Monitor S-IPS LCD NEC 1970NX

NEC 1970NXContinuing the theme of the professional (or rather much more quality than cheaper TN + Film) matrix for LCD monitors. Before us is the NEC 1970NX with S-IPS matrix from LG-Philips. NEC is recognized as a company, occurring primarily among rival the quality of EIZO LCD monitors. Corps. Many quality craftsmanship – a solid stand with two degrees of freedom, where the modification 1970NXp has three degrees (+ Pivot). Color screen is white, the front frame is silver with a slight shade – ideal for Apple monitor configuration. Picture. Much can be said for the picture than S-IPS monitor, but it is important to be seen. I can briefly summarize that a better picture rarely seen except by another S-IPS monitor (HP 2035). Very soft and saturated, realistic colors, conduct of sunlight. Angle monitor earns black with violet tinge, which is typical of expensive S-IPS matrix. Red, blue and green are just fantastic, even in comparison with S-PVA matrix. The films are not verse of NEC 1970NX, because S-IPS so no high-contrast black and perfect, and MVA / PVA. On the other hand, very dense matrix does not allow the lights to illuminate to show irregularities and bright areas as in most PVA / MVA monitors and all the TN + Film. Working with text is very pleasant, soft, rich full-color picture is not tired eyes. Graphic and color applications are verse of NEC 1970NX, it is preferred monitor for graphic design, photo-editing, Printing and publishing software. Monitor matrix is very fast and is suitable for almost all games. (more…)

HP Pavilion dv9000

HP Pavilion dv9000We will not cover the design of machines and the three tested laptop are exactly the same as design, quality display and peripheral components. Will only recall that the design of the Pavilion series not remain indifferent to anyone and my opinion is much more stylish new dv4, dv5, dv7, which are an overview of our site. HP Pavilion series is very criticized in the Internet space, and it mostly AMD variant of the dv9000, dv6000. The reason for this criticism is the diligence of HP to be an environmental company and change termo-paste leaded solders and such, which do not harm the environment – that lead to lower efficiency please contact surfaces and overheating. On the other hand are not well placed vents of machinery is a prerequisite for overheating and possible damage. Most of the blame for failures and brings pampered buyer who buys a 17-inch laptop mainly to use it in bed, but this is not work for such a machine. Laptop, which stopped him access to fresh air fans immediately began to overheat. It is known that AMD never made effective protection from overheating of the CPU, something that exists in INTEL years. Starting from these premises, other weak place of these models is to disbonding videochip and it mainly GeForce 8400/8600 series. Problems of most of these series of NVidia not only laptops to HP, DELL for example, has lawsuits against NVidia. Special NVidia 8400 is the most common of all video producers, because there are a lot cheaper DX10, HDMI, and hardware acceleration for HDTV. Very similar is the core of the GF8600, but the bus has 128-bit video card and demontrira much better performance. There are GS and GT versions of the GF8600. Unfortunately for us is weaker 8600 GS version. (more…)

The best gamers’ laptop

Gamers LaptopMy aim was to compare the most powerful video from the system and processor laptop with a desktop machine, assembled with organic budget. Many took time to find a suitable gaming laptop. Our previous favorite – HDX9000 “Dragon” is too weak to compare with the video card on an average modern configuration. We stopped on DELL XPS M1730 with an incredible two NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX video cards in SLI! Real madness for a laptop. CPU is Core2Duo T7700, 2.4GHz, 4MB – a solid performance. Sorry we could not find a DELL XPS with the most powerful processor Q9700. Before you see that window do not believe that the laptop coexist two 256-bit video cards in SLI mode: To be fed this huge laptop, DELL have provided enormous Adapter (for unexplained reasons, which is similar to that for HP Pavilion HDX9000). Heat separated from the worker is scary M1730 – desktop had the feeling that every moment will be dissolved. (more…)

Netbook or small laptop?

Netbook Small LaptopHighly dependent on the benevolence of INTEL, websites reviews tactfully silent about actual performance of Intel Atom processors and the performance of Atom + i945 platforms compared with other single-core solutions to Intel. Objective of our test is to show the real performance of the Intel Atom, compared with the older and would slower Pentium M (Centrino processor). Test machines are: – DELL Inspiron Mini 9 (9-inch netbook with Intel Atom 1600MHz Hyper Threading); – IBM ThinkPad X40 (12-inch mini-laptop with LV Pentium M 1400Mhz (Dothan 2MB) processor); – IBM Thinkpad X31 (12-inch mini-laptop with a Pentium M 1400Mhz (Banias 1MB) processor); – Toshiba Portege R100 (one of the most thin and elegant 12-inch mini-notebooks with ULV Pentium M (Banias 1MB) processor). Laptops are tested with the OS – Windows XP Professional SP3. Before proceeding to the test results and analysis will make a brief overview of mobile machines. DELL Inspiron Mini9 – unlike the prototype of the Netbook from Asus, DELL mobile device is very beautiful, elegant, with an excellent display with high resolution (1024 * 600), which does not need to constantly scroll pages and images. The keyboard is quite comfortable, but obviously not up space for functional butoni.Bateriyata is quite durable (over 3 hours), which is normally a super-economical ATOM. Model has a camera that is binding attribute of the modern laptop / netbook. Mini-machine no hard disk and Solid State “HDD”, which has both advantages and disadvantages. Main drawback is the small size memory. (more…)

HP Pavilion DellSubjected to a test three similar in size and specifications, high-tech notebooks designed for business and residential customers. The purpose of the review is to assess the real pros and cons of these great multimedia notebooks, so let’s turn our attention first to the hardware capabilities. For the Dell XPS series can be spoken much, but today will focus on the hybrid model DELL Studio XPS 1640, which will compare with Dell Studio 1737 and HP Pavilion DV9000.

Dell HP LaptopsThe laptop has become an integral part of our lives, and more people appreciate the compactness and autonomy. Niche maximum compact notebooks was somewhat successfully completed by netbooks. Partly because Intel atom is nice and economical processor, but is far from the performance of any laptop with a Pentium M processor – this is seen by many of our previous tests. Pentium M (Centrino) laptop, although the ratio unbeatable performance / economy remains in the past of computer technology. Market demand high performance, compact, economical and most autonomous laptops. Such laptops are positioned in the image class and are significantly more expensive than models with normal size and standard processors. The most prominent representatives of this class of mini-expensive laptops are Sony VAIO TZ, Toshiba Portege R500, Lenovo Thinkpad X300. These are powerful laptops with ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) Dual Core processors, weighing about 1kg., 12-inch matrix exclusive design. In this review we chose to test mini-laptops with more modest prices, but the uncompromising quality of DELL and HP Compaq.

FUJITSU Lifebook T4020D

FUJITSU Lifebook T4020DMany of us, including me identify the Fujitsu Siemens laptop as a cheap mid-range level of Asus, Acer or Toshiba’s lower classes and DELL. We have memories of high business-class Fujitsu Siemens, called the Lifebook. This class exists today due to the quality and functionality, but overall retreat in popularity of the products of HP, DELL, Toshiba, Lenovo. Tablet laptop, who visit us in the test laboratory surprised us – we did not expect a laptop produced by Fujitsu (without a hint of Siemens) and that of elite Lifebook series. Inscription “Made in Japan” on the reverse side of the laptop and surprise us to expect much. Everything made in Japan but not in Chinese factories affiliated with exceptional quality, reliability and technical features. Examples are the monitors EIZO (produced only in Japan) and Japan’s Canon PowerShot S3, which makes your photos and videos in this article. The full name of the model is the Fujitsu Lifebook T4020D. I will not trouble you with long descriptions and praise of the Japanese tablet. Will only mention the most remarkable features of the model. Firstly, the value of the matrix of the laptop in made AFFS technology. Advanced Fringe Field Switching (AFFS) is the unofficial name of the S-IPS Pro. Technology is a further development of IPS and is developed by the company BOE-Hydis in 2003. In view of non-payment of expensive licensing fees for a name in the name of the ingredient IPS technology is absent. The increased power of the electric field makes it possible to achieve even better viewing angles, better brightness and eliminates the main disadvantage of IPS – mezhdupikselno great distance. AFFS is mainly used in magneto-contact tablets (which are yavava and T4020D) and benefit from Hitachi Displays. (more…)

NEC 2070NX – high quality 20″ LCD S-IPS monitor

NEC 2070NXAfter the magnificent HP 2035 (online survey) drew our attention to another 20-inch S-IPS monitor. This is NEC 2070NX – Japanese model from 2008. This is another model of NEC, which proves that Japanese companies are № 1 producer of monitors. EIZO and NEC for many years among the top producers of super-monitors for professional applications. On the other hand EIZO and NEC benefit Korean TFT panels – P-PVA, S-PVA, PVA (a Samsung) and S-IPS (of LG Philips). In fact, * VA technology was developed by a Japanese company – Fujitsu, IPS panel is a joint product of other Japanese – Hitachi and NEC. In our previous article we describe in detail the extent to which S-IPS is distinguished by mass TN + Film monitors. Summary can mention: – S-IPS have a much more realistic picture – 8-bit color against a 6-bit TN + Film; – Much less damage to eyesight – Standard TN monitor tired eyes for 2-3 hours of S-IPS can work 10-12 hours without apparent fatigue; – S-IPS has a much more real color reproduction, so it is used for design and prepress; – Visual angles of S-IPS are incomparably better than TN-Film, and therefore the best LCD televisions with S-IPS panel.

IBM Thinkpad T43IBM Thinkpad T43 laptop the last produced by IBM. Although the logo is legendary Thinkpad laptops live in the Chinese company Lenovo, quality and innovation are not at that level compared to competitors, as in the years before the 2005th. In fact Lenovo are a good manufacturer of laptops, albeit supported by powerful research development center of IBM. Printed materials for thousands of quality Thinkpad, many videos of extreme ruggedness and reliability of T-series can be found on the Internet.
