Planar PXL2790MW

Review by Tom's Hardware

Plasma Deposition Coated 2560x1440 LG -AH-IPS panel with Displayport, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.

The Planar PXL2790MW use coated tempered glass some call Plasma Deposition Coating.  The Planar is very accurate, has fast pixel response times and is clearer and more vibrant than monitors without PDC, but has a 20ms delay (measured with the Leo Bodnar device) and has a glass covered black bezel which vastly reduces the perceived black depth.  The perceived black depth can be increased with bias lighting (light placed behind the display) or by placing non-stick silver tape tape on the black bezel.  The Planar has one flaw which some may deem fatal which is the very high minimum brightness of 174cdm/2 when the menu brightness is set to zero.
