I'm struggling with my display... the blacks are pretty grey, everything looks too bright, and the screen looks very different from the slightest change of viewing angle. Anyone have any tips on calibrating an lcd monitor with a horrible black display? lol

calibration doesn't make your display not suck - hehe. try lowering the brightness and using a hardware calibrator.

Pardon me while I hug my CRTs.

Pardon while I hug my Nec 2490WUXI while you're stuck with your aging and fading CRTs that are putting hurt to your eyes. :p

If by "putting hurt on your eyes," you mean offer up better image quality that only now are LCDs catching up to, then sure. Why not.

ditto. Pardon me while I hug my 2490WUXi with A-TW polarizer and shun the newer model sitting next to it. It's like LCD monitors are going backwards.

No, I mean eyestrain caused by the nature of CRT cathode screens. And I assure you, the picture quality of the Nec is pretty much on par with the 24" Sony FW900 CRT it replaced 18 months ago. A top end grade A monitor that sold for a small fortune back then. I swore by it and despised LCDs until it died and I bought the 2490. And no, I dont miss the 100 pound pachyderm that needed a chainblock to move around. ;)

ya, I had a Lacie 22" CRT and it was nice for the time but soft as hell compared to any modern LCD.

Hehe, it took me a while to get used to LCDs but now I don't mind them, if they are high quality, like my Viewsonic. This laptop screen is kinda ghetto though.
