Flipping the display around to the rear we can see where the cables
connect is at the side of the display
and not the bottom. By their thin nature,
most LCD displays get flipped over onto their heads so that the cable connectors
can be installed by the user.
relocation of the power, analog and digital signal cable connectors to the side of the unit,
it is substantially easier to gain access and set up the unit from
the get-go. A small plastic cover slips over the cable connectors and wires, and
this hides everything from the users perspective so there is really no
loss as far as we are concerned.
This is also something
older folks will probably appreciate, as the level of accessibility is greatly
improved over standard display connector locations.

With the feathery weight of most LCD
panels, a lot of manufacturers skip on rotating stands. Hitachi have shown us a few models
in the past which have come with integrated left and right swivel bases, and the
CML190SXWB follows suit.
panel will rotate to either side about 45 degrees which should be ideal for
most situations where you need to move the display to allow a co-worker a better
view of a chart or website for example. It's also worth mentioning at this point that
the viewing angles are 85/85/85/85 degrees (up/down/left/right) so the display is already pretty well endowed
in this area.
There are no mechanisms built into this particular stand for vertical height adjustments (very
few displays seem to anyway) but the tilt mechanism will give you about 2
degrees down, and 25 degrees back.
the vertical viewing angles are on the order of 85 degrees, so image colour
remains pretty good at extreme angles.
We've tried to show the
range of the tilting on the Hitachi CML190SXWB to give you an idea of what to
