Samsung Syncmaster 152T 15inch TFT LCD Display

The 15" Samsung 152T is an incredibly thin and incredibly cute LCD-TFT display on the precipice of released into North American stores. Europe has had the 152T display for a while now, and it is easy to see why the similarities with the popular F.A. Porsche Design 171P will make this miniature TFT display equally delectable in space sensitive areas.

The display is so thin that it at first appears as though a notebook has mistakenly been left in the carton. The 152T folds up in "Z" fashion into just under 2" of thickness, and with an included adaptor plate, can be mounted to 75mm VESA compatible wall mounts or radial armatures. The LCD panel itself is just 24mm thick, and all wires and power cables are routed through the collapsible stand to waiting rear-mounted jacks. With support for both DVI and Analog video, a very minimalist design and a bright 350 cd/m² display, Samsung make the small 15" screen size seem just fine in the face of larger LCD's.

With most LCD displays in 15" range attacking the value markets with bulbous beige one-piece stands, the 152T is a refreshing change, and one model where the only size you can get is 15". There are no other screen sizes currently available of this particular model.

The collapsible stand makes this one LCD display you could literally fold up and put into a briefcase, weighing in at a mear 2.9kg. The small stature of the display allows it to collapsed to about 30cm in height, or extend up to a height of roughly 35-36cm.

Even the best things are not without their share of pitfalls, and in this case it is the control buttons which are too slim to work easily. A lack of a built-in swivel is a minor point, and not really necessary for something so light. Viewing angles for a Samsung LCD are relatively light, and tend to be more sensitive on the vertical axis than we like for a display capable of tilting from from upright thru 90 degrees back.

With control buttons on the front bezel that are just 2mm thick slivers of plastic the ease of using the 152T is lower than we would have liked. The buttons are long enough for someone with big fingers to use, but unless you press them down firmly dead center, chances are they will not actually register with the underlining switch mechanism always.

That can translate into frustration if when are attempting to navigate through the OSD menus to change a setting - you may be pressing the buttons, but they may not actually register your commands every time.

The icons and text are stenciled onto the silver in grey which has enough contrast for easy viewing in most lighting situations and the power switch is indicated by a small adjacent LED. Next up, we sping the 152T around and surf through those ever important OSD's to see just how capable, and adjustable this little 15" LCD display really is.
