It's sometimes important to know when specific computer monitors have been manufactured because they, like every other computer components, are revised from time to time which may improve monitor quality.
Monitor Info View is a Nirsoft application that can display information about flat screen monitors or crt monitors. The software is portable and can be executed from any location. This could come in handy when analyzing computer monitors, for example before making a purchase.
The software extracts the information from the EDID (Extended display identification data) records of the computer monitor. Displayed are information like the serial number of the computer monitor, the build week, frequencies and image sizes among other information.
Monitor Info View displays the supported resolutions and their refresh rates of every computer monitor as a bonus.
