    I bought one also the other day and am not too impressed so far :( I find the brightness on it seems too much and turning the contrast and brightness setting only makes it looked washed out. Turning the gamma on it to mode 2 seems to make it too dark so i'm wondering if anyone has tryed the DVI connection to see if that helps?

    Ordered one anyway, credit's such a wonderful thing, especially at £4.75 a month direct from Dixons! ;)
    I was going to ask about DVI too, does it come with a DVI cable, or will I need to buy one seperately? 9800 Pro's got a connector, so I may as well make use of it. :thumbsup:

    I am using DVI, much sharper than the VGA cable. To get the brigtness down use the OPQ function depending if your playing games, or using word etc. Have you tried adobe gamma utility?

    Also check out the Aria TFT's from (funnily enough!) Aria. 17" (16ms) is about £140 at the minute I think - I know of 3 people (myself included) who have opted for them and all are very pleased :)
