900IFT 19" DynaFlat Monitor
With a price tag of $520 CDN ($350 US), the Samsung
SyncMaster 900IFT is not expensive, but it's not
cheap for a 19" CRT either.
The first thing I noticed about the monitor was the
size, with dimensions of 468x492x483.2 mm, the 900IFT isn't a small monitor and I had
to rearrange the test bench a bit so the 900IFT would fit. Built using Samsung's
DynaFlat technology, the actual dot mask is curved both on the horizontal
and vertical axis. On the IFT series of monitors this curvature is very
slight and almost unnoticeable but it is there, however it's not
as obvious as with Samsung's Syncmaster DF's series of monitors.
It was very nice to see that Samsung kept the bezel
of the monitor clean and free of gimmicks unlike some of it's competitors. The
controls were easily accessible from the from bezel just under the screen and
the menu's are easy to use and pretty much self explanatory. The maximum
resolution of the 900IFT is 1600x1200 with a refresh rate of 75 Hz which is very
respectable for a 19" monitor.
