Waterfield Designs Muzetto Leather Notebook Satchel Review

Tantus 40 Tantus 40" LCD Television Review

There are also none of the large vertical black address electrodes lines we find on plasma screens; adding yet another notch to the "I'm better than you" category for LCD vs. Plasma. With a brightness value of 500cd/m2 and contrast of 600:1 the Samsung LTM405W features a pixel response rate of about 22ms, ensuring it is suitable for fast action flics without worries of ghosting (we didn't see any during several rounds of DVDs). Generously wide viewing angles of 170 degrees / 170 degrees keep the 16:9 aspect ratio 40" screen looking good from just about any angle. Though, in our tests with the Samsung LTM405W we found the image contrast had a slight tendency to lighten up a little as one moved away from dead center. With the screen at eye level, a distance of about 10' away, the picture is quite simply amazing. The LTM405W display draws 220W of power, with much of that figure being gobbled up by the large backlights. Comparably, Samsung's 42" SPL4225 Plasma display, which we reviewed previously here, draws upwards of 310W of power, or roughly 40% more juice. The difference in power consumption should make environmentalists and penny pinchers happy alike.
