... And drawing a border around the image actually makes dark levels appear brighter and it's distracting.
From what I've seen when playing a movie in WMP in a windowed mode where you can see controls and a border around the screen, the black levels within the movie appear to be darker to me.
If i had a pure black right next to a near black color projected on my white screen (dark gray), I could definitely tell a difference between the two and you would see a black and gray color.
If i had a pure white right next to a near black color projected on my white screen (dark gray), I don't believe this dark gray would seem so gray anymore. I think in comparison of the two colors seen, you would see black and white and not a white and gray.
Its just what my eyes are making me think. Also, is it really distracting or would it just take getting use to. Same thing with lights on your A/v equipment.... is it distracting or does it just take getting use to?
