PRODUCT FEATURES & PICTORIAL
As a good way to show you as much as possible about your potential future purchase, nothing says more than a good pictorial.
With an overall depth of eight inches, you will notice a drastic increase in usable desk real estate. The monitor base is very stable and allows for a full 90 degree horizontal rotation and around 20 degrees of vertical movement through tipping the monitor forward or leaning it back for the perfect viewing angle in your particular environment.
The front of the monitor consists of the actual monitor screen along with the speaker panel (pictured above) and the front configuration and power keys. The speakers included with specific model are very capable of handling normal day to day windows bells and chimes and maybe even some light music, but anything with high bass or extreme volume levels will cause them to distort. If used normally, these particular speakers will serve you with excellent clear sound for your day to day computing.
The front configuration panel is comprised of the automatic adjustment button, the menu botton, the channel and volume along with the video source, picture in picture and power buttons. Oddly enough, I found myself not even needing to use them. Why? The next photo will tell you.
Every function that can be changed manipulated and set via the front panel can also be changed through this fully functional infrared remote control. Whether you are configuring your monitor for the first time, changing video sources, surfing for your favorite TV sitcom or just to turn the monitor off and the end of a work day, the remote is a very handy assessory.
