Washed out or gray - avoid,
This review is from: L2440P 24" Wide Flat Panel (Electronics)
1920x1200 is the only way to go - the extra pixels at the bottom of the screen really make it all happen, make it all worth it.
I'm on a real workhorse - dual quad core xeons, 18GB of RAM, 4 fast SSDs in RAID0, quad output video. I've had Dell, Samsung, Acer and now Lenovo for monitors - rotated through at least 8 different ones. And now one of my monitors is this dog of a Lenovo. Wow but wow am I ever bumming. It's complete and utter crap. Going through brightness, contrast and color settings there isn't a way to get it so that the screen is bright and the text is clear from top to bottom. You know, even the cheap Acer monitors do a better job. In fact, the cheap Acer monitors give excellent results. On the Lenovo if I tune the brightness and contrast so that the center of the screen when running Outlook is fairly decent (not good - just OK) then I can't read anything in the task bar - it's all completely washed out. Incredibly poor design and implementation. OK. Taking the stock cable off and trying with another cable. Nope. Washed out or overlaid with all gray. Worthless junk.

It sounds like you just received a defective unit. I have two of them and neither one has the problems you describe. I use colors in my interfaces that are very low contrast and I still have no difficulty with reading anything or things being washed out. If I were you I would RMA it if it's still in warranty.
