The Fujitsu Siemens P20-2 is the bigger brother of the P19-2 and is one the first 20 inch displays to offer an S-PVA (Super Patterned Vertical Alignment) with Overdrive. The Overdrive technology that Fujitsu Siemens employs in this model was - just like the panel itself - developed by Samsung and is also known as ADCC (Advanced Dynamic Capacitance Compensation).

S-PVA type panels have made a name for themselves by delivering great color quality, good resolution of grey shades, high contrast ratios and wide viewing angles. The response time of S-PVA panels, however, is rather unsuited for fast moving content. Overdrive, a technology which has been around for some months by now, has successfully set out to accelerate the response time of LCD panels, particularly those of the VA type. Now let’s go ahead and take look on how the Fujitsu Siemens P20-2 performs in everyday work, gaming and multimedia applications.

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 PowerPack! Ultra/2600 Golden Sample and a Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card.

Scope of supply

Together with the Fujitsu Siemens P20-2 we received a manual "first steps", a sheet with warranty notes, a CD, a DVI-D cable, a D-Sub cable, an audio cable and a power cable. The CD contains a detailed manual in PDF format, Windows monitor drivers, Fujitsu Siemens Screenmanager software DisplayView and a pivot software called Pivot Pro, the software LiquidView for adjusting the Windows desktop and a testing / configuration tool called LCD-Adjust. A detailed manual in printed form was not included.
