    got XP on my new PC (just built) and on the flat screen the Clear Type has made a very big improvement.

    Thanks

    WOW. ClearType is amazing

    How come it isn't an obvious option. If I hadn't seen this post I would have never known.

    Should it look like this?


    I don't remember the font being this fuzzy, or am I just that tired?

    Just for laughs, I went to this on my Win2k box, and now on the test page where it shows fonts, I'm showing some of the fonts using ClearType, can anyone tell me if the Comic Sans is supposed to look like that? Because now its a little more fuzzy than usual.....

    I didn't know about the tuner until I saw your post. My display already looked really good, but now it looks great!

    Actually it does impove the font display on a CRT but I see what you mean about 'fuzziness'. There are several options you can choose from (in the online tool) and there are several that improve the display without making it too fuzzy.

    If it weren't for this thread, I would never had known about ClearType!

    It doesn't do much if you're running at high res on a CRT though, just makes everything look fuzzy.

    On my laptop its amazing though.

    well its also an added benefit for people with slight eye problems, and they dont have to turn on a magnifier on there, nor turn on the invert colors, that just disfigures everything when you do...

    See M$ did a good job on this OS

    Yeah, it was designed for LCDs, since they don't alias like Monitors

    Steve Gibson has a page about cleartype:
