Well, my samsung 216bw monitor recently started acting up on it's control panel, and well I have to send it in for repair. [Samsung has great customer service btw].

Anyway, my dad brought me a temporary 17" Dell 170s until my Samsung comes back from the repair center, I'm a college student, I need my computer. What I noticed is that everything is smoother... it's brighter, easier on the eyes, left 4 dead was running amazing :o  . Why does it look better? Any monitor gurus out there with any ideas?

:o  in theory the 216BW should look better but their both fairly low end monitors anyway. maybe you haven't set the colours n stuff properly?
