The 17-inch screen monitor ADI MicroScan G710 has an absolute flat screen and is intended for the professionals. Bright, the saturated colors in a combination to an absolute flat screen reproduce an image enough precisely and realistically. It uses an electron-beam tube FD Trinitron. The maximum size of an image at MicroScan G710 makes 406,4 mm on a diagonal. The screen monitor MicroScan G710 has horizontal frequency 30-96 kHz and vertical - 50-160 Hz. The maximum resolution - 1600õ1200 with frequency of 75 Hz. Even for such resolution the display ensures a unflickering image. In ADI MicroScan G710 is used tube with an aperture lattice and pitch between orifices 0,24 mm. Set-up of parameters of an image, as well as in majority of modern screen monitors, is carried out with the help of screen menu, in which apart from of standard sets of sizes, position and indemnification of geometric distortions are present also choice of color temperature (four set-ups), turn on/off power saving mode and choice one from five languages of the screen menu. The monitor completely corresponds to the strictest standard TCO'99 and satisfies with all ergonomics and ecological requests, and also norms on electromagnetic radiation and current consumption. With the help of unusual and rather strange, but the convenient menu EasyScreen the user suffices can select adjustable parameters (language of the interface, demagnetization, set-up of color, convergence, trapezoidal distortions, a scan frequency etc.) and to set up the monitor in the correspondence with the needs. Dignities Majority of technologies used today in the series G710, still recently were applied only in expensive graphic screen monitors. Built-in microphone and the delivered in addition "fastened" stereo columns convert MicroScan G710 into the perfect screen monitor for multimedia applications. As an option the concentrator USB, ensuring an extended
possibility for the users is offered. Defects The not so convenient and unusual menu of tunings. A big moire and some not eliminated geometric distortions on edges of picture. And looks not too solidly for the professional screen monitor.
Most monitors now use a push button onscreen display to adjust settings. They’re more accurate but less easy to use than old-fashioned dials, so I was happy to see that the ADI MicroScan G710 manages to use both systems. There’s an excellent menu system featuring advanced controls such as convergence, and horizontal and vertical moire. And beneath the front face lurk a couple of brightness and contrast rotary controls. Having said that, I didn’t actually need to use many of the adjustment possibilities the G710 makes available. The FD Trinitron Pure Flat tube produces sharp, clear and distortion-free images, and high refresh rates help a lot too. My preferred mode of 1,152 x 864 is displayed at 99Hz, while even the highest resolution of 1,600 x 1,200 is supported at flicker-free 75Hz. Colours aren’t so great, though, feeling a little washed out compared to the competition, regardless of any adjustment. An unusual extra is the built-in microphone, and you can purchase optional clip-on speakers or a USB hub at a later date for just a few pounds. Which would be fine, except I think they should be thrown in. This is a good monitor, but just a little too expensive to compete with the best of the rest.
This is a great monitor and it provides me with the sufficient quality i need for light graphic design and general internet / e-mail use at home - but there is one tiny problem. I have the resoloution cranked right up to 1600 x 1200 for my graphic design and I appear to have two parralel lines (very feint) one third and then two thirds the way down the screen. They are not there at any other resoloution and it may be a problem with my video card however my G910 (at work) suffers the same problem. Keep it in mind when your buying this monitor - other thatn the barely noticable lines its a really great piece of kit thats well worth the money.
