Summary: Right out of the box you will notice that this monitor has incredible design and great aesthetic value. The edges of the monitor are cut at an inward angle so that the edge of the monitor appears luminescent when refracting surrounding light. Even from the back, say if you were using this product in an office, the monitor has an admirable and pleasant design. The electrostatic(?) power on/off button gives the monitor a futuristic touch.
Samsung SyncMaster™ 193P (Silver) 19 inch LCD Monitor
7 October 2006
Summary: This is a classic monitor. It has everything you need in a workhorse monitor without excess. In particular I enjoy the ability to rotate the monitor from the usual landscape orientation to the portrait orientation. Landscape is good for spread sheets, CAD, some photos, etc. but I find portrait mode much more convenient for text, letters, websites, blogs, documents and the like. The rotation feature was a major factor in my decision to buy the 193.
Summary: I have had this LCD for about a year now, and I have been impressed with it everyday! I do a lot of graphics and this LCD was good to go right out of the box! I didn't need to do any color customization at all. The only down falls are the power supply isn't intergrated, so you have a brick to deal with and you have to use software to adjust brightness, contrast, etc.
Summary: I am an sight impaired individual that was using an CRT that was made by AOC. THe monitor was ok but it was causing a lot of eye strain. So, I researched quite a few LCD monitors and I went to some of the major electronics to preview the displays. As I kept researching and previewing many displays my eyes was always affix on the 193p. I was impressed with the contrast, brightness, and color depth. So, I went ahead and purchased it from j&R Electronics.
