Evaluating Exorvision's Newest Monitor

For the last several years, I've been a big fan of Exorvision monitors. The company specializes in monitor technology that is specifically made for the dental environment.

All of their monitors are glass sealed and water resistant so they can be disinfected by wiping them down... including the screen! From their website: Per the National Electrical Code, the dental office is classified as a "Patient Care Area," and since liquid is present, it is also classified as a "Wet Location." The electrical code is stricter for these special conditions. Hygiene is also an OSHA concern in these areas. A regular PC monitor is designed for the office environment where the code requirements are less stringent. The ExorVision LCD monitor, on the other hand, has been designed specifically for the dental office where patient safety and operatory hygiene are central issues.

Their latest model is now sitting on my desk as I type this. It is the ET19Hm. This beauty is a 19 inch monitor with inputs for composite video, S-video, VGA, and...DVI!!! That's right, the DVI port on my Mac is connected directly to the ET19HM with no adapter. Needless to say, the image is amazing.

The monitor is also designed for use in health care with serious thought given to the fact that theses will be used to view radiographs and clinical images. The 19 inch monitor has an active matrix TFT LCD panel, .294 (H) and .294(V) pixel pitch, a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024, and a contrast ration of 1000:1

Overall, this thing is impressive. It's been in use now for about 24 hours and I'm still getting used to the sharpness of the images. If you need a monitor, make sure you check out Exorvision. I'm confident you'll be as amazed as I am.
