Do you really know that this strange backlight effect I am talking about is not there? If I sit my monitor next to my wife's, I can see it right away. In the absence of a clear CRT to compare it to, you may just not notice it.. block it out so to speak.. like my wife does.
In my post above I mention the line in the article about the color. But it' not really a color problem at all.. it' the sheen on the screen.. I can see this even if the desktop is blank or set to any solid color.
In other words.. this effect is built into the surface of the screen itself, its not a color reproduction problem. I can see it even before Windows loads. I can see it when the monitor is turned on, and unplugged from the video card.
Perhaps I am not describing the effect correctly. It's hard to describe. I have seen this effect on every LCD I have ever seen. I know there is nothing wrong with my wife's monitor.. no defects that is.. it's just the way all LCD's are made.... unless an IPS will fix this and I just have not seen one.
