Finding the Best 19" LCD Monitor for Your Application

AG Neovo X19AV

AG Neovo has established its reputation in the U.S. as an LCD vendor that offers good-quality monitors that aren't necessarily very expensive. We tested the X19, a 19" unit that's attractive because of the many options it offers: Dual VGA/DVI connectivity, but also Video-in and S-VHS. Everything points to this being a monitor worth considering, including its finish.

Design: A Bulletproof Monitor

The X19AV is a surprising monitor. The first surprise is its weight - close to 17.6 lbs. (8 kg)! That's understandable, since the shell is made of a metal alloy, the base is steel, and there's a 3mm-thick glass panel. AG Neovo is clearly aiming this monitor at a professional market, and you can easily imagine the X19AV in professional environments requiring appropriate design and build quality. The X19AV is solidly built and professional-looking - it may be the sturdiest monitor we've seen up to now. The tempered glass panel is impressively hard. The control buttons are the industrial, waterproof kind. This is a monitor that's built to take punishment.


The monitor's ergonomics are just as professional. The buttons are big and easy to find. The panel has a tilt adjustment, but the range is limited to +/- 15 degrees. On the other hand it's VESA compatible.
