First Impressions

Depending on the type of monitor you have, and the amount of cash you doll out for it looks can either be really important or just a secondary feature. Some monitors make an effort to look as snazy as possible, and others go for the bare minimum of features on the front bezel. The 750s conforms to the latter and has a simple and uncluttered bezel. As always, the little plastic swivel base allows flexibility and custom positioning for the best viewing.

Resolution and picture quality with this monitor is first rate. We increased resolution to the max value of 1024x768 clear and crisp. Next we turned up the brightness and contrast all the way to see what impact this had on picture quality. We've seen some monitors crap-out when the brightness and contrast are maxed out. So much so that the masking behind the glass becomes visible. Obviously the Samsung 750s didn't have these problems - or else we would have chucked it out the bloomin' window! Colour quality and pixel definition remained sharp, and although there are only a few colour temperatures the range is fully adequate. A temperature of about 6500K looked to be the optimal setting as it was not too warm, and not overly cold.

Colour temperature is specified in Kelvins, with 9300K representing the temperature of sunlight. The lower the number, the more blue is displayed on the screen.

The Samsung 750s operates at a conservative number of resolution and frequency settings. However there is sufficient selection for a 17" monitor. Anything above a 1000pix would make the screen overly difficult to read.

A CRT monitor refreshes the display many times per second. The vertical frequency is the defining value as it refers to the frequency with which the display is refreshed. Hence it is called the 'Refresh Rate' and measured in Herz. Making a comparison for a moment electricity from the wall cycles at 60Hz for most of the world. If a monitor were set to this refresh rate the screen would visibly flicker. Generally a refresh rate of 75Hz or above is used to reduce noticeable flicker. What this equates to is a higher refresh rate is best, and anything around 80Hz is superb.

The horizontal frequency refers to the rate at which a horizontal line can be scanned from its left to right end. The horizontal frequency is the reciprocal of the horizontal cycle and is in measured in KHz. A higher horizontal frequency is naturally required if there is to a higher vertical frequency.

The various resolutions of the 750s are listed below:

Resolution Freq Hor. Freq Ver. Pixel Clock Standard
640X480 31.5kHz 60Hz 25.2MHz VGA
640x480 37.5kHz 75Hz 31.5MHz VESA
640x480 43.3kHz 85Hz 36MHz VESA
720x400 31.5kHz 70Hz 28MHz VGA
800x600 46.9kHz 75Hz 49.5MHz VESA
800x600 53.7kHz 85Hz 56.3MHz VESA
1024x768 60.0kHz 75Hz 78.8MHz VESA
1024x768 68.8kHz 85Hz 94.5MHz VESA

Controls on the front of the monitor are limited to the standard contrast and brightness buttons along with a few function keys. What kind of onscreen controls does the Samsung 750s have, and how easy are they to adjust?
