Samsung SyncMaster 171P (Silver) review: Samsung SyncMaster 171P (Silver)

 

Samsung Electronics paired up with the F.A. Porsche design house to deliver the SyncMaster 171P, a sleek, 17-inch LCD. Its price is a bit steep, but its balance of substance and slick design make it a good choice for businesses that need a...

Contemporary style; vivid colors; wide viewing angles; sensitive onscreen controls.

Panel creaks when adjusted; power cable fits too loosely; some fuzziness at the screen's corners; slight ghosting during DVD playback.

This sleek LCD may be a little pricey, but its sharp image quality and snazzy design make it a good choice for style-conscious business and home users.

Looks Like Love The SyncMaster 170MP's satiny, silver bezel and chrome menu-control buttons are handsome, but more importantly, its picture quality is stunning. Its colors are saturated and vivid, its focus is impeccable, and its sharp contrast draws...

Low price; high-quality picture; built-in TV tuner; extensive input options; easy controls; attractive.

A top-quality, full-featured LCD monitor with an entry-level price.

High contrast ratio, Large viewing angle, Pivoting screen, Beautiful touch sensitive OSD controls, Sleek silver finish, Designed by F.A. Porsche

Non-removable video cables

The first connector we tried was the analog.  The LCD screen is extremely bright and crisp even when using the analog connector.  The refresh rate is locked in at 60Hz like its younger brother the 151V .  The 1024X768 resolution was first tested at...

Many of my coworkers in New York City tend to sum up flat-panel LCD monitors as "cool," a concise but shallow understatement. Flat panels are the envy of big-ass CRTs (and their owners) everywhere, a sexy combination of performance and space economy in...

The SyncMaster 171MP's video quality is, not surprisingly, as good as or better than that of any display device I have ever personally reviewed, regardless of size. The picture is richly detailed, colorful beyond all reasonable expectations, and...
