    That's a great site you've linked to. :) It looks really plain and a bit boring to look at, but the auther clearly knows his stuff when it comes to the critical technical aspects of monitors. I'm currently reading Matte Vs Glossy Monitors.

    Bookmarked.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I still use a 21" Sony Trinitron for gaming. I have yet to see a lcd with better image quality. Price for said 21" crt, free. People give these things away now.

    I've read them both yesterday, but the XL2420T review doesn't really say if it's a significant of an upgrade to warrant the extra price, the old model is expensive enough.. ;/

    with the XL2420T/TX you get a better stand, touch controls, magnetic controller, more connections, nVidia lightboost, black equalizer, smart scaling and no backlight bleed.

    with the XL2410T you will have to take a chance on backlight bleed.

    I'm sorry to ask for so much, but could you guys help me and tell me what should I check when I buy a new monitor? So far I only check for dead pixels on a white background and backlight bleeding on a dark background.

    that's it really.

    when you calibrate a monitor don't ever "eyeball it" there is a correct image and incorrect image. reviewers have access to a colorimeter so use their settings.

    if you don't like what you see don't panic.. your eyes will get used to it.

    1 more question. In different reviews the reviewers use different means to achieve the right color temperature (6500K) and gamma (2.2), does it matter which one I follow? Or the end result is the same no matter which settings you tuned?

    Just using different presets and tweaking the gamma/brightness/contrast/etc. differently. Or even creating an ICC profile.

    I would go with the TFT settings because they include the ICC profile and I use the same x-rite colorimeter on my televisions and get good results. TFT has been reviewing monitors for a very long time.
