Samsung SyncMasterT190 19" LCD monitor has slight distortion in picture/text quality despite latest drivers

An acquaintance recently purchased a Samsung SyncMasterT190 19" LCD monitor to replace a 5 year old CTX 15" LCD.  Since setup, he has noticed a slight distortion in picture/text quality that wasn't present with the smaller screen. He has an NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT video card and hasdownloaded the latest driver from their site.  No improvement.

I don't believe buying a DVI cable would help with this problem. He is currently in analog mode.

    What resolution is he running it on and also refresh rate (Though I am told this does not affect LCD monitors)
    I think I have the same one as your acquaintance but I am on DVI with no probs

    Oh, in display properties, is your clear type on or off?
