Perfect monitor

jetcityman1, Ebay
29 December 2006
  • Summary: This monitor is sleak, thin-bezeled, highly adjustable, and has good brightness and contrast abilities. There isn't a thing I dislike about it. I love that it mounts to the wall with hardware included and the screen rotates from landscape to portrait orientation.

Outstanding monitor

Bemace, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a dual monitor setup with 2 CRTs, and bought one of these to replace the older one which was looking pretty sad next to my newer CRT. Now my new CRT looks sad next to this new Samsung LCD, so I'll be buying the 19 inch version to go with it. The color and sharpness of this monitor blows away all the monitors I've seen at work (I work in IT) or in stores. I also play Desert Combat on this monitor, and ghosting hasn't been a problem.

Excellent Item - Worth every penny

El Parsi "Moderate shopper", Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for something that gives me the quality of an apple monitor without the expense. Compared this with Sony and after ample self doubt, decided to go in for a samsung monitor. I am more than overjoyed. It looks jaw-dropping-awesome, the design matches my mac mini, and gives amazing features and operation. If I need a second monitor, this would be my sure shot choice, any day!

This LCD Monitor Rocks!

Tezza "Tezza", Amazon
17 March 2005
  • Summary: The Samsung 173P is easy to set up. Just take it out of the box, plug in the power, then connect the LCD to your PC just like you'd plug in a normal CRT monitor. Then power up your PC and enjoy! The 173P's out of the box setting is a little bright. Luckily, they give you a driver to install (on a CD), and two great programs, Magic Tune and Natural Color. Magic Tune lets you adjust the resolution, brightness and contrast then save them as presets.

decent monitor; but no Mac driver

Joe reader, Amazon
5 March 2005
  • Summary: I bought this as a second monitor, and as such it performs nicely. The price was right ($320 after rebates), and it's one of the thinnest 17" moniitors I've seen. Image quality is nice, and contrast ratio is better than many models, but it's a big dissapointment that there are drivers available for all versions of Windows and even Linux, but no Mac driver!

Fabulous monitor...

  • Summary: This thing is great! Best image and text I have seen. Colors are splendid. Being able to rotate the screen 90 degrees for portrait mode is excellent. The software controls that came with it work well too. I am very pleased with this monitor.

BAD A$$ MONITOR!

Dude "Digital Dude", Amazon
28 July 2004
  • Summary: I just replaced a 19" Sony Trinitron CRT with this monitor and my only regret is that I didn't go Digital LCD sooner! What a difference! As sharp as the Trinitron is, this Samsung will eat it for breakfast....and here is the reasons why- Eye Strain- Goodbye eye strain! Flicker free images....no glare...nice sharp text and edges. Colors- The reds are red and the blacks are black and the whites are BRIGHT!...no bleeding or faded colors.

Want a REAL review?

  • Summary: Click on the link below for a full in-dept review by me. I've had this up before any of the major review sites. It's been up since November 2003, right about the same time it was officially released in the U.S. [...] By the way, apparently there is actually a way to switch input modes via hardware. Just put your finger on the power button and hold it there for a few seconds. The output changes automatically.
