Syncmaster 740BF

 

Samsung's latest 17-inch display, the SyncMaster 740BF, offers some unique extras that set it apart from other displays. For instance, it comes with Samsung's MagicTune software, which walks you through the process of adjusting color, brightness, and...

Tilts easily, and has a clean look

Doesn't pivot

According to Samsung, the 740BF has a superfast 2-millisecond response time. However, even though screens with lower response times should theoretically deliver less motion artifacting, in our real-world motion tests we noticed no discernable...

Samsung SyncMaster 740T Monitor

 

The 17" Samsung SyncMaster 740T monitor impressed us and we're sure that it will impress you. One feature you are sure to enjoy is the astounding 1500:1 contrast ratio. On the off chance (or likely chance) that you are not a "techie", contrast ratio is...

Samsung SyncMaster 740B 17" LCD Monitor

 

With the price of computer LCD monitors becoming more affordable; their popularity is on the rise. With lower prices one would assume that the quality and performance on these lower priced LCD Monitors would be quite lacking and in most cases this is...

Digital and analog inputs, Great looking, Space Saving/More Desktop Space, 8ms response time

The display is crisp and the colors are vibrant. Also the 740B is one of the brightest LCDs we've seen. As for gaming, when the monitor is set to a refresh rate of 75hz there's virtually no ghosting while playing games. The quick 8ms response time...

Outstanding monitor

 

I got the 740T because of the promised 1500:1 contrast ratio and I wasn't disappointed. Type is very easy to read and crisp. The included software is easy to use and works well. This monitor replaced a 5-year-old Samsung 15" TFT which had given good...

Excellent definition, easy rotation

Cable connections too visibile

Product Specifications

The Samsung SyncMaster 740BF is a 17-inch analog and digital TFT-LCD monitor delivering crisp, clean text and bright, vivid colors. The SyncMaster 740BF display offers the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions. Input connectors for this display include 15-pin D-sub and DVI-D. It offers MagicTune, MagicBright II, MagicColor and MagicZone technologies.
