What is your luminance leve (in cd/m2)? And what light are you using to view the prints? Is this a change from previous results with this monitor, or is this a change from a CRT monitor? Was there a time when you were getting good results?
Not sure how to find luminance level? I have brightness a 100% and contrast a 50%, black level 54%. Viewing light not the problem, the prints would appear to be 2-3 stops too dark in any light. I did have a LaCie 19" and make acceptable prints using it. BTW, I made a number of AW B prints with the NEC and they were great.
Has anyone heard of a program called Dark Adapter used for too bright monitors.
