A new roundup continuing the series of 19-inch monitor reviews is ready! This article is devoted to LCD monitors with 5:4 aspect ratio and a native resolution of 1280x1024 pixels. We will discuss their color reproduction quality (and the color gamut), response time (and the RTC error value), brightness and contrast. Today we will introduce to you ten solutions from Acer, Asus, LG, Dell and Samsung.
Today we are going to look at three solutions from Dell and Samsung with 27” and 30” diagonal. 27” monitors may be interesting for people who often watch movies on their PC and who need a large screen with a resolution sufficient for HDTV. 30” models may make a good work monitor for people who process complex design drawings and schematics or have to work with multiple documents at once. So, let’s see how good out today’s testing participants are!
Incorrect correct color reproduction is an issue with a lot of consumer LCD panels. Today we are going to take a look at professional LCD monitors that have been specifically optimized for work with colors. Please meet the three professional models from NEC and Samsung in our new detailed review!
In this article we will cover some specified parameters of monitors (how they are measured by the manufacturers, how relevant they are for practical uses, etc.) and some issues pertaining to the peculiarities of the human vision (this mainly refers to the response time parameter).
We continue our yesterday’s discussion of 20" and 21" monitors and their features. Today we will add another 8 models to the batch. These will be solutions from Samsung, Sony and Viewsonic. Find out what solution is the best out of 19 models tested!
This is another article in our series of LCD monitor roundups. Over the next two days we would like to introduce to you 17 monitor models with the 20” and 21” screen targeted for different application fields and hence belonging to different price segments.

The ISO 13406-2 method to measure the monitor’s response time as the total time necessary to change the state of a pixel from pure black to pure white and back again brings but very little information about the real performance of the monitor and easily misleads the user. Today we are going to reveal all secrets about this parameter and discuss the response time compensation that affects the quality of dynamic images on the screen of 7 monitors from ViewSonic and Samsung.
We continue our detailed roundups of 17" flat-panel monitors. Today we will look at 16 solutions from LG, Samsung, Sony, Viewsonic, Mitsubishi, NEC, and a few others. For the first time in our lab we are proud to introduce to you a monitor from ASUS.
