Samsung SyncMaster 170T Review

 

LCD monitor prices are continuing to drop, and perhaps this holiday season is the time to invest in an ergonomic display. If you already own an LCD screen, then perhaps it’s time to upgrade to a 17” model; I know I want to. We have reviewed numerous...

Samsung SyncMaster 170T TFT Display

 

For those of you who have lay awake at night dreaming of a flat screen in place of that bulky cube of a CRT display this may be the monitor for you.

CRT displays excel at producing clear and crisp pictures with little discernable difference from pixel to pixel. LCD display's by their nature are forced to adhere to a matrix of blocks and there is little room for the eye to blend lines into smooth...

Samsung SyncMaster 170MP Review

 

We have reviewed a few Samsung liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors in the past, all being 15 inches; however, today we received a 17 inch monster from Samsung, specifically the Samsung 170MP. Prior to the 170MP, we analyzed the 150MP which scored...

First GlanceNot to our surprise, the Samsung 170MP looked identical to the 150MP and had all the features of the 15 inch model. After setting up the monitor, and taking a moment to admire the 170MP display, we loaded a few still images on to the...

Samsung 170MP 17" TFT Display-TV Review

 

With the continuing trend in convergence, it was only a matter of time before the venerable television was combined with the cutting-edge technology of flat panel TFT.

As the TV-tuner is included within the display, this autonomous feature imparts no extra strain (however minor it might be) on the computer's video card or processor which is an added benefit in our books. Finally, at a fairly reasonable price for a...

Samsung SyncMaster 170 MP

 

I have been using my 170 MP for a little over a year now with my MAC. I do lots of digital photography and the picture is still perfect. It is far superior to any tube monitors I have ever used. The PIP is great, I can watch the ball game and edit red

For full screen TV viewing, don't get too close because it has a grainy picture. But at normal viewing distance for a 17 inch TV it looks fine. It isn't HDTV and doesn't pretend to be

Samsung has won me over as my monitor supplier.

 

Compact & POWERFULL

Don't apply pressure to screen otherwise there is a mark

Samsung SyncMaster 170 MP 17 in LCD Monitor

 

Consumer review by:

Nice, Great Price!

 

The 170N is a very nice monitor at a good price. I absolutely love the compact size, light weight, and slim bezel. Colors and contrast are excellent. Auto-adjust is all I needed to touch. 1280x1024 is marginal for a 17", but you can enlarge the fonts...

SAMSUNG 170N-Ivory Ivory 17" 25ms LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 450:1

 

Wow. This monitor has excellent picture, and as no surprise...no dead pixels here either. This was my first LCD monitor and I am quite impressed. Always use the native resolution (1280x1024) to get the best picture. It was a pleasure doing business...

Product Specifications

The Samsung SyncMaster 170MP is a multi-function TFT-LCD monitor that takes the concept of multi-tasking to an entirely new level. This 17-inch flat-panel display functions as a computer monitor, a TV and a video monitor - all in one. And all this versatility comes with the clearest pictures, sharpest images and most vivid colors you can imagine. The 170MP delivers next-generation TV and high-definition images with its built-in TV tuner. So while you work away on your computer, the monitor's picture-in-picture functionality lets you watch TV, or even enjoy a movie from your VCR or DVD player. The 170MP features a 400: 1 contrast ratio, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 0.264 pixel pitch and a viewing angle of 160/160 degrees. It also includes a remote control, RCA video & audio, S-Video and a built-in antenna connector to accommodate RGB analog input and NTSC. And thanks to the 170MP's slim, sleek design - plus its wall mount capability - you can enjoy an uncluttered desktop instead of one that's overrun by multimedia equipment.
