Als je (net als ik) zit te twijfelen welke 19" monitor je zal aanschaffen is deze roundup van GamePC wel het lezen waard. Ze vergelijken er de Sony CPD-G400, de Hitachi Superscan 761, de Optiquest Q95, de Mitsubishi 900u en de Viewsonic PF790. Hieronder een gedeelte over die Viewsonic, die als best uit de test kwam:
I've worked with a lot of Viewsonic monitors through the years, and the PF790 seems to be the nicest looking of the bunch I've used thus far. Most people, including myself picture large, rounded, but generally good monitors when they think of Viewsonic's series. The PF790 is one of the first Viewsonic monitors to boast a flat CRT screen, as well as great picture quality. The "PerfectFlat" screen is truly flat, no curves at all, and is the basis for a very attractive monitor.
This model can go up to 1600x1200 at 77 Hz, which is pretty great for a 19" monitor, and the picture is amazingly crisp. The picture clarity was great, even up to the highest resolutions, something we always haven't been able to say about Viewsonic monitors. The monitor boasts a large 200 MHz input clock, which allows the monitor to run high res/refresh rate combinations with rock solid picture. The clarity of this model finally puts Viewsonic monitors (this one, at least) up to the visual image level up with Mitsubishi and Sony models.
The PF790 has proved itself to be more than suitable for gamers, and power users alike. Again, no USB ports or BNC inputs with this model, something which we like to see in most newer monitors, but we won't take away points for it. The Viewsonic is one of the cheapest Flat-CRT models on the market, and even though it's a pretty heavy monitor, it's worth it. For once, we can finally give a Viewsonic monitor a glowing review, Hoo-rah!
