Testing:

To test this monitor, I'm going to be using the DisplayMate Multimedia Edition program. Here is a tidbit about the DisplayMate Company:

"DisplayMate Technologies is widely recognized throughout the computer and video industries as the worldwide leader in video diagnostics, which are used in the calibration, testing, evaluation and optimization of image and picture quality for all types of displays, such as CRTs, analog and digital LCDs and plasma displays, video projectors, microdisplays, HDTVs and more."

This program is a great way to gauge the performance of this monitor. I'll be comparing this monitor to the BenQ FP241VW 24" Widescreen monitor to see which is the better of the two.

"This selection will show you how to properly and precisely set all of the controls on your display and video board to produce Optimum Geometry, Grayscale and Contrast. All of the other picture quality enhancements in DisplayMate assume that this procedure has been followed carefully."

"The Tune-Up Program further improves and enhances display picture quality by searching for every possible potential weakness of a computer display at high sensitivity, and then showing how to improve the image at every step. The program selections include the following:

  • Geometry and Distortion

  • Screen Pixel Resolution
