Now that I have a much better graphics card, I decided to try this again.

This time I scored a 19. Better than the 23 of last time, but that was to be expected, since last time I wasn't running in true color.

Unfortunately, my CRT monitor died recently, so I can't connect it to the new pc and compare results between monitor types, although I would expect my color perception to be much better with a CRT. I wouldn't get that funny halo, gradient, and wavy line effect that I see on all LCD's.

"I would expect my color perception to be much better with a CRT."

And so would I.  The gradients also appear much, much smoother on a CRT monitor.  :D

My wife's main complaint about the laptop's LCD screen is that she can see individual pixels, without trying, but that's maybe cos she's long-sighted.  Still, tho' I'm short-sighted, wearing glasses I find that up-close I can easily discern pixels on an LCD, too, but not on the CRT; is that perhaps due to the mask geometry being set up to blend pixel borders smoothly?  :-\
