I worked with this for a while... it didn't help. My other 3 monitors look just fine too.

comment What are my SSD options today for an older (3 years) laptop?
Check anandtech for actual random-read random-write numbers. The OCZ offerings are still a full order of magnitude below the X-25. Here's a link: anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3605

The performance per dollar of the OCZ vertex is nowhere near the X-25M which just dropped significantly in price. They like to advertise sequential write/read stats... but those stats don't matter in standard operating system use. anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3403&p=1

Do not buy X25-E. Get the X25-M (preferably the 34nm version that re-ships on August 28th). It outperforms the X25-E and is significantly cheaper.

It's even better now that they've released the 34nm version of the drive. This new version sports 10-40% better performance in random-read and random-write (the only stats that matter for standard-use). They're also a lot cheaper. These will re-ship on August-28th or thereabouts.
