"We've tested DisplayMate Multimedia on USB and we loved it!
It's the best DisplayMate ever made and it's totally portable.
This is absolutely a must for any AV Tech's tool box!"
Gary Kayye, Publisher of the Audio Video
"The new USB based DisplayMate is a superb tool for the commercial and
home theater calibration technician that is portable, affordable,
and best of all accurate. Well done!"
Alan C. Brawn, Director of
Getting the Best Picture on Your HDTV - Your Digital Living Room, Special Section, January 7, 2008
"If you strive for perfection, use the same software that the manufacturers
use to adjust their TV sets: DisplayMate.
DisplayMate tests your TV's performance in many different areas and makes it
easy to optimize settings that will deliver the best possible picture."
"DisplayMate on USB is the easiest version of DisplayMate that I've ever
worked with. The USB Drive is a great convenience."
HDTV Resource Center
"A premier test suite for both home and professional use,
DisplayMate has always been a superb and effective tool.
The new DisplayMate USB version is even easier to use.
The Multimedia on USB Edition is
particularly useful for technicians evaluating a customer's PC
or for IT departments that need to support a large number of PCs,
with numerous innovative suites of proprietary DisplayMate test patterns."
"For over 15 years, I have relied on DisplayMate as a key part of the tests
I have done on any display, as a brand owner and marketeer,
as a reviewer and as an industry analyst.
During this time, the product has always evolved to draw attention
to new aspects of display performance.
DisplayMate on USB makes it convenient as well!"
Bob Raikes, Publisher of
Market Research Newsletters
"The new DisplayMate Multimedia on USB is the best version of DisplayMate yet.
Everyone that I've shown it to has been very impressed with its simplicity and versatility.
Plus I'm thrilled with the portability that it provides.
It's a brilliant package and goes great with my notebook's HDMI capability,
converting it into a video test pattern generator that is much more versatile
than devices costing a lot more."
G. Alan Brown, President of
"I am duly impressed. Those who have come to rely on the various versions
of DisplayMate for evaluating and setting up displays over the years will
be delighted with the new USB versions. DisplayMate's claim to fame has
always been its deceptive simplicity, with many of the test patterns cleverly
designed to provide sensitive results using only the user's eyes for
instrumentation. With the USB versions, things get even simpler.
Plug in the DisplayMate USB drive and the program runs, generating test
patterns for the exact pixel format of your display, be it monitor,
projector, or TV. The software requires no installation or registration.
It just runs, and it leaves no footprint on your computer when you remove it.
To run it on another computer/display combination, just plug it in.
That's the great thing about DisplayMate USB: It just works,
while managing to conceal the sophisticated understandings of
display operation and human perception on which it is based behind
a simple and familiar interface."
Ken Werner, Senior Analyst of
Display Industry News, Analysis and Publications
"DisplayMate has been part of Maximum PC's hardware-testing arsenal for
years, and now that the entire series of display evaluation scripts
comes on a handy USB key, we love the utility that much more. We're
constantly rebuilding and reformatting our test beds, so it saves us
time and hassle to be able to plug the DisplayMate USB key into any
system--no installation required!"
Katherine Stevenson, Deputy Editor of
: Contributing Editor of PC Magazine
"I've plugged DisplayMate on USB into every computer in the house that has
any kind of display adjustability. And now I have to say that we are a very
well adjusted family! I also ran it on an Alienware notebook computer with DVI
output and used a DVI-to-HDMI cable to examine my 50-inch Sony Bravia LCD
microdisplay TV. I had used two different commercial setup packages
(one terrible, one pretty good) previously, but was able to tweak a bit more
performance out of it with DisplayMate.
It still has the expected black compression, but I was able to lessen
it a bit without compromising the overall black level or blowing out the
whites. I'm actually impressed that the set did as well as it did, but
DisplayMate confirmed that it's a solid performer at an affordable price.
Thank you for the opportunity to test DisplayMate on USB.
It brings video testing to a whole new level of convenience."

"It works too well, or is that easy?
DisplayMate on USB is a delicious mix of technology and simplicity that is
easily a must-have tool for reviewers and IT managers.
Not to downplay the quality of the tests provided (they are as comprehensive
and revealing as always --and that is as expected, considering the source),
but just the time savings alone in being able to plug and play
(it works under Vista!!!!!) and not having to clean up afterwards
is a dream come true when dealing with multiple displays
if you just need to go from desk to desk. You could try to get this
back from me but you'd have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands to do so."
: Author of Upgrading and Repairing PCs, Laptops, Windows, and other books
"DisplayMate on USB is very impressive! This is something that all
technicians, videophiles, and even game enthusiasts should have. The USB
version is even more portable and easier to use than a CD, and I especially
love the fact that you don't have to install anything, it just runs. The
included tests automatically scale to practically any display mode and
resolution, which makes it easy to adjust and tweak displays for optimum
performance. It is especially useful for comparing and evaluating different
displays as well."

where it knows everything about the setup and resolution
and then generates all the files appropriately in such a nice manner."
