GamePC heeft een review van de Hitachi Superscan 814, een dik 21" beeldkanon met een maximale resolutie van 2048 * 1536px bij 75Hz, op het net gezet. GamePC is erg positief over de beeldkwaliteit van de monitor:
Well after using the 814 for a couple of days, it certainly changed my whole outlook on Hitachi in the monitor business. Using a GeForce DDR board, starting from 640 x 480 and ending up at 2048 x 1536 was a very pleasant experience. At each change in resolution, the image quality never really got terrible enough to where that resolution was not usable. When looked at up closely the only thing noticeable with the monitor were very thin wavy lines running from one side of the screen to the other side. These lines were not the shadows from damper wires we were used to seeing on aperture grille monitors because there were literally hundreds of them starting from the bottom of the monitor and ending to the top.
After much debate on the best resolution to use with this monitor, 1600 x 1200 @ 85 Hz seems to be the 814ís sweet spot. Even though 2048 x 1536 @ 75 Hz was crisp and usable, all of use here needed to squint to read text off the screen. Other then that, all visual usable areas on the monitor were flawless. At high resolutions corners on monitors normally show a slight blurring effect, but in the 814ís case it was very sharp, even at 2048 x 1536. All in all Hitachi is on the right track to being number one. Their SuperScan monitor lines proved that flatter isnít better and that aperture grille arenít all that. If Hitachi addresses the streaming line problem that runs across the screen and fixed up the on screen control we may be seeing a lot more monitor manufactures using Hitachiís tube.
