WHAT'S HOT: The 17-inch SyncMaster 700NF renders extremely sharp text and beautifully nuanced graphics. It's not the cheapest 17-inch model available, but at $239 it's still a good value.

Celeron sells! The first wave of Celeron-400s (as well as two Celeron-433s) yields five Budget and three Home chart makers this month.

Bright colors.

Samsung SyncMaster 700 review


The Samsung SyncMaster 700NF delivers the affordable, high-quality performance we've come to expect from Samsung monitors. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better 17-inch monitor for the price. The Samsung SyncMaster 700NF delivers the affordable,...

Excellent display quality; flat screen; pop-out control panel.

Slight geometric tilt.

A high-performance display for much less money than you'd expect; heartily recommended.

Greatness at 17"


Built a comp. for a friend at 1350 bucks and used this monitor. I must say, I was expecting greatness, but this is above and beyond that. The sharpness, color, and brightness is awesome. The refresh rates are sky high, running 800x600 at 120hz or...

Product Specifications

This slim display checks in at 17.3 inches wide, 18 inches high and only 8.6 inches deep. But the small package delivers a remarkably large screen: the viewing area is a full 17 inches. Its size makes it perfect for crowded work areas, and the low heat, low emission LCD technology is well-suited for clean room and hospital settings. Its superior picture quality and space-age looks make it attractive for image-conscious executive offices. Conserving space with its compact design, the 700TFT is ideal for packed environments such as financial trading rooms. VESA standard compliant, the 700TFT can be mounted onto a wall to illustrate presentations or to save additional space. The distortion-free, flicker-free image means you can work for hours with no eye strain, viewing fine text and details at more angles and from a greater distance than with a conventional CRT. The SyncMaster 700TFT supports up to 16.7 million colors in VGA, SVGA, XGA and SXGA pixel formats. The thin film transistor(TFT), active matrix liquid crystal display supports a maximum resolution of 1280 X 1024 at 75Hz. Digital user controls and on-screen menu allow customization of screen properties such as contrast, scaling on/off, filtering, color control and more. The video input uses a 15-pin to 15-pin D-sub connector, and the output supports separate H/V sync, composite sync, and sync-on-green. This model has a universal power supply for configuration flexibility, and its emission levels meet strict TCO '99 level standards.
