Samsung Syncmaster 181T 18.1 inch TFT LCD Display

Samsung Syncmaster 181T 18.1 inch TFT LCD Display - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Syncmaster 181T in its black and silver housing is something quite different for an LCD, and much better looking than most.

Analog Standard, USB Hub & New OSD Menu

Analog Connection DVI Connection



Analog video connections are the type of VGA interface most commonly in use at the moment but the 181T offers support for both Analog and Digital connections.

The basic differences between an analog display adapter and a DVI (digital) display adapter is that with the blue analog cable, the image is transmitted to your monitor as an analog signal.

On the DVI cable, the images arrives at the display as a digital stream of one's and zero's. When these display signals are sent to an LCD display via an analog cable, the picture must be translated to a digitally signal before it can be processed and shown.

On the other hand, if you happen to have a digital DVI output on your video card, the digital signals are simply sent right to the display to be shown on the screen. Is there a difference between the two ways of connecting to a LCD display? Well yes an no. On the visual level there are not that many user perceivable differences in display quality that you will notice.

New OSD Menu:

Samsung are using a nice OSD on the 181T and it is easy to navigate. While this menu not quite as lush as that of the 181MP series (which are truly well done), they are much better than your average monitor has. Heck, you even have the option of going with half-tone version of the blue, white and orange display if you like.

To adjust the display it is usually much easier to simply push that all-in-one "Auto Adjust" button on the front panel. Do that and about 5 seconds later the 181T will be set perfectly (if connected via an analog cable).
