I got my 2408 today and immediatly plugged it to my MBP's DVI connection.
I am afraid to say that the text (black on white) was jagged and had a fuzzy aura round the letters. It was so bad both myself and the SysAdmin could not stare at the monitor with out getting a headache.
Are we doing something wrong? Is there anything I can try to fix this?
PS The MBP has a GeForce 8600M GT graphics card with 256MB VRAM.
Did you try both of the monitor DVI ports?
Yes, I tried both ports and also the VGA port.
Over the weekend I tried it with my friends Dell Latitude laptop. It was fuzzy there as well.
Maybe I should have the screen replaced?
You should be testing at the monitor optimal resolution of 1920x1200. Then, run the OSD (On Screen Display) -Display Settings- Display Reset. Once done, is the Self Test fuzzy? If not, the monitor is fine and the issue is with the video cards or their drivers.
* Turn off the monitor
* Unplug the monitor from the computer (ALL cables)
* Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket
* Turn on the monitor
* The floating red/green/blue/white dialog box should appear on screen against a black background
