Good morning! I recently bought a Spider5 and tried to calibrate it with DisplayCal and ive got very bad results out of the testing. My monitor is the Acer XF270HUA and even though i got 100% in sRGB, the result of the test isnt good. (assuming red is bad)
I calibrated it twice for an hour each and the result were similar. I tried it once with the default settings with sRGB and the default settings with the white point on 6500. How could these results be so bad when DisplayCal says 100% sRGB when installing the ICC profile? A good good color accuracy is really important to me.
Did I missunderstood the results or are the colors on the monitor really this bad? I am still able to return this monitor. Thanks for any advice/help!
Look at “Reference” values: gamma value (left side).
It seems that you are using an unsuitable target for validation.
Don’t use simulation profile without carefully reading documentation, just validate the display profile you get with DisplayCAL.
