The PR960F by CTX is based on an FD Trinitron tube. The 18" display surface has an ARAG coating to reduce reflection and glare. The flat screen has a constant pitch of 0.24 mm. Its square and rather functional appearance makes it look fairly professional. As for its electronics, it has a bandwidth of 232 MHz and a refresh rate of 110 kHz. CTX claims a maximum resolution of 1800x1440 at 72 Hz. In practice, it is actually a bit more, because we reached 1920x1440 at 74 Hz, which is not bad. The PR960F not only has a 15-pin VGA plug but BNC (RGBHV) inputs as well. It also has a 2-port USB hub. Final point, the PR960F holds the record for weight in this test at no less than 31 kg.
High-quality standard geometry is what you expect of a monitor in this class. In the standard 800x600 to 1600x1200 resolutions, no obvious deformation was detectible. The OSD is fairly conventional, with the essential geometry options, positioning and size. There are some more options for moiré and convergence. It's a pity there is no adjustment of purity by zone and especially of image regularity over the entire surface, which can sometimes be decisive for a perfect image. The general quality is more than good. The PR960F is highly readable and its display is precise. This is particularly noticeable in text displayed with a very small font. There is no special moiré effect, and brightness is the same as on most Trinitron monitors. Colors are well rendered, even though they don't reach the same level as the ViewSonic P95f.
