardware review hit 3k and they calibrate to 200 for their reviews. I generally calibrate to 120 but I'm trying to maximize accuracy not contrast.
Yeah I stay at 120 with about 2000:1. Will try again at some point.
