Hi. I am using a Vizio 22" 1080p LCD as a second monitor for my laptop. I hooked it up with a display port cable that has an HDMI end. In general it looks ok but the text isn't nearly as sharp as the laptop's screen. Clear type is turned on.
1. Is ther any way to fix this?
2. I really want at least a 30" screen. Is there some spec to look out for in a LCD TV that would make it better with text?
right click on screen, choose resolution, where it says monitor, choose the vizio 22" over the standard laptop display, then click on resolution and bring up to 1368 x 768 resolution (recommended), this should be indicated as the top choice for that size screen, BTW it's 720p only, it's 1080i, as in you need higher then 1680 x 1050 resolution to qualify as 1080p, look it up, did extensive research on that, if it's LED then it may be possible, but I know that brand and most 1080p LCD screen are actually 42" and bigger.
Actually that setting makes it worse. The text is larger and fuzzier. In the screen resolution settings it says the recommended resolution for the tv is 1920x 1200. The text is still a little blurry at that setting. No where near as crisp as the laptop display.
120 hz is must for long periods of gaming so much better on the eyes when using a tv
3hrs at atime (sessions) 120hz is a must. Viizio has newer tv's that are not aht bad but at a smaller size buy a monitor in most cases they are cheaper
