Flat Screen Viewing

The supplied 19" flat panel had problems. Top of screen was fuzzy whilst bottom is just fine. But tilt the screen fully down (so it is about a 30 degree angle) and the whole screen looks okay - so probably not good at angular view!!!!! Not too good.

Dell replaced the screen at their expense. The new screen does not suffer the same problem. However, oranges look orange near the top and yellow near the bottom! Oh well, it is a cheaper screen!

Note also that to get a 60Hz display (the optimum) the following modeline in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 in the Monitor section:

  Modeline "1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066
  -hsync -vsync

To check the LCD screen out use the lcdtest package from Especially the a command.
