True flat panel colours: Neovo

Buying on looks alone can land you in deep water in the IT market, and in no area is this more true than the flat panel sector. At first glance the Neovo looks every bit the office essential — its polished glass screen and fold-down stand both suggest that this is a display to be reckoned with. But in operation the Neovo reveals its true colours and, unfortunately, they aren’t pretty.

For the most part the Neovo’s specifications are middle of the road — the pixel pitch is 0.297mm and the native resolution is a comfortable 1024x768. The 400:1 contrast ratio and 250 cd/m2 brightness ratings are less than stunning, although the 160º viewing angle is good. The AG’s standout feature is the response time — the Neovo can refresh graphics in a mere 10-15ms, so it’ll be able to play video and games without any sign of flicker.

However, the omission of a digital connector marks out the S-15V as a screen with one foot in the past. The Neovo also fails to offer any USB ports, pivot or integrated audio facilities.

An almost impenetrable menu system made it difficult to find the screen’s ideal setup. Even when we did, the Neovo’s image quality and washed-out colour palette failed to measure up. Worst of all is the uneven focus and picture deterioration towards the corners. Even text output is marred by the erratic screen coverage.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
