The worst display i've ever had the bad luck to buy; the auto-adjustement issue was so annoyng that it convinced me to replace it with a spare display. Seriously, DON'T buy this display and don't even accept it as a gift unless you suffer from some self-defeating personality disorder, definitely the worst Samsung product i've ever seen as they are also unable to fix the issue.
Hello i bought that lcd a year ago First it was working fine for me but after few Months The Auto Adjustment box is coming COnstantly and then it keeps auto adjusting its self you can check on google every one is having this problem with this LCD
I really don't know when this monitor was bought I found out about it after months of moaning that my monitor is bad and I would like to have the one that was previously in the living room (since it is a wide screen and no one needs a wide screen in the living room, so one could say that the monitor was not living to its potential there poor thing). After months of persuasion my father caved in and said that I can take the wide-screen one and he will just bring a spare one that he bought. I was happy and at the same time confused - spare one? Why did I spend so much time begging if we had a spare one? My father provided me with the logical answer:"You never asked if we had a spare one, and I did not think of it". Cool. It seems a computer monitor is a thing that can be easily misplaced.
So this is a review of our "spare" monitor Samsung Syncmaster 720N.
First thing you notice about this monitor is well the dimension of it, it looks almost square (14.6x7.7x15.2 inch) - if you are used to "normal" monitors you will need some time to get used to the look. I thought it was really ugly to be honest, but as I said you get used to it. I must say that although it is a 17" you do not have the feeling it is. Well at least you save on space. It is remarkably thick and the stand is small (and really stable) so that is another space saver point.
It has 6 buttons on the frame, menu button (where you can quickly and without much trouble adjust the picture, colour,...), magic bright button (for one "click" colour adjustments for different actions you do on computer - you have a custom option, text, internet and entertainment option - selecting any of these will configure the screen to best suite you in the chosen situation - handy) , brightness button, back button (to exit menus and stuff), auto adjust button (quickly auto adjusts screen settings, adjustments is pretty great might I add it does a great job and I usually just press this button to adjust settings) and the last button is the off button.
Picture quality is good. I have tested it watching films, playing games (although with the screen size playing games is not that great) and it always proved to be good, no blurs, black is black.
We use this monitor for a bit more than half a year and it was used before. In this time there have not been any difficulties with it. It is as good as new.
I think it is a decent monitor for an average user, would not recommend it to graphic designers or game players though - only due to the size of it.
Some technical information:
8ms response time
160° horizontal and vertical view angle
1280x1024 maximum resolution
700:1 contrast ration
250 cm/square meter brightness
Samsung produce some brilliant products which as well as containing cutting edge features also look stunning. Unfortunately this doesn't appear under that heading but is still a very good monitor.
As with all monitors you are able to adjust the postion of the screen, which is very uncomplicated, you just move it up or down.
The monitor does have a "MagicBright" button which you can adjust the brightness of the screen for under the headings Custom, Text, Internet and Entertain, which is very useful depending on what you are doing as a quick fix to adjust any glare coming off the monitor.
As with most samsung products that I have or have seen the user manual is not the most user friendly and sometimes it is easier to try a trial and error approach into doing things with it.
The monitor is very easy to set up and is plug and play with any minor adjustments being done either through the computers properties screen (best to check this first as the resolution etc. might be different to what you old monitor could cope with) or using the menu buttons on the monitor.
Overall this is a good monitor for the price range and has a very good screen resolution and picture quality. However, if you are looking for HD quality you would be best to look elsewhere.
