Monitor contrast/brightness issues with new TFT

Hi,

I recently bought a 19" Samsung SyncMaster 920n TFT and I am having some issues with contrast/brightness when it comes to gaming. Especially with all this HDR milarky.... Any advice? Just cant seem to find a good balance. Games looked much better on my old 19" CRT at the moment

Been playing Counter-strike source, Colin Mcrae Dirt... they both got a fair old dosage of HDR. Even games like Far Cry, the sand is just too far too bright.

Other games seem to look fine-ish. Could be better, but all in all quite good. Think i was just too used to my 19" CRT, which could also do 1600x1200. So obviously games looked better

i recommend desktop Gamma to be set from 1.00 to 0.70 in CP, but also set your monitor Brighteness to 100% and contrast to 60-65, now things should look good.

There's various online/offline tools as well as software to help adjust gamma (e.g., Adobe Gamma). I think even something like a DVD made to adjust tv's would work (e.g., Avia).
