EVGA InterView Dual Monitor System

Monitors
[ Music ] >> Eric Franklin: Hi everyone this is Eric Franklin of CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the EVGA InterView dual monitor system. This monitor has 2 built in 17 inch screens each with a 1440 by 900 resolutions. The monitors can function in either clone or extend mode however games and movies aren't playable across both screens in extend mode and you'll only be able to use 1 screen each for movies and games. The monitors can flip 180 degrees but face completely backwards. When the screen is flipped the image automatically rotates and then is easily readable to the person in the back of the monitor this feature would likely come in handy in meetings when sharing information or collaborating on a project or if you and your smelly buddy want to geek out over the latest Avatar trailer without getting too close to each other. Each monitor can also fold inward to face each other kind of like closing a book if said the book was made of 2 monitors. Each screen sports a high degree of gloss that easily attracts fingerprints. The foot stand is wide and solid and keeps monitors stable when knocked from any direction. The on screen display array consists of only brightness control which can be configured for each screen individually. In the upper left hand corner sits a power button. Directly to the right are 2 blue LED lights that signify which display currently has power. Near the bottom center of the foot stand is small hole for the built in microphone. On the front right side are 3 USB ports at the top of the neck resides a 1.3 megapixel webcam which has a small degree of upward and downward rotation. Anyone who's ever used a dual screen or monitor setup in extend mode usually boast about the increased productivity inherent in such a set up and we have to agree. The ability to work on 1 screen while representing another without having to switch windows turns out to be a huge time saver. The monitor comes with various accessories including a dual DVI I to DMS cable and in order for both screens to function simultaneously either a video card with dual DVI ports or an appropriate adaptor is required. While the display scored well in our sharpness color and grayscale test it faltered in our dark screen test as it showed apparent black light bleeding or clouding all over the screen. Movies on the EVGA look washed out color wise and there's nowhere near as vibrant as the best monitors we've reviewed. Games also look a little drab with mottle colors. Also during fast movement and games the image became noticeably blurry. The EVGA has a really unforgiving lower viewing angle so we recommend not using an additional stand when setting up the display. The EVGA InterView is essentially 2- 17 inch monitors combined into a single unit at a cost of 650 bucks. The unit looks impressive on a desk but its performance in games, movies and our display mate test is below average. That being said the units dual screen feature is incredibly useful and actually does seem to produce productivity. Casual users should steer clear however, considering the price and lack of connection options. Really it's the business minded user who will benefit most from this dual screen set up unless 2-17 inch monitors just aren't enough. Once again this is Eric Franklin it's been a first look at the EVGA InterView dual screen monitor system. [Music]
