I just bought a new Asus VH242H monitor. Everything is great about it, except that it displays black text, especially text that is small, with green and red tinges. Some of the letters are almost totally green or red. If I increase the text size to a large enough size, it finally turns all black. Is this common to all larger LCD monitors, or is mine possibly defective?

I have the latest drivers, and it happens with two different video cards and many different resolutions, including the native 1920x1080.

OK, I just figured it out - maybe this will help someone else. Along with the new computer I built, I also installed Windows 7, which comes with ClearType turned on. This adds colored sub-pixels to small text to help it be more readable. Some people are more sensitive to seeing the green and red colors than other people. I turned ClearType off, and the colored tinge went away.
