Over bij beddoestech.com hebben ze de Samsung SyncMaster 900SL monitor eens getest. Deze 19 incher heeft dankzij z'n short length feature een nog kortere kont dan sommige 15" modellen. De CRT buis weet verder een zeer aardig beeldje neer te zetten op 1280x1024 @ 85Hz. Een aanbevolen monitor als je voor weinig knaken toch veel werkruimte wilt:
This monitor is one of the more cheaper monitors on the market for its size, as such it does falter a little bit in some of its display. Under windows i run the monitor at 1280x1024 at 85Hz, any higher and i find that the image is becomming fuzzy, even at this resolution there is some fuzziness, however not enough to worry me. The monitor also does not have a uniform brightness i have noticed that the left side of the screen is a shade greyer then then the right, the monitor also does not drawn straight lines under windows perfectly straight, this is more noticeable on a 19" then with a 15 or even 17" but it is due to the curvature of the glass.
Using the included colourific software makes a big difference i have found. Not being the most artistic creative or colourful person around, i dont know my colours to well, i just know what looks good, so using this software really did help me tweak the image to just the way a like it, vibrant colours but not overally bright.
Lets get to what really matters however, performance in games. I have used this monitor in quake 3, Unreal Torunament, Counter Strike, Midtown Madness and a few others and it truly does give a beautiful picture. Highly useable for gaming, sexy large images even though my TNT2 Ultra can only realistically do 1024x768 in quake 3 when i pump it up to 1280x1024 it certainly rocks although i get around 19fps. Counter-Strike is also great on this monitor, the opposition are much easier to snipe on a bigger screen.
