OK so i bought an LCD screen, which should go to a computer for my son (2+ years old. i'm gonna keep working on the Sony 19" Trinitron CRT).
i'm not used to LCD monitors. i hooked it up to my computer and worked on it a bit, and the charaters aren't clear as i'm used to on my CRT. they're a bit 'fuzzy around the edges'.
i turned on Clear Type, it helps some, especaially the text of the icons on the desktop and in the FireFox browser. but some (like in Word, or some PDF documents) it's still fuzzy.
is this normal ?
the CRT is 19", which means 18" viewable, resolution 1600x1200.
the LCD is 19", resolution 1280x1024.
maybe it's because of the combo of larger screen + lower resolution that i see these artifacts? but i don't remember this when i worked on the CRT at lower resolutions too.
is this something inherent to LCD ?
or is my screen defective ?
the monitor is a BenQ model:

One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
