How to improve quality of screen recordings

What are the recommendations for getting the best quality recordings?  I've used other capture tools - this is the first time I'm trying the built in SL tool. (using SL3)  and not liking the outcome. Very grainy, doesn't completely fill screen, etc.   I'm guessing it's a combination of my SL screen settings and PC display settings.   All advice greatly appreciated!
