Hanns G W191D product picture


A relative newcomer to the Electronic's market hanns.h is part of the panel manufacturer, Hannstar Corporation and makes a range of low-cost Liquid Crystal Display monitors.

I had previously owned two months ago a nineteen inch Clear Resolution Technology screen which caused me some eye strain and wanted to upgrade to a more modern Liquid Crystal Display screen.

Company Background

hanns h are a taiwanese monitor manufacturer. The company website hannstarr.com states they started business back in nineteen ninety eight in manufacturing and designing Liquid Crystal Display Monitor's.The production is made in taiwan factories and in china. From a quality standard point of view, they meet the required technology Product standard's. The companies global business brand Customer's include sony, samsung, and many more too mention here. So far so good.

The Product

The nineteen inch screen came with a stand base which holds the monitor off the desk surface. The screen can be adjusted and moved easily left and right. This feature is really basic, there were no extras in terms of extra Universal Serial Bus port's.

Performance details

The monitor has a five milli second refresh rate. Nowadays most modern and much more expensive will have a slightly faster two milli second refresh rate. Picture quality. I have found no dead pixels on the monitor so far. The contrast ratio is a not so strong feature with this model as the brightness of the black fonts and colours is really not rich as I would have liked. From my zoom and eye view it really does work well for me based on the appearance of the Display. The main background colours are slightly brighter compared to my Clear Resolution Technology prouct. Having watched a dvd many times with this monitor I can honestly say that the viewing experience is really good as it displays authentic colours and genuine colour reproductions.

Advantages of hanns g w8180 monitor are that it is plug and play. No need to install anything apart from the initial Computer connection. I had to simply take the monitor out of the box and attach the Monitor to the base stand which was so straightforward. I then connected the monitor to the Power Supply and the Computer port's.

This Computer monitor saves so much Room and space that really do make the product a worthwhile purchase. My old Clear Resolution Technology used to take up a great deal of the desk space in my Computer Area. Now this problem is avoided by freeing up so much space.

Wide angle. By having a Wide Screen Monitor, has made it much more user friendly for myself to be able to surf online and to type letters and spreadsheets. By comparison to other smaller Totally Flat Technology and Clear Resolution Technology screen's, I have found that I dont have the problem of straining my eyes by having such a smaller and constrained focused view on the Monitor screen.

The cheap price is another factor, one hundred and ten Pounds including Tax and delivery from Amazon.co.uk. Amazon include a thirty Day return refund policy if not happy with the Product. I felt no need to return this at all.

The design of the speakers is really good as it is hidden within the silver bezel toward the bottom of the panel.

Combination of Analogue and digital dvi inputs so I would really believe that there is no short cuts in terms of quality standard's from this manufacturer. This certainly allows this Monitor to be included well and truly in the digital era.


The design of the Tubing, overall finish is not so spectacular. Here I noticed at the bottom of the panel the finish is not totally straight in terms on a horizontal axis

The menu for changing the colours,is not very pretty as a way of changing the colours scheme, or the brightness etc. The user here would have to rotate the panel to adjust the settings, as the Menu buttons are located to the right hand side of the panel. It is a disadvantage as there is no extra Compact Disc or user management Tool's that can tweak the colour schemes using the Computer.

Comparison's with other branded monitor's

It puts to shame my old Clear Resolution Technology screen in terms of everything. I would also believe that having used a Video seven monitor and sony, which are more expensive brands at Internet cafe's there is little difference in quality with the Hanns model I am reviewing here. The design is fairly standard for a Totally Flat Technology screen the outer bezel is silver in colour, somewhat standard in appearance compared to higher priced model's.

Extra Information

Built in/Hidden Speakers. This is a truely great product selling point I found as I did not no longer require the external speakers that I have used previously. Though for loudness I would need to keep them. Sound at two times one watt's, is not much sound.

Warrranty. Here is another Area which really helped me make my decision. Most if not all will have a one or two year warranty, this Hanns monitor has a three year warranty from the date of purchase. The warranty Card is written up in english, french, spanish, italian, polish, danish, hungarian, dutch, as well as scandanavian country instruction's. The warranty Card contains the companies United Kingdom repair center detail's.


In the medium future based on my experience I would happily pay this money for a reasonably good standard of Computer monitor. The price and performance strongly leads me perhaps to some long term loyalty with this Liquid Crystal Display brand. This model of monitor is far from the latest Technology using hi definition, Blu ray, and other higher specification for sound and audio. It also does not include a built in Webcam. Though at this low Price of one hundred and ten Pounds. I really can not find a major fault or something that would really put me off buying this.

Bottom Line

A low cost, no frills Wide Screen Computer Display Unit.
