    Samsung Syncmaster 172MP LCD Monitor Review
    Author: Jakester

    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....

    Conclusion:

    The SyncMaster 172MP is an excellent monitor for home users that are into multitasking. It provides a large amount of possibilities for usage and performs very well at all of them. As a monitor, it provided a sharp and vibrant picture that was pleasing to the eye. As a television, combined with the remote, I couldn't find any flaws in how it operated. The remote provided full access to all of the options that one would normally use when watching TV (ie: mute or channel recall options). I can't recommend buying this monitor if you only plan on playing games on it as it is not designed for that type of use. The menu system of the 172MP is easily the best I've seen. It is extremely easy to navigate and configure all aspects of the display using the soft touch buttons.

    Pros:
      Vast array of uses
      Menu System is easy to use
      Takes up very little desktop space
      No dead pixels
      Speakers perform well

    Cons:
    Ghosting during intense movement
     

    The display quality of the 172MP could be slightly better, but overall is quite good. As previously stated, the 172MP is designed towards the average user that is heavy into multitasking. Samsung's main focus when creating this monitor was its ability to perform all of its functions well. With this said, I will give the SyncMaster 172MP a  well deserved 9.5 out of 10. I was very impressed with the performance of each of the different functions the 172MP provides. If the quality of the display were slightly better then I could very easily give this monitor a 10 out of 10.
