Look down at the B from around the outer angle limits and light things go darker and slightly greenish. LCD video projectors have even worse contrast ratio problems, but they’re not nearly as annoying as you might suppose; you just learn not to notice, about half an hour into the movie. At 12 Australian cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity, every hundred Aussie bucks of cost difference will let you run a monitor that consumes a hundred more watts of power for almost a year , and that’s assuming the thing’s displaying an image all the time. This is caused by the backlight’s output leaking past the polariser-stacks, and there doesn’t seem to be much any LCD manufacturer can do about it. But the manual goes on to tell you, with commendable honesty, that defective subpixels are to be expected.

You can also fold the stand completely flat, for storage or wall-mounting. As is normal for current by LCDs, this one can display resolutions below its physical pixel number by scaling the pixels up in a not-terribly-fuzzy way to fill the whole screen. So, as LCDs go, the B looks rather good for the money. Compared with a CRT, though, its colour response is still questionable.

For people who don’t just swoon over the razor-sharp pixels that’s always confused me a bit – since when are sharper jaggies a good thing? So I think it’s a bit mean to call this one subpixel defect; I don’t think it even qualifies as half a subpixel defect.

Horizontal symcmaster angles for LCDs are better, because the tall-and-skinny alignment of the subpixels makes them more even in appearance for viewers to the left and right of the screen.

In the real world, this isn’t as much of an issue as you’d think, for two reasons. If syncmaser colour accuracy is important, though, you don’t want any LCD at all.
