View Full Version : samsung 225bw IQ problem

My new Syncmaster 225BW (22 inch wide screen lcd, 1680x1050) is pretty nice, but im not thrilled with the in-game IQ.. I am coming from a trinitron CRT(1600x1200) which I have gamed on for many months.. and with my subjective eyes, the CRT is better by quite a bit. In resident evil 4 for example, the LCD has this hazey effect, and nothing seems as sharp, and im noticing bad aliasing where i didnt notice it with the CRT.

am I going crazy here? could the widescreen resolution cause horrible aliasing? Ive heard that my trinitron tube is one of the best you can get for a CRT, is it possible that its simply better than the panel in my lcd?

I don't know what resolutions RE supports but certain games I've tried haven't looked very good in widescreen so it could just be that. Have you tried playing with any of the MagicBright settings? I usually put mine on game mode and everything looks about right.
