The Gateway FPD1975W is a 19-inch widescreen display that supports 720p high-definition content. The FPD1975W performs well, with a native resolution of 1,440X900 and adequate brightness and contrast ratings. The response time is 8 milliseconds. Set-up and configuration are not complicated. The stand is a simple round base with two protruding tabs that lock the monitor into place. There are no height adjustment options. The display supports landscape and portrait modes. To the right side of the bezel there are five control buttons. The first button lets you choose between the two inputs, DVI or VGA. The DVI cable is not included. The functions of the next three buttons vary, depending on whether you're viewing the OSD (onscreen display). When you're not viewing the OSD, the Auto button automatically adjusts image size, position clock and phase. With the OSD open, the Auto button is the select function. The Brightness button opens the Brightness menu of the OSD, or, if the OSD is already open, is used to navigate the menus. The Theme button lets you cycle through the preset color/video modes (DVD, Gaming, General Use and Web Browsing), or if the OSD is open, lets you move through the menus. The Menu button opens and closes the OSD. The included EzTune software can be used to adjust most display settings. The picture quality is excellent, colors are bright and the 19“ size allows several applications to be opened at the same time and view them all at once. The FPD1975W also features a Kensington lock slot in case you would like to secure and safeguard your documents. The Gateway FPD1975W with its slim monitor and simple look, with excellent picture quality, sharpness of text and graphics and overall good performance is an affordable widescreen LCD monitor with a few convenient features.
