OSD and Display Evaluation Notes

Samsung have maintained a very concise OSD menu system for the last few years we've been checking out their displays, and the Syncmaster 192MP continues on here were. Navigation with the circular paddle by the power button the front bezel is straightforward, even for the most novice of user.

Input controls and picture settings here.

Sound options allow you to customize by music, movie, or custom bass and treble settings. If cable TV is hooked up, you can adjust most settings a standard Television has.

Magic bright is another little tool Samsung have added, which adjusts the brightness of the display for specific purposes, like; Internet, Text or Entertainment. The user and entertainment settings are brightest making it ideal for watching a movie.

As with all LCD's capable of analog-input, the best way to configure the screen is use the "Auto Adjust" key and just sit back while the screen configures itself.

PCstats TFT Display Evaluation Criteria:

We evaluate the quality of TFT displays with the help of a program called Nokia Monitor Test. The software application displays a range of colours and test patterns that can help diagnose just about any visual problems or defects a TFT display may contain. The software consists of eleven tests which can be run in steps as adjustments are made in the OSD.

  • Broken Pixels: What we class as a 'broken pixel' can fall under any one of the following circumstances: Pixel always on (any colour), pixel always off, pixel unable to display a shade (red, green, blue, black, white), pixel shown colour gradient. While many manufacturers may consider a few broken pixels acceptable, we believe the high cost of TFT displays should translate into a clear and unblemished image.
  • Pixel Clock: If the number of dot clocks within one horizontal synch are not properly configured the screen will appear to drift or vertical stripes may be generated. This should be correctable by the on screen menu.
  • Phase: If the phase of the display data and dot clock are not correctly tuned the screen can flicker, or text be displayed blurry. For example text may appear dithered, or when looking at a test pattern of a one-pixel black, one-pixel white checkerboard pattern the pattern may be distorted. This should be correctable by the on screen menu.
  • Response Time: We look for any streaking associated with moving a full page of text up or down quickly. Displays with slower refresh rates tend to show some degree of image streaking or text discoloration which can be distracting.
  • Display Test System Configuration:
    Video Card: ATI Radeon 8500
    Operating System: MS WindowsXP
    Display Settings: Color Temp: 6500 Kelvin
    Resolution: 1280x1024 pixels
    Frequency: 60Hz, analog
    Colour: 32 Bit
