ViewSonic VP912

Although the model name has remained the same, ViewSonic has released two versions of the 19" VP912. In the more recent revision, the company replaced the antireflective screen with a new, antiglare screen. When we tested it, the first version had ou...

ViewSonic VP191b

ViewSonic's venerable 19" VP191b continues to hold its own against newer LCD models. Its image quality is competent but not extraordinarily good, falling into the middle ranks of current models. We found the display's balance generally pleasing, thou...

LaCie Photon19vision

LaCie's first 19" LCD, the Photon19vision, has the features you'd expect from years of experience in monitor-making--and with good reason. Devotees of LG displays may recognise the LightView screen presets, which address not only the type of image on...

Hyundai ImageQuest L90D+

Priced at $699 when we reviewed it, Hyundai's ImageQuest L90D+ is very inexpensive for a 19" monitor. It comes as a pleasant surprise that this budget model offers height and pivot adjustments--features more common on higher-end monitors. Height adju...

LCD specs: Not so swift

Faster LCD pixel response time is supposed to make scrolling, video, and games move more smoothly. Unfortunately, the response time figures that vendors quote aren't particularly useful for comparison shoppers.

ViewSonic VX724

The ViewSonic VX724 uses the company's Amplified Impulse technology, which overdrives the LCD panel's electronics to produce faster transitions between shades of grey. In theory, accelerated grey-to-grey transitions reduce ghosting and blurring of mo...

Olympus C-7000 Zoom

Next to the massive cameras typical of its class, this sleek metal model looks positively petite. It's less than half the weight of most other advanced cameras.

LCD adds a dimension to the desktop

If you work with 3D images, but red-and-blue-lensed glasses don't fit into your dress code, take a look at Sharp's LL-151-3D. With the push of a button labeled "3D," this 15-inch LCD monitor switches from regular to stereoscopic display, letting you ...

InterComm fuses messaging, collaboration

The line between instant messaging and collaboration software blurs further with the release this week of InterComm: IM buddies can assemble as groups, share files, and show (or hide) their availability to different groups.

Yahoo updates Messenger

Yahoo is updating its Messenger program with new avatars, emoticons, and other features for fun, but it is also providing ways to conceal the frivolities and keep instant messages more businesslike when desired.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
