    When seeing a big block with the same color, normally I see a spectrum/gradient (don't know if I use the right word!! )

    I guess it's the special feature of LCD, and probably in Plasma TV (?)

    LCD can be liable to errors so you might want it fixed! Is it on your laptop?

    Yep, it's, but I think it's perfectly fine, just because of the viewing angle.

    oh yes, the viewing angle on cheaper LCD's will greatly distort colors. Do you remember Sega's Game Gear? Maybe not since you're not from the US. But it was a hand held gaming console that had a color LCD screen, one of the first maybe, but if you tilted the screen the colors got all skewed.

    Most laptops will have cheaper LCD's and have the same problem. My LCD is a desktop one , cost $1000, and can be seen pretty much the same at any angle.

    Yeah, maybe so.
    Flat panel? Cool! I'd love to get one!

    I remember the Game Gear, but the Atari lynx was far supperior and is still the king of handheld consoles if you ask me.

    I've not really played much with LCD screens only on a couple of laptops but they have been TFT displays (and obviously of good quality if that is what causes it to happen).

    Whilst on the topic of displays this may interest the techies amongst us:

    Laptop screens can vary in quality depending on how much you pay. Luckily, I have a Super XVGA, if anyone has ever seen one next to a normal LCD you will be amazed at the difference.
