3.0 out of 5 stars Use Picture Boost option, November 27, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AOC e2752She 27-Inch Class LED Backlit Monitor with 2 MS Response Time, VGA and 2 HDMI Ports, Earphone Audio port, 1920 x 1080 Resolution Display (Personal Computers)
I spent a long time tweaking the monitor settings. At first the monitors (I have two of them) seemed like they had a light haze over them. No matter how long I played with the color and brightness/contrast I could not get rid of that annoying haziness. Then I discovered the "Picture Boost" options. Set the Picture Boost to encompass the entire screen. I then set the Brightness to 24 and the Contrast to 36. This makes the monitors look OK compared to my third monitor (prior to this they looked hazy and washed out). If i adjust the brightness above 30 it starts to look hazy again. I don't know why they don't just make the monitor look good by default with the Picture Boost, pretty annoying. It looks OK now, prior to finding that I was going to return them.

I just wanted to thank you for this recommendation -- I have a different AOC monitor with the same "haze" and was consigned to just dealing with it. Picture boost totally fixed it up.

Picture boost helped me a bit, but it still looked too washed out for me until I created a custom resolution and set my HDMI refresh to 59.99 instead of 60 -- then it looked perfect. Apparently some nVidia cards have problems over HDMI and that's the fix, which I discovered buried inside this review:

"I don't know why they don't just make the monitor look good by default..."

I suspect it's so they can get their EnergyStar rating. They've got it set to look bad but conserve energy.
