(Page 1 of 3 )
Today we'll be reviewing two decent-sized monitors, the Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD and the Lenovo L2060 Wide. Which one appeals to you more will depend in part on your budget and what level of performance you demand from such an important electronic item.
Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD
The Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD is a 27-inch LCD monitor that can also function as a HDTV. Loaded with great looks and performance, it is a solid choice for those in the market for a large monitor. The P2770HD is available for around $450, depending on where you shop, and it is protected by a three-year warranty on parts and labor.
The SyncMaster P2770HD is a full HD 1080p monitor with 1,920x1,080 resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. It also has a built-in HDTV tuner, allowing you to hook it up to a cable box to enjoy television programming.
The monitor churns out solid performance in terms of picture quality. Its black levels are rich and deep. Video games also look good; the colors are bright and pop off the screen. Movie watching is satisfactory, with the only complaint being a slight greenish tint in the picture. The monitor's internal speakers produce a nice audible volume as well in surround sound. Overall, the P2770HD delivers on picture quality and performance.
Not only does the SyncMaster P2770HD look like a HDTV, but it also functions like one as well in terms of its on-screen display, or OSD. The OSD is accessible via the bottom right-hand corner of the monitor's front panel. The OSD controls are actually hidden until you touch the panel itself, at which point the controls appear as glowing red buttons. This feature its not only functional, but adds a little flair to the monitor.
You get various picture preset modes, and there are adjustable settings for the backlight, contrast, brightness, sharpness, color, tint, and more. You can further adjust the color temperature between cool, normal, warm, and custom levels. To help you while adjusting, the monitor provides you with descriptions of each setting as you highlight them. If you happen to make a mistake while adjusting the settings, you can simply reset the picture back to the default settings. In addition to the picture settings, you can also adjust audio settings to get the most out of the monitor's internal speakers.
