    What monitor do you have? I believe the higher the contrast, the better the display.

    u can adjust contrast in your monitor OSD menu just choose contrast/brightness.. But however u cant do nothing about your monitor contrast ratio(exsample 600:1) http://www.necdisplay.com/support/cs...#contrastratio

    So do I, I set my contrast in the menu of the monitor. My monitor is an IBM G97 just for reference. Although, my monitor doesn't have it on a ratio like 600:1. My monitor goes from 0 - 100

    I think there all 0-100

    To set a contrast ratio you need a colorimeter that you hold over the screen while a black and white checkerd pattern is showing, and it tells you what the light output/contrast ratio is. Then you can adjust the contrast on the 0-100 menu and keep using the colorimeter to measure the ratio until you get it right.

    Although im probably (or most definatley) wrong
