Hardware Description

The MultiScan 720 is a solid 17" offering from Apple that any user shopping around for such a monitor should consider. The on-screen controls, however cumbersome they may be, are comprehensive, the image is sharp at the recommended resolutions, and the case is relatively small and attractive. As far as image quality is concerned, the MultiScan 720 provides brilliant crisp images. Image quality remains sharp and distortion in all resolutions. The on-screen controls, apart from the brightness/contrast switches, have been reduced to a single button and knob, an approach that you'll appreciate. Pressing the button brings up an on-screen menu with controls over every geometric aspect of the picture, color settings, and preferences for the controls themselves.
