Comparison: Seven 21" and 22" CRT Monitors

Cornerstone C1035, Continued

So the c1035 is a humble monitor, as you can see from its characteristics. The actual diagonal of the screen is only 19.7 inches, so the total image you can see is somewhat smaller than the average of the other 21" monitors. It's even smaller when you consider that it is better not to use the entire surface of the screen, because this prevents image distortion at the curve of the tube. If you stretch it to the full, deformation around the edge will be quite substantial.

The c1035 has a unipitch of 0.21mm and a maximum horizontal refresh rate of 107 kHz, which gave it 85.65 Hz in 1600 x 1200 in the tests. As it is designed for an office environment, don't expect a USB hub, but it does have five BNC inputs to go with the 15-pin RGB input.

Its OSD is so-so, but extensive enough for a monitor in this price range. It has the basic geometry options, horizontal and vertical moiré adjustment, linearity, purity and horizontal and vertical convergence.
