    Features (cont.):

    Magic Tune Software - So what is the deal with not having an external buttons to change the monitors settings? Well Samsung has decided to try something new and introduced the Magic Tune monitor calibration tool. When you load the program you are greeted with a host of options.

    This is the brightness configuration screen. At the bottom of the screen is a set of reference bars used to gauge your adjustment. The contrast screen is very similar to the brightness screen.

    Along with the brightness and contrast, you can also adjust the 173P's clock and phase. This is used to help synchronize with the video signal to get rid of any possible distortion.

    Above are some more options available to configure the monitor's settings including Samsung's MagicBright feature. Below is the color calibration tool.

    Using this Calibration Tool is a two-step process.
     
    First, notice that the Gray Square is not a true gray.
     
    Moving the Gray Square around within the Color Ring will alter the tint of the Gray Square.
     
    In the example below, we need to remove the blueish cast from the Gray Square. Drag the Gray Square toward the blue area of the Color Ring. Stop when the Gray Square is a neutral gray tone.
