Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation.

My monitor e a Sony SDM HX95.

Is it good enough ?
I have it for 6 years now.., but I am very happy with it.

Peter, your monitor isn't bad as it has a MVA panel from Fujitsu ( http://www.flatpanelshd.com/panels.php , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TFT_LCD ) so it is considerably better than a "TN" panel. As per the Wikipedia article, some of these monitors may not be as sharp in rendering colours as some modern LCD monitors if it "dithers" to produce the full range of colours, but your model appears to have the full 16 million plus range of colours meaning it has full eight bit colour per colour channel.

Viewing angles won't be as wide as modern S-PMA or IPS monitors, but shouldn't be bad. A quick check would be to try the little Java test link that I sent you in my last post: http://perso.telecom-paristech.fr/~brettel/TESTS/Gamma/Gamma.html to see if you can assess your "gamma". Also, you might try to assess your monitor using the following link: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ .
