Conclusions on the 570V TFT

The 570V TFT is an affordable option as flat panel displays go - sitting at about $800CDN. While power saving points brought about by the 25W power usage will not have a big impact for most of us, it may something business users should take note of.

With a visible display area of 9" by 12" this monitor gives the current crop of 17" CRT monitors a run for their money (not on price mind you) in terms of screen real estate. The 250:1 contrast rating translates into dark blacks and bright whites, while the 200cd/m2 equates to a bright and vibrant display on par with, or superior to most CRT displays (we faced it off against an ADI, and an ACER). Based on specs alone this display offers some very attractive visual cues. On the downside the base is rather plain and doesn't support any vertical height adjustments, USB ports or any extra, special features. Other models of base do (the instruction manual notes 5 models) which is a saving factor.

The OSD is easy to operate, and the automatic adjustment key on the front bezel is even easier to use. Anyone comfortable with working on a 1024x768 resolution screen will make a smooth transformation into TFT displays of this type. For those of you more comfortable with larger screen texts brought about by 800x600 resolution settings, the "smaller words" make take some time getting used to.

All in all the SyncMaster 570V is a very economically priced TFT display based on an analog video connection (it will work with your existing legacy video card unlike DVI-D video adapters). If you can afford a TFT display I wouldn't hesitate considering this model.
