Sony Trinitron G400PS (19 inch)
Leadtek Geforce 2 GTS / Asus Geforce DDR
Symmic BNC monitor Cable
of the monitor cable is extremely simple. It's as easy as unplugging
your old HD15 cable, and plugging in the new one. Instead of
one connector at each end, there is a standard HD15 connection
at one end, and five separate BNC connectors at the other. After
plugging each connector into its specified port, (red into the
red port, etc) I powered the monitor on and an image instantly
at first I could tell no noticeable difference, after moving
the resolution from 1024x768, to 1600x1200 several differences
occurred. While previously I would get a slight shimmer in the
right hand corner of the monitor, this disappeared. Furthermore,
text that used to be too blurry to read was intensely clearer.
While surfing the web, I noted that to my eye the colors seamed
slightly warmer and more vivid.
further test the ability of the BNC cable, I wanted to a direct
comparison. I hooked the HD15 into my second system, which was
equipped with an Asus Geforce DDR. Now, since the monitor had
two fully functioning inputs I could switch between the HD15
and BNC with "input" button on the front of the G400 monitor.
On both systems I opened up a high
color webpage. Switching from BNC to the HD15, the color
quality degraded sufficiently. To eliminate the chance of one
video card having better image quality then the other, I switched
the cables and repeated the test. Once again, the color quality
significantly decreased when going from BNC to HD15.
you are serious about the quality of your image output, and
are willing to shell out some extra money, there is no reason
not to take the leap to BNC. It's easy to install, reasonably
priced, and significantly better performing than the normal
HD15 method. It will make a difference weather you're surfing
the web, writing your term paper, watching a movie, or playing
the latest game of your affection.
