Scherm in actie (foto's van gebruiker uit de .uk):
Ik kom helemaal geen informatie op GoT tegen over dit merk. Ik heb net twee 'Hazro HZ24Wi 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor' besteld bij https://www.overclockers....duct.php?prodid=MO-002-HO na lang getwijfeld te hebben tussen de Dell 2408 , HP LP2475w en dus de Hazro HZ24Wi.
De Dell en de HP Vielen uiteindelijk af vanwege "Wide Gamut". Ik heb persoonlijk geen zin om te gaan prutsen met profielen e.d. Dit werd door gebruikers op hardforum...
(http://www.hardforum.com/...ght=video+profile&page=17 - let op, enorme thread)
als een groot nadeel beschouwd. Ik wil eigenlijk een scherm dat allround prima prestaties geeft. Daarom de Hazro HZ24WI 24" die net als de NEC 2490 (niet in Europa verkrijgbaar) een sRGB scherm aan boord heeft. Ik ga het zelf vooral voor desktop-, film- en fotowerk gebruiken. (Premiere / After Effects etc)
Wat informatie over de Hazro HZ24Wi 24"

All Hazro monitors are VESA mountable. For detailed instructions on how to do this, please refer to the relevant section in the support pages.
Uit de manual:
Er kan dus een VESA mount aan, maar je hebt hiervoor eerst een speciale Hazro bracket nodig. Ik heb een mailtje naar Hazro gestuurd over hoe, wat,waar,etc.needed accessories:
Hazro rear cover bracket - model HZVS100 [only available from Hazro]
Hazro approved VESA 100x100 mm Mount or Arm [x1] *
Screws: M4*12 [Quantity = 4]
Screws: M4*8 [Quantity = 4]
4) Attach the Hazro model HZVS100 Bracket
5) Attach the VESA 100x100mm mount or arm
Once the bracket has been fixed, a Hazro approved VESA mount or arm can be attached using
four M4x8 screws.
Warranty can become void if VESA mount used is not approved by Hazro. Please contact Hazro
for a list of approved mounts, brackets and arms suitable for use across the Professional Range.
De Wi is een nieuwe revisie (gereleased in augustus 2008) van de W (gereleased in december 2007) variant van dit scherm. Verschillen (copy/paste uit een review van de 26 Wi en een bericht van een user op overclockers.co.uk):
Uiteindelijk ben ik 1091 euro in totaal kwijt inclusief verzenden. Zo'n 550 euro per scherm. Vrij netjes al zeg ik het zelf. Dit is wel in combinatie met de huidige 6% kortingsactie: (loopt 22 oktober om 16:00 af!!) http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=17931747*HDCP support over digital interfaces
*True VISTA and MAC OS X compatibility (fixing a bug identified in the original versions)
*HDMI interface added
*Video In interface
*Component Y-Pb-Pr interface including red/white audio out, and stereo in and out for HDMI audio chanelling (The previous RGB and DVI-D interfaces are retained as well)
* The scaling chips have been updated and the screens now use more advanced chips from Genesis (who also supply Dell screens). This will allow better support and scaling to resolutions such as 1080 HD. This also goes hand in hand with support for a wider range of resolutions. Hazro claimed input lag would also be reduced
*HDMI cable included with packaging along with a better quality DVI cable than before
*OSD Sensitivity addressed - supposedly better to work with
* Full and thorough instruction manual now included
*Full printed carry case type box
*Overall build quality addressed with minimal gaps in folds. Aluminum is very difficult to work with in that a
clean and flush 90 degree 'bend' is not possible and therefore, all the folds have to be rounded off.
*Quality control in selection of panels addressed to minimize Dead-on-Arrival [DOA] issues along with
pixelation problems in the first 30 days of monitor purchase.
*The panel itself is different to the previous HZ24W, the previous panel was matt finish whilst this one is glossy exactly like the NEC 20" GX IPS panel but the clarity and vibrancy of photographs is absolutely sublime! The Wi has the same polariser as on the 26" screen.
*The previous screen had a slight black trail when moving the mouse cursor on a white background. This is completely gone on the Wi. On top of this there is zero visible input lag that i could determine (my work PC has a wired MS optical mouse of POS variety ;p). The quality looks amazing fro my work PC, I can only imagine what it will be like on my PC at home tonight.
Het verzenden is niet al te duur. Opties zijn Parcel Force worldwide (27 pond) of DHL. (31 pond)
Verder kan ik nog niets zinnigs zeggen over deze monitor aangezien ik hem nog niet heb, maar ik ben erg benieuwd.
Opinies van andere users:
Al met al is dit het scherm om voor te gaan als je geen wide gamut wil. (aldus de users op hardforum.com)1:
Input lag is between 16 and 32ms from testing against a CRT but in reality you won't notice this. I certainly don't and FPS game regularly as well as use a Logitech MX Revolution mouse and also watch movies during the nights.
I don't know what Hazro's pixel policy is (never needed to check) but mine has zero dead pixels, very minimal backlight bleed but this is more of the IPS white shading you get from various angles so probably not even backlight bleeding. It does not cause any concern though.
I've had the Hyundai 24", Dell 2408WFP, BenQ FP241W and the new HP L2475 24" IPS display and rate the build and image quality + performance of the Hazro above all them.
The Dell was the worst with very bad text fringing and input lag beyond 60ms.
4.Banding: Totally fixed with new firwmare
5.Backlight luminance: A lot of complaints from customers so the new firmware reduces the backlight luminance, we should be able to hit from ~180cd/m² to ~125cd/m² by default (trying to hit the target of 120 but obv screen dependent). This is done by reducing the amount of power the backlight uses, hence reducing it's luminance and allowing us to hit darker blacks.
6.Future revisions: There will be a revision of the 24" and 26" monitors in around Feb, which will allow us to modify backlight luminance ourselves (amongst other fixes which I've forgotten).
7. I don’t have any more pics of the HP + Hazro together, I kind of disowned them when the HP got returned! The easiest way to describe the difference side by side though is that since the HP is wide gamut it will display sRGB colours outside of the RGB range since it’s spreading everything into the wide gamut.
I found even in sRGB mode it still was displaying wide gamut colours and in colour managed apps like Firefox 3 (enabled in A:C) and Photoshop that sRGB colours appeared inaccurate and muted whilst in non colour managed apps they looked fine until you compared the same image in the same app on the Hazro and you could see there were very slight differences in shades of colours but you’d only be able to tell side by side. Many people have said they’ve not noticed any difference. You’d need to cycle between the modes to see them and enabling and disabling colour managed mode in firefox is a good way especially on this forum because the blue shade is duller after calibration in colour managed mode whilst in normal mode in firefox the forum’s blue tone is more vibrant by a small amount than the sRGB output on the hazro.
This was the reason I chose to return it and stick with sRGB because I needed colours to be consistent and accurate in all applications all the time, not just those that are colour managed. It would also mean all my photographs would need to be converted to AdobeRGB or sRGB depending on where they were to be uploaded or displayed.
sRGB just works and is print accurate and I used everywhere. Once manufacturer only do wide gamut displays then I’ll look into them again but not until then.
I don’t want to put people off the HP because it’s a great screen but for the constant usage a monitor gets from me in a calibrated environment I just could not spend time converting between colour profiles all the time for web use and local use.
Nog een enthousiast berichtje van een user:
gepost op Oct 8 2008
Just an update for you guys still in limbo about buying one of these.
The ANC man came to deliver the screen today (firmware upgrade done by Hazro to version 2.1 to fix branding reports and also dim the backlight for better luminance) and so I set about putting it back into action.
I can confirm the out of the box black point has been improved somewhat. It's now reporting 0.4cd/m2 before and after calibration. An excellent improvement in the 2.1 firmware!
I can confirm that the lack of RGB adjustment is not a major issue. The preset 6500k colour mode is actually 6800k which is not too bad but after calibration I've gotten it almost bang on 6500k with 1% deviation.
The luminance of the backlight has also been reduced somewhat from 400 odd cd/m2 to around 210-250 depending on how you like your brightness and contrast settings. Mine are at 50 and 25.
My before and after calibration results are below:
What does it all mean? it means now the HZ24Wi has excellent blackpoint levels, VA panel standard without the colour shifting symptoms of non IPS panels. It also has a much more pleasing out of the box luminance so isn't eye burning right away.
Version 2.1 firmware means the HZ24Wi is now made of awesome and win, probably more awesome than win, YOU DECIDE!
