All TFTs since 2005 too bright?

    I bought a 19" Philips TFT around 2005, and I was very happy with it.

    Then last year I decided to get a new screen, went with a Samsumg 226BW 22" screen, and the first thing I noticed was that it was WAY too bright.
    There were different Gamma settings, but still all too high.

    Frustrated, I returned it and got a BenQ G2400W 24" screen. Guess what, same thing: The gamma was way off.

    The only solution there seems to be is to adjust the gamma in the nvidia driver, but every other app or game likes to reset it, making this quite annoying, especially as I bought a second screen and I have to readjust t for both individually each time.

    I had a look at several screens newer than my old 19", a 27.5" screen a friend of mine got and various others...and they ALL have this same weird gamma issue. Why??
