Introducing the new 22″ LCD monitor to the family!
A 22″ Widescreen CHIMEI monitor. Yes, CHIMEI (or Chi Mei Optoelectronics) is a taiwanise brand, like where most of your other computer parts comes from. 385 AUD spent on this.
What I really like about this monitor is the widescreen aspect as I can do massive macroing in CnC3 :p That besides the point, photoshoping pictures would be much easier and I can finally watch anime with super crazy resolutions. Using a resolution of 1680 X 1050. Finding wallpapers for this resolution is real hard.
There are 3 different default modes as well; Picture, Text and Economy Mode. Picture mode has the highest brightness settings, which should be used when doing image editing or if you just want to turn blind even faster :p Text mode uses normal brightness settings and Economy has the brightness of the backlight reduced.
I’m currently using Economy as Picture mode would really kill my eyesight :/
Over at the back, there are two inputs you can choose from. Using DVI-D to maximize the visual quality of course. The power cord’s over at the left side.
If you notice, over at the top right hand corner of the monitor in the first picture, you might realize that there’s a sticker on it. Yes, it’s the TCO certification sticker. You can read more about it over here <Link>. I think I’ll trust monitors that have the certification instead of having a brand name. My 17″ BENQ (bought in May 2005) had to be serviced once while my older 15″ NPS (bought in March 2003) is still working fine >_<
Also, thanks to those who have contributed to it! Especially mom and sis :)
