Windows 7: Monitor SyncMaster P2370HD 1080p don't work properly in 1080p.

Windows 7 Professional x64
Monitor SyncMaster P2370HD 1080p don't work properly in 1080p.

Hello. I just bough a screen for my computer.

I am using Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Radeon HD5850 1GB graphic card.
Using HDMI cable

And I was hoping to get a great screen in 1920x1080 resolution by buying this screen. After reading like 10 reviews on google search it was a great match to my demands.

Then I got the screen, and tested it. However when I selected to run in 1920x1080, the quality was horrible!
I try to do print screen, but only the analog display is horrible, not the results on the computer.

However if I tune this down to 1600x1200 resolution, it looks great. But I want to have the full 1920x1080 effect not the 1600x1200 effect.

I checked the drivers, and it says my latest driver is "2009/10/29_001003". Witch looks like a recent date.

I have tried to google any specific drivers for this screen for vista/Win7 that got a newer date than my drivers. Without any luck.

I try to google other people who have same problem as me, however, I only get to 1000x different reviews of this monitor, fake driver download/repair sites and such things.

I got very mixed up feelings about this. I do not know if I shall try to deliver back the screen, or that 1920x1080p isn't for computers? Or maybe HDMI cant run 1920x1080p? Is it a malefactor fault? Shall i just stick to the screen and appreciate that it works good in 1600x1200, I mean it isn't that much lower. But I keep dreaming that the screen is originally made for 1080p and that the screen quality will be even better once I get it to 1920x1080 than with 1600x1200.

Since I keep thinking:
1920 * 1080 = 2 073 600 pixels.
1600 * 1200 = 1 920 000 pixels.

A screen that advertise itself as a 1080p product, should have approx 2 mill pixels. So when it tunes down to 1.9 mill pixels quality should reduce. Isn't pixels hard-coded into the screen?

the latest driver on AMD's website is dated 9/15/2010. it probably wont solve your problem, but it cant hurt to try.

I have owned the P2350 for around 12 months now. I believe the P2370 is similar. The image quality should be very good and I think you should be getting 1920x1080 (Full HD res). See my specs for what I'm running.
Could be your graphics card or cable??? I'm guessing the cable is prob new.
Do you have the vga connector plugged in as well - is so try unplugging it.

Could check your monitor settings
Control panel>Display>screen resolution
Mine is:
Refresh rate :59Hz (odd figure but 60Hz should be ok)
True color: 32 bit.

I gather the monitor is new? Have you spoken to Samsung?

What are you using for cable connection? Could be a problem with the connection you're using.

Also looking at the specs, your native resolution should be running in 1920x1080.
