LG Flatron L1960TR
Like the previous model, the Flatron L1960TR employs a TN matrix with response time compensation and dynamic contrast mode. The specified response time has been reduced twofold, but we’ll see below how great the difference really is. The viewing angles have become those of a typical TN matrix, 160 degrees. And I don’t think any user will catch the difference between the viewing angles of the L1960TR and the L1900R visually.
As opposed to the previous monitor, this one is designed in a classic style, with a stern-looking glossy black case, a round stand, a minimum of decorative elements, and an external power adapter. And a TN matrix with response time compensation inside, as you remember. I wouldn’t say this is an eye-catching and extraordinary design, but it is certainly memorable. I have no doubt there’ll be people who’ll like it.
This side view shows you that the stand is actually large and is quite capable of keeping the monitor steady. As concerns functionality, the stand only permits to change the tilt of the screen.
A decorative panel hides the monitor’s connectors at its back. Unfortunately, it makes the L1960TR incompatible with standard VESA mounts.
There is a normal selection of connectors here: a D-Sub, DVI, and a power connector.
The Power button is touch-sensitive and is organically built into the metallized shiny band that goes along the monitor’s bottom. The rest of the controls are placed on the side panel with all their labels. This is not handy and is going to be irritating until you learn the positions of the buttons by heart. However, this solution helped clear the monitor’s front panel from any buttons or labels. There’s a downside to everything in life.
