Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD

Monitors
[ Music ] >>[background music] Hi everyone, this is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD. Now this is a larger version of the P2370HD we reviewed previously. The neck of the display shares its design with the P2370, which is still one of the most aesthetically interesting designs we've seen. The neck is made up of transparent glass but doesn't include the bluish crystals found in the XL2370, which kind of diminishes the aesthetic quality of the display. The screen height isn't adjustable and there isn't a screen rotation or pivot option for portrait mode. The capability that tilt the screen back 25 degrees, is the monitor's only ergonomic feature. Even with such a wide foot stand, the display wobbles and slides considerably. The display connection options include one HTMI port, a DVI port, a VGA port, a component port, a composite port and a coaxial connection for an antenna or cable. Also there's a port for normal audio and a digital audio out port. Above the connection options are four screw holes for mounting the display on the wall visa style, though you have to supply your own mount. Pressing your finger against the bottom right hand corner of the bezel, brings up the hidden onscreen display button array. The buttons disappear after a couple of moments of inactivity. The OSD can be navigated via the OSD array, however we found that OSD is best navigated with the included remote control. The options function very much like a typical HDTV. The picture options include controls for brightness, contrast, sharpness and color temperature. In our dark screen test, clouding or backlight bleed through was noticeable on the top and especially the bottom middle edge of the screen. Also we noticed a slight greenish tint in our color tracking test, suggesting a slight color tracking problem. Movies look good but not as good as what we saw on the XL2370. The P27 has a slightly greenish tint and as a result white looks a lot darker on it than it does on the XL2370. This is something we only noticed, however, in the side by side comparison. As good as movies looked in the entertainment preset, we found that the dynamic contrast preset worked best for movie watching. And gamers, we noticed no signs of input lag or any streaking or ghosting during fast movement. Games look bright without the color problems we saw in movies. It can be found in major online stores for about $430. Not a bad price considering it's basically a 27 inch HDTV. While its movie play back and performance is hampered by a slightly greenish tint and its clouding is very apparent on dark screens, the P2370HD has a solid overall performance that stands up well to some of the best monitors we seen, such as the XL2370 or the larger HP2709M. [background music] Once again this is Eric Franklin and this has been the first look at the Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD. [music]
