    LG Flatron L194WS 19 Wide LCD Monitor

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    LG has the slogan Life’s Good and advertises under the statement of “offering the most extraordinary experiences imaginable.” LG has a design philosophy that focuses on innovation and delivering high-quality products to improve the life of their customers. Today we are going to see whether the L194WS Wide LCD monitor meets our expectations. This wide 19” hi-tech monitor can be had for around €200 (£130, $290).

    Lately monitors based on LCD-TFT technology have taken over the marketplace. During the past few years, the trend was to aim for really fast response times (lower ms is better). Some people went way too far, ignoring other factors, such as brand reputation, contrast ratio, native resolution, monitor dimension, etc. I’m here to announce that the race toward the fastest response times is over.

    Not so long ago a new competition started in the game of searching for eye-catching high-quality LCD monitors. People have realized that it’s not all about milliseconds, because the response time was almost always better than satisfactory. Also, nowadays most of the popular manufacturers have 5ms and 2ms response times for all of their models, including budget, mid-end, and high-end.

    Therefore, the decisive factor of this generation’s LCD monitors is contrast ratio. And we can’t forget about the wide panoramic design. It’s an absolute advantage. Contrast ratio, on the other hand, is really important, almost crucial. This is what makes the black really black and the white blatantly white. It plays a major role in the display of color shades. A “decent” monitor with an advanced contrast ratio does wonders.

    LG was a pioneer in this particular field of LCD monitors, innovating and delivering an astonishing 5000:1 with DFC (Digital Fine Contrast) on Flatron f Engine type panels. LG designed and incorporated the world’s first picture-enhancing chip into LCD monitors. Their technology is called DAFI™ and it features RCM and ACE – all of these turn their products into amazing performers that display the most vivid colors.

    RCM stands for Real Color Management. It helps to display more distinct and clearer colors. ACE stands for Adaptive Color Enhancement; this function enhances the brightness and contrast to deliver optimal pictures.

    Additionally, this particular model has a built-in function called 4:3 Wide ARC – Aspect Ratio Control. This helps to maintain the original 4:3 aspect ratio of images without sacrificing quality by eliminating distortions. Characters won’t be distorted either, which is just as well because if a specific video game doesn’t have wide support, then this can be emulated well.

    So when the time came for me to purchase a new LCD monitor, after a bit of research and market inspection, I concluded that I’m going to pick up the LG Flatron L194WS 19” Wide one. I’ve opted for this one mostly because of its acceptable price, really impressive specifications, and the quality technology used.

    Here you are going to read a review of this monitor. Let’s begin – turn the page!
