I just upgraded from a 19" CRT to the Sammy. I used to run my 19" at 1024x768.

The native resolution of the Sammy is 1680x1050 but the text seems soooo small and when I change to a lower resolution, the picture isn't as sharp.

Since I am new to the LCD group, I was wondering is anyone can please help me out. Thanks

Have you tried raising you text dpi? If not, right click anywhere on the desktop, goto Properties, Settings, Advanced; then under the General tab at the top of the menu, you'll see a DPI setting, which should be at 96dpi. Change that to the larger size, 120dpi I think. You'll have to restart before the change takes effect, but it should make your text a more suitable size.

Yes, I tried that but it made everything look kind of funky. Mayne this is something I just have to get used to. If not, I think I will return this monitor
