Upgraded from the t1 version to improve performance and am impressed by how it works, only negative i have seen is that the white balance currently needs improvement as the top shows white on a white screen but the bottom doesn’t quite match the top and I’ve tried all levels of white balance and only one that I’m on is close enough and when on dark/black scenes it shows a red ish on one side and blueish/teal on the other. I believe it to be a software issue as when not using video mode the colours are fine so it’s not the leds that are at fault.. I do hope these issues will be resolved as soon as possible to improve performance and quality of viewing experience.
This is a definite upgrade from the T1. The LEDs give a far denser area of colour that you defiantly notice. The duel camera is really good. However, a few points I really hope Govee will sort.
1. Saturation event at 1%. It’s sees far too much red. If anything is a warm colour it shows red, skin tones, autumn senses. You ca. see where it’s going. But it’s just too much, back off on the saturation. TBF it was a problem on the T1 but I could use and filter phone clip that helped this problem out. No such luck on the larger duel camera.
2. No light bars. What. Now I have to buy separate 15inch dreamview light bars. But hi, there not out in IL or Europe
Not too dissimilar for the T1 this heat performs for with games that have clear colour definition or films like The Grinch, rich prime colours. Everyday film or TV and it’s just to red.
I used the govee t1 for over a year and had an ND filter on it which helped the saturation massively. I was hoping with the T2 that this would no longer be an issue but unfortunately having followed everything as instructed the saturation of the colours is still to strong. I love the lights and will continue to use them, I just wish there was a way to accurately match the colours
So I was expecting great things, having looked at online reviews, but sadly it's not as good as expected and you'll see on Youtube where reviewers tend to use test videos for colour. Under test conditions and video, the system works well. I've followed the recommended setup procedure several times, adjusting the white balance, saturation, and brightness. I've also followed other people settings but it's always a compromise.
Either pink, orange, and brown come out looking mostly red and you get good whites, or you change saturation to 1% and white balance all the way towards the blue end, and pink, orange, and brown are improved, but whites then look blue.
I reached out to Govee support but the issue remains unresolved, I'm hoping they will release a firmware update to fix this issue.
Discussed j7st bought the tv backlight package not even fitted it and now they bring this out because the old cameras are crap 😑 going to try and return it for this one
