Planar PX1910M


The $469 Planar PX1910M is one of the few monitors to include screen pivot software along with its physical pivot adjustment. The software, Pivot Pro, costs $40 if bought separately.

Full range of physical adjustments

Weekdays-only support policy

Planar's weekday-only support policy will be ample for business customers (13 hours should be enough for most office needs). But the lack of weekend support will frustrate the home user

Planar PX1910M


Type: Monitor, Native Resolution: 1280 x 1024 pixels x pixels, Screen Size: 19 inches

Good DVI performance. Highly adjustable. Excellent viewing angle performance.

Weak analog light gray scale performance. Lacks cable management.

The Planar PX1910M boasts a fast pixel response rate, plenty of features, and better-than-average image quality when used with a digital signal. However, its analog performance was flawed.

Planar PL1910M


Type: Monitor, Aspect Ratio: 5:4, Native Resolution: 1280 x 1024 pixels x pixels, Screen Size: 19 inches

Good viewing-angle performance. Analog and digital signal inputs. Above-average speakers

Tilt-only stand. Difficult-to-read front-panel button legends. On-screen menu harder than average to use.

The PL1910M has a low price for a 19-inch LCD monitor and comes with a midrange package of features and performance. You get a little more than you would from a bargain-brand model, but it falls short of the top-level performance you'd find in a higher-pr

Planar PL1910M


The soot-black Planar PL1910M doesn't have the razor-thin lines of the 20-inch Sony SDM-S204 or the height and adjustability range of the 19-inch Philips 190P5. Instead, it is stationary and only as tall as it is wide--16.5 by 16.6 inches. The...

Affordable; has nice speakers.

Total lack of adjustability.

The Planar PL1910M's lack of adjustability could be a problem for some users; otherwise it's an adequate business LCD.

Planar PX1910M


The 19" Planer PX-1910M was originally designed to meet the demanding needs of corporate and government executives - it is no small coincidence then, that the monitor will satisfy most of our requirements as well. This "Best Of" monitor's cool...

Great video, terrible audio


If you're looking for an inexpensive 19" LCD with a low-level set of speakers for basic office work, this should do it for you. I paid about $150. While the display does adjust on an angle, there is no height adjustment available.

I like the large viewing area, it's very crisp and bright. Additionally, this monitor will work with the Mac Pro towers. The cable management is a nice touch

I do not like the quality of the audio that comes out of the on board speakers. It's very quiet and muffled. If you're looking for alerts during data processing, these are fine, but for anything more I find them to be unacceptable
