Samsung SyncMaster 192T

The Good Unique and stylish design; analog and digital inputs; included wall-mount bracket.

The Bad More expensive than other 19-inch LCDs; some adjustability limitations; price tag warrants much higher image quality.

The Bottom Line The Samsung SyncMaster 192T looks cool, but you can get a higher-quality, more adjustable 19-inch LCD for a lot less money.

Samsung SyncMaster 192T

The Samsung's SyncMaster 192T definitely wins style points for its silver bezel and unique dual-hinge design. But for such a high-priced display, we'd expect top-notch image quality and design--and we didn't get it.

The SyncMaster 192T's unusual neck design sets it apart--sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. The neck's dual hinges, one where it attaches to the base and another where it attaches to the screen, let you raise, lower, and tilt the display easily, but you cannot swivel it or rotate between Portrait and Landscape modes. Office users who require these features should consider the ViewSonic VP191b or the HP L1925 instead.

For wall-mounting, the SyncMaster 192T's neck folds into the base; Samsung includes a bracket for hanging the flattened display. One caveat: A latch that holds the display flat for shipping is not meant to do the same for wall-mounting. This issue may be confusing because the latch is undocumented in the user guide.
