My trusty monitor

Smoochy, Amazon

  • Summary: I just upgraded from this monitor to a new one after using this monitor for close to a decade. It's been trusty, it followed me around to LAN parties in high school, served as an extra screen for my laptop in undergraduate, and will now serve the same function on a desktop in graduate school.

  • Summary: I purchased a Syncmaster 171v around a month back. The installation went off smoothly using supplied CD s/w and the display is sharp and clear till now. Most application s/w and games look good in it. It's higher contrast ratio of 400:1 gives text & graphics a crisper look.

Not a bad buy - at the right price

  • Summary: I bought a 171v at [a local store] for [$$$], with a...rebate. Installation and setup was mindlessly simple. I found the Natural Color SW to be useless. After a week I exchanged the unit for another 171v, as there was a noticable color/contrast gradient from top to bottom.

Brendan, Amazon
1 May 2003
  • Summary: Ok, so let me say first, I play games, and that is the main use of my computer. So I am probably expecting better results than most people would ever need with an LCD.
