BravOman stuurde me richting Smart Computing waar een roundup is geplaatst van acht 21" monitoren, waaronder de Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2040u, NEC MultiSync FP1350 en de Nokia 445Pro. Hier een gedeelte over de ViewSonic P817 XtremeMonitor die ditmaal als beste uit de test kwam:
Text and graphics alike look smashing because of the monitorís top-notch brightness and contrast. Letters look bold and black on a pure white background while graphics maintain vivid shades and defined images. The Adobe PhotoShop pictures we viewed had consistent, smooth hues with well-aligned color registration. The monitor has poor regulation; we witnessed this when brighter images caused expansion. As is common among shadow mask displays, we found that the left and right borders were not quite parallel.
As mentioned above, the ViewSonicís best feature is its high resolution capabilities. The P817 reaches a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 at 85Hz; this is double the resolution at which we normally test the displays. While this seems really impressive, you wonít be able to take advantage of this rate unless your video card has the horsepower to handle it.
Thereís a reason this display is so expensive. Its quality outshines all the other displays in this roundup with the exception of the NEC. If youíve got the video card to accompany this monitor, itís a hard unit to beat in terms of defined text and colorful graphics.
