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

 

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.

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

Weak analog light gray scale performance. Lacks cable management.

The Planar PX1910M is a good choice if you're ready to move up to a 19-inch LCD monitor for the home or office, especially if your desktop is equipped with a DVI-out graphics card. At $469 it's not cheap, but in terms of performance and features, it's...

Planar PL1910M

 

A reasonable value for a 19-inch LCD monitor.

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.

Planar PL1910M 19-inch LCD

 

The Planar PL1910M performs decently, but you may be turned off by the fact that it can't be adjusted.

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...

Consumer review (tigerdirect.com)

Very good monitor.

 

I bought a second one after having used onefor 2 years. Although the speakers sound bad,I don't care. I buy monitors for the screen,not the sound. I don't expect high qualitysound from a flat screen monitor enclosure.

Planar Pl1910M-BK 19

 

Display very good. Speakers are junk as previously noted. The output drops off at low frequencies, and at 150Hz and below there is relatively no output. I am hearing impaired - i need both the lows as well as the highs. However, using the front 3.5mm...
