REVIEW: Fujitsu Siemens P26W-5 Eco
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
With the Scenicview P26W-5, Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) is bringing a monitor in the 26-inch class to the market which does not have a higher resolution that a 24-inch model at 1.920 x 1.200 pixels, but displays material as larger and easier to read through a larger pixel structure.
With three video inputs – DVI, D-Sub and HDMI – the Scenicview P26W-5 does not intend to be a multimedia display, but thanks to its HDMI input, it can work with consoles, DVD or Blu-Ray players.
Thanks to a high-quality IPS panel (In Plane Switching), the 26-inch model guarantees excellent colour reproduction and extensive viewing angles according to the manufacturer. In addition, Fujitsu Siemens is advertising the model as having an especially low level of power consumption: the monitor can save up to 50 percent energy in use thanks to the "ECO button". Furthermore, the P26W-5 does not consume any energy when switched off or in standby.
Direct rivals of the 26-inch FSC model include the NEC LCD2690WUXi and the LG W2600HP, which are both also based on IPS technology and both of which convinced us in Prad reviews with very good performances. Can the Scenicview P26W-5 keep up here?
The Fujitsu Siemens Scenicview P26W-5 comes well padded and packed in a large box. The base is already attached to the monitor so that the 26-inch model can be used immediately.
The 26-inch model comes already assembled in a large box.
As well as the huge screen, the box also contains a USB cable, an audio cable, a Getting Started guide, a guarantee card, a multi-lingual "book" containing safety instructions, a CD with software and power, DVI and D-Sub cables. As has now become the norm, the manual is included in PDF format on the CD.
