We measured the horizontal viewable angle of the IBM ThinkVision L190p at 173 degrees, tying it with the Cornea CT1904 as the best in this respect of any 19-inch LCD tested recently. That, combined with its ability to swivel, makes it useful for sharing data on your screen with onlookers. The L190p's on-screen display is simple to adjust, thanks to an icon-based menu and comfortable, easy-to-press, curved buttons. Our jury gave this monitor Very good scores for both text and graphics; these ratings fall in the middle range of PC World's scores.

No-nonsense unit delivers acceptable images, and its swivel function and wide viewable angle make it easy to share the screen.
