Default Color Presets

The HP 25er and 25es are preset to the Technicolor preset under the Quick View menu, and Neutral under the Color menu. Both monitors color presets can be considered "identical," since they are extremely similar, and their differences are a result of the same LCD panels inability to be truly identical. The HP 27XW had the best color presets out of the 2015 HP monitors (CW & XW series), but is not as accurate as the new 25er and 25es, though they do share the same contrast issue.

The contrast issue I am referring to is one where the contrast is too high and causes white and light color shade loss or bleaching, as well as a green/yellowish (HP 27CW, 25er, 25es and 25XW) or blue-ish (HP 27XW) tint when viewing the Lagom White Saturation Test and iTunes. Reducing the Contrast from 80 to 75 eliminates the color bleaching.

The HP 25er/es have excellent color presets with preset gamma closer to the 2.2 target, but like the CW/XW monitors, their color controls are locked unless the Custom Color mode is selected under the Color Management menu. The locked color controls is not really an issue though since both have excellent color accuracy and both linear and RGB greyscale without a strong color dominance.
