Evaluation Results & Conclusion

We used the Nokia Monitor test program to give the 150T's display a thorough going-over. The LCD panel proved itself to be very vibrant in terms of colour replication and a pleasure to work with its' crisp display at 1024x768.

Generally speaking it is difficult to find fault with LCD panels, other than loss of pixels, slow response times that visibly blur text, or something major. The 150T exhibited a perfect display, with not a single broken pixel, and a good enough pixel response so there was no visible blurring of text.

The panel controls are laid out in a very easy to use fashion and are accented by the wavy design in the actual bezel. More importantly is the fact that the display can be auto adjusted by the touch of just one button, and settings like display input selected on the fly.

Conclusions

There are so many reasons to make the move to an LCD display, but it is important to remember that in certain situations they are not quite up to par with a good CRT. LCD's by definition are limited to displaying 16.7 million shades of colour. CRT displays on the other hand have a much broader range of colour to play with. The end result is that in situations where there is a very light shading of colour, the LCD can sometimes fall short. This is by no means a significant deficiency, but if you look closely you may notice it.

It is also extremely important to have the screen contrast and brightness settings properly configured if you are a graphic artist. On the flatscreen that I use for my day to day work, the HTML colour "EEEEEE" will either be nonexistant, or very visible depending on the contrast setting. When properly set, I know it should be a very light gray colour, but sometimes the auto configure button adjusts the screen so that this colour is white - and this is not right.

The bottom line I guess, is that for all the benefits of LCD displays (and there are many; space and power saving being the most important) they are not a complete one-button fixes all solution. The Auto adjust buttons are very very useful, but require the user to make some effort to ensure colour settings are accurate and representative of the real world, CRT or LCD.

The Syncmaster 150T is an excellent LCD display, and with the swivel multimedia base offers any user many additional options that a CRT just can't compete with. A low footprint on the desktop, and the option for portrait display add useful flexibility to just about any desk. The lower power requirements help to keep power consumption, and power bills equally thin, and for the image sensitive tech-industry, that grey and silver casing just looks damn fine!
