A Word About Testing:

In everything we try to be fair, accurate and as objective as possible when it comes to testing hardware. In the past, LCD reviews were done completely subjectively, but we have purchased some equipment that takes some of this out of the equation. Take a look at our LCD Testing methodology over here to get a better idea of how we test LCDs.

We won't spend much time in the menu; it is pretty standard although a little stripped down in terms of contrast, color adjustments and the like. The only real setting in the menu that will help you tweak your screen is the "Brightness" and "Contrast" control. We've also recently updated our Datacolor Spyder software and this gives us even more options for precision testing.

 

Testing Note:

As we jumped into objective testing, we selected every test that we could find in the new Syper 4 Elite HD software. Testing will include Gamut, Tone Respone, Brightness & Contrast, White Point at Different OSD Settings, Screen Uniformity, Color Accuracy and more. We are proving a full PDF of all the test restults. While some of the results may indicate it was a ViewSonic display, please rest assured that all included results were of the Samsung CFG70 24-inch display - not the previous display which shows up as a comparison model.

All the Tests!

Out of th box, the display was ridiculously bright. Notice that we want a target of 120.0cd/m^2 and it outputs a blindly bright 292.2cd/m^2. We calibrated the display prior to all of the tests below.

Super Bright
