    Westinghouse LCM-17v2 Monitor - Some Assembly Required


    (Page 3 of 5 )

    The base has some tabs and slots that fit into the neck of the monitor. It took about five minutes of shifting and pushing, but I finally heard a loud click and felt the base settle securely into place. At least it was really easy to tell which part of the base went where; the front features a nice large depression for putting little office supplies like paper clips and such.

    Here’s the monitor attached to its base. Look carefully and you’ll be able to see the depression I was talking about. I’d also like to note that all the control buttons across the front are clearly marked and easy to deal with, from the Menu button on the left all the way to the Power button on the right. You should just be able to make out a sort of “mesh” effect in the frame at the bottom of the monitor; that’s for the speakers.

    The next step is to attach three cords to the back of the monitor: the audio cord, the VGA cable, and the DC power adapter cord. The instruction manual is pretty good in its explanation of how to hook everything up; the only way it could have been improved is if it included either pictures or diagrams of the cords. As it is, I was able to figure out which cord was which, and was very glad that the manual told me explicitly where to plug everything in. All connections were clearly marked.

     

    Here’s a picture of the back of the monitor with all the cables hooked up.

    Speaking of cables, I’d like to mention once again how well these were packaged. In particular, the cable that connects the monitor with the computer came in for some extra care. The pins were covered with a hard plastic cover on both ends, and the ends were wrapped with a slightly cushiony material that was held in place by rubber bands. You can see some of that in the picture above; here’s another picture to show you explicitly what I mean:

    In this picture, both cable ends are unwrapped, but the one on the left still has its hard plastic covering. The one on the right has been removed. The plastic cover was on securely, but came off easily.

    And here’s a picture of the monitor in its new home:

    It looks like it’s practically swimming in the space. That’s because I have a corner-style desk at home, and the corner was taken up with a CRT with a comparable screen size.
