hiya! okay i love this new 17" TFT (proview) however i want to use it at 1024x768 resolution, my normal one, and everything (after much adjusting and usin microsoft cleartype) still seems kind of off, like what im writing now is juuuust not right, however when i put it in max res of 1280x1024 everything is SSOOOOOOOOOOOO CRISP its unbelievable! but i dont want it at this resolution, and also buttons appear to smalla and text is all wrong, so how do i get the clarity i know this superb new monitor is capable of at 1024x768??

For best results you should always run the screen at its native resolution which for the 17inch TFT is 1280 X 1024. anything less than this you get interpolation as the size doesn't match the transistor placment. Don't understand why you are getting the blurry result with the large icon setting - works fine on my screen. Just to check: I use "properties/settings/advanced" and set to "Large Icons", then in "properties/effects" I tick, "Use large Icons" and "Smooth Fonts" . Gives excellent results at 1280 X 1024 , 60 hz refresh and 16 bit (High Colur) setting.

1024-728 is perfect on my aoc 17"tft,even though the native ressolution is higher

Everything that you have described also happens to my 15" Proview TFT even down to the blurred icons when increasing the font size etc.

As you say annoying!!!!!

drab - as they say, if it works, ignore theory!

Running at lower than native resolution is bound to give problems. How can you expect to get 3 dots in the space of 2, something has to go. Angles will obviously be wrong too giving jaggies as interpolation can't possibly get it all right. Better interpolation software with some drivers produces improved results with some but it's bound to be incorrect.
