Samsung SyncMaster F2380 23-inch 16:9 Widescreen LCD Review

Samsung SyncMaster F2380 23-inch 16:9 Widescreen LCD Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The use of C-PVA technology means the SyncMaster F2380 can achieve 178° horizontal and 178° vertical viewing angles, so colours won't shift or dim if you move your head relative to the position of the monitor.

A Very Wide Widescreen LCD

The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 has an all-black design which blends into both home and office environments nicely. The matte black bezel that frames the 23" LCD screen is just 15mm wide, with a few badges on the outside and a white status LED near the bottom control panel.

The control buttons are located right below the "Samsung" badge, where the corresponding labels are lit up by a white LED light. The control panel consists of - Menu, MagicBright (down), Brightness (up), Source select, Auto adjustment and Power. Display mode (Magic Bright) has preset brightness/contrast settings for standard, text, internet, sport, gaming, dynamic and custom modes. From our tests with the SyncMaster F2380 monitor, it's best to leave the monitor on Sport mode, or adjust the Custom setting to your liking.

The stand that supports the SyncMaster F2380 is highly adjustable, with 130mm height adjustment, 15° upwards tilt, 90° clockwise pivot swiveling and 90° horizontal swiveling.

The base comes off easily for storage, and the neck is removable so you can mount the SyncMaster F2380 to an LCD armature or flush to a wall. The mounting holes are VESA-compliant at 100x100mm and 200x100mm.

The Samsung F2380 has an excellent 178° vertical viewing angle, and can be height adjusted by 13cm to keep it at a comfortable eye level.

The SyncMaster F2380's screen can also be tilted upwards by about 15°, so even if the display is below eye level it can be adjusted to a comfortable viewing angle.

Software and image quality tests are up next.
