REVIEW: Samsung 275T Part 2
The scope of supply includes a printed multilingual installation guide, a DVI-D cable, a D-Sub cable, a power cable and a driver CD. Although the Samsung 275T is equipped with an integrated USB hub, no USB cable is included in the scope of supply.
The driver CD is also limited to the most necessary components: the disc contains a manual in PDF format and the monitor driver. No software for setting up and calibrating the monitor is included.
The entire cover is made from matte black plastic, like that of the monitor’s smaller brother, the Samsung 245B and seems stable and robust like its predecessor. However, the monitor does make slight cracking noises when touched firmly or in differences in temperature–e.g. when the monitor is cooling down after being switched off.
The shape matches the function -the Samsung SyncMaster 275T is simple but elegant and not as clumsy as some competing models.
The mechanics on the Samsung 275T function smoothly and are easy to use. Although the LCD does not offer a pivot function, it is height adjustable, can be tilted and features a rotating base. The distance between the bottom edge of the monitor the desk surface is 8 cm when the monitor is in its lowest position.
When the monitor is in its highest position, the distance is 15 cm; a little more downward scope would not have harmed the monitor, but most users should still be able to find the right height. With its maximum tilting angle of 26 degrees, the LCD can be adjusted to suit nearly every sitting position.
The Samsung 275T is height-adjustable, tiltable and rotatable.
The back of the Samsung 275T is simple and elegant like the front. The VESA compatible (200x100) fixtures for alternative mounts are located here. The monitor does not feature a cable routing solution.
Users wishing to save power by separating their monitors from the mains can do this using a power switch located beside the LCD’s power input. Otherwise, the user can expect pleasantly low power consumption rates of 0.7 watts in standby mode and 0.5 watts in soft off mode.
