Samsung SyncMaster 152T (MO15PSZS)
This model is a variation of the previous display, but it features built-in speakers (the letter “Z” in the marking tells that) and a DVI input. Otherwise, this display resembles the 152B. Note that the speakers are in the base, not in the display’s bezel. So, the base became thicker, it now has a line input, headphones output and volume control. Of course, as is the case with nearly all multimedia displays, the quality of the speakers is only enough to give sound to Windows and ICQ.
Brightness and contrast of this model were higher than in those of the previous display: we had to set them to 30% and 20%, respectively, for comfortable work.
During the tests, SM 152T quite expectedly showed 32ms response time: 23ms light-up time and 9ms fadeout time.

As the main goal of this review was to measure pixel response time of 7 LCD displays, we list their results in a table for your convenience:

Interestingly enough, all displays (except LG L1511SE) showed higher response time than their manufacturers claimed. However, nearly all the displays exceed their specs just slightly: by 5ms on average. The exception is Samsungs’ SyncMaster 151N: notwithstanding its excellent specifications, this display is now not the best choice.
