    This review is from: Samsung P2570HD 24.6-Inch Full 1080p HDTV LCD Monitor – Black Rose (Personal Computers)

    UPDATE; July 2010: It has been nine months since I have been using the monitor and thought it was time for an update. The monitor has been used heavily; an average of 18 hours per day for work and recreation. Several things have changed; the computer that drives the display was substituted for a new one running at 64 bits with the new Intel I-5 (3.2 GHz) processor. The new graphic cards is a NVIDIA GT 260 with 1.8 GBs of memory and the RAM installed in the computer is 8GBs. The VGA cable was substituted for a DVI and said changes result in a total Windows Experience Index; WEI of 5.9. The limiting factor for such a relatively low number is the HDD since the video card WEI is 7.1. The resolution that the monitor currently has is 1370 x 768 (which is the optimum for my needs of side by side screens). The SyncMaster has not had any problems in spite of such heavy use and it is regularly enjoyed as a second TV. The current price for this device on Amazon is $271.00.

    The comments received on the original review have been greatly appreciated and hope that this & other reviews continue being useful to all consumers.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW: Samsung’s SyncMaster P2570HD offers plenty of inputs, a descent HD-TV monitor, basic speakers, and a remote control with all necessary features. Also, great style and very good performance are included in a panel less than 2″ deep. But, no VGA cable included, no height or tilt adjustment and Samsung’s website does not have an updated driver for Windows 7. Best for those of us that need (or want) a new big screen monitor that might be also be used as a TV.

    It is an LCD Display with 24.6 diagonal inches of screen and I paid $339.00 On Line. After searching on the Internet for reviews on the new Samsung’s (not many found), decided on giving a try to this new product. Has multiple inputs; from VGA to HDMI that and an integrated TV tuner, speakers and even the power supply (connects directly to an outlet) in a fairly light device.

    Is an attractive device with lots of shine, transparent surfaces and a matte screen. The base is a glossy black oval with hues of red on the perimeter. A transparent glass bluish neck anchors the monitor [pic1]. The aspect ratio is 16:9 which makes it very modern looking when compared to the Apple products. The borders of the screen have a 5/16″ clear area [pic4] and on the rear, all input jacks are recessed about one inch and face backwards, not downwards like other monitors/TVs [pic6]. This can make hard flush wall mounting the device. Two small speakers face downward and there is an 18″ area on the rear upper part for heat dissipation (remember that the power supply is inside the device).

    I tested the monitor with a 2002 Dell XPS running Windows 7 [pic3]. Tried to get an updated driver for the new OS but none yet available. Refresh rate was awesome, colors were bright, blacks were not seen and no distortion or bleeding of the screen was noted. In order to “stress” the video card to its limits (plus the shared RAM), was able to work with eight screens at the same time and even play a DVD trough the WMP-11 and at the same time, play that same movie stored on an External HDD trough VLC [pic5]; no problems!

    Then decided to customize the settings for the display and used the remote control for this (instead of the touch sensing buttons on the lower R front area). The Remote [pic5] is quite intuitive and settings were very easy to adjust for optimum viewing. Brightness and contrast had to be decreased to 67% compared with the factory settings which were 80% for both. Something unexpected, when switching from a regular 17 inch LCD monitor to this big screen, the mouse needs more area to properly work. Otherwise, adjustments need to be made for said device but I’ll try that later.

    After one month of using my Samsung P2570HD solely as a Computer Monitor, I connected it to the cable TV and DVP player to evaluate its performance. Because neither the DVR nor DVD player had more than one HDMI outputs, the comparison needed to be done by stages. The cable from my Cable TV provider [not the DVR/descrambler] was directly connected to the TV input of the Samsung and auto scan was programmed [pic7]. Then, searched for a TV transmission in High Definition [pic9].

    Connected the Philips DVD player to the Samsung and to my 40″ Sony Bravia LCD. First trough Composite [pic3] and later trough HDMI [pic 10]. Compared picture quality and trough the “custom” setting, tried to make the image of the Samsung as close as possible to the Bravia [pic 11]. The screen adjustments were made using a specific scene from Zefirelli’s Traviatta because the only illumination for Violetta’s party scene is by candles. On the second configuration [pic12] adjustments were not necessary since the Samsung had been connected through its HDMI input.

    This review is from: Samsung P2570HD 24.6-Inch Full 1080p HDTV LCD Monitor – Black Rose (Personal Computers)

    I am writing from a consumer point of view, who uses this unit as a tv and a monitor in a small apartment. I am a law school student who appreciates good electronics and is fairly tech-savvy, but am in no way a computer or visual professional. I have written it to hopefully address anything you might run across, and make up your mind on this unit.

    FIRST a note to anyone trying to use this as a monitor via the HDMI input, this tv is set up for that connection to be used as a ‘tv’ by default, which is why everyone is having issues using the HDMI port as a monitor, it is very easy to fix (but you will lose audio via hdmi, so you’ll have to plug in from the headphone jack). I got this from a review on newegg, and it works perfectly.

    -Hit the Menu button on your remote
    -Scroll down to Input, Press right.
    -Scroll down to Edit Name, Hit Enter.
    -Scroll down to HDMI, Hit Enter.
    -Scroll down to DVI PC, Hit Enter.

    I guess it is a firmware issue, but again, easily correctable, and explains many of the very negative reviews on here regarding image quality as a monitor via HDMI.

    Now, onto the review. This thing is incredibly pleasing aesthetically. The touch of red is just nuanced enough to be perfect, and really gives it a nice touch. The bezel itself is fairly narrow (TV standards), although I guess you could consider it thick for a stand alone monitor. It is bright glossy black with the touch of red inlaid along the outside, with a very narrow clear frame that bring the unit together. The actual speakers are invisible, and if one saw this on a desk, they would probably be surprised to hear the sound coming out. Complementing the touch of red are the on-unit controls, which are normally invisible, but light up when you touch the panel, again red to match the darker accents on the monitor itself. The base is of a fairly decent size and is mostly black, with the same hint of red, while the neck to the monitor is clear plastic, which means it usually turns the color of whatever might be behind it.

    As far as utility and movement goes, there appears to be considerable confusion: the unit both swivels, and tilts, albeit with caveats. Most other tvs that I have seen, including my parents 32″ 2007 samsung turn from side to side along the neck, e.g., it appears that the tv, when swiveled, is facing off center. This unit has a much better setup, the base and the monitor swivel around an internal, smaller unit, so it appears that the entire monitor is turning along the surface. This is of course, not the case. This works much better than my parents tv and other setups I have seen, because the range of motion is very limited if just the neck is turning, otherwise it becomes unstable or untenable for it to turn further, therefore your range of motion is very limited. Because on this unit, the base itself rotates around a center unit, it can be turned to face completely backwards if necessary, a pretty neat trick, all while looking like it is facing that particular direction. You will know when it has reached the limit of its range, because it will stop turning. The only issue this might cause, if you are turning the monitor on a regular basis, is that you cannot have it resting on a cloth that will `catch’ on the bottom of the rotating base, because it will drag it in-tandem with the rotation of the monitor. I understand how people get confused, I was trying to turn the lcd, like my parents unit, while keeping the base motionless, and it’s not possible, but again, the way it does swivel is quite superior.

    Now, onto the tilt. It tilts, but only up from a flat horizontal plane, it cannot be tilted down past where it would be even with the desk underneath it. Not a problem for me, but might be for someone who is sticking it on a shelf on their desk, above their viewpoint. Also, in comparison to some other monitors, it does not have any built in height adjustment. Not an issue if you are using it at a standard desk (it has a fairly long ‘neck’), but something to note.

    As far as performance from a , the p2570hd is incredible for the price point. I will address using it as a monitor first. Again most negative reviews involving image quality as a monitor had to do with the HDMI issue, and I admit when you plug in a standard HDMI from a computer, (either hdmi-hdmi or dvi-hdmi), the image looks atrocious, it doesn’t scale right, and is very blurry and pixelated. For whatever reason, you have to do the fix outlined above. Then, like magic, it comes into perfect and absolutely gorgeous focus. It looks stunning, pictures are great, everything looks right, without any adjustments (it is very bright however, might have to turn that down a touch or two.) As a monitor, it also does an incredible job via VGA. If you are worried about your computer not being able to handle it, my parents’ older 2007 dell laptop with just…

    CraigT (VA USA) –

    This review is from: Samsung P2570HD 24.6-Inch Full 1080p HDTV LCD Monitor – Black Rose (Personal Computers)

    Bought this to replace an HP 22″ that did 1680×1050. I wanted a TV for the kids play room that would work as a computer monitor. I found this at a local wharehouse type members only store for 349 and thought I’d try it even though I usually wait for the reviews to come out. I am very happy with the computer monitor function and the HDMI input allows me to use an upconverting dvd player without having to run additional audio cables as I have no handy way of sharing the PC audio with the DVD player. I have only used it for over the air HDTV not via cable, so I can’t speak to that, but it functions very well with over the air HDTV. I did notice that it has an USB service port, so anything that may come up can be addressed by putting new firmware on it hopefully. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and can only assume that the store priced it as a P2570 versus the P2570HD. It seems very cheap considering how expensive LCD 26″ TVs still are (same price as this) and that it really looks great as a monitor for the PC. Slight light bleed from top and bottom when all black screen is being displayed, but not too bad. There is a remote for adjusting everything to taste and the on off button is more of a sensor where you barely touch over the indicator and it goes on or off. I am used to blue indicators and this has red ones, but that’s no big deal. Great product so far. Great deal.
