PRODUCT WALKTHOUGH & PICTORIAL
Moving around to the rear of the monitor you will see that there is little to point out from a distance. One thing to note is the abundant ventilation which helps to cool the massive backlight and the incorporated power supply. You would be amazed at the amount heat that radiates from the back. Temperature measurements with a infrared thermometer resulted in temperature values going up to 58c during normal use.
The monitor panel itself can be tilted 30 degrees and the rear can be raised an additional 3 inches to accommodate you unique viewing position. There is no panel rotation mechanism for landscape viewing.
The rear connection panel has connections for your digital and analog video signal along with a composite and S-Video connection. The audio power connection was perplexing seeing there is no audio included with this monitor but may be an external option package available sometime in the future. To the right is the USB hub connections which includes one connection to connect directly to one of the computer's connection and enables a small two connection hub in the back of the monitor. There are two other connection on the side as well which I will show you farther down this page.
The internal power supply is accessed has a separate power switch and direct connection. As always remember to have the switch turned off when plugging in the power connection to stop any chance of power surge damaging internal circuit components.
The left side of the monitor houses the high definition component connections along with two additional USB ports I mentioned earlier.
