Bij AnandTech is de eerste review gepost van een monitor, en wel de 19" Iiyama VisionMaster Pro 450 met Mitsubishi's DiamondTron NF beeldbuis. Hieronder een stukkie:
iiYama has produced a high quality monitor. There is no questioning that. This monitor can be purchased for as low as $629, which in my opinion, is a decent price for an outstanding monitor. Granted, you can spend a lot more and probably get even better quality, but isn't that the case with everything? When you are talking value for your money, I think the VisionMaster PRO 450 delivers a high quality picture to the consumer. My only complaint is the lack of a USB hub, which the Mitsubishi 900u has. I have not seen a Mistubishi's picture, so I cannot really comment on how it compares to the iiYama; however, they do share the same CRT, yet the electronic components are not the same. As for who should buy this monitor? I think it would suit the home and business user very, very nicely. Will graphic designers like this monitor? I think it will satisfy a good portion of graphic designers. Although, some will want the absolute best, which of course, costs more. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this monitor if you are in the market for a high quality 19" monitor.
