Square prism PRISMA unpacking
PRISMA-01 and PRISMA-02 belong to the PRISMA series of commercial monitors under GALAX. This series is also a new series developed for commercial and home use after the e-sports series VIVANCE. The only difference in screen specifications between PRISMA-01 and PRISMA-02 unpacked this time is that PRSIMA-01 is 24 inches; PRISMA-02 is 27 inches, and the rest of the specifications are the same. The screen uses a VA panel with a resolution of Full HD 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 75Hz, which is much higher than the common 60Hz screen, allowing our vision to be smoother when browsing the web. Since PRISMA is positioned on commercial screens to protect users’ eyesight. PRISMA also adopts the most advanced flicker-free and eye protection technology, as well as low blue light mode, so that users can avoid the discomfort of dry eye syndrome.
In addition to the screen, the package includes an HDMI cable, a USB-C cable, a power supply cable, a stand, a base, and screws and screwdrivers for installing the screen. It’s important to note that the PRISMA series brackets require screws for installation. To install the screen, first, attach the brackets to the screen, then use the included screws to secure them in place, and finally, attach the base to the brackets.
The bracket and base of the monitor have a sleek, pure black design that matches the body of the screen. The black paint is also textured, making it resistant to fingerprints and glare. It has a similar feel to PBT material on keyboards. I prefer this design as it does not show dirt easily compared to a glossy material.
The PRISMA has a minimalistic design with a clean and sturdy look, making it suitable for an office setting. The black colour gives it a professional appearance. One of the most notable features of this monitor is its “extremely narrow bezel” design, which not only makes the screen itself smaller but also creates a wider visual display. The PRISMA also allows for flexibility in adjusting the angle of the screen to meet the user’s needs. The screen can be tilted up and down, with an adjustment range of +20° to -12°.
On the back of PRISMA, you can see a centre column bracket design and holes at the bottom for cable management. The connection between the screen and the stand allows for adjustable tilt angles. The screen connection ports at the bottom are simple, including HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, and USB-C ports. This allows the user to connect devices to an external display via USB-C and also allows for charging power up to 65W. Additionally, PRISMA has built-in speakers on both sides of the screen, making it convenient for business users who are constantly moving and eliminating the need for separate speakers or earphones.
Light up eye protection certification, 75hz update rate
PRISMA comes in two sizes, 24 and 27 inches, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and is best viewed at a certain distance. When used with a PC, it has a resolution of 1920×1080, a refresh rate of 75Hz, 8-bit RGB and SDR. The overall colour and viewing comfort of the screen are very good. The 75Hz refresh rate is higher than the typical 60Hz, making the overall experience smoother when watching videos or browsing the web.
Although PRISMA supports HDR, it can only be activated through the OSD on the screen. However, the peak brightness is only around 250cd/m², which is insufficient to meet the VESA DisplayHDR certification standard. SDR has better colour reproduction, and the overall effect of the HDR mode is similar to a deeper contrast.
Next, we will test the PRISMA screens using landscape photos, Youtube videos, and game screenshots. Although the PRISMA series is marketed as a home and commercial screen, it also supports the G-SYNC function. This is great for players who don’t need extreme performance but still want good colour effects and additional features. Compared to the main screen I am currently using and the office screen that was reviewed before, it seems that the manufacturer has put a lot of emphasis on the presentation of colour contrast and the adjustment of various additional modes. For example, the black in FLIM mode will be darker, the edges of FPS mode will be sharper, etc.
Overall, the GALAX PRISMA series monitors are entry-level monitors that are priced reasonably and have a minimalist design. They have a narrow bezel design that makes the screen visually wider and an adjustable tilt angle for user convenience. They come with HDMI, DisplayPort, USB-C ports, built-in speakers, and G-SYNC support. The screen has good colour rendering and a 75Hz refresh rate, providing a smooth experience when watching videos or scrolling the web. They also have anti-flicker and anti-blue light eye protection functions, which is beneficial for those who use the screen for long periods of time.
Overall, the PRISMA series of screens are designed with a minimalist style, stable black appearance, and professional sense, making it suitable for office use. The “extremely narrow bezel” design makes the screen visually wider and the ability to adjust the angle of the screen to meet the user’s needs. The screen supports HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 and USB-C ports, built-in speakers, and the G-SYNC function. The screen has good picture quality, a refresh rate of 75Hz, and anti-flicker and anti-blue light eye protection functions. The rich connection interface allows easy connection to various devices and provides 65W charging. Overall, it is a good choice for both office and gaming use.
In summary, the PRISMA series offers an excellent viewing experience with its minimalist design, narrow bezel, and adjustable angle screen.
