Comparison: Seven 21" and 22" CRT Monitors

Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2060u, Continued

But the most surprising thing is that all the adjustment options can be accessed via the software in Windows, as with some of the Eizo monitors. So if you plug the RGB cable into input B (DDC/CI-compatible) and install the Naviset program, a new "Monitor adjustment" tab pops up in the advanced display properties.

This module contains all the screen settings and corresponding color charts to help the user. It makes the Diamond Pro 2060u very easy to configure, especially since you hardly need to do anything to obtain a perfect image. The only shame is that both inputs are not DDC/CI-compatible to make it even easier to use two PCs on the one monitor.

While the working diagonal is no greater than on a 21", the effect on display quality is enormous. This has nothing to do with the DiamondTron NF tube because the screen is absolutely flat. Default geometry is excellent in most of the standard resolutions, and especially in 1600 x 1200. Sharpness is also excellent, and moreover, it is sharp throughout the entire screen, so evenness is good.

Color rendering is more than adequate, though we do advise raising the settings to give a bit more punch to the images. No problem with convergence, any more than with brightness and contrast, which are as fine for office work as for games and DVD.

On the downside, we could just say that in default conditions the moiré is rather high and cannot be entirely eliminated by adjustment. To sum up, the Diamond Pro 2060u is an excellent monitor that we cannot recommend highly enough.
