Staples 17" Samsung TFT Monitor

  The Kestrel 10:50 22 Dec 2004

I am looking to buy a TFT monitor, and saw this monitor on offer for £179 in the newspaper. Does anyone know which model it is, and can anyone recommend this monitor?

Have just returned from visiting Staples. The monitor in question is the Samsung SyncMaster 172V. Has anyone experience opf this monitor and its quality?

Many thanks to both for your infomative links. It certainly seems that the Staples price is a bargain.

I have not seen the model in question, but my Samsung 19" SyncMaster 191t is superb!.

True, I am not a gamer; but I work on photographs a lot and demand excellence.

Samsung is a quality brand in this field and, of course, many other audio/visual products.

click here This can be an alternative at £130. the aria 17" premium TFT at 16ms. Got one for my son and its superb. No shadowing on games like Doom 3 etc. Veru good value and you can read users reviews on the site.

Thanks for your contributions. The Aria certainly has a good spec. and excellent reviews. I also looked at their faster 14 & 12ms models - very impressive and good prices.
