Big Problems With My New Monitor
Posted 21 February 2008 - 06:33 PM
I know the problem is that I can't run the Sammy in it's native resolution, I didn't think this would be a problem but now I'm stuck with a £200 monitor that's a piece of junk!
Is there anything I can do to improve the blurry picture or am I screwed?

I was wondering if I bought a HDMI > DVI cable would that improve the picture quality somewhat? If anyone has the same monitor and can share some tip's to get the best picture quality I would be grateful.

I've found that the monitor looks best in the dashboards hiest setting 1920 x 1080. After a LOT of tinkering with the picture, getting the contrast/brightness right it now looks kick ass. Even though it's not supporting native resolution it still looks quite incredible the colours and brightness just jumps out of the screen!
I have ordered a HDMI > DVI cable so hopefully I'll see further improvments.
To anybody who's read this and is now put off buying this monitor, DONT BE. I'm a spaz because I didn't have the monitor configured right, when it is it's quite mid blowing. I have altered my set up so I am sitting away form the monitor though as close up it's still no pin sharp, but you don't notice this from a few feet away.

My settings on my sammy are (running with a HDMI > DVI-D cable):
Widescreen @ 1280 x 1024
Reference lvl: expanded
Manual contrast set @ 70
Manual brightness set @ 90
Colour: Red Green Blue all set to 90
I sit about 6 feet from the screen and the picture I get with them setting f***ing mindblowing in all the games I've tried.

Check out CNET.com for a screen adjustment guide. Theres a way to properly calibrate the black and white levels. Raise the brightness all the way up and then come down until the blacks appear black. Then on the brightness you want to raise that all the way up, and lower it until you can see the details on something that is all white, for example a white shirt.
And with hdmi you shouldn't really need that much sharpness. I always have mine off.
