17" LCD Part V: Four Panels Compared

GTA: Vice City

No problem. You can carry on committing your crimes in peace, there won't be any wake or trail to stop you.

Command & Conquer: Generals

Here again, the text "-xres 1280 -yres 1024" really needs to be added as a shortcut to the game to be able to play it in the resident screen resolution. Otherwise, you will be restricted to 1152 x 864, a resolution that is playable but rather jerky. Pushing beyond that, to 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600, is even worse and frankly ill advised. But as soon as you get back to 1280 x 1024, the images are good, colorful, and bright, and the outlines and features clearly defined. In short, game playing is brilliant. The wake is only visible when you move over the screen quickly to reach units on the other side of the map. In any case, this kind of movement is no sharper on a CRT screen.


What a pity. Like all the monitors that use the HyDis, the ProphetView 920 Pro provides a brightly colored image, and the wake is very slight, and even invisible in many movies, but the screen suffers from having angles of vision that are too restricted. The vertical angle de vision, especially in the horizontal, is very disappointing. The PV 920 Pro is adequate for display a DivX for someone alone in their room, but under no circumstances could it be used as the main TV set on which you could watch your favorite movies with the family.
