>> Hi, this is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today we're looking at the Westinghouse L1916HW. Now you may be wondering why the display is turned off. Well, the reason is 'cause almost every time I touch the side of the display, the display turns off. I hit the power button by mistake. As you can see, the onscreen display buttons aren't really buttons at all. You see the bottom right side of the panel is the OSD. Don't even think about trying to calibrate this thing in a dark room though with no tactile buttons, you're probably just asking for headaches. Aesthetically, the first thing that jumps out is that the display has a pretty unique looking design. There's this fiberglass plate under the bezel here that reflects the white LED illuminating the Westinghouse logo. The foot stand continues this fiberglass motif and for such a small and light monitor, the foot stand actually keeps it from wobbling too much when knocked around. The connection options include VGA and DVI. There's no HDMI here, but the display is compatible with HDCP. There's no pivoting, rotation or screen height adjustment here, but it does tilt back about 20 degrees. Although this monitor had decent performance in CNET Labs DisplayMate Performance test, real world performance was actually a little bit more impressive. Kill Bill Volume 1 look colorful and sharp with nice deep blacks. The display actually includes a dynamic contrast ratio option, but when we turned it down we didn't notice any difference in the screen brightness or contrast when going from a dark to a light scene. You can find this monitor for as low as 160 bucks at Best Buy and it's hard to argue with that kind of price especially when you're getting decent to good performance as you are here. If you're in the market for a 19-inch I'd say give it a look, but make sure you're comfortable with the warranty before purchasing. For more information check out our in-depth review. Once again, this is Eric Franklin, this has been the First Look at the Westinghouse L1916HW. ^M00:01:56 [ Music ]
