Hi everyone.

Management has just replaced my monitor with a new Acer AL1916W LCD Montior. I must say that its great having a LCD, so much more desk space and the Widescreen version they got makes it even better....

Two issues I have found though is that:

1. My old CRT monitor had a resolution of 1280X1024 whereas the new one is 1440x900.

2. The CRT monitor seems to have more "clarity or definition". (ie. Model edges and lines on the LCD look "dotted / pixelated" instead of being a smooth clear line or edge. (I had the same issue at my old company when they replaced the CRT with an LCD.) Is this just something that must be expected from an LCD or does it depend on the LCD specs. What attribute determines the LCD clarity.

Is there any way I can set my new monitor up to improve the edge clarity?
