Start with what is probably the most important communication tool between the hardware and the user's screen. HP is offering the workstation 8540w and 8740w (analysis coming soon) with options for a variety of different screens.
These panels cover the full range of LED displays HD +, as in our test model, to full-HD displays to the new DreamColor display (analysis coming soon)-based IPS technology.
First a word about this laptop models with a resolution of 1600x900 pixels. The matte screen 15.6-inch allows a density of 117 dpi points.
This value is considerably higher than most similar-sized models on the market, which tend to have 1366x798 screens, and therefore promises a clearer picture and allow it to look more on the screen.
The decisive factor in whether choosing HD + screen or full-HD alternative is knowing that you will use the laptop. For applications such as CAD or image editing / video, we recommend the higher resolution model, which allows a clear view of many windows and widgets.
However, if you plan to connect the laptop to an external monitor or just looking for a common portable office, the model HD + will be more than enough.So what do the numbers on this screen? As always, our tool Gossen Mavo monitor measured the brightness for each of the nine subdivisions rectangular screen. The lower middle section showed a maximum brightness of 212 cd / mē, dropping to 165 cd / mē at the top of the screen.
The distribution of the brightness of our test laptop (AUO01EE) only achieves a low average of 77.8%. Comparing these values with those of full-HD display previously analyzed, it is easy to distinguish the poor lighting in our screen (compared with a max. 225 cd / mē) and a brightness distribution below the average (DHF: 84%) .
