Hercules Prophetview 920 17" LCD Monitor Review - Conclusion

The thought of buying an LCD monitor in the past for many probably would have been a dream due to previous year's high asking price. However, recently LCD's have dropped in price as they become more popular and should become more financially viable. Today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a look at the Hercules Prophetview 920 17" LCD monitor and runs it through its paces. With RCA port and sex appeal, it certainly stands out from the rest!

Conclusion

 

LCD's have come a long way in the past 18 months; it wasn't that long ago the idea of an LCD for a monitor was ridiculous due to their high price tag. Thanks to the mass production of them, these days, prices have really dropped and they are now a lot more affordable for the average person. The Hercules Prophetview 920 DVI is a big improvement over its predecessor, the Prophetview 720, yet it still could do with a few more improvements - mainly an increase in contrast ratio, this will help get rid of some of the darkness we sometimes find in movies and games.

 

If you're in the market for an LCD, we would highly recommend that you don't skimp on the purchase of one; cheaper LCD's are usually only good for desktop use as their specs are usually quite low.

 

As we stated this particular model comes in two flavors: a DVI version priced at around $650 US (around $1,000 AU) and a non-DVI version priced at a more affordable $530 US (around $800 AU). If you look around you should be able to bargain a few dollars off the price but if you have been fortunate enough to own Hercules equipment in the past, you know the kind of quality used throughout their products and you know you will get what you pay for.

 

Overall we have a very nice LCD which flaws are only very small and we find no reason not to give it our editor's choice award!
