Re: lenovo thinkvision L220x review (pics)

2008-03-14, 23:07 PM
Well, I have tested the monitor for 1:1 pixel mapping and found it will NOT stretch the image if it's set to widescreen or HDMI resolutions. Tested on 1080p and 720p. If resolution is in other ratios it stretches the image to the edge automaticly. I am in belief that if feeded with HDMI it will work just fine without stretching to fullscreen. But I will need HDMI2DVI adater to state this as a fact ...

I've discovered that XP SP3 RC2 creates conflicts and issues with rotation of the display. If you installed RC of SP3 it disables rotation ... Bljak.

After some information about 10 bit color depth new future panels, I decided to buy a monitor now And I bought a l220x :).
It should arrive in next few days, but I' d like to buy a monitor calibrator too.
Does someone know a good calibrator that with lenovo l220x arrive to deltae <1?
Dear Erik may you show the deltas of a calibration on your l220x with RGB Space or if possible with Adobe RGB and not only with sRGB?
From some review on the internet I saw that normaly DeltaE with Adobe RGB or RGB are less accurate than the one with SRGB, but I' d like to use monitor to display my pics that I'd like to take in RGB mode and not in sRGB?
Your calibrator seems good, but I'd like to see also calibrating results in RGB.

diego,

congrats on getting an L220x! :)

regarding calibration, keep in mind that its main purpose is to make colors display more accurately.   it does not affect a panel's gamut or ability to display other color spaces such as AdobeRGB.   since this is an sRGB display, you'll achieve the most accurate calibration results with it set on sRGB in the on-screen menu prior to calibration.   this simply helps the colorimeter do its job since it starts out "seeing" the expected color space.

i work with photos in AdobeRGB and print materials in CMYK and both display quite accurately on the L220x thanks to the wide gamut.   obviously CMYK is an interpolated representation but the wide gamut definitely helps.   i think you'll be quite happy with its ability to work with photos.

Dear Erik,
thank you for the reply.
Yeep I' ll keep in mind but I thought that when you decide to do the calibration you could choose the RGB preset on OSD of the monitor, in order to have a better calibration of the colors of that color space.
But could be we can have better results making the calibration using sRGB preset and than using other color spaces with Photoshop.
But if you will make a calibration with RGB preset and than post us the results I would be very grateful.:smileywink:

there is no "RGB" preset on the monitor; only Default, sRGB, Reddish, and Blueish.   sRGB is by far the most accurate of the four.

definitely not. :)   besides, "default" is much too blue for a proper representation of neutral gray.

I've read somewhere that new x-rite display 2 and spider 3 should have new calibrating capabilities for wide gamut displays.
Thinking about it could be only a better software performance pehaps you could obtain better results with the default presets if you make a software update to the last Software revisions?

i'm not sure why you're so focused on using the default monitor setting.   it's an sRGB monitor and is best set on sRGB.   like i said, default looks much too blue for design work.   why start out with a bad setting when you can start out more accurately on sRGB?

i use ICC coloreyes software for calibration with an x-rite colorimeter and have been extremely happy with the results.

yep I'm sure you're happy you have great deltaE! :smileywink:
In any way i' m looking forward to see my monitor :smileyvery-happy:
Now I have to decide the colorimeter.
I thought to buy the x-rite Display 2 with the software bundled, but not the one for the printer.
Normally I print not by myself but with labs. I have their ICC profiles in order to see how prints come out.
For now it is enought. And often labs tell me to use adobe RGB profile, for seeing print results on the monitor.
When I print by myself with my canon pixma ip6600 I obtain good results using some specific configurations.
I told you I'm not a pro ;)
Thank you and have a good week end
