    I just bought a Dell 1905 and sold my CRT, i play CS and i can tell that it ghosts, as well as when i play MVP Baseball 2005. The screen got really good reviews and a lot of people said they had no ghosting problems, so i didnt think it would have done this, is there any tips or anything i can do to decrease this at all?

    This drives a lot of people crazy but I think it is a direct result of the response time of the LCD (measured in ms). There are no ways around it that I know of -- maybe some others will have some ideas.

    Monitor settings? If it's a 12 ms response(maximum possible refresh rate for gaming) then look in monitor settings. Some monitors have a refresh over-ride for 3.1 machines.

    return it. that monitor has 20ms pixel response time. I had this same issue.

    I returned it to dell within the allotted 21 days and got a 2005FPw (20.1" widescreen) instead. $100 more but more then worth it. :wiggle:

    redrawing the screen is the problem. You cannot change this. It's the time it takes the liquid to fill and exit the cells and the only way to make it faster is to heat it up, but that will damage your display.

    thanks for the help, ive decided to just keep it, im going to wait until prices come down and technology gets a little better before i buy an expensive one, the plan on buying this was because it was cheap (279$), so another 100$ really isnt worth it to me. Thanks for the info though

    Plug it into a 220v outlet. That will cause the LCD to work twice as fast, effectively cutting the response time in half. :hsugh:

    what you bought it for. They might try and charge you for shipping it back, but just bitch about it and they won't fight you. They'll pay to have it shipped back to them.

    It's true, since it is working twice as fast it will also use *half* the electricity!1

    :noes:
