Computer Testing

When testing with my computer, I used the HD debranded monitor alongside an Acer 24" in a dual monitor configuration. The first set of photos shows the screen in portrait mode on several different websites as well as what you could do with AIM.

Most people don't realize that widescreen monitors, when used for net surfing, have a lot of wasted space on either side of the screen. If you plan to do mostly web surfing, you might want to consider running in portrait mode. To enable portrait mode, all you need to do is go into your graphics card options and rotate the display. Most modern day videos card should support this.

There were a few issues I found in portrait mode, however. The left-side viewing angle (which would normally be the bottom in landscape mode) was pretty bad. Even looking at it from a slight angle produced a bad picture. But, head on, it looked real nice. My other complaint is that you can't tilt the monitor enough to make it sit perfectly vertical. The best you can achieve is a slight angle. This didn't affect performance but was kind of annoying.

Here we have some wallpapers, some from InterfaceLift.com and some that I shot myself in HDR. As you can see, the colors look really nice, especially in the HDR pics.

Finally I took some time to play some games. I am not a huge gamer but I do enjoy a good round of Unreal Tournament III and Crysis. Below are some photos so you can see how the games look on the screen at 1920 x 1200.

Move ahead as we wrap things up with a conclusion.
