Samsung SyncMaster 172W TFT-LCD Monitor Review

ModSynergy
23 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The Samsung SyncMaster 172W does the job very well. It displayed sharp image quality in everything I threw at it and color reproduction was spot on. There were some instances that my eyes hurt with the combination of 60Hz and if the brightness was high. Turning the brightness down solved that.
  • Pros: Bright, Sharp Image Quality and Color, Excellent stand, DVI support
  • Cons: Speakers, Bright can be too bright sometimes, Some ghosting and only 60Hz
