Introduction

Not so long ago, our resource published material about the Huawei monitor - MateView. A distinctive feature of this model was the 3:2 aspect ratio, which was the best suited for work or study: more text in Microsoft Word, more convenient timeline in Adobe Premiere, easier content consumption in the browser.

In addition, MateView was designed in such a way that it could partly compete with Apple monoblocks: a strict stylish design, an abundance of metal, an unusual hinge mechanism that holds the screen, built-in NFC for transmitting data from mobile devices to the monitor, the ability to return 65 W of power to charge laptops or smartphones.

Simultaneously with the announcement of the MateView monitor, the MateView GT was also introduced. Toyota Corolla 2008 1.8 CE Black Interestingly, Huawei doesn’t position it as a gaming monitor: it’s just an ultra-wide monitor with a diagonal of 34 inches, up to 165Hz refresh rate and HDR support.

Review of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A22s 5G (SM A226B/DSN)

A niche smartphone with 5G support for minimal money - it's not even on the Samsung website, but it's sold in Russia. Compare with Galaxy A22 - is it worth the money?

Kia Picanto test. The last of the city cars

Somehow imperceptibly, almost all compact city cars left Russia, which replaced compact class sedans and liftbacks like Hyundai Solaris and Skoda Rapid. There are always two real city cars left on our market, this is the hero of our material Kia Picanto and Chevrolet Spark, along with its counterpart under the Ravon brand.

TCL TW30 MoveAudio S600 TWS headphones review

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

However, the device has the technology that was introduced at CES 2020, AMD FreeSync Premium. It is an addition to the core FreeSync technology: mandatory Low Frame Rate Compensation (LFC) and a refresh rate of at least 120Hz at FHD resolution. In addition, the device has 5 “monitor acceleration” modes.

One of the features of the MateView GT monitor is a stand with built-in speakers and RGB lighting. Moreover, the translucent strip, under which the LEDs shimmer, is equipped with a touch zone for adjusting the volume of the speakers. It's unusual, original and just cool!

At the moment, Huawei MateView GT costs 42,000 rubles.

Appearance

Unlike the MateView monitor, the novelty with the GT index has a simpler appearance: the body color is only black, almost everything is made of plastic, the leg, although metal, is angular, as if an L-shaped shelf was screwed to the monitor.

p>

The only unusual element is the handset-stand with RGB lighting, touch volume control and speakers. But first things first.

Screen width - 807 mm, height - 362 mm, depth - 240 mm (from the front of the "tube"-stand to the back of the console), the minimum distance between the table and the bottom edge of the monitor is 75 mm, the maximum is 186 mm, from the table to the top of the screen - 545 mm. Screen curvature - 1500R. My main Philips 346P1 work monitor has the same bend radius. By the way, recently I began to hear a strange squeaking sound somewhere on the back of the device. I called the support service, and they promptly sent a courier for the monitor for free and took it for diagnostics. Here I am waiting for an answer on a possible problem.

UltraWide monitor using Philips 346P1CRH as an example

Sharing my impressions of the Philips 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor: ease of use of such devices, work with photos and videos, Word, dual window mode, picture quality and other important things ...

I don't think there is any special meaning to the rounding of the monitor screen. But if you sit behind such a display for a long time (a month or two), then flat matrix monitors will seem convex to you, like CRT TVs. Moreover, this effect lasts for two weeks!

The MateView GT weighs approximately 10 kg. I can’t say that this is a lot, but in view of the specific stand, I would recommend putting something flat under the “legs” of the console to distribute the load.

The “leg” is attached to the monitor quite easily: just insert three pins into the special grooves of the device. On the "leg" there is a contact pad for transmitting data from the monitor to the "tube". One of the advantages of the mounting system is the support for VESA (100x100mm). But if you decide in advance that the monitor will be hung on the wall, then buy the MateView GT Standard Edition model without backlight and speakers. Save about 8,000 rubles. It is better to spend them on a high-quality VESA mount in the future.

The screen tilt angle is between -5 degrees and +20 degrees.

Connectors

They are located in the center area of ​​the bottom of the monitor. Getting to them is extremely inconvenient, since the connectors themselves are recessed deep into the case, and the monitor screen does not rise higher. Here you either need to somehow squeeze your head between the table and the screen, or you should tip the device away from you. Alas, the slope of +20 degrees does not help.

From left to right: USB-C for power (you will find a relatively compact 135W power supply with fixed cables in the kit), two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DP 1.4 port, another USB-C for connecting a monitor to a PC to activate the microphones (they never worked, they are not detected in the Windows system; there is a suspicion that those who indicated the quality of the microphones simply did not check their work!) or to charge various devices. Nearby is a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

A special joystick in the central area below the screen is used to adjust the monitor. A translucent ring with illumination is formed around it. In the operating mode, it is not indicated in any way, but in the standby mode it flashes and goes out smoothly. The brightness seemed to me quite high: at night I had to turn off the monitor from the power supply, as periodic flashes of white backlight, illuminating the bedroom, did not let me sleep. I did not find the settings for disabling this disgrace.

RGB backlight of the monitor leg

Quite a strange thing for a monitor. However, the manufacturer, apparently, wanted to emphasize in this way that "we are also happy with the players." It’s just not clear where the fashion for all these embellishments came from in the form of backlighting mice, keyboards and other devices. It seems to me that, apart from taking a picture for Instagram or making a video, they say, “look how my gadget can do it,” in other cases this is only a distraction from the game and not only.

A 180 mm long strip is integrated into the leg. It is translucent, plastic, with touch control. By default, it is set to smoothly change colors.

In the monitor settings there is a whole section of GamingVision - "Light Effects". Here you can choose a color flow, color ripples or just a flow.

There are a huge number of parameters: the backlight can be made to smoothly change colors from right to left, from left to right, from the sides to the center, or vice versa; there is a single-color mode, pulsation in colors, adjustment of the speed of changing colors. In the end, you can choose to glow in only one color (20 options in total!) Or turn off the backlight altogether.

Monitor settings

To call this menu, press the button below the screen.

Five items will appear in front of you:

  • GamingVision
  • Color
  • Image
  • Input source
  • System setup

In order not to overload you with unnecessary information, I will show all the settings with photos. Separately, it should be said that the AMD FreeSync Premium option is activated by holding the joystick away from you for 10 seconds. Next, you need to look for the AMD FreeSync Premium option in the "Image" section. For me, this moment is completely incomprehensible: why hide a rather important parameter from the user?

Holding the button towards you for a long time will lock the joystick. Shift to the left - a menu with the inclusion or deactivation of eye protection; shift to the right - brightness adjustment; shift towards itself - backlight effects; Shift away from you – selection of color display mode. Functions assigned to joystick shifts can be changed.

Display and its options

Let's start with the basic parameters. Here is a VA-matrix with LED edge illumination. The screen diagonal is 34 inches, or 795x332 mm. The screen bezels are 10 mm at the top / right / left, 19 mm at the bottom. The aspect ratio is close to 21:9. The resolution is 3440x1400 pixels (UWQHD), the density is 109 PPI.

One of the chips is a frequency of up to 165 Hz. The matrix is ​​capable of producing 8/10 bits of color, however this depends on the frequency. At 165 Hz - only 8 bits. The maximum measured brightness is 370 cd/m2. These are not the highest values, but in room lighting the picture is perfectly readable. A semi-matte layer works with reflection.

After measuring the data, I came to the conclusion that the color range of the MateView GT is quite narrow, not even up to 90% DCI-P3.

  • sRGB
  • DCI-P3

I would not dwell on color accuracy, because you should understand that in front of you the monitor is not quite for processing photos or an accurate colorizer in some kind of Adobe Premiere or Resolve. For such purposes, it is worth choosing non-gaming monitors. However, after calibration, you can still achieve more accurate data.

The uniformity of the white color fill is almost perfect. Black color, of course, has distortion. But the flare is noticeable only in complete darkness on a black background. In the photo below, I had to choose a shutter speed around 1/10 second in order to somehow show the uneven filling with black.

For such purposes, it is worth choosing non-gaming monitors. However, after calibration, you can still achieve more accurate data.

The uniformity of the white color fill is almost perfect. Black color, of course, has distortion. But the flare is noticeable only in complete darkness on a black background. In the photo below, I had to choose a shutter speed around 1/10 second in order to somehow show the uneven filling with black.

Introduction

Not so long ago, our resource published material about the Huawei monitor - MateView. A distinctive feature of this model was the 3:2 aspect ratio, which was the best suited for work or study: more text in Microsoft Word, more convenient timeline in Adobe Premiere, easier content consumption in the browser.

In addition, MateView was designed in such a way that it could partly compete with Apple monoblocks: a strict stylish design, an abundance of metal, an unusual hinge mechanism that holds the screen, built-in NFC for transmitting data from mobile devices to the monitor, the ability to return 65 W of power to charge laptops or smartphones.

Simultaneously with the announcement of the MateView monitor, the MateView GT was also introduced. Toyota Corolla 2008 1.8 CE Black Interestingly, Huawei does not position it as a gamer: it's just an ultra-wide monitor with a diagonal of 34 inches, with a screen refresh rate of up to 165 Hz and HDR support.

TCL TW30 MoveAudio S600 TWS headphones review

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

However, the device has the technology that was introduced at CES 2020, AMD FreeSync Premium. It is an addition to the core FreeSync technology: mandatory Low Frame Rate Compensation (LFC) and a refresh rate of at least 120Hz at FHD resolution. In addition, the device has 5 “monitor acceleration” modes.

One of the features of the MateView GT monitor is a stand with built-in speakers and RGB lighting. Moreover, the translucent strip, under which the LEDs shimmer, is equipped with a touch zone for adjusting the volume of the speakers. It's unusual, original and just cool!

At the moment, Huawei MateView GT costs 42,000 rubles.

Appearance

Unlike the MateView monitor, the novelty with the GT index has a simpler appearance: the body color is only black, almost everything is made of plastic, the leg, although metal, is angular, as if an L-shaped shelf was screwed to the monitor.

p>

The only unusual element is the handset-stand with RGB lighting, touch volume control and speakers. But first things first.

Screen width - 807 mm, height - 362 mm, depth - 240 mm (from the front of the "tube"-stand to the back of the console), the minimum distance between the table and the bottom edge of the monitor is 75 mm, the maximum is 186 mm, from the table to the top of the screen - 545 mm. Screen curvature - 1500R. My main Philips 346P1 work monitor has the same bend radius. By the way, recently I began to hear a strange squeaking sound somewhere on the back of the device. I called the support service, and they promptly sent a courier for the monitor for free and took it for diagnostics. Here I am waiting for an answer on a possible problem.

UltraWide monitor using Philips 346P1CRH as an example

Sharing my impressions of the Philips 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor: ease of use of such devices, work with photos and videos, Word, dual window mode, picture quality and other important things ...

I don't think there is any special meaning to the rounding of the monitor screen. But if you sit behind such a display for a long time (a month or two), then flat matrix monitors will seem convex to you, like CRT TVs. Moreover, this effect lasts for two weeks!

The MateView GT weighs approximately 10 kg. I can’t say that this is a lot, but in view of the specific stand, I would recommend putting something flat under the “legs” of the console to distribute the load.

The “leg” is attached to the monitor quite easily: just insert three pins into the special grooves of the device. On the "leg" there is a contact pad for transmitting data from the monitor to the "tube". One of the advantages of the mounting system is the support for VESA (100x100mm). But if you decide in advance that the monitor will be hung on the wall, then buy the MateView GT Standard Edition model without backlight and speakers. Save about 8,000 rubles. It is better to spend them on a high-quality VESA mount in the future.

The screen tilt angle is between -5 degrees and +20 degrees.

Connectors

They are located in the center area of ​​the bottom of the monitor. Getting to them is extremely inconvenient, since the connectors themselves are recessed deep into the case, and the monitor screen does not rise higher. Here you either need to somehow squeeze your head between the table and the screen, or you should tip the device away from you. Alas, the slope of +20 degrees does not help.

From left to right: USB-C for power (you will find a relatively compact 135W power supply with fixed cables in the kit), two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DP 1.4 port, another USB-C for connecting a monitor to a PC to activate the microphones (they never worked, they are not detected in the Windows system; there is a suspicion that those who indicated the quality of the microphones simply did not check their work!) or to charge various devices. Nearby is a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

A special joystick in the central area below the screen is used to adjust the monitor. A translucent ring with illumination is formed around it. In the operating mode, it is not indicated in any way, but in the standby mode it flashes and goes out smoothly. The brightness seemed to me quite high: at night I had to turn off the monitor from the power supply, as periodic flashes of white backlight, illuminating the bedroom, did not let me sleep. I did not find the settings for disabling this disgrace.

RGB backlight of the monitor leg

Quite a strange thing for a monitor. However, the manufacturer, apparently, wanted to emphasize in this way that "we are also happy with the players." It’s just not clear where the fashion for all these embellishments came from in the form of backlighting mice, keyboards and other devices. It seems to me that, apart from taking a picture for Instagram or making a video, they say, “look how my gadget can do it,” in other cases this is only a distraction from the game and not only.

A 180 mm long strip is integrated into the leg. It is translucent, plastic, with touch control. By default, it is set to smoothly change colors.

In the monitor settings there is a whole section of GamingVision - "Light Effects". Here you can choose a color flow, color ripples or just a flow.

There are a huge number of parameters: the backlight can be made to smoothly change colors from right to left, from left to right, from the sides to the center, or vice versa; there is a single-color mode, pulsation in colors, adjustment of the speed of changing colors. In the end, you can choose to glow in only one color (20 options in total!) Or turn off the backlight altogether.

Monitor settings

To call this menu, press the button below the screen.

Five items will appear in front of you:

  • GamingVision
  • Color
  • Image
  • Input source
  • System setup

In order not to overload you with unnecessary information, I will show all the settings with photos. Separately, it should be said that the AMD FreeSync Premium option is activated by holding the joystick away from you for 10 seconds. Next, you need to look for the AMD FreeSync Premium option in the "Image" section. For me, this moment is completely incomprehensible: why hide a rather important parameter from the user?

Holding the button towards you for a long time will lock the joystick. Shift to the left - a menu with the inclusion or deactivation of eye protection; shift to the right - brightness adjustment; shift towards itself - backlight effects; Shift away from you – selection of color display mode. Functions assigned to joystick shifts can be changed.

Display and its options

Let's start with the basic parameters. Here is a VA-matrix with LED edge illumination. The screen diagonal is 34 inches, or 795x332 mm. The screen bezels are 10 mm at the top / right / left, 19 mm at the bottom. The aspect ratio is close to 21:9. The resolution is 3440x1400 pixels (UWQHD), the density is 109 PPI.

One of the chips is a frequency of up to 165 Hz. The matrix is ​​capable of producing 8/10 bits of color, however this depends on the frequency. At 165 Hz - only 8 bits. The maximum measured brightness is 370 cd/m2. These are not the highest values, but in room lighting the picture is perfectly readable. A semi-matte layer works with reflection.

After measuring the data, I came to the conclusion that the color range of the MateView GT is quite narrow, not even up to 90% DCI-P3.
