Transvideo 7" vs Boland 7" vs SmallHD 7"
Posted 19 May 2015 - 05:21 AM
Hi all, has anyone tried all 3 high brightness monitors and can say which is the best in his opinion?
I'm looking to replace my Marshall 6.5" monitor and would love some advice...

I haven't tried the monitors you mention, but I'm very happy with my BON. It's the BEM-072h highbright with 1100 nits.

I have the Cinemonitor hd and I don't even own a hood the thing is so bright (at "user 100%") setting. It's got an amazing level and I upgraded to inertia compensation horizon, which isn't really needed.
There is even a 6" version that they came out with that comes with a brighter screen and the upgraded horizon stock... Couldn't imagine even brighter.
However, I used the Transvideo Rainbow when I had to send mine in and I couldn't see anything ... LIKE ANYTHING it was terrible. Had some cool features, but you could really only use it as a AC monitor with a nice hood.

Im looking for a lighter monitor than the Cinemonitor, even though I'm aware that that is a great piece of equipment.
It's disappointing to hear that the Rainbow is not viewable in sun light situations, guess it's the Boland or SmallHD now...(-;

I have the RainbowHD SBL (High Bright), and haven't had to use a shade with it yet, excellent viewing in all conditions. You'd probably use the high bright mode outdoors, thats what its for. Can't comment on the Boland but I would choose the Transvideo over the SmallHD hands down. (using as an AC monitor).

Evrim, how does the level of the Rainbow compares with other levels?
Also, does the screen have a lot of reflections in daylight viewing?

No reflections in sunlight have in your mind that I don't need hood in sunny Greece .

What are your thoughts of the digital level of the Rainbow?
Thanks for helping!

digital level on transvideo rainbow HD is very well programmed an it works as it should. i heard very bad feedback from smallHD users about their level although i never saw myself. when i mailed small HD about a possible upgrade they said "There is not a firmware upgrade coming to address the horizon indicator. "
