    my dad has had two, almost three viewsonic monitors, and they look pretty good every time i see them. If i were you I would ditch the LCD monitor and get a nice big flatscreen CRT.

    Something fun to try with Samsung monitors and SuSE:

    Fire up SaX2 and go to the monitor configuration screen. If your exact model isn't listed, click on the "Manufacturer CD" button and pop in your Samsung driver CD that came in the box.

    For me, the CD was read and the exact model of my monitor popped up in the monitor config menu. I haven't actually tried this with any other brand of TFTs, but it certainly surprised me the first time it happened.

    That's the only way I could get SuSE to work correctly with my 930B.

    I've also got an older MagView to work with SuSE 9.1 doing the same thing. I extracted the drivers to a floppy and SaX2 found/installed the monitor driver.
