Hi

Santa kindly gave me a AG Neovo 17" LCD Monitor. I used to have a 17" CRT.

Although I have installed Cleartype, I have noticed that the text is not as clearly defined as a CRT Monitor.

Screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and Colour is 32 bit.

Is it something I will have to live with, or is there more tweaking I can do ? :confused:

Many Thanks

Mike

did you do the cleartype tweaking from the MS Site or what

Yep, I think I also downloaded the cleartype icon which is now in control panel.

Is there a better way, as the text is rather pixillated. It is a Neovo F417.

Thanks

Mike

You need to run the LCD at it's native resolution, or the image quality will suck. Is that panel a 1280x1024 panel, most currently manufactured 17" LCD's are.

I tried ClearType on my LCD's here, but I thought is should be renamed "FuzzyType" IMO. I went back to the Windows defaults. :)

I changed my text to 120DPI and upped the refresh rate to 75 and it helpped alot with that.

When you say native, do you mean its highest resolution ? I tried it and everything gets v. small....

native meens the resolution it was ment to be run at. I run my LCD at 1280x1024 all the time as that`s it`s native resolution. Try my other tip too. :)

Yes, Native does happen to be the highest resolution the LCD can display without streching. Running an LCD at lower resolutions always results in a loss of quality.

Which is why I always yell at a friend of mine when he runs his lcd on 1024x768 :p

I don't know how he can stand it, it looks horrible

I just bought an ACER AL1916ASD 19" with DVI and wow does it ever look great @ 1280 x 1024. It doesn't even look that bad at 1024 x 768 which surprised me a little but the text is not as clear as at its native resolution. Now I'm thinking of buying one for myself as this one I'll be giving to a customer. Any opinions on this LCD?

Its also more expensive, lowest price I've seen is $475.58 Canadian and it would have to be shipped from the U.S. This Acer only cost $399.99 but it has an 8ms response time. I'll see if I can get a deal on it though thru some sources, if I can get it for about $500 with taxes(15%) then I will, have always like Viewsonic monitors.
