Samsung SyncMaster 192T review: Samsung SyncMaster 192T

Blended subtly into the bottom edge of the bezel casing are six sleek buttons for navigating the easy-to-use onscreen menu. One of the buttons, labeled Magic Bright, toggles through a few brightness and contrast presets calibrated for Internet, text, and entertainment use.

The SyncMaster 192T's image quality is decent and does justice to basic productivity applications, such as word processing and writing e-mail. For the price, however, we expected better. CNET Labs found some pixel fusion (where the letters look stuck together) at 6.8-point and smaller text sizes; we also noticed a loss of contrast toward the extremes of black and white. Despite one conspicuous flaw--whites took on a dull yellowish cast--overall, focus was crisp and clear, and colors were reasonably vibrant. The Samsung SyncMaster 192T is backed by a three-year parts and labor warranty.

The SyncMaster 192T is certainly a stylish-looking LCD, but models such as the NEC AccuSync LCD9V or the HP L1925 offer better image quality for lower prices.
