Samsung SyncMaster 971p

 

Sure, you've finally got the perfect desktop or laptop that will see you through the four (or five) years of campus life. But if you're like me, you're going to want a few more gadgets to round out your on-campus life.

Good color and light-gray performance. Slick design. Auto-pivot

Only one input. Average dark-gray reproduction

With its fast pixel response, solid image quality, and sleek lines, Samsung's SyncMaster 971P strikes a balance of style and functionality that will appeal to business and home office users.

Samsung SyncMaster 971P Black 19" LCD Monitor (19", 1280x1024, 6ms, DVI, PC/Mac)

 

The $380 (as of January 12, 2007) Samsung SyncMaster 971p does a good job of displaying text, and its unique design helps it stand out from other 19-inch displays.

Unique stand hosts the power button

Does not swivel

The Samsung showed sharp, clear text in our tests. Its uniquely shaped stand houses the power button.

Samsung Syncmaster 971P 19inch LCD Display Review

 

Darth Vader would be rolling over in his space grave if he knew his glossy black trademark look had been appropriated by Samsung for a recent line LCD monitors... not to mention countless cellphones. What have the Imperial Forces come to?!

Ultimately, the 19" Samsung SyncMaster 971P LCD monitor is a well built and good looking display with excellent contrast and good luminance. If it's time for you to replace an older display with an LCD panel, the Syncmaster 971P will fill that role...

Samsung SyncMaster 971P LCD

 

For many years, I have always been impressed by the quality of CRT's that Samsung have made. Just about every CRT I have owned was made by Samsung. But now that CRT's have met their demise due to LCD technology, can Samsung keep their promise in making...

Excellent viewing angle ; No stuck or dead pixels ; Very little backlight bleeding

Software control only ; No Linux support ; Quite expensive for the average user

No OSD (On Screen Display)?

SyncMaster 971P LCD Monitor

 

The key feature of the SyncMaster 971P 19” monitor is an asymmetric stand, which gives the device an elegant appearance. The triple-hinged base allows the user to swivel the monitor by 180 degrees, tilt it by 135 degrees, and pivot between horizontal...

has drawbacks but great monitor overall

 

This is a secondary screen I use for reading pdf's, writing code, or look at lists... The ability to put my screen into portrait mode has been revelatory and my only regret is that I did not get this long time ago. That said, its a PITA to rotate and...

rotating screen is revelatory ; LCD very clear and very bright ; beautiful colors ; two usb ports

glossy black plastic very prone to scratching ; software only controls ; no auto-rotate on os x

Horrible for Gaming and Multimedia

 

Excellent color and saturation.

Image quality is good only for static images, once things start moving.

The Artist's LCD

 

Like other reviewers have noted, this panel has no OSD per se; rather it's controlled by software. I will admit, I was terrified that my meager video adapter (an Intel 945GM) was incompatible with MagicTune. And it was. But after some research, I...

As for first impressions, the unit's design is simple, functional and elegant. The glossy piano black is a nice aesthetic touch, and the positionable pivot stand is well designed and handy. Under the hood, it's a solid performer. I'm a digital artist...

As others have written, this is not an LCD for the "leet gamerz." Is there ghosting? Yes. Is it visible? Image depending, yes. Is it horrible? Certainly not. But then, opinions may vary. If you intend to do more gaming than anything else, sure, you may...
