Construction

The LWX-30-AMS does not come with any particularly fancy construction options. In essence, it is just a very large LCD panel with speakers attached to each side.

Albatron's IA division (Monivision) appears on the front of this LCD, but to not confuse anyone, it should be noted that Albatron and Monivision are one and the same. The housing of the display is a mixture of plastic and brushed aluminum and radiates a slight aura of simplistic elegance.

Unfortunately, there is not much in terms of cable management. Much like any other TV, do not expect to move the LWX-30-AMS much once you set it up - there simply are not many options to do so. All of the signal and AC inputs are recessed within the unit, so that you can easily push it up against a wall (or even hang it on a wall). There are no options for tilt, pivot or swivel.



Inputs are what make a display full of features, and there is no doubt that this monitor is feature-filled. Our LWX-30-AMS is one of the more capable monitors that we have seen for inputs, which makes it an excellent conversion appliance; there is no need for additional adaptors or unusual signal decoders.

    LCD's look alright for 30"range but I am not a fan of LCD's for tv usage.

    Plasma's look MUCH better to my eyes for tv usage.

    The screen only running 1024x768 is pretty useless imo. Wasting all of that native screen resolution. Someone at the design should be shot! But good to get more lcd's on the market to drive the price down.

    Hey any reason why pc lcd's are not as bright or they don't have to be?

    I know my 12" Sony laptop lcd is bright enough at max for me. Same with my 23" monitor is very bright at max.

    Samsung Australia has a 0 dead pixel policy for their LCD's about 21" IIRC. I dont know about Samsung US. Reply

    I am saving my pennies for a LCOS or DLP tv. Never liked lcds and never owned one. They still cant solve the dead pixel problem, which I find unacceptable. Reply
