Setting up the DS-1900 is a bit of a pain. Not only do you have to attach the monitors to the stand, but to connect it to your computer, you have to wrestle with two separate input cords, as well as two power cords, each with their own power brick. Luckily, there is a cable management clip to keep the cords somewhat corralled.
The DoubleSight DS-1900 turned in average scores on CNET Labs DisplayMate-based tests. Its grayscale performance showed an overabundance of the color red, which tinted light grays violet and made darker grays look purple. Color screens were better, with few color errors, though color fade wasn't consistent. The DS-1900's text was dark black and completely legible, but small amounts of jitter, or fluctuations in the electronic signal, made the image appear unsteady.
DVD playback was average: we saw lots of movement in the backgrounds and noticeable ghosting. Gaming screens looked better, with nice bright colors, excellent details, and no streaking.
