Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Samsung Syncmaster 173P+ 17inch LCD Display Review  - Samsung Syncmaster 173P+ 17inch LCD Display Review
Thu, October 27 2005 | 8:15PM | PermaLink Feedback?
It is pretty clear by looking at the three separate colour test patterns that issues with ghosting are reduced on the 8ms (*gray-to-gray) Samsung 173P+ LCD monitor. The difference varies between 1-2 less visible ghosting blocks on the 173P+, which is a little bit less than what we had anticipated before the test was conducted against the 25ms panels. Of course, we're focusing on just the following edge of the test pattern, the reduction also lessens the visual effect on the leading edge.

The compact little 17" screen of the Samsung Syncmaster 173P+ boasts a native resolution of 1280x1024 pixels. Its industry standard dot pitch of 0.264mm makes for a crisper image from the a-si TFT/PVA panel than many 19" LCDs can muster. The Samsung 173P+ does retail a bit higher than the average 17" LCD will, priced about $570USD, but it does offer up a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and brightness value of 270 cd/m2. Viewing angles on the Samsung 173P+ break the barrier at 178 degrees horizontal/vertical. The unit accepts both 15-pin Analog and DVI digital video connections, though DVI is naturally the preferred standard. Power draw is listed at 40 Watts while in use, less than 2 Watts in standby. A 75mm VESA mounting plate is included in the box along with wall mounting hardware and all the necessary cables to run the display.
