Product Description

Amazon.com

A simple 17-inch monitor from HP, the MX70 is a high quality CRT that comes with a number of useful features and an attractive price tag. A maximum non-interlaced resolution of 1,280 x 1,024 and 85 Hz maximum refresh rate (at 1,024 x 768) combine with a 0.27 mm dot pitch to provide detailed images suitable for a wide variety of home and home office uses. The 15.8-inch viewable image has a 90-degree black matrix, P22 medium short persistence phosphor tube, while an anti-glare screen treatment helps cut back on harmful reflections and the resulting eye-strain.

Built-in speaker mounts are provided for use with optional HP Polk audio speakers, while the base has a 60-degree swivel and a 5-degree forward, 15-degree back tilt. The MX70 is PC compatible only, connecting via a 15-pin mini D-sub cable and is a plug-and-play monitor, ready to use right out of the box. With the onscreen controls, you can adjust a wide variety of monitor settings, including pincushion, brightness, contrast, H/V position, H/V size, color temperature, and much more.

The 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz power source consumes approximately 90 watts during normal operation, and around 5 watts during sleep mode. The MX70 has a 16.3-by-17.4-inch footprint and weighs 33 pounds. Energy Star certified, the MX70 also comes backed with a one-year limited exchange warranty.

I received the mx70 monitor as part of a HP system package purchase and my initial impression (that is, before I turned it on) was that this thing was probably a piece of junk. After all, it was just the "add-in" part of the package and it did have a goofy space age design and one of the notches for the monitor stand was broken out of the box.
Happily however, the mx70 proved me wrong in all respects. The 17 inch display opened a whole new world of picture that I did not get with my previous 15 inch monitor. The colors are quite vivid and the "goofy" space age design actually makes the monitor easier to view as its gray-scale colors do not draw the eye away from the screen.
In addition the menu mode on the monitor is easy to use and has a number of extra features including an advanced features menu as well as an advanced geometry menu that allows the user to change the geometric shape of the display.
Finally, the monitor has an incorporated serviceable microphone at the top of the monitor and whose connection runs along the monitor's connection to the tower.
I would highly recommend this unit.

I have recently purchased a new computer system: monitor, CPU, printer, and scanner. This monitor was the one I choose to go with my CPU (see my review for the hp753n system) based on the resolution of the display model in my local Circuit City. Vibrant colors and great readability on everything. Also, when watching DVDs on this screen, everything is clear and crisp just slightly smaller than watching on a standard TV:) I highly reccommend this monitor based on price and quality, an A+ model.

I CAN say that this is a good monitor; the build it mic is REALLY good, the speakers are mehhh, but over all, GOOD.

HOWEVER, it has a very low contrast no matter what I do, making it hard to see some things.
