Slick and tough LCD: Eview

Panasonic's new eView LCD monitor is one of the best-looking 17in units currently on the market, and its build quality is very good.

Panasonic eView

It's one of the few LCD monitors available to ship with a glass panel as a standard feature, which protects the LCD panel itself from physical damage. This makes it perfect for environments where danger lurks in the form of prodding fingers or inadvertently hurled objects and spilled liquids. Places such as financial institutions, medical centres, educational facilities and childcare centres are prime candidates for a monitor such as this, but the home user will also love its picture quality and performance.

In our tests the eView produced ex--cellent colours and was very crisp via an analogue connection. The glass panel did not restrict the viewable angle of the screen from either side, although glare was highly visible depending on how the screen was positioned in relation to our room lighting. The 16ms response time urged us to extensively test its gaming capabilities, and we're sure that if you're a keen gamer you will find this monitor very enjoyable.

For connectivity, the eView has only a DVI-I port. It features built-in speakers and an external power supply, which is one of the reasons it is so slim. If you don't have a DVI-I or DVI-D connection on your graphics card, then you can use the supplied DVI to VGA cable. The ends of both the DVI to VGA and the DVI (which is also supplied) cables are brilliantly designed at right angles to facilitate their connection at the rear of the monitor.

This eView has a three-year on-site warranty and details of its pixel policy are provided on Panasonic's Web site.

In brief: Panasonic eView (TX-LCD17JAGBLK)

This 17in LCD monitor is perfect if you're looking for a model with plenty of style and robustness, as well as good overall performance.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
