Samsung SyncMaster 192T


Positioning your display too high can lead to unnatural viewing angles and chronic neck problems.

Everything else about the SyncMaster 192T is just as impressive, including its bright, crisp 19-inch LCD, DVI and dual analog RGB inputs, built-in stereo speakers, and clutter-reducing cable management system. Using anything less is likely to be a pain...

Samsung SyncMaster 192T review: Samsung SyncMaster 192T


Samsung SyncMaster 192T

Unique and stylish design; analog and digital inputs; included wall-mount bracket.

More expensive than other 19-inch LCDs; some adjustability limitations; price tag warrants much higher image quality.

The Samsung SyncMaster 192T looks cool, but you can get a higher-quality, more adjustable 19-inch LCD for a lot less money.

Samsung SyncMaster 192T 19" LCD Flat Panel Display


What do you get when you cross a 19" LCD monitor with a pair of speakers? Give up? The Samsung SyncMaster 192T. Not only has Samsung once again delivered a thin panel LCD, but this time they decided to add a nice little pair of speakers in the base....

Samsung Syncmaster 192T LCD


Large visual real-estate, Easy to use controls/options (OSD), Sleek design, Magic Bright feature

Slight ghosting, nothing major, Base of the unit tends to want to spring out way too often

As usual, the other OSD (On-Screen Display) options are the same.  Samsung has not shifted much in this department since the OSD is simple and to the point.  The auto adjustment option is still there, one of our more loved options from Samsung. We put...
