i used this one http://www.monitorsdirect.com/toolkit/ and when i check for ghosting, my tube monitor shows more ghosting then my flat screen, hehe but the flat screen looks more digital, i checked with a dvd and it does not look as realistic as wit ha tube monitor, but anyway i am so happy over this monitor. the test is amazing clear

U know, that can be adjusted w/ contrast and brightness. I know what u mean, but it can be made to look better.

That's weird...there should be an option for contrast as well.....cause often things can be overcontrasted. Very very odd....I suggest u check in the user manual (those things are a fun read anyway:)

Profjo00, Can you give us an Update on the Ghosting Situation and the Dead Pixels... How is the monitor over all for games and such ?

i love my monitor, except that i thought it should be better, but when i think, what can it be better in, i cant figure it out. gaming and dvd's are no ghosting as i notice, not a dead pixel on my monitor, samsung have good dead pixel warranty, 3 on the side or 1 in the middle and you can change and get a new one, but the new one, but dont change if its not broken... but test out your monitor before you buy it, i didnt but i think that is important because the price on a minitor is pretty much you know
