Hi everyone! So i bought a SAMSUNG Syncmaster SA350H monitor for my xbox 360, hooked it up via hdmi and i the image looks not so great. I tried to calibrate it manually, but it doesn't change much. I mean when i connected xbox to my friends TV the image was so much better, smoother. Is it normal because TV is better than monitor for xbox 360 gaming ? Or can i adjust my monitor for better image somehow ?

xbox 360 settings: 720p, Reference level: standart, HDMI color space: RGB.
Monitor settings:
HDMI black level: Normal.
Bright: 75,
Contrast: 30.
Sharpness: 52

Thanx!

Set the xbox to 1080p, the native resolution of your monitor should fix it.

tried it, didn't help. i mean the image itself, especially the light effects and shadows are much worse than on TV.
