If you spend a lot of time staring at your computer screen, you probably know how important a great monitor is. A monitor that produces sharp colors, creates clear pictures, and doesn’t cause eye-strain is well worth any price.
This is something that Apple knows very well, which is why most Apple desktops come with excellent monitors. If you don’t have the cash to spend on an Apple desktop (let’s face it, these machines don’t come cheap), you can still outfit your existing desktop with an excellent monitor.
One monitor that has been grabbing lots of attention lately is the Samsung SyncMaster. The SyncMaster retails for around $800, which may seem like a lot of money, but this monitor is worth the price if you value your eyesight. In addition to being easy on the eyes, the SyncMaster is also one of the best monitors out there – for good reason.
The SyncMaster comes with a full-HD resolution (2,560 X 1,440 pixels) and a 27-inch monitor making it the perfect monitor for graphic artists. If you aren’t in the graphic arts game, this monitor will still prove to be better than all the rest. With this kind of resolution and a screen that’s this clear, seeing anything from small type to the smallest graphic on your screen will be simple and painless.
Samsung claims that this monitor is brighter than all the rest without causing a surge in your electricity bill. If you are looking for a monitor that’s easy to stare at all day long, provides excellent brightness and color, and comes with a nice screen size, the SyncMaster is worth looking into – even if it does come with a very high price tag.
Style and Appearance
The look of a monitor is important. After all, the monitor you choose will grace your desk for years to come. Samsung is no stranger to stylish devices and monitors, and the SyncMaster is no exception to this rule. Without being bulky, the SyncMaster has everything that you want it to have. You’ll also find that the casing wrapped around this monitor is the definition of sleek.
As with any other monitor (or device of any kind) the SyncMaster does have a couple of drawbacks. However, I should point out that these drawbacks are minor, and missing out on what the SyncMaster has to offer due to a few simple drawbacks is not a good idea. That said, here’s what you need to be aware of while comparing the SyncMaster to other monitors in its class.
The one thing that Samsung didn’t consider when creating the SyncMaster was HDMI. Since most other monitors that can be compared to the SyncMaster do include HDMI, this might be a breaking point for some people. Again, it’s not a huge drawback, but it’s something that Samsung might have improved upon. Otherwise, the SyncMaster is an excellent monitor option for anyone looking to brighten up a workspace.
The Samsung SyncMaster is currently available through certain retailers. You can find out more about this monitor by looking at the Samsung website, though Samsung doesn’t offer an option to buy the monitor directly through the site. You can, however, look for a list of authorized retailers in your area by using the Samsung site.
