Conclusions on the CM821F display

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 CM821F 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 monitor.

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 right.

Weight is a large factor with displays of this caliber, and the CM821F is definitely not a lightweight piece of equipment. At almost 70lbs it is difficult to move around, and even remove from the box. Unlike other 21" CRT displays, Hitachi have made efforts to decrease the overall footprint of the display. In fact comparing it against my current 19" ADI reveals that the two are just about the same volume.

One last point of clarification, you may have heard that Hitachi is getting out of the CRT business. Well this is true, but it does not mean that they have stopped making monitors. Where the confusion lies is in the term "CRT." Hitachi is moving away from manufacturing the actual glass tubes which go into their monitors. They will continue to manufacture and sell CRT displays, and support existing products.

With CRT displays going the way of the dodo in the face of decreasing LCD prices it really doesn't make sense to get a traditional curved display anymore. Companies like Hitachi and KDS for example offer very good quality flat face displays that are well worth the few extra bucks, for the improved display quality and visual representation.
