Today, we celebrate our third generation of 19" LCD monitors from Samsung. We first saw samples of the 193P six months ago at Comdex Las Vegas. The SyncMaster 193P caught our eye as something different; it has no interface other than the on/off switch. Windows or Mac software control typical functions of the On Screen Display (OSD).

The 193P also had a lot of other intriguing qualities; portrait display, cable management, pivot/swivel options and a very sleek look.

    ehm... I've found it with Google. :)

    I think the LTM190E4 can be the 193p and next Eizo L768 panel.

    If I can suggest a great source for LCD things is also the free german forum
    (I'm not related to site).

    Miomao, thanks for the link! how did you find that?

    gaurav in this PDF document there are the new Samsung LCD panels.

    Seems the panels to make 203P and 213p are already here.

    12: advertised, yes it does (800:1 contrast ratio on 250 nits). In practicality, no not really.

    Does the 193p have a darker black level than the 213t or are they the same?

    Any chance of getting the Sony S204 in for comparison? It's supposedly based on Fujitsu MVA panel, would be interesting to see how that fares. Also, you seem to be neglecting 213T's bigger brother, 243T, which does 1900x1200. In my experience Samsung T-series have tacky build, whereas the P ones are nicer. I wonder if there'll be a 213P (since 193P and below have cheaper tackier "T" analogues).

    The new sharp 19" 16ms LCD is next :)

    I would say the 213T or the 2001FP would be the best since they can do 1600x1200. I think even adobe's color manager will allow you to correct the color issues if you know enough about curves - so yes the problem is almost always correctable if you have a level of knowledge to know what you are doing.

    Can the blue-green tint be eliminated by raising brightness on the red or with professional calibration? On the color vision spyder page, it looks like the 193P did a whole lot better than the 213t. Out of these three monitors, which one would you say would be best for graphic design? I would think the 2001fp would because it doesn't have the blue-green tint and has accurate colors. Is this correct?

    I'd love to see anandtech do a review of the samsung 173T.

    Kristopher you was right about NEC and LG cooperation.

    At CeBit NEC show the new 1980SXi that much probably will use the LG.Philips LM190E02 16ms S-IPS panel.

    Surely, I prefered that NEC would make his own panel, so we would have had a better choice... :(
