I have used my LED TVs to display HDMI resolution 1080 PC pictures before and have never been satisfied with the results, particularly text was very poor. I was therefore fairly convinced that this monitor would give similar results and would be on its way back to Amazon.
I simply unplugged the a Dell DVI connection, plugged it into the HT23, connected the monitor power supply, and booted the PC. Windows booted, I changed the settings to make the HT23 the primary monitor. The picture was vibrant and crisp, slightly too bright but really excellent. Sitting next to the other Dell monitor the HT23 was clearly a far better picture. Text was really sharp and surprising for me considering my previous experience of 1080 big screens. Brightness was easy to reduce to around 80% from 100%, other adjustments are made from an onscreen menu system that is operated from switches on the back of the monitor.
I then connected the USB cable, Windows loaded some bits and pieces automatically and I rebooted the PC, the touch function then worked a treat. Very easy to use and sensitive to the touch, a very good touch experience indeed. I set windows to work with single tap and it is now just like using a really large tablet.Read more ›
I am in two minds as to whether to keep this monitor which clearly has a fundamental design fault. It looks beautiful, the display is crisp and neutral - all in all it is a very nice monitor, if monitor is all you want.
The touch interface is where things get troublesome. The monitor worked once when first switched on with DVI-D video connection, USB (for the touch HID feature) direct to a motherboard USB port on my HP Pro 3500 micro tower PC and power. Power is an external switching power supply directly attached to a moulded 3 pin plug; the output voltage is 12V via a fairly standard coaxial power connector similar to the type used for many laptops - polarity is positive on the inner connector, negative on the outer. The power supply has only a plastic pin where the earth pin would be as is common with this type of supply – no earth necessary.
At the second and every subsequent boot, the monitor simply did not come on. I have another monitor connected to the analogue (VGA) output on the computer so could see that it was booting, although it was complaining that no keyboard was connected. The keyboard was in fact connected to the motherboard USB port directly adjacent to the one I had used for the touch screen connection. By moving the keyboard to a different USB port on the front of the computer, I was able to regain control of the computer but there was still no display on the HannsG monitor.
As the USB connection seemed to be indicated as a likely problem, I disconnected the touch screen USB interface by pulling the USB plug at the monitor end. Two things happened immediately.Read more ›
The handbook, however, is disappointing, appearing to be poorly translated and confusingly expressed. It took me 24 hours to get any sound out of the speakers because the handbook fails to make clear that, if the monitor is connected to the computer's graphics card with an HDMI cable, you must NOT use the audio lead supplied. In fact, the handbook instructs you to connect both the HDMi and the audio lead. It was only when, by a frustrating process of elimination, I disconnected the audio lead at both ends, that the monitor's speakers suddenly sprang into life. It is a shame that the manufacturers skimped on the handbook when they have produced a very fine monitor at a competitive price.
