I browsed and googled quite many sites to find the right settings of Contrast, Brightness and other settings for an LCD monitor. I bought myself a Samsung LCD monitor of 20.5 inches.. but I am still struggling to find the right settings.



Any advices?

If you don't use a special color calibration device to color tune your monitor you will have to eyeball it and your color settings will change as the light in your room changes. I know you know that. It's hard to adjust to a new monitor, they are so much better now then when they first came out. I took me a long time to adjust, I miss a really good CRT. Here is a good page to check for making some adjustments if you just want to use their test images - LCD Monitor Test Images

This all depends on under what light you sit.

You can quiet well calibrate your monitor with the utilities your computer already has. Just make sure that whenever you work on photos that you always use the exact same ambient light in that room/office.

I still use the old spider express but it sure was a difference after I calibrated my monitor with it (my monitor was way too dark, but not anymore now)
