The box itself includes the main LCD screen, a small
stand, power cord, manual and driver disk. Putting together
the screen and stand was a snap, literally. Just take the
screen and place it on the stand, just like piecing together two
The back of the screen is where the 3
prong power cord plugs into. The screen itself swivels from -5
to 45 Degrees up and down. I had hoped they would allow left and
right movement, but since it is light just pushing the whole unit left
and right is ok.
The screen is totally flat! On some
of the regular CRT monitors (Sony G400), they do claim that their
screen is virtually flat. This really means its flat mostly in
the center area, while a lit curvature is seen at the edges.
With this LCD screen, it is really totally flat. No spaces seen
when putting a straight edge ruler to the test.
This model utilizes a regular 15 pin
D-sub male signal connector. This is the most common type, so
nearly all consumer video cards should be able to support the EN-5100.
The front of the unit contains 5 buttons,
an auto, brightness, contrast, menu and power. The power light
will turn green when on, orange when off or in stand by mode.
To be totally honest, I did not even
bother touching the menu and changing any kind of settings. When
you first turn on the monitor and your system, the unit goes into a
Auto Config mode. It configures your Clock (pixel frequency) and
Focus automatically. Clock basically controls the number of
pixels scanned by one horizontal sweep. If this frequency is not
correct, vertical stripes appear and the width of the screen will be
off. The Focus is the horizontal direction with the same idea as
the Clock. The auto config also resizes your screen with your
video input signal and adjusts the screen perfectly for you.
If you still want to mess with the
settings, you can always hit the menu button. It allows you the
basic options just like any monitor. Horizontal and Vertical
position and size are all there for your tweaking pleasure.
The monitor is plug and play, we're using
it on our test rig and it picked up the monitor perfectly in Windows
98. The included monitor INF file installed very fast, no
