Set Up Display:
The DisplayMate program recommends running the setup utility before running any tests. The setup utility helps you set your monitor's settings (via the OSD) to the best they can be.
The first sections of the test deal with brightness and contrast. By adjusting these settings, you can get your monitor to show the largest dynamic range possible.
After setting the brightness and contrast up for greyscale, the program starts testing color purity, color tracking, and other similar functions. Further adjustments are made to the brightness and contrast during these steps.
Next up is color intensity wich checks gamma tracking, size, position, sharpness, and moiré interference patterns.
The last set of tests allow you to see a few situations where you might find yourself in, such as reading text on the monitor. A screen at the very end gives you a shrunk down overview of most of the tests that you ran.
One thing I noticed about the BenQ G2400W monitor throughout these tests is how dim it gets. When turning the brightness down much past 90, the screen seemed very dim and whites appeared to take on a light grey appearance, even though this produced the "optimal" viewing conditions.
