Are 17" LCDs Dead?

AG NEOVO M17: We've Been Here Before

The M17 presented this profile during our calibration tests: and the cause? Once opened it up, we found the same panel that is in the E17.

Curiously, the calibration profile differed from that of the E17 - even when we set contrast and brightness to exactly the same levels. The darker shades were poorly rendered.

Of course, these results are very close to those of the E17. Black level is always average and brightness always borderline.

Contrast is the same caliber. Brightness adjustment isn't really effective except from 40% to 100%.
