I just want to share my experience of calibrating a NEC LCD monitor. It's a NEC 20.1" 20WMGX2 LCD monitor. I used EYE-ONE Display 2 to calibrate it. I read some online article about the contrast setting for LCD monitor. There are several opinions: 1. Leave contrast to manufacture default value; contrast is meaningless for LCD monitor and don't adjust contrast; 2. Set contrast to 100% and decrease it to erase any washout; Since I was using i1 display 2, I found out another way to get max(optimal) contrast. Set monitor's contrast to 50 (the default value), lower monitor's brightness until the contrast gauge move to left of the center in i1 display 2's contrast adjust screen. Increase monitor's contrast, which will move the gauge to the right, to a point until further increasing contrast will not move the contrast gauge to the right. In my opinion, that point is the max(optimal) contrast for your LCD monitor. The contrast is 70 for my LCD monitor if you are curious. How do you think about my process? Is it right?
