    Westinghouse LCM-17v2 Monitor - Do You Need to Feel in Control?


    (Page 4 of 5 )

    I mentioned the buttons across the front earlier. Clicking on the Menu button (all the way on the left) calls up a small window with various icons across the top of it that let you make adjustments to the display. The window goes away if you havenít done anything with it for ten seconds. Clicking on either one of the two buttons next to the menu navigates you through the icons. Click on the menu button again to actually go into the menu in which you want to make adjustments.

    You can make adjustments to the image, audio, color, language displayed on the monitorís menus, settings, and more. I had great fun playing around with many of these. For the image, you can adjust the brightness, contrast, clock, phase (focus), horizontal position, vertical position, and sharpness. In this menu, you get a bar display next to each item. You use the menu button to maneuver between items, and the two buttons next to it to increase or decrease their values (in single increments between 1 and 100; most of the settings were around 50).

    For the audio, you can either adjust the volume (this one goes all the way to 100) or turn the audio muting on or off. I didnít touch the color settings, but you could adjust the green, red, and blue, and choose between three different ďtemperaturesĒ of white. You could choose between eight languages, including three that just displayed Asian characters. The settings menu lets you adjust the position of the monitor menu window, restore the monitor to the factory settings, and more.

    If you donít like the idea of fiddling with a lot of controls to adjust the image in a noticeable way, thereís a quick way to brighten things up or tone them down. The fourth button from the left on the monitor is labeled Turbo. It lets you choose between three levels of backlighting: picture mode, text mode, and economy mode. Picture mode is brightest, while economy mode is least bright, and text is somewhere in between.
