Samsung Syncmaster 192T LCD Monitor Review Author:Jakester Date Posted: August 26th, 2003
Bottom Line: If you need a large LCD monitor with excellent picture quality then the Samsung Syncmaster 192T could be just what your looking for. Is it good value for money and how well does it perform, read on to find out in our official review....
The 192T is targeted towards business, SOHO and high-end graphics users. It
has an estimated street price of $829 which will probably drop once the monitor
becomes more widely available. It also uses Samsung's proprietary PVA
(Patterned Vertical Alignment) panel, the latest technological advancement in
liquid crystal cell structure. The contrast ratio of the 192T is extremely high
at 750:1 allowing for a vast range of contrasts. As normal, if you're worried
about the monitor burning out because of such high display intensities, Samsung
backs their monitor by a solid 3-year Parts/Labor/Backlight warranty. Included
with the 192T is a mail-in form that you fill out and send in for an extended 3
months of warranty.

Magic Bright™ - MagicBright™ is a new feature that
provides you with the optimal viewing environment depending on the contents of
the image you are watching. There are three different modes of brightness
available: text, internet, and entertain. Each mode has its own
pre-configured brightness value. You can also select "User Adjusted" mode for a
personalized level of brightness and contrast.
Dual Signal Inputs- The 192T comes with both Analog RGB and DVI Digital
Link input ports.
HDTV capabilities -With the addition of an HDTV card, this monitor can
receive HDTV broadcasting.
Dual Hinge System - The two-hinge system allows the monitor to be folded freely
or to be wall mounted. See demo below...

Wall or Ceiling Mounting Abilities - Since it comes with a mounting
bracket the SyncMaster is able to mount easily on the wall at a total depth of
only 2” flush to the wall or on an adjustable arm. If you really wanted you
could even mount it on the ceiling for some bedtime web surfing.
Built-in Base Speakers -The base comes equipped with 2 1.5W speakers,
volume control and input for audio headphones. The performance of the base
speakers isn't anything special, but they do work decently for being built-in
The exact same features found on the 192T were also found on the
SyncMaster 172W and I have zero complaints about them. All of the features
only add to the monitor as a whole.
