REVIEW: Formac Gallery 1900 raven black
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
If you are looking for a display with a touch of individuality, the manufacturer Formac might just have what you’re looking for. Formac offers 19 and 20 inch displays that come in a design which is to those of Apple’s Cinema Displays.
The Formac Gallery 1900 raven black we reviewed makes use of a MVA panel with Overdrive. It can thereby be assigned to the category of all-rounders such as the Belinea 101920 (No. 111919) or the Fujitsu Siemens P19-2. An increasing number of manufacturers are currently adopting this technology and many observant customers are approving of this. After all, Overdrive is finally compensating MVA/PVA panels’ previously only drawback of too slow response times, and this makes these monitors an interesting option for applications with fast moving content such as DVD or games now.
In terms of its outward appearance, the Formac clearly stands out of the crowd. Now let’s see whether the same thing can be said about working on this monitor as we fire up a variety of applications on it.
All results issued in this review have been established using the digital input. Our test bed ran with a Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2600 Golden Sample and a Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro.
The Formac Gallery 1900 raven black is delivered in a packaging (58,5 x 66,5 x 30,5 cm) which can be regarded as impressively bulky for a 19 inch display.
