On Screen Display

At the maximum (and preferred) resolution setting the pixel to pixel ratio is exactly 1:1, and the resulting image is very crisp. At 848x480 the picture is pretty garbled, even when we adjusted the setting as best possible. A resolution of 800x600 comes in fairly blurry without any adjustments, but sharpens up slightly after the display is automatically calibrated. The effect isn't so much sharpening the image, as more equally spacing the image out over the screen.

Confused? The next example, with the display set to 640x480 is a better example of what visually happens. With the resolution at this setting the image is very blurry, and uneven. After automatically adjusting the display the 570S TFT is a fair bit sharper, and legible. The adjustments which take place have to do with how the picture is broken up over the set number of pixels. CRT doesn't have this setting, because they operate on a totally different principle.

The backlight on the display is good for about 10,000 hours before the manufacturer recommends it be replaced. We found that the intensity of the backlight was very even. White pages were evenly toned throughout. A solid black background showed no shadowing or inconsistencies whatsoever.

The full list of resolutions and frequencies are listed below:

Resolution Freq Hor. Freq Ver. Pixel Clock Standard
640x350 31.5kHz 70Hz 25.2MHz VGA
720x400 31.5kHz 70Hz 28.3MHz VGA

The On Screen Display for the 570S TFT is fairly average, with navigation via the five buttons on the front bezel...
