REVIEW: Fujitsu Siemens P19-1A
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
Gamers have been eagerly awaiting gaming suitable 19 inch LCDs for months. After S-IPS technology managed to make an outstanding impression in leagues of other panel sizes, everybody is anxious about how 19 inch displays will perform in this respect. Along with the P19-A, we'll also be reviewing the Iiyama ProLite E481S. Despite the fact that both models will be judged in separate reviews, we are still going to compare the two of them directly. Unfortunately the NEC/Mitsubishi 1960NXi wasn't able to arrive for this shootout in time. All models incorporate the identical LG-crafted panel, thus basically only differ by features and design.
All results issued in this review have been established by using the digital input. Merely the analog image quality has been tested with an analog connector. All reviews have been carried out utilizing a Gainward 750 XP Geforce4 Titanium graphics card.
Together with the display we received a detailed manual, a D-Sub cable, a DVI-cable, a power cable, an audio cable, pivot software und a driver disk. Unfortunately the power cable won't be of much use for most people. Since the cable is only intended as "loop through" for the power supply unit of your PC, a power plug for regular power outlets is missing.
The Fujitsu Siemens P19-1A solely comes along in beige (computer gray) color. The monitor seems compact, but not bulky. The frame measures 2 cm at the top and 2 cm on the sides. The speakers are built into the lower frame which is why it measures up to 5,4 cm here. The distance between the lower edge of the frame and the desk amounts to 6.7 cm in the lowest position. So the actual picture sets off at a height of 12.1 cm. The case front appears simple. Merely the control elements are silvery bordered. The only thing that's a pity is the fact that the display can't be lowered in height any further.
In direct comparison the Iiyama ProLite E481S-W appears more gracile, the Fujitsu Siemens however - although bearing the same color - holds a slight aesthetical advantage. This - among other things - is due to the silver-bordered control elements. But since aesthetics are subject to individual taste, you should form your own opinion on this one. The Prad.de editorial department however slightly favors the Fujitsu-Siemens here.
