My impression is that they tend to come with inbuilt optimum settings; is that right? Are these settings transmitted to the computer?Yes. I'd have said they were more critical, as often a CRT will display a picture, even if it's not got the exact settings, whereas an LCD will just display "Out of range" or somesuch error message and shut down.
As far as LCDs are concerned, the BEST performance will ONLY be achieved if optimal mdf settings are used.
Here at Iyonix we have a tool we use that creates an MDF by reading the settings from the monitor itself. All displays from us will come therefore with appropriate MDFs.
This capability is not so far built into the OS.. in other OS es this does happen behind scenes (Plug - n - Pray operation) .. for the future???
