Samsung 150MP LCD Display-TV Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The historic television and the cutting edge flat screen LCD display were married to form.... the TeleMonitor... or maybe the Monivision...

Evaluation Notes & Conclusion

We used the monitor test program to give the 150MP's display a thorough going-over. The LCD panel proved itself to be very vibrant in terms of colour replication, and naturally had a very sharp image resolution at 1024x768. The LCD panel used in the 150MP is not as of high a quality as the one used in the 170MP in one regard, but better in two others - so it is a bit of a toss up. The LCD panel is rated for viewing angles of 70/70/60/60. That means if you looked at the display from anywhere up to a 60 degrees on either the left or right side the display would be basically as clear as it it looking at it head on. Go past that point and the display colours will begin to loose their brilliance (imagine a notebook screen from the side - difficult to see).

Brightness sits high at 200cd/m2. This is slightly above the norm, and higher than that of the 170MP model. To this day we still have not been able to tell the difference between TFT panels sporting 200, 250 even 150cd/m2 luminance ratings. The contrast rating for the 150MP is excellent at 300:1. Typically 300:1 is on the high end of the scale, and 150:1 is on the low end. Thus the 150MP has a very, very good contrast rating. Finally the dot pitch of 0.297mm assures this display offers a very good pixel size that produces a fairly clean image without any distracting "griding" effects.


Having just taken a quick look around the web to see what the 150MP is retailing for, I would have to say that this display is must for anyone to consider. With a price hovering around $700-1000 USD the 150MP offers so many features for a 15" LCD TFT display that you would almost be crazy to look elsewhere. When we first hear of flat panel displays with TV-tuners built in we thought was a nice feature, but nothing special. After giving the 150MP a thorough going over we were quite impressed with both its looks and sheer usefulness. While I have a few irks with the remote for this and the 17" model, Samsung have managed to create a very cool product all around.
