Final Evaluation Notes & Conclusions

Connecting a newly bought LCD display up to an older analog video card used to be a necessity, but now it just seems like a waste of good digital signal processing technology.

The Hitachi CML190SXWB springs to life with perfect picture and display when connected via a DVI cable, and provides almost perfect picture via the Analog cable. The choice is yours, but we highly recommend upgrading to a video card which gives DVI capabilities if you are currently without.

Boasting a roomy screen size of 19" and a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels, it seems like a waste to use anything but the DVI port, but for the late bloomers the 15-pin analog connection is a welcome sight I suppose. The display features a 500:1 contrast ratio, brightness of 250 nits and wide viewing angles of 170 degrees horizontal/vertical.

Overall, I'd have to say we are very satisfied with this latest display from Hitachi. The previous LCD monitor we reviewed from this manufacturer fell below the line of what we believe they are capable of producing, so it was reassuring to see that CML190SXWB set the trend straight once more.

Pixel response times are listed at 25ms (15ms rise time, 10ms fall time) which seems about right. A quick check of the screens performance in Unreal Tournament 2003 (a basic FPS game where ghosting can cause potential game play problems) gave us a good overall impression. Naturally, really hard-core gamers will want to go CRT as colour depth and refresh rates are technically more diverse.

The price of the 19" Hitachi CML190SXWB is $1200USD which is about average for a generously sized LCD display for work, or for home. The Hitachi CML190SXWB has much to offer and would be well worth considering.

You tell us, do you think this LCD display is as good as we think it is? Come to the forums and let us know!
