    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....

    Performance

    Now we will run the 192T through several intense display tests and see how it holds up. To ghost or not to ghost, that is the first question. The first person shooter Tactical Operations was used to test out whether or not the 192T ghosted during game play. Here is your answer...

    While I was playing the game I did not see any ghosting what-so-ever. I even asked two friends of mine if they noticed any ghosting while I was playing and they agreed that there was zero ghosting occurring. I decided to take a picture while they were playing to see if the camera could pick up on something that we could not and, as you can see, it did. When I looked at the pictures I honestly could not believe that they looked the way they did because I hadn't see any such ghosting when I was playing. So technically yes, there is ghosting. Will you notice it? Highly unlikely.

    Since I am "reviewing" the monitor's performance I feel that the in-game ghosting test was a relevant test to add to the review of the 192T. However, as stated earlier, the 192T is aimed towards the business, SOHO and high-end graphics users. That means people that deal with designing high quality graphics or movies. Are movies as demanding as a first person shooter? No because movies run at 24-30 frames per second while most games run at well over 60 frames per second. With that said, if you use the 192T for "high-end" purposes (designing movies, graphics, ect..) you really don't have to worry about ghosting.

    The next test will use the Display Mate program to run numerous display tests on the 192T. The below images are an example of some of the display tests...

    This test definitely applies to the targeted market of high-end users because of the high demand images required to be displayed. The Display Mate program not only tests black and white images but also many colored gradient images as well. Dispite the program's best efforts, the 192T passed all of the tests with ease. I might also add that I have read a few other reviews of the 192T saying that they had a problem with dead pixels but I encountered zero dead pixels during testing.


    (Yes that is a blackjack table and no it's not for real money)

    The last thing that I wanted to "test out" was the viewing angel of the 192T. Obviously to do this I simply positioned myself at extreme angles to the monitor and took a picture of what I saw. The viewing angle is 170 for both horizontal and vertical positions from the screen. As you can tell, you can still very much see the objects on the screen at high angles. The only change in display that occurs as you angle yourself from the screen is the brightness and contrast are only slightly degraded.
