Samsung 700 IFT Flat Screen Monitor - Page 1/2

IntroductionSamsung Monitor

Just recently during the PC Fair over here in Malaysia the Samsung Monitor made a debut and has grabbed a lot of attention as many have reliased that there are other high quality monitors available in the market such as the Samsung 700 IFT
. The 700 IFT is from Samsung's Dynaflat range of monitors using the Dynaflat tube. Now it seems that 17" is becoming the standard as many users are going for it and the higher end users aim for the flatscreen type. A lot of manufacturers claim to have flat display screens, but let's separate flat from fiction. The SyncMaster IFT 17" Monitor has the flattest tube in the world. It's perfectly flat. Not an alleged flat screen with a slight curvature that not only distorts the facts, but distorts your picture as well. This is true flatness designed by engineers who believe in true precision.

The moment that you look at this monitor the first thing you would notice is it's size. For a 17" monitor this thing is huge. Probably is the biggest 17" flatscreen monitor available. The measurement for this monitor is 415 x 433.3 x 437.3mm (w x h x d). So for those of you with a small desk you better have your measurements right or else you will find yourself too close to your monitor.

One other thing that is unique about this monitor is it has two inputs connector. It comes with the normal D-SUB mini 15pin and also BNC connectors. Now as far as I've seen only high end workstation such as SGI (Silicon Graphic) machines have this BNC connector for the monitors and higher end monitors such as 19" and above. So what's so great about BNC cables. Well it provides 5 seperate wire for the Red, Green, Blue, Horizontal and Vertical, this provides a sharper image output and you can really see the difference at higher resolution like 1280 x 1024 and above.


Included with Monitor

The manual that came with the monitor is very detailed and explains all the features of the monitor. It also comes with a cdrom, power cord and a 15 pin cable. The cdrom comes with the 700 IFT drivers and also Colorific. Now you must be wondering what is colorific. Colorific software gives you accurate, predictable color matching between your screen and printer by calibrating the colors on the monitor. Colorific constructs a precise description of how your monitor displays color, taking into account different monitor models, monitor control setting, video card adjustments and operating systems.
