Some news about my quest for a lcd and belinea.
The belinea 10 19 20 is available on www.materiel.net since today. It is stated that it's the new one, although they don't give the "article 11 19 12" ref. ( if we can swear by it anyway ).
Myne has been shipped today, so i wont be long before i receive it.
Now precisely since the 25/01/05 we can find a news on www.hardware.fr, that says that we shoudn't forget the belinea 10 19 20 which is a good lcd and excellent for the films. So exactly what we all thought, and good news that it could be put forth with this news.
But... the news also states that it's a mva panel! I emailed the author of the news today and he told me that it's a guy responsible for the line of products at belinea france that told him so.
I just read the news yesterday and it rang immediatly a bell since i had seen on the french belinea site that the panel was a pva ( pdf document ). but when i tried to get the page the site was unavailable... i then turned to the uk one, and saw the pva spec for the "article 11 19 12" ref.
Today i try the french site again and it works, and what a surprise it has the spec for the old model! In fact after checking it seems that it's the only one in europe to display the old model specs! And it's even more surprising since i previously saw the new model's spec on this site.
All of this at the same time that http://www.materiel.net has new stocks of the model and at the same time of the news on a very popular french web site.
Very very strange, and not precisely reassuring. Has Belinea, in France, changed it's policy of transparency ? Or is it just an error from the guy from belinea who gave the information ( but then why the change on the french site with the old spec, and the pva panel spec not given any more ? ) ?
What do you think ?
