Lenovo Thinkvision L197 Widescreen LCD

Bleep Rating


The L197 is a 19 inch widescreen LCD from Lenovo’s “Essential monitors” range. The screen features a maximum resolution of 1440×990 a sensible 1000:1 contrast ratio and it sports DVI and VGA input connections. Lenovo claim that this screen is upto 35% more energy efficient than competing products and this seems reasonably accurate; it certainly uses 40% less energy than my Dell 2001fpw and it doesn’t radiate an iota of heat like most monitors do.

This screen is ideal for business environments where high spec features and specifications aren’t required. The build quality is very good and the screen’s only real fault is the maximum height of the stand. I ended up propping it up on a book.

Overall the L197 is a decent value no frills green offering from Lenovo.

    Of course it’s fairly clear in which wow leveling guides supply you with a lot more experience with a new smaller amount of time, however there are various some other benefits from stabilizing this way very. As a human Paladin you gained a 10% bonus to reputation gained but not much else. A very important factor you will learn once you start dungeon progressing is usually that Amazing won’t contain
    maps mainly from the Basic and also Burning up Campaign dungeons.
