CAN YOU READ THIS? Can you really read this? Is the text sharp? Is the image crisp and vibrant? If it is as clear as crystal and sharp as a pins head then you probably don’t need to look for another monitor just yet!
If on the other hand the screen is flickering, the text blurred and dull (endless hours on ciao do not count!) and you’re sure you aren’t drunk then it may be time for a look at a new monitor.
Purchasing a monitor is one of the most important purchases you can make that will enhance your PC experience. Whether it’s downloading vibrant images off the web, editing photos, analysing large chunks of data or reading text; a good quality monitor is essential. Investing in a good quality monitor initially will provide you with hours of stress free viewing without the need for frequent updates. Whilst computers can get outdated before you’ve even had chance to get it out of the box; a monitor offers long term investment and allows many happy hours of viewing!
The BASICS – Terminology
· CRT = Cathode Ray Tube (most monitor specifications list the CRT size e.g. 17”. Please note a 17” CRT size listed for a 17” monitor does not mean that the viewable screen area is 17”. The viewable area is always smaller, probably only 15 –16 inches. Check “viewable area” before buying. The viewable area is quoted separately on all monitors these days.· Aperture grille pitch (or dot pitch) = this is measured in mm, and is typically 0.24 - 0.28mm. It is the amount of space between each pixel. The smaller the dot pitch, the sharper the image. So a 0.24mm dot pitch will provide a sharper picture than a monitor with a 0.28mm dot pitch.
· Refresh rate = this value is expressed in Hertz (Hz). It is the number of times per second the screen is refreshed (redrawn). To avoid flickering, the refresh rate should be at least 72 Hz. Most modern monitors show a refresh rate of 75Hz, which means the image is refreshed 75 times per second.THE MITSUBISHI DIAMOND PRO
I bought this 17” monitor 14 months ago with my PC (from MESH) the deciding factors for me whilst making this purchase were, high specification, a reputable customer service, warranty and price, without compromising on quality. I had looked at similar specification models from SONY, IIYAMA etc but MITSUBISHI came out top due to introducing a fine product at a fraction of the cost! MESH were also good enough to let me choose the monitor of my choice as opposed to the one being shipped out in standard PC packages and gave me a discount, well it helps if you haggle:)Since my purchase of this monitor Mitsubishi have merged with NEC and the new company is called NEC-Mitsubishi.
