(Page 2 of 5 )
As stated before, Samsung is a major LCD manufacturer. The SyncMaster 174v is just one display out of an entire line of analog displays that Samsung makes. More specifically, the SyncMaster 173v/172v/173s/173b/174v...
... are all 17" flat panels, with relatively few differences aside from cabinet color. Performance wise, they are all equivalent. Here is a table of specs for the 174v.

"The Samsung SyncMaster 174v is a 17-inch TFT-LCD monitor delivering a 450:1 contrast ratio, 0.264mm pixel pitch, 1280 x 1024 maximum resolution, scanning frequency of 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical, and horizontal/vertical viewing angle of 1500/1200. It features a slim design with built-in Power Brick."
A few things stand out spec-wise, that are simply signs of Samsung's top-notch quality. A 150/120 viewing angle is very good, and 270 cd/m^3 brightness gives the 174v a slight edge over other LCDs with only 250 cd/m^3. And lastly, weighing in at 10.6 lbs, the 174v is one of the lightest 17" panels out there. Enough with the specs! Lets look at the monitor.
