191T LCD Monitor
all know that LCD monitors are lighter, take less desk space, consume less
energy, and are less exhausting for the eye than CRT monitors. We also know
that, for these reasons, they are slowly, but indubitably eating up the

in these few last months, Samsung has literately showered the market with
quite a lot of LCD monitors. From small budgets to High Quality devices,
they have done it all. Therefore, in connection with this, a few months
ago, we received one of their latest products, the 191T.
will be the subject of this review as we check out its features and specifications.
The 191T is a High Quality
monitor. In fact, to make it obvious it features Samsung’s “standard” rounded
off base and a 0.7 inches bezel. To make this short and sweet, even a quick
glance towards the 191T’s direction makes you drool (this is no joke; it
actually happened quite a few times when different friends of mine saw it
for the first, second, third, and forth time).
other differences that distinguish this monitor from the rest of them are
its viewable size and pixel pitch. The 191T offers 19” of pure delightful
display and amazing (for an LCD) 0.294 mm H/V pitch. Frankly, other screens
offer slightly better dot pitch, but it doesn’t make that much of a difference
because everything just looks way better on the 19 inches monitor.
would also like to point out the type of keys used for the LCD panel controls
of the 191T. Other monitors such as the 171P use digital keys whereas the
191T exploits regular, but slim, buttons. However, that was probably due
to the 191T’s slim 0.7” bezel.
going on to other features, I would really like to point out another distinction:
this 19” monitor weighs only 13.0 lbs. Yes, readers, this monitor weighs
less (a bit weird, but true) than most 17” inches LCD monitors. I guess
sometimes we can’t rely on common sense.
let’s go on with the rest on its specifications. Let’s start with the brightness:
a dazzling 250 cd/m2. Trust me, that’s bright, but you get used
to it! As for the contrast ratio, it is of 500:1. The higher the ratio,
the better colors will look in applications such as Photoshop.
which are worth mentioning are the 191T’s viewing angle and the maximum
resolution. This screen beneficiate of a 170°/170° (H/V) angle and a 1280
x 1024 @ 75 Hz max resolution. The resolution is quite great for a LCD because
there are still some out on the market that only go up to 1024 x 768 which
is, for me, not small enough.
addition to that, this monitor has both analog (female 15-Pin D-sub) and
digital (female DVI-D) interfaces. This is great because digital is the
future in graphics, but most people still have analog interface. It also
use pivot technology (portrait landscape) due to its swivel base.
the 191T comes in silver or black.
191T is a more than great monitor. In fact, I think that the 191T is just
out of many LCDs’ league. It just looks nicer and everything displayed on
it also looks prettier. As I mentioned before, it’s real drooling material.
Nevertheless, this all comes with greater costs: a price of 1250$ USD.
this screen is quite excellent with its good brightness level, contrast
ratio, viewing angle, analog/digital interfaces, and pivot technology. Therefore,
I think Samsung has done another great job with their LCDs.
the end, after working with this monitor, I would highly recommend it to
anyone who is interested in high quality displays. I truly think that the
191T is a great purchase.
