PRODUCT FEATURES (cont'd)
As with any monitor connected using the digital connection, the picture is very crisp and the contrast is excellent.
Now remember I could not find the menu controls while the unit was powered down, well that is because they are hidden and completely electronic. Just barely grazing your fingers over the buttons activates the menu. All are touch sensitive and very unique.
Also mentioned previously was the fact that you could change the orientation of the monitor to portrait orientation. Install the pivot software, and scrolling through long documents will be no-more.
The gaming was pretty good. You still get the minor delay which is a given with TFT's, but the colours...WOW!! Talk about VIVID!!
CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
Clean, sharp and modern. These three words boil down my opinion on this great looking monitor. Add in the fact that you have your choice of analog or digital connection, Samsung quality and F.A.Porsche design and you have yourself a stylish and practical investment for your home or office. If this baby could game like a CRT, I would have to think we have the ultimate 15inch TFT. But with the increase in technology needed to allow this LCD to game, your cost will go up 50%. Let's be patient and see what the future has in store for us =D.
As you can probably make out, this is yet, another superior TFT LCD monitor from Samsung. Does this company actually make a bad TFT LCD product, I doubt it. So, in conclusion of this review from TweakNews.net, if you are in the market for a amazing LCD monitor, don't hesitate to open your wallet, grab a Samsung!!!
