Abstract: Differences do exist which separate the high-end from the more value oriented products, but the visual results are less dramatically affected.

Final Conclusions

While the Cornea MP704 is not the most advanced piece of LCD glass you can get today, it does offer a pretty good display at a very affordable price. It is interesting to note that in comparisons with a few of the more recent Samsung LCD's we've looked at, that there are some visible differences in LCD quality. With the Cornea MP704 display off, the LCD screen has a greenish look to it, while comparably, the more advanced 191T for example is jet-black.

What this difference translates into on the screen is hard to say, as nothing is immediately evident, but it may be worth noting so we mention it here.

As a value-oriented display the Cornea MP704 is positioned to consumers with a low price point first, and features second. As it only has an analog connection, no removable base, and little in the way of other added-value points. It is hard to compare it with brand name displays which also throw style and design into the mix.

A listed contrast ratio of 400:1 is very good to see, and means that this monitor is at least in step with the times. The brightness or luminance rating of 250cd/m2 is fairly standard so there are no complaints from us there either.

The only problem I can see with this display on the technical level is the rather narrow viewing angles. I suppose we have been spoiled by the other 17" displays we have had the chance to review first hand, but when it comes to working on the display they can make a big impact. The up viewing angle of 40 degrees is a bit short especially.

Bottom line, the Cornea MP704 in its black case is an analog only LCD display designed for the value conscious consumer. It offers no removable base, or swivel, no extraneous features - just one 17" LCD display. The pared down nature of the unit is refreshing and makes the MP704 good for utilitarian situations where basic features are all that is required. The display quality is very good, and we are glad to see that the display is in-line with current brightness and contrast levels.
