Help me determine what display this oddity is

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've had this screen for... 7 years? Really really long.
This oddity runs at 1600x1200. Loving the vertical height on this thing. I guess I get the same feeling you guys get when going from 120 to 60 Hz when I'm using a 1080P screen.
It's just... Useful. Especially word.

But yeah, this monitor is getting old and I'm starting to get some cash to spend. Upgrading to a 2710 Soontm.

After getting into monitors and all, the my current monitor has taken my attention once again. And time. Precious time.

Here's a pic of the sticker on the back of it.



It's supposedly called the DMTECH "LV22XVM".
This is the only site I could find that has specs of this screen, swedish though... http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?e=231928
There are some... oddities...

The first one is the resolution and this is by far the weirdest one.
As you can see from the link, the resolution is 1680x1050.
But nooos, you told me it's 1600x1200?
Wel, yes. 1680x1050 gives... odd results. Major stretching and overall failing. Can snap a pic, but I think you can understand what I mean.
Like, try running 1600x1200 on a 1920x1080 monitor.
According to drivers, games, anything that reads from the screen what resolution it is, it's apparently a 1920x1080i screen.
Well. It's not.
1680x1050 is bad? O boy, wait till you put it on 1920x1080i.
It's like the pixels are shifting one up and down every refresh. It's making me motion sick.
1600x1200 is fine. Everything "appears" ok. Everything works.
640x480, the so called "safe resolution" yield an out of range error. Rrrright.
1280x960 and 1024x768 also yields an out of bound error. 1280x1024, 1280x720 and 800x600 work fine ( the 720p is really odd, the actualy vertical resolution is higher, however, I'm only able to see 720 pixels of it, cutting the top and bottom off ).

It... makes no sense to me. At all.

Oh, the inverter is also broken. It needs 30-40 minutes to warm up. Glad I got a laptop.

I simply do not know what kind of screen it is. I simply don't. I guessed TN, since, well, all cheap screens and screens which don't advertise it are TN.
However, it does not have the same properties as a TN screen. For example, my asus N56VB, which has a TN screen, has those TN traits.
The most obvious one is viewing angle.
If I look at the screen of my asus from a slightly tiled angle I can see the colours "whiten".
However, with my DMTECH screen there is barely any whitening or distortion of any kind ( unless you look at a 90 degrees angle or something near that, duh ).

So, what do I ask for... Well. Maybe someone can tell me what atrocity this is rolleyes.gif
This thing is one hell of a mystery to me.

Bumping it once, I don't expect to get something feasible, but I can at least say I tried tongue.gif

I spent about 45 minutes trying to find anything and here is what i got:

http://www.shoppydoo.es/ofertas-televisores_lcd_y_plasma-dmtech_lv22xvm.html#sheet_box

This one actually mentions 1600x1200
http://tweakers.net/aanbod/336131/dmtech-lv22xvm.html

Amazon apparently had it once
http://www.amazon.it/DMTECH-LV22XVM-Dmtech-TV-LCD/dp/B0044AQMAO

http://productdatabase.eu/?country=no&google&category_id=882151&id=3081765

This monitor seems to have been made by some guy, in some town, who sold it for a very short time, and then disappeared into legend. I mean you an search this monitor's model number in google and literally only get 9 pages of results(1 of which is this thread)

That ad is actually mine tongue.gif
But, yeah, thank you for the effort, but my question remain unanswered.
I mean, 1680x1050? It's not 1680x1050...
