    First come the pics:











    Now, the explanation. I was playing with the CCC settings the other day and found the new (for me at least) feature go "vivid" for video playback. Tried it and it was so awesome that I went to color section and set it for everything else. Basically, all you need is saturation ~130 and slightly reduce brightness + bump the contrast a tiny bit.

    I know, it's still not gonna replace a wide gamut panel in terms of color depth, but to me it already looks amazing. Far better than the stock oversaturation on some high gamut panels.

    lolz i clicked on your post immediately (saw new post outside alienware's box)
    thinking of the new alternate market m18x panel ..

    anyway try calibrate it ! you'll see a lot of details was sacrificed ... slide the saturation up and down to feel it :)

    little info you may interested to read ..

    p.s : still waiting for your 8760w Quadro 5010m Dreamcolor@2 review :)

    Thanks for the info. I loathe my old RGB LED on a day to day basis. Any tips for Nvidia owners?

    You don't like the RGB LED from the R2? How come? :confused:

    I wish I had an 18" version of the 1200p RGB LED on the M18x.

    I think you can play with digital vibrance settings to get similar effect.

    I think he means the RBGLED Ruined him for his currently monitor. :p One of the main reasons I'm still in the R2 crowd and not here :eek:

    The question is, will Dellienware listen...?

    P.S.: BTW, the "vivid" option has been in the CCC since the old Mobility Radeon 9600 (128MB)

    Yes, it's been there for quite some time, but for me it's a new toy and so far, looks great. I know, am not getting a true depth of color but the effect is pretty stunning. At least that's my personal opinion. Lessens the agony of parting with the IPS RGBLED, lol.

    The Green Team has a "Digital Vibrance" setting that gives the M18x's WLED screen that "Sammy Oversaturated Color" look that we all know and love. +65 in that setting makes the screen colors really pop without mudding things up.

    All we need now is the RGB's brightness and extra resolution.
