The LCD market has become huge over the past 12 months due to the decision by many manufacturers to place them into mass production. Last year some of the larger factories decided to start creating more and more LCDs, one particular company has been Samsung and thanks to the increased production, LCDs have dropped in price, increased in quality and overall become more common.
The problem that a lot of people come to when they want to choose an LCD is that when a sales person simply tells them it's a "15" LCD", people assume that its smaller then their current 17" CRT. LCDs are measured in screen size compared to full monitor size with CRTs. A 17" CRT monitor will have a screen size of about 16", while a 15.1" LCD has an actual screen size of 15.1".
Samsung has been producing high quality LCD monitors for a long time now and we hope to find that the 172W is no exception. LCDs do still have flaws in them and we will look more into them later on but for now we will get straight into it and see what the Samsung 172W has to offer and what exactly the W at the end of the model name means if you haven't already guessed.
