I just recently bought the 27" ASUS MX279H and I was really excited for it until I tried to calibrate it. I'm using it as a second monitor and the colors and brightness (which are at max BTW) seem really dull and washed out in comparison to my iMac. I spent two hours trying to calibrate it and eventually downloaded the ICC profile for it but it didn't help any. I've tried bumping up the contrast so that it would increase the picture quality or make the colors more vivid but it just flushes everything else out. Brightness is already at full. I'm wondering if the monitor is faulty or defective? My TV from way back in 2008 has a better picture than this. So I'm not sure what to do here. Has anyone else ran into this kind of problem? Thanks!
