Envision EN2028 - 20 LCD Monitor review: Envision EN2028 - 20 LCD Monitor

It's relatively easy to make image adjustments using the EN2028's menu buttons and onscreen menu, though there is no indication of how to exit submenus. Through trial and error, we discovered that the button labeled Auto doubles as an autoadjust key and an exit button.

The Envision EN2028's image quality was average overall, but it performed very well on the text and grayscale portions of CNET Labs DisplayMate-based tests. The text was sharp and easy to read, and the display produced a wide, evenly stepped range of very light and very dark grays. Colors looked vivid and accurate, and it did a nice job reproducing smooth, white highlights in Web photos of painted artwork (many LCDs make these light areas look like chunks of data are missing). With the color scales, however, we noticed pink tints in the greens and brown tints in the grays.

With a relatively slow 12-millisecond response time, we weren't surprised at the EN2028's mediocre gaming and DVD-playback performance. Gaming tests showed streaking and aliasing, while DVD playback showed digital noise and ghosting.

Envision backs the EN2028 with an industry-standard three-year warranty, but the panel is covered for only one year. Three years of full coverage costs $40 extra, five years costs $60. Envision offers toll-free phone tech support Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT. Envision's support Web site offers an e-mail support form, driver downloads, a display terminology glossary, manuals, troubleshooting tips, and FAQs.
