Currently, the LCD size category of 19 inches is gaining increasing popularity - not least of all because according displays can already be obtained for less than 300 Euros in the meantime. However, what seems to be a bargain at first often turns out as a mispurchase, which is mostly the case when the cheap price simply refers to average quality. In releasing the M199D, AMW proves that this doesn’t necessarily have to be true all the time.

PRAD has thoroughly reviewed the inexpensive 19 inch AMW M199D for you, which already offers a DVI input and speakers at a price tag below 300 Euros. With its TN panel featuring a response time of 8 ms, this gadget is not only interesting for office use but also for gamers. Find out how well the AMW M199D performs in everyday use by reading on in the following review.

All results were established using the digital DVI input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which were established on the analog input (D-Sub) . Our test bed ran with a Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800pro .

Scope of Supply

The scope of supply includes a D-Sub cable, an audio cable, a power cable, as well as a user guide and a warranty card. A DVI cable needs to be purchased separately. After unpacking the display, it has to be plugged into the stand where it will snap in with a click.

At this point, we would like to mention that the monitor specs in the accompanying manual do not match the ones on the specs sheet. The specs sheet reads a contrast of 700:1, whereas the manual mentions a contrast ratio of 500:1. The dimensions of the device that are given in the manual are also incorrect; and this time, the values specified on the specs sheet are the correct ones.
