Asus P246Q 10 Bit Extra RED Monitor

Here is a pic of the monitor thats been giving me so much grief. This is how its been looking although the iPhone camera did blow out the highlights completely. The image is still more then good enough to illustrate just how red this monitor is and is accurate that way. This shows the screen after I had been adjusting it for the better part of two weeks. 

Today however, I did finally fix it by working on the red axis saturation control, as well as the red gain and other controls. The axis control really brought this monitor into looking, can I dare say, pretty good ? What I still do see is that this screen had a bright high gamma in the upper end making the brights look a  bit brighter then they should. This I can deal with using either the mac screen calibration tools,  probably the Spyder3 Elite or if I'm using it, the Matrox MXO2's output calibration setup.

Tomorrow if I can get a few minutes, I'll post the settings from the Asus user config color settings which should be able to get you into the same ball park.
