Dell W1900 LCD TV
- Excellent viewing angle, LCD TV and monitor
- Slow response time
A great space-saving addition to your lounge room, study or boardroom, the W1900 is performs well as an LCD TV and monitor.
Price$ 1,499.00 (AUD)
Doubling as an LCD monitor and television, Dell's W1900 LCD TV is a solid performer, although expensive.
The 19" widescreen (16:9) display has a native resolution of 1280 x 768 (WXGA). The integrated standard definition analog TV tuner is capable of displaying resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 interlaced (1080i). However, due to the native resolution, the 1080i HDTV is downscaled.
Its viewing angle is a fantastic 170 degrees from both axes. With brightness of 450cd/m2, it's at the upper end of the scale for LCD monitors (which are typically in the 200-250cd/m2 range) but a little lacking compared to many dedicated LCD TVs (which are often 500cd/m2+). It would be powerful enough to work well in most lighting conditions. While the featured contrast ratio of 600:1 is quite respectable, the W1900 is let down by a slow response time of 25ms.
When fired up, the W1900 has a variety of excellent display modes such as picture-in-picture, picture-on-picture, picture-beside-picture, video-on-video and video-on-PC. The TV tuner also supports closed captioning, parental control and teletext.
In addition to standard TV viewing, we tested the W1900 using both a DVI and VGA connection with a PC equipped with a 128MB ABIT X700 graphics card. We also tested it using the DisplayMate monitor diagnostic (www.displaymate.com), Unreal Tournament 2004, various scenes from The Matrix DVD and an Xbox.
The W1900 produced vibrant and crisp colours during the DisplayMate tests, although we noted slight banding in some colour and greyscale gradients that were not noticeable during general use. Loading up UT2004 and panning the surrounding buildings did not produce any trailing edges or ghosting, suggesting that the display would be adequate for gaming despite its slow response time. DVD playback was also spot on without graininess from any inputs and again we appreciated the excellent viewing angle.
For installation, the W1900 can either be wall mounted using VESA standard mounts or you can use the sturdy and height-adjustable stand that comes with it.
A range of connection ports are located at the rear and side of the display. All the rear ports are for input and include two RCA HTDV component ports in addition to single VGA, DVI (for PC connection), antenna/cable coaxial, 3.5" stereo and DVI-HDCP connections.
The ports located on the side include two RCA composite (input and out), composite S-Video in, 3.5" headphone jack and a RCA subwoofer output. The W1900 has two 7W integral speakers. The sleek black and silver remote control uses a blue backlight for navigation in a darkened room.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
