pdf quality good with xpdf, bad with ggv

I got a scanned document from a friend, and I noticed that the quality was rather bad in ggv, but it was just perfect in xpdf (even when I zoomed in 200%).

Anti-aliasing was enabled in ggv, and toggling it showed no significant change in the quality of the document.

Is there any particular reason for this? Or is it just that xpdf r0x0rs ??

ggv uses ghostscript as its engine, doesn't it? You might want to try evince and kpdf, they use xpdf as their pdf rendering engine.
