Samsung 970P


Brighten your computing experience with the bad boy of the big screens, the Samsung 970P.

OCD: Cabinet is a little fancy-pants for our tastes, no OSD buttons


In the DisplayMate ( evaluation scripts, the 970P stood out as offering the best screen uniformity of the LCDs here, betraying nary a hint of backlight on a completely dark screen. It also proved to have the deepest black level and...

Syncmaster 970P


If monitors entered beauty contests, the Samsung SyncMaster 970P could count on a bouquet and a tiara. With its soft lines, one-button design, and translucent white finish, it certainly attracts attention (the button turns on the unit). Its screen,...

Attractive cabinet with stable stand

Screen requires adjustment to look good

In short, the handsome 970P's strong point is its customizability. Its weak point is that customizability isn't an option, but something you're forced to use to get acceptable image quality. So much went into the design, and the price is so high, it...

Samsung SyncMaster 970P White


Samsung has been a top player in the LCD display market in Canada and the US in recent years. I have come to expect high quality, fully functional displays from them. With each additional one I review, the bar is raised just a little bit more, making...

Looking at the SyncMaster 970P you'd know right away that this display isn't like all others.

Samsung SyncMaster 970P LCD Monitor


In the past we have looked at a rather large number of LCD displays from Samsung. All have proven to show that Samsung really has a strong grasp on the LCD market. They have a large lineup of LCD displays, all of which have great technology behind them...

Great design ; Large range of movement ; Good performance ; Both DVI and analog interfaces ; Large screen size


Overall, the Samsung 970P proved to be yet another great LCD monitor from Samsung. It's stylish looks and flexability paired up with the excellent performance make it a great LCD display for all uses.

With its sleek, one-button design and iPod-like white finish, the Samsung SyncMaster 970P has style to spare - if you can spare the cash to buy it.

Samsung SyncMaster 970P


It is a nice monitor which can be really bright if your prefer. The picture quality is super, and there are some barely noticeable darker corners. My biggest complaint is the design kinks, but still, the panel itself is excellent.

Really bright (I don't set it to the highest strenght), a striking design

Height adjustment has a limited range. The neck is unstable and cannot support the weight of the panel. A separate transformer and a "tail" piece to plug in power and cable. Pricy

Samsung SyncMaster 970P


This was a secondary monitor purchased for another computer I own. I can give a direct compairson to the Dell 1905FP which in itself is a very high quality monitor. First thing I noticed was just how sexy this monitor is. Easily compares in my opinion...

1) Looks oh so sweet! 2) Very functional design 3) Super high brightness to contrast ratio 4)So easy to use

I refuse to say anything bad about this monitor
