    Get a new monitor, Or you need to calibrate by the sounds of that , You should be able to see each separate segment , But there is more to it than just this little quick test

    reminder: The calibration bar does NOT mean your monitor is correctly calibrated. It just means that the brightness levels are correct, nothing more.

    To ensure your monitor is correctly calibrated, the use of a hardware device is necessary. Please do not assume that because you can see all the squares on our calibration bar, that you do not need to use a monitor calibrator. Use of a hardware calibration device is the only way to get it right!

    Thumbs up Monitor Calibration

    Great tool for checking your monitors brightness, I struggled so much with calibrating my monitor that I finally purchased a Monitor Calibrator (well Xmas Present) I put a second monitor on and it calibrated that as well there are some slight differences between the monitors but you have to stare hard to see the difference. And the Bar Below, I see all which is reassuring (yes I know it should lol)
    Oh by the way in reading some of the below posts I have the version that adjusts for ambient light I Highly reccomend it. Am new to the Forum hoping I can contribute as well as learn a lot

    Line look OK and distinct on an iPad. I doubt I can do any calibration on of anyway.

    Calibration Bar

    Thanks for putting it at the top again. Works well, but I have trouble seeing the Gamma cal using that QuickGamma that is linked. Any advice with that?

    From this? http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/

    We don't manage that site so you will need to ask there.

    In the end the best calibration is with a device.

    Not sure how many times we have said it in this thread. Do NOT use the bar as a decider if your monitor is calibrated correctly. This just shows that your monitor brightness and contrast are correct, it does not show if colours are being rendered correctly, or if the warmth/coolness (kelvin) of your monitor is correct.
