LG Flatron L1910P (AFRUQ)
This monitor belongs to the same series as the above-described L1910S, but is its senior representative (the series includes three models in total, the Flatron L1910B being the third, midrange model). The L1910P differs from the L1910S in three aspects: the stand, the use of an MVA matrix (which is denoted by the second letter in “AFRUQ”), and the presence of a digital input.
The monitor’s base looks even bulkier than the L1910S’s in profile, but it has a much more handsome look from the front. What’s more important, it allows not only to change the tilt of the screen, but also its height, and to turn the screen round into the portrait mode. The minimal height is rather high, though. It is 12 centimeters from the surface of the desk to the bottom edge of the screen; the maximum height is 19.5 centimeters.
A two-port USB hub is built into the base, but the only good point about this solution is that the hub is firmly fixed and doesn’t clutter your desk. It is not electrically connected to the monitor, so it has no additional power (in other words, the total consumption of the attached devices cannot exceed 500 microamperes) and doesn’t allow controlling the monitor from Windows. Then, the hub’s connectors are located on the rear panel of the base, so it won’t help if you want an easily accessible USB port (for your USB flash drive or digital camera, for example).
There’s a DVI-D connector now on the monitor’s connections panel. The power adapter is integrated into the case, like with the previous model.
The monitor is controlled like the L1910S, but there’s a button for switching between the inputs instead of the LightView button, while the browsing of the LightView modes is now performed with the Up and Down buttons. Quickly accessible are the brightness and contrast settings – pressing any of the buttons marked as Brightness you actually open up a small brightness/contrast menu.
