Prestigio P776 and P796 LCDs thwart Computer Vision Syndrome

prestigio p796

Apparently people who stare at a PC monitor for more than three hours a day can develop a condition known as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which causes all sorts of nasty headaches, blurred vision, and other unwanted aches and pains. As sedentary writers glued to our multiple displays for closer to 12 hours a day, we would seem to be at very high-risk for the dreaded CVS, which is why we were super-excited to learn about Prestigio's new 7th Series line of LCD displays featuring anti-glare glass. Apparently the 17-inch P776 ($279) and 19-inch P796 ($349) were designed to "eliminate possible health risks," but at the expense of performance, with both units sporting run-of-the-mill 12ms response times, 1280 x 1024 resolutions, and 450:1 contrast ratios. For now these monitors seem limited to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, but we sure hope they cross the pond soon, cause our neck and shoulders are hurting so much that we may have to shut down the site and go back to hand-writing the copy and faxing out the posts.
