  • LCD vs. CRT: Christmas Woes

    Hey everyone! I got a 19" Samsung 914v LCD monitor for Christmas. Everything seems okay, but the jury is still out. I'm used to the 19" CRT that I've used for almost 3 years now. The colors on this LCD just seem washed out compared to the old monitor even though I've installed the drivers and attempted to tweak the settings. The colors seem washed out, and it just seems too bright and big in it's native resolution. Is there something I'm doing wrong or that I should check? Maybe I'm just made for bulky CRT's or something.

        CRTs do tend to have better color saturation. If you have an nVidia card, use the color settings ("digital vibrance") to tweak it. It does an excellent job.

          I use digital vibrance and sharpening (only a slight amount) on my TFT screen. Works great.

          It especially helps for gaming. It makes things look of a higher quality than they actually are.

            Also use MS Cleartype to improve font clearness.

              I use this site to adjust my LCD monitor. I also use MS ClearType to help with fonts.

                I have a dell 19" LCD and maybe I lucked out, but I didn't really notice any difference from my old crt except for black backgrounds.
