Samsung SyncMaster 910N
Unlike the previous model, the SyncMaster 910N is based on a PVA matrix. The snapshot above depicts the senior version of this monitor, with the “SAS” index and a stand that controls the screen height and supports the portrait mode. There also exist SKS (the base like the one of the above-described 913N), SSS (the base can only adjust the tilt of the screen) and STS versions (its round base resembles the one of the SKS model, but allows to change the height of the screen and to pivot the screen into the portrait mode).
The monitor’s pedestal is a fundamental thing – its large dimensions are eye-catching, even though the case is itself thick enough.
The monitor comes with an analog input only; the power adapter is built-in.
The position of the control buttons and the onscreen menu are fully identical to the above-described SyncMaster 913N. The buttons sink down easily; it’s very easy to set up the monitor using the well-designed menu. Like the 913N, the SyncMaster 910N has three MagicBright presets you can switch between with a single button.
By default the brightness and contrast settings of the monitor are set to 80%; by choosing 48% brightness and 60% contrast I made the screen shine with a luminosity of 100nit.
This monitor has the same defect as the above-described 913N: there’s a light edging to the right of vertical lines. This edging is more noticeable on the SyncMaster 910N, but this effect isn’t too strong anyway to hinder your work. Otherwise I have no complaints about the quality of the image: the monitor has excellent viewing angles (that’s natural for a PVA matrix), good uniformity of the backlighting, and lush colors with an accurate reproduction of smooth gradients.
