Guys, I’ve got crt monitor - LG Flatron F700P. Last time I saw these guys it was 2002 and completely forgot the experience. Wanted to try again for retro and deep blacks.
This one was kept in storage, almost new. At least I was told such…
I’ve attached one of my retro laptops and started comparing. The default brightness and contrast levels were100% for some reason, black was bright grey and only on brightness 20% it became more like pitch black.
But the most disappointing thing is colours. In bright windows environment it looked okay, but in thief II smth was wrong. I enabled clone view and even put my iPad to compare, take a look, crt it dramatically greener.
I was able to fix it by setting rgb on screen: red 100%, blue 100%, green 70%. Thief became acceptable but in windows colours were bad.
I don’t understand what’s going on. Screen need to heat up? It’s broken?
