    Westinghouse LCM-17v2 Monitor


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Flat panel monitor prices have come down to the point that they’re nearly on a par with CRTs. That was music to my budget when I finally decided I’d had enough monitor envy staring at the flat panel I use at work. Even so, I was very surprised to see a familiar name that looked out of context for computer equipment: Westinghouse? Today we’re looking at the Westinghouse LCM-17v2, a 17” flat panel TFT-LCD monitor with built-in speakers.

    Doesn’t Westinghouse make refrigerators? I supposed I’d feel reassured if I ever had any reason to overclock a monitor (yeah right!), but this particular 17 inch model caught my attention with a sweet price and a nice list of features:

    • 1280 x 1024 resolution
    • Fast 14 ms response time
    • Bright 350 cd/m2
    • Wide viewing angle
    • 350:1 contrast ratio

    I understood that these were pretty good figures, so I ordered it online to pick up at the store (Best Buy). I was half expecting to see it in one of those really fancy, impressive looking boxes that really show off the product, rather like my CRT came in. I was, shall we say, a tad disappointed:

    The disappointment didn’t last very long, though – just long enough for me to pick up the box and settle it easily on my passenger seat for the drive home. The box, which includes more than just the monitor (as you’ll see in a minute), weighed less than one of our own monitors here at work. For you curious types and picture hounds, here’s the one I use at the office:

    Oh, and did I mention that the Westinghouse monitor includes built-in speakers? So you certainly can’t tell a book by its cover. Let’s open this one up, shall we?
