“ Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930SB - Display - CRT - 19" - 1920 x 1440 / 73 Hz - 0.24 mm - VGA - black „
The monitor is cheap and offers a large rebate for a reason: it is a piece of crap. Within 1 hour of purchasing the monitor it began going black for no apparent reason. Its not a compatibility problem because it turned on as soon as I plugged it in the first time. However, even if it were a compatibility problem it is extremely difficult to find the driver for this device--and when you do find it (the trick is that it is actually made by NEC), it is even more difficult to install. I would recommend passing it up for a higher quality monitor.
Technology today in my opinion is absolute sensational. It?s exciting to think what they will bring out on the market next. But something keeps on telling me that they are holding back on a great deal to make as much money as possible. Over the years we have seen the world of computers establish itself more and more with ideas for the future to blow us away. But I am impatient and think to myself why can't they invent things like they do in futuristic films. I know its silly but don't you think that would be remarkable. The market for computers has gone from strength to strength releasing some mind whopping technology as well some fancy monitors. * Mitsubishi Diamond pro 930 SB * So what is all the fuss about this particular monitor you may be asking? With its superior screen display and dynamic cabinet design, this monitor brings you to the forefront of technology. High performance and advanced technology collide for the ultimate visual experience. It is a CRT display and is 19 inches with an 18-inch viewable screen. In plain terms if you look at the inside of the screen it is 18 inches from side to side. It also weighs 52.5 lbs so be careful when lifting this monitor up. The Flat screen provides a high resolution, while reducing any glare, and the NaViSet software allows you to adjust screen settings using your mouse and keyboard. The Max resolution is 1920x1440 @ 73Hz and the good thing about this monitor is its available with Spectra View Color Calibration Solution for accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance. This is easy to manage and gives you a lot more options for better viewing. It is easy to install this monitor, as it is a plug and play device, which you will find most new monitors today are. To simplify that it just means that when you get this m
onitor and plug it in to you pc and connect it all up , windows then detects a new monitor and you follow the process to install the drivers. Then in the future if you take the monitor out of the pc then put it back on it will work straight away. You are given a three year warranty with this but it is a massive let down, let me tell you why. When you purchase something you always get some kind of warranty, which basically is where if the item you have purchased goes wrong in any way you can have it replaced considering it is still under warranty. It doesn?t usually say you have to package it up and send it off to get another one. But this is the problem faced with this particular monitor. So this can be a tad bit expensive if anything does go wrong. The Mitsubishi diamond has impressive and high specifications as well as a very attractive exterior full of charisma which is matched by its level of overall performance. This is one for the style-conscious. This monitor isn't just for the classy business people out there. It is also great for personal use at home and certainly something to brag about to your friends and family. Its sleek, its sassy and to notch it up it?s cutting edge. *Design: Looking good! * This conventional looking monitor sports a chunky exterior if your looking from the side but from the front it is a flat screen making everything appear in your face. You have a choice of standard analogue D-Sub VGA or digital-only DVI-D, and there's a button on the bezel for toggling between them if you are using the monitor with two input devices. * Features * You can easily control and manage the monitors features by the easy accessible buttons at the front. Unlike a lot of monitors where big chunky buttons can make it look messy and untidy this is the complete opposite. The buttons
are a reasonable size but blend well giving it a very nice contrast. Here is a quick run down of the buttons going from left to right: - Exit ? Self-explanatory Left arrow - navigation Right arrow - navigation Minus - screen settings Plus - screen settings A select button - toggles super bright mode on/off Reset ? self-explanatory With one simple touch of the buttons, you are presented with an on screen display (OSD). This is a small, white dialogue box, which you can easily exit at any time. * Image quality * I found the image quality to be very bright, with the colours both being vibrant and even. I also noticed that the width of the screen was being pushed against the range of horizontal viewing angles slightly, so that unless the monitor is viewed from exactly dead centre, the edge furthest away was fractionally darker. This isn't a big disaster and isn't easily recognisable unless you stare at it trying to find it. * Important note * You should always check the box when you purchase a new monitor to make sure you have everything you are supposed to have.You should make sure you have all of the following :- The Monitor Power cord Captive Signal Cable User Manual on a CD Rom (16 pages and in adobe format) If you don?t have all of this in the box get on to where you purchased it from and make sure you get it. These are all essentials to make the monitor work apart from the manual but if you don?t know how to work the monitor then it is an essential in a way. * Price * I had a look on the Internet to compare prices and there was a wide range of prices with the most expensive being £301 but if you shop around especially in the sales you could get it cheaper. I have seen it for
£260 in a computer magazine so if you are considering on purchasing one of these use different sources to find the best price. Don?t let the price tag put you off though because it is definitely worth every penny. I really like this monitor. After seeing it for the first time I fell in love with it. I hope to buy one soon so im saving up for it at the moment.The reason why I like this monitor so much is because of the look and feel of it.When you turn it on, the screen is bulging out and its in your face. On older monitors or cheaper versions, the screen looks plain and boring with no real pizzazz about it what so ever. I think the graphics are nothing short of remarkable.The good thing is that you can change it to how you want it.Also the case is mouth watering and words just cant describe the feel of it. * ratings * Image quality & performance 7.5 Features 8 Design 7.5 Service & support 7 Well there you have it. A nice piece of technology for a reasonable price. It?s not the best on the market out there at the moment but this is definitely one to consider.It has all the essentials and more giving you the ultimate experience for watching movies, surfing the internet to just typing up documents. So this is for absolute every body. You wont be disappointed I can guarantee that! Thanks for reading Stevo!!
Here's a review that I am surprising myself with...A computer one :-) I must stress though that this is about my dads monitor not mine.I have used dads monitor for long enough though so trust me,I know all about it :) This is my first monitor opinion as I really don’t have much of a clue when it comes to computer things. However as this was such a nice, stylish monitor I felt I had to share it with others and so I researched a little about it. Now the first thing I mentioned there that I should mention is that it is stylish. From the front it looks like a flat screen Monitor but that is deceiving because when you peer around the side you can see it goes back around 25 inches. That’s quite far back so remember that if you want to buy one just to check that you have the space available for it. It isn’t that chunky though as the front section is wider than the back as with all monitors. So first things first I should tell you a little about the monitor itself. *The Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930SB* This monitor is obviously made by Mitsubishi and it really performs to a high standard. It has a 19 inch screen and it is a CRT/ display device. Its exact measurements are 44.2cm x 44.8cm x 44.3cm. Its diagonal size is 19” but its viewable size is 18”. It has a dot pitch of 0.24mm and its maximum resolution is 1920 x 1440 / 73 Hz. It does have an option of using a resolution from 640x480 to 1920x1440. It is a plug and play device which basically means if you plug it into the PC, as long as the drivers are installed, it will work. If it is the first time you are using it, it should automatically come up with an installation screen. The rest of the compliant standards if you need to know them are: It is FCC Cl
ass B certified, CE, TUV GS, ISO 9241-3, ISO 9241-8, VCCI Class B ITE, ISO 9241-7, cUL, DHHS, DOC-B, EN 60950, EN 61000-3-2, EN55022, EPA Energy Star, MPR III, PTB, TCO ‘95, UL 1950. Now to me that doesn’t really make sense but I know there will be some people on here wanting to know that. Basically it is just a great monitor with a lot of great features. It is compatible with both an IBM PC and a Mac computer. ***Aimee’s description of the product*** I thought I’d add a touch of my own experience of the product here because after all that is what this opinion is for…experience of it. I really do love this monitor because with it being a flat screen it seems to be more in your face than the monitors that come out a little bit. I don’t know if you have noticed that yourself but when you are sitting at your computer, with a monitor that comes out a little, things seem quite far away like word documents for example, whereas with a flat screen, even if you are sitting quite far away from the screen you are still able to see everything clearly, especially word documents. This makes it easier to see what you are doing and you aren’t straining your eyes as much trying to see things better. From the different monitors I have seen, this seems to be the best one for graphics and the clearness of the picture. I feel it is quite a stylish looking monitor as I said earlier but I still feel it would benefit personal use just as well as business use. Its buttons don’t stick out and they are almost invisible to the naked eye unless you actually get up close. They are eas
ily accessible and work at just the slightest touch of the finger. I’ll explain more about the buttons and what they do in a moment. The thing I like most about the monitor is the look of it. It has a silvery front with a really clear screen and a black exterior. So now you know a little about the monitor but how do you install it? And what do you get with it? Well read on and you’ll find out! ***Thing’s included and how to work it*** When you purchase your monitor you should receive… 1)The Monitor 2)Power cord 3)Captive Signal Cable 4)User Manual on a CD Rom In order to be able to access the User Manual you need to have the latest version of Adobe Reader. You can easily get the latest version of Adobe free on the internet or it sometimes comes with a game if you purchase one. The manual is 16 Adobe pages long and I found it really helpful. It has diagrams showing you where everything is and it labels everything clearly too. The only downside with this is of course to view the manual you need a monitor already installed so I’d recommend if you don’t know what you are doing then this isn’t the one for you. However I should stress that it is really easy and all you basically need to do is plug the cables into the back of the monitor/computer. To install the Monitor on a normal PC all you need to do is place the 15-pin mini D-SUB captive signal cable in the back of the PC where it will fit. Basically all that means is place the cable with 15 pins (the things in the gap of the end of the cable), in the back of the PC wherever it will fit, which will be different in each PC. Next you place the power cable in the back of the monitor and plug the monito
r into the mains. The power cable is the only remaining cable and it has a plug on the end of it. For a Mac computer you need to place it in the back using a Mac adapter which you do not get included with the monitor. This means you should keep it in mind that if you buy this monitor for a Mac computer you will need to fork out extra for the adapter. You then put the power cable into the back of the monitor and then plug it into the mains. Make sure that you press the power button at the front of the monitor to make sure it turns on. When it isn’t turned on the light is orange and when it is turned on it is green so that should help you know when the monitor is turned on or off. I have known quite a few people to think that their monitor is broken when they have quite simply forgotten to turn the button on at the front. So now you know that let’s talk more about the monitor’s functions. ***The Monitor’s features*** The monitor’s features are controlled by its buttons on the front. Now as I mentioned earlier, the buttons don’t spoil the look of the monitor like some other monitors do and they are easily accessible. Now on all monitors, when you press the buttons you are presented with an on screen display (OSD). This is a tiny, white dialogue box which you can easily exit at any time using the exit button. The thing I like about the exit button is it actually says exit on it. I’ve seen ones that say press the exit button and you haven’t a clue what the exit button is and before you know it you’ve changed all your settings without meaning to. So starting from the left hand side going to the right hand side you should find the following buttons: 1)The exit button 2)An arrow pointing left which navigates within the OS
68; menu. 3)An arrow pointing right which again navigates within the OSD menu 4)A minus sign which alters the screen settings within the OSD menu 5)A plus sign which alters the screen settings within the OSD menu 6)A select button… this enters a sub mode in OSD mode and out of OSD mode it switches super bright mode on/off 7)The last but not least button is the reset button. A little bit more about a few of the buttons: The select button – When you are using the super bright mode there are some important things to consider. You simply press select once while not in the OSD mode. This will then come up with a window that appears for 3 seconds telling you what the current Super Bright (SB) settings are. If you then press select again you will be switching to the next SB mode. When your computer is turned off the monitor will reset the SB mode to off. Just so you know, Super Bright mode-1 is used usually for images, Super Bright mode-2 is mainly used for moving images such as DVD movies and for plain text based images (normal mode) the Super Bright mode should be switched off. When you turn your monitor on it is automatically switched off so you will need to follow the above instructions to change it. The rest button – This resets all controls within the highlighted menu back to the factory settings. If you accidentally press the reset button don’t panic because when it is pressed in both the main menu and the sub menu OSD it will come up with a warning message which will allow you to cancel it. So what do the buttons control? ***Monitor Controls*** The monitor buttons control quite a few settings. These include: *Brightness/Contrast Controls *Size and position controls *Colour control system *Geometry controls *Tools 1 *Tools 2 *Information Some of these controls will be obvious to you but some handy information about them is: Brightness/Contrast controls – In this menu you can change the background screen brightness, the image brightness in relation to the background, and you can demagnetise the screen. If you do choose to demagnetise your screen you should remember to leave around 20 minutes between each attempt at it. Size and Position controls – From here you can move the image on the screen up and down, left and right, and you can increase/decrease the size of the image and the width of it too. Colour Control System – The settings that are already set on the monitor are named Kelvin. If you change the settings in this menu the name will change from Kelvin to Custom except sRGB mode. There are two modes within this menu. One is the Red, Green and Blue mode and the other is sRGB mode. The Red, Green and Blue mode is where the monitor’s red, green and blue colour guns can be decreased or increased depending on whichever one is selected. The sRGB mode provides a suitable colour managed picture image. From here you cannot change the red, green or blue colours, brightness and contrast individually. You can also change the colour temperature of the screen image on this menu. Geometry controls – This lets you alter the size of the angle of your display. You can make the sides go outwards or inwards, you can tilt the sides left and right, you can rotate the display clockwise or counter clockwise. Tools 1 – from what I can see
73; don’t understand what it is talking about but there doesn’t really seem to be much point to the options in this menu so I will skip this section. Tools 2 – From this menu you can change your OSD settings. This for example could be how long the OSD menu stays on the screen without you pressing anything. You can change it from 5 seconds to 120. This will help if you need to focus on something for a while before selecting an option. You can also choose where you would like the OSD menu to appear. With this you can either have it appear in the middle of the screen, in the top left of the screen, the top right of the screen, the bottom left of the screen or the bottom right of the screen. Information – This menu gives you information on the current mode and frequency setting of the monitor and the model and serial numbers of the monitor. ***Some helpful safety and points to consider*** 1)Don’t open the monitor. If you do you could be exposing yourself to dangerous shock hazards. There aren’t any user serviceable parts so there is no need to open the monitor at all. 2)Don’t spill any liquids on the monitor or near it. 3)Don’t place any heavy objects on top of the power cord. If the cord becomes damaged it could cause a fire or a shock. 4)If you change the direction of the monitor while it is turned on it could cause some image discolouration. If this occurs you should turn the monitor off for around 20 minutes before putting it back on. 5)There is a special coating provided on the glass (a CRT surface), which reduces a reflection and static electricity on the glass surface. This means that to clean it properly you should use a lint free, non abrasive cloth. You should clean your monitor regularly. Something I h
aven’t mentioned is that it comes with a 3 year warranty. My dad got his from Manchester and he ordered it over the internet. If he needs any repairs doing for it he will have to send it to Manchester to be repaired which means if you are thinking of ordering this from over the internet you should take into consideration how much it will cost you in postage and packaging to send it to be repaired if anything ever happens to it. That is one of the only downsides for it. ***How much does it cost and availability*** Dad paid £260 for this one but you can get it cheaper if you shop around. As with everything, prices vary wherever you shop. You should be able to find it in most computer shops and I think dad only ordered his from Manchester because it was advertised with his new computer he wanted. I would personally try places like Computer World or PC World. You may also like to try Curry’s or Comet. ***My overall opinion*** In case you hadn’t guessed I love this monitor and I’ve told Stephen (my fiance) we are getting one. It makes using the computer a really pleasant experience and for the competitive people out there you should find that it is a monitor you can show off to your mates. It does look a lot better than the picture above and you can get it in either black or grey. I personally prefer the black myself but it’s all a matter of preference. Whatever you like your monitor to do this one definitely does it. So what are you waiting for? For a reliable, excellent monitor get down to your local computer store and enquire about one of these now! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed! Aimee xxx
