Ghosting is pretty normal. Maybe you need to try others?
As to brightness, that's either settings in the display or card. Some displays are dimmer than others.
I bought this 19" monitor yesterday. It has dual input methods; D-Sub & DVI. (official page: http://www.benq.us/Products/LCD/index.cfm?product=573)
I connected the monitor via D-Sub, since I haven't bought a DVI vid card yet. It seems the upper portion of the display has more contrast than the lower portion. For instance, colors look darker and text is shadwoy in the upper part. I wonder if this is because of the D-Sub connection, the limited vertical angles, or the old video card? Will DVI show better display?
Another thing, when I scroll fast in webpages, the black text turns kinda green with something like ghosting. The monitor has 8ms resp time. So is this normal for such LCD monitor?
I'd appreciate your opinions.
