Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > TUNE UP YOUR MONITOR

TUNE UP YOUR MONITOR

The Annoyance:

The colors on my new monitor are not quite right, and unless it's my eyes, the monitor doesn't look as sharp as it should. I've used the monitor's built-in controls to no avail. Why aren't monitors easier to adjust?

The Fix:

You spend lots of time staring at your monitor, so it makes sense to finely tune its settings. Unfortunately, monitor manufacturers don't provide much help. Turn to DisplayMate-in my opinion, the best product available for adjusting CRT and LCD monitors. DisplayMate gives me instant gratification because I can adjust my ViewSonic LCD's sharpness, color, and contrast and fine-tune dozens of other settings (see Figure 7-4).
