Samsung Samtron 73V 17" TFT

Samsung have produced the Samtron series of LCD/TFT monitors to do the job its required to, and that is produce a high quality picture. This may be no-frills but that in turn makes it a very nice price. While writing this I was looking round at all the LCD screens in this size and thee wasn't many cheaper than this and certainly none with the reputation of Samsung. The 73V is very slim line and will not take up much of your desk space. making it perfect for your business or in your home.

25ms response time is more than acceptable for anything you wish to do on your screen without getting any ghosting. If you are a gamer or watch a lot of DVD's on your PC then again 25ms is still a good response time. However if you wish to pay more then LCD screens now can go as low as 12ms for supreme clarity even when fast moving action is on your screen. The maximum resolution of the screen is 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is a nice size for a 17" LCD screen. You may think that its sounds like the image will be too small on a 17" screen with a high resolution like that, but LCD screen give you the full viewable area. If it says 17" then you will 17" viewable screen. With CRT monitors you will probably be told its a 17" screen (15" viewable).

Notice about LCD displays

LCD screens are made up of thousands of tiny pixels each of these pixels contains three sub pixels of red green and blue. Giving your TFT screen millions of dots in total. behind each one is a transistor. When one of these transistors fails its stays as a permanent light dark or coloured dot on your screen. Because of the nature of LCD screens it is near impossible to have a screen without a few of these failures.

This is why LCD monitor manufacturers have a tolerance level for this. Should your screen have more transistor failures than the tolerance level the manufacturer will accept the monitor back as a failed device. The number of stuck pixels required before the manufacturer will take the screen back does vary between company to company so we do advise checking on this before making your final decision on an LCD monitor.
