REVIEW: Fujitsu Siemens W19-1
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
Now that the 16:10 format has arrived in the 19 inch sector as well, we want to address ourselves to reviewing the Fujitsu Siemens W19-1. This gadget is equipped with a TN panel providing a resolution of 1440 x 900 and, at a street price of around 300 Euros, seems quite affordable, too.
So let’s find out how the W19-1 can perform in everyday applications. In order to do so, we are going to cover the aspects TV, DVD, Office, Internet and Gaming.

All results issued in this review have been established using the digital input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which have been established on the analog input. Our test bed ran with a Gainward GS FX6800 Ultra graphics card.
The Fujitsu Siemens W19-1 ships including a multilingual printed manual, a sheet with terms of warranty, a stand, a power cable, a digital DVI cable, an analog D-sub cable and an audio cable. There is no driver to be found, neither on CD nor on diskette. However, the Fujitsu Siemens W19-1 is recognized as a Plug and Play monitor who makes the installation of a driver dispensable. The manual is not exactly detailed and merely informs about technical specifications and how to mount the stand and gives advice on troubleshooting. Information on the OSD’s functions and configuration possibilities are missing. Most of the manufacturers at least include a more detailed manual on CD, but unfortunately this is something Fujitsu Siemens decided to omit in the case of this model.
