The Diamond View DV153 from Mitsubishi Electric Australia is a high-contrast active matrix Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor with 15" (38.1 cm) viewable screen size. It combines thin, sleek design with superior image quality and high brightness and contrast.


The Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) LCD panels used in Mitsubishi's monitors provide clear and bright images with a wide viewing angle. LCD monitors have the added advantages of low power consumption, light weight, and small size when compared with conventional CRT-based monitors.

Key Features:

  • XGA (1024 x 768 pixel) Resolution LCD Panel

  • High Brightness (250 cd/m2) and 350:1 Contrast Ratio

  • Plug and Play Compatibility with Microsoft® Windows® 95, 98, 2000, Me and XP.

  • Apple® Macintosh® compatible

  • Space Saving - the DV153 LCD monitor’s footprint is only 186 mm deep including
    the stand.

  • Lightweight - only 4.7 kg

  • Lower Power Consumption - 30 W maximum during operation with audio

  • Power Saving

    Power management complies with VESA DPMS standard. When the system is idle (in monitor off mode), the monitor automatically cuts its power consumption to less than 3 W.

  • On Screen Display

  • Automatic Adjustment Function for easy installation: automatically optimises the displayed image by tuning it to the characteristics of the graphics signal

  • High Quality Ratiometric Expansion expands the image to full screen with any resolution

  • Removable Stand with VESA Standard Mounting
