Samsung T190 detailed review

A 19-inch Bordeaux?

The Samsung T910 seems to be influenced by the Bordeaux line. The design, especially the transparent bezel surrounding the screen, gave us this impression. The whole body is glossy, and there is a neat little touch-sensitive power button at the bottom. There is a strip of of red at the bottom and overall it is a very pretty screen to have.


As far as specifications go, there is no differentiator between this or any other 19-inch, and it has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900.

The stand is sturdy, but offers no flexibility in terms of moving the screen about or rotating it. All the controls are mounted on the right side of the screen which makes it difficult to control the menus and features. The buttons are pretty clunky too. There are plenty of controls that allow you to alter the intensity of colours separately. Samsung has put in features such as MagicBright that allows brightness and contrast presets to be used.

With all the enhancements turned off, the usual sequences of tests were run on the screen. Colour rendition was average and banding was visible through the Displaymate test. Movies don’t look extremely good either.

The screen comes with both VGA and DVI support, and there is a panel behind to hide the mess of cables.

All in all, this screen is for those to whom great aesthetics and design are more important than performance. Since this isn’t close to the best, or worst, performer amongst the 19-inch screens we’ve seen, it isn’t all that bad. Its pricing of Rs 13,000 is a lot though, even if it’s Bordeaux-inspired, considering that you can get a much larger screen for around this price.
