Hello! It's me again (The one that reported the vertical lines on the HP)

I remember, credited and showed your post from 2017 in my HP 24 Envy video review.

Was wondering what settings you'd recommend for HCFR?

The version (3.5.1.4) you have is set up correctly by default.

I would like to add to the confirmed 1000:1 contrast readings, I think it may be safe to recommend it, assuming this is mostly accurate.

How does all this look?

Excellent aside from the gamma which is too low (turn the Black Stabilization setting down and re-measure), even for an sRB type curve.  Your unit is much better than mine which is far more blue and has a significantly skewed gamma curve (I'll add screen shots later).

Here's my HP Envy 24 for comparison:

Your Envy is also better than mine, though only slightly, and it could be colorimeter differences instead of panel accuracy lottery.  The gamma should ideally be linear 2.2 from 0-100% white

I know that this isn't all that much of a question/help post, but I didn't know where else to put this, would love a general discussion section! (Or maybe I'm blind and there is one, who knows)

Good idea.
