Samsung SyncMaster 174v Review - The SymcMaster's Performance
(Page 4 of 5 )
There are no benchmarks to gauge the performance of a monitor like there are for video cards or processors. The best test, is simply constant everyday use, for a solid period of time. I've been using the SyncMaster 174v since September, and I have not had a single gripe or complaint about its display quality. As a student, programmer, web designer, and gamer, I've run a very vast array of applications with this display and been very content.
Upon first using the 174v, there were no immediate problems: dead pixels, incorrect display, lack of vibrant color, or flickering issues. And today, after nearly two full months of usage, I am confident in saying this monitor is near perfect. The ONLY problem is an almost unnoticeable outline of pixels around the edge of the display that are brighter than pixels everywhere else. The result is a thin border of greater light around the screen, most noticeable when black is displayed. Many LCDs experience this problem however, and it is nothing RMAable.
I play Counter-Strike competitively, and the refresh time of the display that anti-LCD proponents love to gripe about has not been an issue at all. There is absolutely no "lag," or "shadowing" when objects are in motion. And the colors are incredible! I'll let these picture of NFS: Underground speak for themselves.
