Terrible viewing angle, is this normal? [HP 24"]

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I will probably get pictures tomorrow, but I have a HP LA2405wg and it's SOOO dark at the top.

When I pull out the gamma correction thing that's in the control panel and move the box around, the dots get really bright at the top of the screen and are flush with the blob (perfect) on the bottom of the screen. This is while viewing the monitor straight on. I literally have to view it like this to get even brightness across the screen.



Is this normal or a defect?

The gray-blue background of OCN has a visible gradient to it....

I guess I'd be able to fix it if I could adjust the gamma for PART of the monitor in a gradient style via software. Is there any way of doing that?

1. It wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't have such an OCD. I hate not being able to see things in the dark that I could if I stuck my head up. (I'm always comparing while watching dark movies to see if I'm missing any detail, it drives me nuts.)

2. I figured the drawing would represent what's going on.

Like another member said, that's normal on TN panels. I personally can't stand them. They look so.. bleh compared to my IPS panel. I'd go with the higher cost for the viewing angles any day.

Off-Topic:
In fact, I plan on getting a U2711 eventually
