REVIEW: Belinea 101920 (No. 111919)
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
If you expect your display to provide great image and color quality, wide viewing angles and fast response times, you are probably best served with a monitor of the category of all-rounders. Not too long ago, the only displays that meet the above criteria were those sporting an S-IPS panel. But then, in February 2005 to be exact, Eizo released the L778 which was the first LCD model to combine a VA panel with a new technology called "Overdrive". This significantly sped up the panel’s responsiveness and led to devices incorporating VA panel technology being recommended to gamers for the first time, too.
Today, there are several displays that combine a VA panel with Overdrive technology on the market. Among others, the some of the displays available are: ViewSonic VP191s (8ms), Eizo S1910-K, Fujitsu Siemens P19-2 and P20-2. One of the latest contestants is the new version of the Belinea 101920 (No. 111919), which houses an MVA panel with Overdrive by AUO. With a street price of around 400.00 Euros, the Belinea 101920 is currently the best priced device among all 19 inch Overdrive models.
If you are considering going ahead with the Belinea 101920, you should mind the following: There are a total of 3 different models that bear the name Belinea 101920 available in stores. Next to the actual model name, they all have an additional article number appended to them. Only the Belinea 101920 with the article number of 111919 matches the model used in this review. We can all kindly thank Maxdata for maintaining a model naming policy which could probably be hardly any more confusing for customers. For the future, we would advise them to use model name that are clearer and provide more insight.
In this detailed review, we want to clarify how Belinea 101920 (No. 111919) performs in everyday work, gaming and multimedia applications.
