Not long ago we tested the L1740P from the same manufacturer. We were won over by its exemplary design and finish, despite a panel whose performance was little short of the mark. So we were curious to see what the 19" version of this exceptional monitor would be like.

We'd already said it when we tested the 1740P: Sony no longer has a monopoly on snazzy LCD monitor design. The lines of this unit are to die for. The matte-black and gloss-white plastics are extremely attractive. The adjustment buttons have been move to the edge of the monitor so as not to interfere with its lines. The power-on pilot is a thin blue band set between the chrome edge running along the lower edge of the panel and the touch-sensitive on/off buttons. The rear cover hides the connectors and is just as nicely designed. This is an extremely handsome monitor.
The monitor has only a tilt adjustment, fortunately with a good range. The user interface of the new LG monitors was naturally used on the L1940P.
When choosing a result program (movie, office, etc.), the screen splits in two and shows you your original adjustment on the right and the new adjustment on the left. It's a very practical system, and novel enough to deserve praise.
