The monitor may be one of the most important components of a computer, but it is still one of the most overlooked. Today, Johan HansÚn brings to you IMG's first (and hopefully not the last) LCD review. He put ViewSonic's VP171b 17" LCD to the test. Here is an excerpt from the review:
After the initial shock I ran around like a maniac wavering my rifle this way and that to see if it could leave any ghosts. And at that speed I can see some ghosting, but nothing that I haven't experienced on my CRT before, so I have to say that it performs excellent. Next, I tried both Unreal Tournament games at resolutions from 640x480 to the display's native resolution of 1280x1024, to see how the scaled up resolutions looked compared to the native resolution. I got my second positive surprise there, since the scaled up resolutions look really good. While they will never look as good as the native resolution, the result was fully acceptable. The worst case is 640x480, where the scaling can become most obvious in 3D games.For more information on the VP171b, read the rest of the review, which is linked below.
