Compaq TFT5010


If you've ever tried to watch a DVD on a laptop, you probably noticed the latency problem. CRTs give you a crisp signal and an accurate, attractive image, even with video or scrolling text. But LCDs still can't handle video well, which is why no...

Even without its touch-screen capability enabled, this is a good, all-purpose LCD monitor.

The touch-screen capability makes the TFT5010 ideal for kiosks. But even without the touch screen enabled, it's a good, all-purpose LCD monitor.

Product Specifications

For superior image quality in a small space, consider the Compaq TFT5010 flat panel monitor. This slim LCD display takes up a lot less room than a conventional CRT monitor. But a small package doesn't mean a small screen - the viewing area is a full 15 inches. Its size makes it perfect for crowded work areas, and the low heat, low emission LCD technology is well suited for clean room and hospital settings. Superior image quality, installation options and modern design make it a must-have for today's executive offices. The dazzling active matrix technology delivers brighter images and sharper focus than standard CRT monitors. Digital user controls allow customization of screen properties such as contrast, individual color control, color temperature and more. Automatic setup optimizes the picture, fine-tuning the TFT5010 for the best possible focus and clarity. The TFT5010 is especially smart for corporate environments or business areas where Compaq systems are in use. AssetControl saves time and support costs by allowing network administrators to track monitor inventory information, such as monitor make, serial number, and resolution modes, across a network. This capability is designed into Compaq monitors through DDC2B compliance, allowing the monitor and CPU to have two-way communication and distribute that information through the network, saving the time of physically checking each unit on location. In-Plane Switching technology gives this monitor remarkable 160 degree viewing angles. Plus, Compaq gives you three ways to use the TFT5010 - arm mount, wall mount, and standard mount. The arm mount frees up 100% of desk space and adds mobility - the monitor can be turned, angled, raised or lowered to suit the needs of one or more viewers. The wall mount hangs the display like a painting hangs on the wall - multiple monitors can be mounted on a wall in financial trading or other settings that require simultaneous access to a variety of applications. The standard mount is a pedestal with a small footprint to take up a minimum of desk space and allows tilt adjustment and pivot screen for viewing comfort. In addition, the security lock slot allows a cable to be attached to prevent theft of this appealing, mobile monitor. The TFT5010 looks great, works great, and would fit great in any spot where a monitor now sits.
