    Hi,

    Hope you don’t mind some pretty basic questions but I’m totally new to this calibration game so I’ve probably got a few dumb questions to ask.

    I’ve run a calibration on the monitor, display mode set to User so I could adjust the RGB values via the OSD and it generated a profile with the results per the attached image.

    What I’m not sure though is if I chose the right mode, I was following this video for setting DisplayCal up to use a Spyder calibrator – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMJnVmfChX4 – which suggests that most LCDs are ‘White LED’, which I appreciate is a bit of a generalisation, however this thread – https://hub.displaycal.net/forums/topic/measuring-a-wrong-whitepoint/ – suggests the BenQ might not be and I so I’m wondering if I should choose WLED, RGB LED or whether I’m just not understanding the technical stuff (OK, I know I’m not understanding that).

    Also with regard to the SpyderX, the above youtube tutorial was based on a Spyder5 and when I came to the part to ‘import colorimeter corrections from other display profiling software’, there wasn’t an option for the SpyderX, is this step not necessary with the SpyderX? I tried checking the Spyder4/5 box and selecting the SpyderXPro_5.4_Setup.exe but that just gave this error: oeminst: Error – Didn’t locate any files to install – no CD present ?

    Thanks for any tips!

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Hi,

    the display you have is probably white LED, judging from the gamut coverages. You can search for it on displayspecifications.com to get details.

    The SpyderX has no importable corrections.

    Thanks Florian, that’s great, looks like I’m good to go with the calibration I got!

    Cheers,
    Rob
