Hansol H750

This monitor also belongs to inexpensive models. The case is quite large, and so is the base that resembles the one of older monitor series from Samsung. Unlike the base from Samsung, though, this one allows only adjusting the screen tilt – no height adjustment or portrait mode. The case is thick, but the framing around the screen is narrow. The production quality is not impeccable as you can find some minor defects. For example, the case lacks robustness around the screen: if you press it with your finger, there appear dark stains on the matrix.

Hansol H750 comes equipped with an analog video input, an audio input and a headphones output, located at the backside, next to the inputs.

The menu offers just the basic set of options. There are 6 control buttons (without the power button), but two of them don’t work in the main menu and serve only to mute the sound (“Mute”) and set up the sound volume (“VOL”). You can quick-access auto-adjustment, brightness and contrast controls.

The menu offers three color temperatures: “User Color” (default, it corresponds to 7180K white and 9050K gray), “6500K” (it means 7040K white and 8430K gray), and “9300” (this one sets the color temperatures of white and gray to 11,500K and 14,980K, respectively).

The viewing angles are good enough, although this monitor is quite far from the ideal. White becomes yellowish at a sideways look, while black has a tincture of silver in itself. When viewed from below, the top of the screen seems dark, and when viewed from above – the bottom gets bright. So, I can’t say there is no discomfort at work, but you can get along with it.

Auto-adjustment works fine, but the process itself takes a lot of time, most of all our today’s testing participants: 10 seconds. Even the monitors from Samsung, which are often criticized for slow self-adjustment, do it in about 5 seconds.

By default, the contrast and brightness settings are both set to 80%. Screen brightness of 100nit is achieved by setting 63% brightness and 60% contrast. Brightness is regulated by power modulation of the backlight lamp with a frequency of around 190Hz.

The color reproduction is well set up. Only the dark tones are brighter than they should be.

The total response time of Hansol H750 is a little lower than the specified 25msec, but only on black-white-black transitions. If white is replaced with dark-gray, the response time grows up as usual. Anyway, it never exceeded 25-27msec, which was comparable to the allegedly faster 16msec matrixes. As I showed you in my previous article, such matrixes can be as slow as 30msec on some transitions, which is worse than “slow” 25msec matrixes can do.

Hansol H750 was rather average in terms of its contrast ratio. The level of black never went higher than 1nit, but also never plunged below 0.7nit. That’s not the worst result, but it is not the best, either.

The combination of low price and good characteristics makes Hansol H750 a good budget option. You can hardly expect any miracles from a budget model: the color temperature might be more precise, the auto-adjustment might work faster, and the level of black might be lower… Anyway, Hansol H750 deserves you attention in its price sector.
