17 inch multimedia LCD

In our last LCD monitor round-up (May 2003) we were highly impressed by the inexpensive yet good-quality 15in monitor that Impact Systems was able to provide. In our February 2004 edition, we looked at one of its latest offerings, the 17in CMV CT-723A multimedia monitor, which offers a good picture for its competitive $965 price tag.

In our tests it displayed still graphics and moving pictures with good clarity and colour. Even though the monitor has an auto-adjust button, we did have to adjust the colour temperature, brightness and contrast manually because the automatic settings were too bright. The response time of the unit is quoted as being 16ms, and in our tests it played DVD movies and games without the slightest effect of ghosting or blurring during subtle or fast-paced scenes. In fact, it is a great monitor for watching movies and playing games, and its viewing angle is very acceptable.

For connectivity, the monitor has a VGA input and an external power supply. The hinged stand allows the monitor to be wall-mounted easily (VESA standard), but it does not accommodate being tilted forward when the monitor is deskbound, which may hinder some users. The positive aspects of this monitor are its warranty and dead pixel policy, which guarantees a zero dead pixel count over a three-year, on-site period.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
