Just another full HD monitor from Samsung in a sleek design, some may think at the sight of the SyncMaster S23A700D LED. And yes, the survey of the specifications is not surprising - the manufacturer uses a TN panel with well-known standard specifications. But the 23-inch display scores with a special feature:
Samsung promises a 100-per cent coverage of the sRGB colour space; the Ultra Clear Panel with anti-reflection coating allows reflection-free plan view. In 3D mode, the so-called 3D hyper real engine controls the interplay of colour, contrast and movement, naturally supported by 120 hertz to address the infrared-connected active shutter glasses. Of course, the 3D capabilities of the display include 3D conversion of classic 2D material.
Gamers appreciate the fast response time of two milliseconds, as well as the 4:3 switch for the correct representation of older titles. (Picture: Samsung)
As a multimedia display, the SyncMaster S23A700D LED uses digital instead of analogue signal inputs: While DVI-D can be applied in the computer field, 3D-capable consoles, various players and set-top boxes can be connected via HDMI 1.4a. When using HDMI, audio is tapped through a 3.5mm jack output.
Despite LED backlight, which raises the dynamic contrast ratio to a mega-level, typical power consumption is at 44 watts, but the eco saving feature with three energy saving modes, as well as an eco sensor, provides for reduction. Auto shut-off extends the lamp life and adds useful power savings. Online retailers have reduced the SyncMaster S23A700DLED dramatically to about 250 Euros lately.
