    I'm having issues with text. Gaming and Movie playback is fine.

    The text is blurry, I have tried Clear fonts, playing with the Brightness (set at 75) Contrast (set at 80), but it's barely readable.

    The built in pre-set modes also don't offer much (Text mode).

    Yelp!

    Using a HDMI to DVI cable from Laptop to this Display. Running natively at 1920x1080

    I honestly don't know what to suggest here. :/

    How is the text in movies and games?

    Fine. Just that readability for FB, R101, and other sites is not too great. I've reduced the sharpness to about 30, and that has seemed to helped matters.

    Same shit. The font is really thin and unreadable. I have been trying to play with the contrast, since there is hardly any. For instance very hard to distinguish between read and fresh notifications

    Tried it. only way I can read text properly is keeping contrast at 67-70 and brightness at 80. Damn, I think I'm growing old
