So we've just presented
you with a ton of information and a big heap of specs, screen shots and
observations. What does all this mean? Well first off, compared to its brother
display the CM810, the CM828 is much better. The control over the Moire is
superb, and the convergence is some of the best we've seen in a large-screen display.
The onscreen display
gives almost complete control over just about every imaginable feature and
setting that a CRT display has, and with that control you could spend quite a
bit of time making minor adjustments to yield the optimal display configuration.
Personally, I'm satisfied with the factory default settings as they seem to have
gotten just about everything (except brightness) spot on.
What is bad about this display? For once I'm
at a loss to find something really lacking with a display. Usually we are
blessed with a sloppy display feature that just begs for some good ranting, but
alas the CM828 is short on shortcomings. About the only feature that could
really stand to be improved (relatively speaking) is the focus in the outer
corners. With the display set at a resolution of 1600x1200 pixels and at 32bit
setting the text is ever so slightly less sharp.
Other than that one small point it's
difficult to find any significant deficiencies with the Hitachi CM828 display -
except that perhaps the brightness distribution could be improved upon for perfect uniformity. The CM828 truly represents the top of the line in what Hitachi
has to offer for 21" displays, and easily earns our seal of approval.
