Sitting in my chair looking around for more things to review, when suddenly I thought I haven't reviewed my monitor!
The samsung p2370 syncmaster is an ok screen, they don't make them anymore, and even if you could find one for sale somewhere I wouldn't recommend tracking one down.
it looks pretty decent, if a little cheap
the price was pretty good
connectivity- only has one dvi input
seriously terrible build quality, don't try and adjust the stand, don't touch it, and don't move it because it will creak horribly and break extremely easily
the screen is also really bad- it's a tn panel so has all the usual tn issues such as colour shift, whites look really terrible on the screen too, like there's no contrast at all when black text is on a white background which makes it hard to use for a long time. The onscreen OSD is so unintuitive that I can't be bothered to adjust the display, I just avoid using the computer attached to this monitor.
overall this is quite a poor quality display, and as the display is so important to the enjoyment of your computer I highly recommend getting something a little better- the prices of monitors is so low now that it's foolish to get something cheap.
Not recommended for anything other than style (and I don't think it looks that good either!)
AS you can probably tell from the title, this monitor is amazing. With a full 1080p Res and 2ms response time you can not fault this beautiful piece of, what can only be described as: perfection.
I picked my monitor up for.. 2 hours, just kidding, I got my monitor for a little over £120 from overclockers.co.uk and received it the next day. At first i was not expecting much as I had not owned a Samsung monitor before, and i was eager to set it up as soon as i saw the box.
The monitor comes with a few cables, It has:
- Dvi -> Dvi Cable
- AC Power Cable
- VGA -> DVI Cable
Meaning that whatever your graphics card, you will have no issues connecting to the monitor. The monitor itself connects via a DVI port positioned on the back of the monitor.
The monitor is plug-and-play meaning that you do not have to go through the awkward process of installing drivers. And you can be using your full HD monitor in minutes! The quality is amazing, Videos look stunning and so do games!
The monitor itself (not what is displayed on it) is also very stylish with a black body, and a clear outline (and clear stand) This will match almost any room as it is very modern looking. The only downside i have found, and it isn't even much of a downside, is that you can't rotate the screen without moving the base. A very small let down in my eyes.
So here it is, a one word summary of what i personaly think of this monitor: Perfect
