As we have stated already, the particular model we are looking at is the DVI version which helps bring a digital image to the screen which results in a much clearer and pleasant image due to less signal noise. Some people are going to find themselves not spending the extra money for the DVI model as its costs a little bit more and would simply prefer to go for the normal VGA model.
On the other side, others will go with the DVI version because it does look better or simply because it's more "future proof" - and in all honesty, digital is the way to go these days.
One feature we loved about the Hercules LCD which we looked at a while ago, that we don't see on a lot of LCDs, is the inclusion of an RCA port. This helps give the user more options to not only use the LCD as a computer monitor but also as a TV. The particular monitor from BroMagic takes the experience even further with RCA inputs for sound, so you could utilize the two small speakers on the monitor as well as an S-Video connector which wasn't on the Hercules LCD.
Like a lot of the top model Samsung monitors, the LCD also has separate analogue and digital inputs. This means if you wanted to, you could have two computers and run one via DVI and the other via normal VGA and easily switch between them. Plug in your pay TV box or game console and you have a full multi purpose LCD monitor which has a load of uses. Navigating between inputs is made a lot easier thanks to only having to push the button labeled auto - splendid!
- Build Quality
You can tell the difference between a cheaper LCD and a more expensive unit by the feel of it. This particular LCD doesn't feel as nice as the Hercules we looked at not to long ago.
Looking at the BroMagic LCD, you notice that the borders aren't too bad, while they aren't as thin as the ones seen on the 191T from Samsung, they are slightly thinner then the ones found on the Hercules ProphetView 920. Moving to the bottom of the LCD, you see the buttons which do exactly what they are suppose to do. The On Screen Display (OSD) is quite easy to use and should only take a moment to figure out; you will soon find yourself jumping around the menu to find the optimum settings for yourself, just like I did.
Moving right down to the very bottom you notice the big black plastic stand. The stand is very strong and not only gives you the ability to tilt the monitor up and down but to also twist it from side to side. Movement is very easy and the stand feels very sturdy.
The overall build quality is very good for the price but it has that cheaper plastic feel that would be naturally expected from a monitor in this price range.
