Image quality for video
VA’s black crush is less pronounced on motion pictures than on static ones, but viewing angles remain far from ideal.
The native resolution (size in dots) of DVD is small. Being stretched to a full 1920x1200 screen, DVD represents a very “low density” or literally “low definition” (LD) video.
This LD video is highly susceptible to VA’s limited viewing angle problem.
Watch supplemental video Part #3. A scene from DVD “Desperado” on the Dell 2408.
Looks frightening, but it’s normal for a VA monitor.
