What can TFT LCD Technology do for me?

This review will assume that you know the basics of TFT (Thin- Film Transistor) LCD Displays. If you need more information on the technology behind this monitor, I have found a website that concisely breaks it down for you HERE.

Below is just a small list of what TFT LCD technology can do for your small business or home environment.

1.) Radiation - TFT LCD technology virtually eliminates radiation which is emitted from normal CRT monitor and can promote a healthier computing environment for your children at home and/or your work environment.

2.) Low Power Consumption - LCD monitors have a power consumption of about half of the equivalent CRT monitors. Imagine having a corporate building with 500 monitors in your business, the savings in power cost is said to pay for the monitor in about three years.

3.) Colour - Colours on LCD's are much more vibrant that CRT monitors.

4.) Physical Size - One of the main advantages is the size difference. LCD monitors cover about 30% of the desk area than a standard LCD.

5.) Viewable Area - Now here is the kicker, if you buy a 17" CRT monitor, it's safe to say that you will have an actual viewing area of about ~16". Now, when a TFT LCD is said to be 17", the viewable area IS 17", which is a far more honest approach to marketing.



The going trend in today's computer market are computer monitors that can function as a TV. Such is the case with the Samsung Syncmaster 151MP which I reviewed recently. But what if I could put a twist on that and have a LCD TFT television act as a computer monitor with the push of a remote control button. Well, with this 17 inch widescreen beauty, your wishes have been granted. The tv/monitor has everything your heart desires. DVD functionality, HDTV and digital cable ready, great for gaming (No Ghosting!!) and is missing nothing other than a spot in your home or office.



Samsung's Tantus contains features like:

- 17" Wide (16:9 Widescreen Viewing)
- 450cd/m, 400:1 C/R
- High Definition TV Ready
- 2 Component Jack (Y/Pb/Pr)

- Cable TV Capable
- Double Screen & PIP
- Sound : 10W*2(17"), 6W*2(15") <---Nice sounding too!
- High Res. PC Compatible(WXGA)<------1280x768 Max resolution!

Let's take a look at this awesome TV, or should I say Monitor???
