Well I have the LP1965 a few days so a review is in order ;).
So few boring details:
AUO P-MVA panel (I believe it is M190EG01 V0 - OSD shows HP LP1965 AUO M008).
0.294 mm pixel, 16.7mio barv, 1280x1024
respinse time : 6ms grey-to-grey, 20ms rise-and-fall
pivot, 10cm height adjustment, -5°/30° slanting, swivel
brightness 300 cd/m2
2x DVI priklop
supports 75Hz (no tearing noticed so far)
Initialy I bought kupil LG 1970HR (for 300eur) ...since the prad review graded it as very good
...however the picture on mine was crap...upper side was very very dark ...so
I returned it and for 30eur more I got HP.
Comparison with my old CRT monitor Samsung 959NF:
As for ergonomics all I can say...WAAAHOOOOO ...10cm hight adjustable,
slanting, swiveling, pivot ...all you can ask for :D.
The quality of build is very high, no squiking, all parts fitted together nicely
(not like Samsung 940Fn I almost bought X(). The buttons on the front are
very good and have a high quality feel ...all in all....much better build than
with LG. Cables are managed in the same was as with LP2065. The monitor
is virtually silent, and has no dead pixels.
The fool is made of metal ...and very heavy and stable ...as with LP2065.
Now to the main part, display. The monitor I received suffers from backlight
bleeding ...quite a lot it seems from the below pictures ...but in everyday use
this is only noticable if used in a dark room with a dark (black) background.
Annoying ..but can be lived with
Prad.de ghosting test...well this was a little dissapointment, the 2-3mm trail
is clearly visible ...it gets a little beeter when the monitor is properly warmed
...but stil not perfect ...for example...at work I use few years old LG L1810B
with IPS panel and 25ms rise-and-fall response...and no trail is visible
However, in reality, I didn't notice any ghosting or corona effect in any of the
tested games (Far Cry, Gothic 3 and Neverwinter Nights 2) ...also one of my
friends tested this with his Viewsonic 191b and also noticed the few mm trail
...but on the LG 1970HR...no trail notices...thanx to 2ms rt.
If anybody knows about any other ghosting test I would gladly test it and
Colors are very nice and sharp..eventhough my old crt has more vivid colors
...thanx to Samsung MagicBright ...however this can change once you set
brightness/contrast differently ...current settings are at 42 and 65 (but the
pictures were made at 47/74)
Note that both the crt and the lcd are wired to the same computer and that
the brightness settings in the games were made initially for the crt monitor.
HP LP1965 shows around 15ms lag ...compared to the Samsung ...but not
All-in-all, for 330eur a very good monitor ...backlight bleeding is annoying if
you know where to look...but this can be fixed at a local HP servis shop if
If someone can translate this into german...please go ahead...if I do in you
will all need a dictionary :O
