REVIEW: Fujitsu Siemens P19-2
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
While VA (Vertical alignment) panels have always been one step ahead when it comes to picture quality, contrast ratio and viewing angles, in terms of gaming capabilities, they have been inferior to IPS (In Plane Switching) and particularly TN (Twisted Nematic) panels. For some weeks now, there are accelerated VA panels. The new Overdrive technology makes pixels pick up the pace. Eizo's L778 was the first device featuring this new technology to enter the market und really managed to convince us in our detailed review.
The legendary Fujitsu Siemens P19-1A which still had an S-IPS but is enjoying great popularity, particularly among gamers, now has its highly anticipated successor. In this case, pixel acceleration is not called Overdrive, but Fujitsu Siemens named it ADCC. While on CeBIT, Fujitsu Siemens explicitly wanted to stress the importance that it is ADCC and not Overdrive what we are dealing with here. ADCC means Advanced Dynamic Capacitance Compensation. In order to keep terminology more simple, we are solely going to use the term Overdrive technology in the following text.
The left picture is showing the Fujitsu Siemens at its lowest possible setting. You can see the deviated foot on the right picture.
We had Eizo's model - the L778 - already available for a review at February so we can't compare the two of them directly. But we are also going to dive into how the Fujitsu Siemens with PVA plus Overdrive technology will perform against a classical PVA device (Eizo L768) and a top notch S-IPS model (Eizo L797) in this review.
All results issued in this review have been established by 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 GS FX6800 Ultra graphics card.
