Best LCD I've owned, yet most affordable

electronicguru05, Ebay
4 December 2007
  • Summary: I decided to purchase this because it was in my price range, has inputs for both VGA and DVI. Out of all the lcd's I've owned I'd rate this as the best. Crystal clear video's, images & presentations, It can handle my video cards max resolution of 2048X1536 (the desktop scrolls), you can look at it from any angle and still see a clear screen and read every thing unlike others that have an added layer that polarizes the screen. It is also external VESA mount capable.

The 'x' stands for extraordinary, and expensive

  • Summary: I just fired up this monitor three days ago and I don't want to leave my office. I am a regular windows user and semi-technical person. Not a certifiable geek. This review is from the perspective of a 39 yo guy who loves using computers but wouldn't build his own and isn't an overclocker. There are many reviews that you can read on the net that cover this monitor from a gaming perspective.

Good buy

Kalid Azad, Amazon
29 January 2005
  • Summary: I bought this monitor in May. The only issue was single faulty pixel (it couldn't turn off, and would always show blue, but would not show up if any composite color, like white, was needed). I haven't seen a need to return it because the colors are bright and vivid, games and movies play fine, and the monitor looks great. The design itself is very sleek, the buttons are very subtle and out of the way.

It's not that special

terry lin, Amazon
29 January 2005
  • Summary: Although Samsung claims a revolutionary 12ms response time the overall gaming experience was no better than a 2 year old 15" TN+film Samsung Syncmaster 151S. I'm not using the bogus PVA-based sample either, this review is based on a retail version purchased in Taiwan. What IS most disturbing about this display is that out of the box: 1. whites are WAY too blue (probably 10,000K) and 2. the internal gamma circuitry is set way too high.

Samsung service is perfect

Shinygirl, Ciao
9 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Ik wilde graag aangeven dat Samsung een zeer goede service verleent. Ik heb een Samsung Syncmaster 172x beeldscherm aangeschaft. Na een paar maanden vertoonde het beeldscherm vreemde strepen. Na verloop van tijd begon het beeld uit te vallen. Dit gebeurde nadat de winkelgarantie van een jaar voorbij was. Ik heb daarom contact opgenomen met Samsung en die gaf me de keuze, omruilen of laten repareren.
  • Pros: Goede service van Samsung
  • Cons: Geen

Sehr gute Qualität und ansprechendes Design

dragonengine, eBay.de

  • Summary: Dieser LCD Monitor besticht durch sein elegantes Design. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die sehr schmalen Seiteneinfassungen des Monitors, was besonders positiv ist, wenn man mehrere Monitore dieses Typs nebeneinander stellen möchte. Die Qualität des Displays ist ebenfalls sehr gut und ich bin mit diesem Monitor rundum zufrieden.

Super Monitor!

  • Summary: Nun berichte ich von meinen Monitor. Einen Monitor zu beschreiben ist eine schwere Aufgabe Mein alter CRT Monitor gab sein Geist auf und eine neuer musste her. Da es kaum noch CRT Monitor gab entschied ich mich für eine TFT Den Samsung Sync Master 913V 19 Zoll Aussehen: Schmaler TFT mit einem eleganten Rahmen aus Silber und ein nicht so großen Fuß. Der Fuß hat eine Kippfunktion. Der TFT kann auch an einer Wandhalterung festgemacht werden. Anschluss: Einfach und Schnell.

monitor da sballo samsung SyncMaster 172X

Damasco, Ciao
28 December 2005
  • Summary: Il modello Samsung SyncMaster 172X della Samsung è un monitor LCD da 17 pollici. La dimensione dei pixel è piuttosto contenuta, rendendo la qualità dell'immagine finale decisamente apprezzabile. La risoluzione massima è di 1280 x 1024 pixel, a 16,2 milioni di colori. per le tipologie di connessione c'è: la porta VGA e la porta DVI. Ha un buon tempo di risposta, consuma come tutti gli altri monitor LCD, e lo consiglio agli appassionati di videogiochi.
  • Pros: si appende al muro
  • Cons: non ha le casse integrate

Une de plus satisfaite

zu78, Ciao
12 May 2005
  • Summary: Ayant ce petit bijou, si je puis dire, depuis le début de la semaine, je reste entièrement satisfaite de tout, aucun défaut. L'écran doit bien sur être reglé en 1280*1024 pixels pour une qualité optimale, le petit 12ms de rafraichissement ravira les gamers ainsi que ce design bien pensé: les bords de l'ecran sont très fins ce qui le fait paraitre plus petit que les autres 17 pouces mais tout l'espace est ainsi exploité.
  • Pros: Qualité, design, réglable
  • Cons: Aucuns à ce jour

  • Summary: Allgemein =============== Den Samsung Flachbildschirm SynyMaster 172 X habe ich jetzt seit etwa einem halben Jahr. Ich hab ihn im Saturn gekauft, damals war er von 500,- Euro auf 420,- Euro runtergesetzt, weil es sich um das letzte Ausstellungstück handelte, das sie noch hatten. Ich hab mich etwa 2 Stunden im Geschäft umgesehen und musste leider feststellen, dass alle anderen 17 Zoll Monitore leider alle über 500,-Euro?
