    I have a Dell flat panel, and regardless of what it says, I cannot adjust the contrast or the brightness. It's brighter than my flat screen Diamontrons, but not so much as to make a noticible difference in what I see, except when I am not looking at it "dead on."

    100 Contrast?! That kind of setup could hardly be used for inking, let alone painting... With 100Co you're probably clipping off your whitest whites and blackest blacks.

    Check the monitor calibration charts here, try the 1.6 or 1.4 gamma: http://www.aim-dtp.net/aim/download/

    Voted for 100br, 60co, but my contrast is as low as possible (to accommodate as wide a range of tones as possible without the screen becoming all pale), probably below 50.

    insect666, you should really have your contrast at max on crt's, then adjust the brightness accordingly. tft's on a dvi connection are a different story (my dell 2405 doesn't allow a contrast adjustment when on a dvi).

    use the adobe gamma software for a proper explanation.
