    Samsung Syncmaster 172MP LCD Monitor Review

    Bottom Line: Samsung gave us another monitor to review, sort of... The Samsung 172MP is a 17" LCD multifunctional display unit with the capability to perform as a monitor, TV (using its optional TV tuner) , or both with its Picture-in-Picture feature. This monitor looked very promising. Did it stand up to our expectations? Find out in our official review....

        The 172MP comes packed with a nice bundle of features and an easy to use menu system. This monitor is targeted towards home users, students and anyone who multitasks on a regular basis. Does it meet these needs? We'll find out in the performance section of this review. The 172MP has an estimated street price of $679 which I feel may be a bit steep for the average home user that doesn't use the 172MP to it's full potential; however,  for those users that do, it is definitely a fair price.  As usual, Samsung backs their monitor by a solid 3-year Parts/Labor/Backlight warranty. Also, included with the 172MP is a mail-in form for an extended 3 months of warranty.
