Do The New 19" LCDs Pass Muster?

Fall is here again; after three months in your hammock, you've headed back to school, to college, or to the office. This is a good time as any to consider replacing or upgrading your computer setup, and why not start with your monitor? Currently, 19 inches is king as far as screen size goes. That's the size the developers of LCD panels are concentrating on, and it's naturally the one that's getting the benefit of the latest innovations. Overdrive technology, for example, is still not common on 17 " monitors, whereas it's becoming the rule with 19 " ones. Here's our exhaustive test of nine LCD panels in that size.

The 190B6 is the first 19" monitor from Philips that uses an 8 ms panel. We were curious to test this unit, if only to see if Overdrive technology had been used.
