    Nope, no dust. I bought it a week ago. I have my brightness set to 65.

    LCD screen gets hot. Should I be worried?

    Hello, I have a 24" HP LP2465 that gets really hot, especially in the top right part at the back. I noticed that even the actual screen gets pretty hot. Is this normal? My room temp is around 86 degrees Fahrenheit. thanks!

    same as a 23" 16:9 display. There's your reason for a multiple display setup. :)

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    thank you, maybe it's related to the weird sub-pixel structure of VA screens...or because 24" displays have smaller dot pitch. Dunno. Any thoughts about these two issues:

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    Ok, when i took the shots that I posted above I had been messing around with gamma, some settings from the video card, Hp display assistent and I actually made it worse. :D I ran system restore and now I see quite an improvement, on the lagom gradient test I can barely observe some banding...

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    thanks for the help, guys. @10e: I can see banding on the images from lagom site also, especially in the form of vertical lines, more or less equally distanced with the distance decreasing towards the darker end of the images. I took a few pics of the screen with my crappy camera...

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    I hooked up a 17" crt in parallel and if look closely I can see the artifacts on that also, although greatly reduced; so I guess that the lcd really shows what it's there.

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    So this is one of the things that inherently exists in all LCD screens and I can't do anything about it, right? I even notice it on low quality vids. But if it shows even on the NEC 2490 which is pretty much the best lcd around...

    over sharpened images on LCD - is it a common issue ?

    I recently moved from an old 21" crt to a 24" lcd screen (S-PVA panel). I really like it, except for the fact that images look over sharpen and pixelated, especially the one that are scaled down, like avatars. They look like a jpg image saved with very low quality settings or a gif with not...
