I am currently looking for a 17inch TFT screen that would be suitable for watching DVDs. Has anyone any suggestions or experiences. I believe a lot of screens suffer from artefacts. Any observations on this?
That may have been so, when earlier manufacturers were trying to compete and keep their price down.
I think there should be no demonstrable fault with dud pixels these days. I' perfectly happy with one purchased from Novatech in their offers of over 12 months ago.
Simplistic you might say, but I looked at 5 screens from CorelDrw as soon as I got it. They were pure black, white, red, yellow and blue. No screen showed any sign of imperfections, at least not to my dimming eyes!
When looking for a TFT check the spec for response time a spec of 22ms or quicker is recommended for playing DVDs Or intense gaming slower response times give a blurry effect on rapid on screen movements
I have the AOC 17" TFT 25 ms response time and all movies/games and 3D mark test pass with flying colours. Excellent to view for many hours at a time each day with absolutely no eye strain or reflection from the screen, under all lighting conditions.
From the instant it comes on, the picture is perfect from corner to corner, no warm-up times, no fiddling with the controls to adjust the picture. just a perfect square display filling the screen. Very happy. j.
I invested in the HP f1703 TFT monitor and think its superb. One thing I have found though, in the evenings I tend to have the lights in the room on dim but the monitor is very bright even if the brightness control has been adjusted down. This made it difficult to see the keyboard (black keys). I have cured this with a minature fluorescent desk lamp from John Lewis which sits just above the monitor shining downwards to the keyboard.
My son-in-law and I both have a 15" Sampo TFT screen and they are magic. Son inlaw plays a lot of heavy games with no problems we bought in June and they were £225 from sampotech .com a swedish company miffie
