Samsung SyncMaster 710N & 711T LCD Display Reviews

Former staff writer    -   March 23, 2005


Conclusion
So, pretty heavy competition from all sides.

PHYSICAL FUNCTIONALITY
In terms of overall physical functionality, the 711T came in ahead, with the excellently designed base that really was the base for the monitor's quality. With a bit of added usefulness in being able to choose a Digital or Analog connection, the 711T came in a bit ahead in this category.

PERFORMANCE - The Numbers
This was a pretty even split, with both monitors clocking in at above-expected stats in all categories, but with the 710N really taking the cake with a 12ms response time.

PERFORMANCE - Gaming
Last but not least, gaming. This was largely a test for ghosting in fast, FPS games like Doom 3 and HL2. The 710N response time really paid off here, with no ghosting in the faster games, whereas with the 711T it was visible, but not overwhelming in the least. Overall, the 710N was better for FPS games.

FINAL JUDGEMENT
In all honesty, the monitors both have their downsides and their benefits. I'd like to argue that the 710N is a great monitor for heavy gamers and LAN Partiers. With a ligher weight, exceptional response time and better-then-average stats in all the other categories, the monitor allows a good symbiosis for the gamer on-the-go. With the 711T, we have an excellent monitor for the MMORPG gamer for games like World of Warcraft and the Saga of Ryzom. With excellent, crisp colours and a still respectable 25ms response time, the 711T performs well enough to be a good monitor for those of us not fragging on a regular basis.

Overall, I'd say the competition was too close to declare a 'winner'. We simply have 2 monitors tied for first, and both equally able to more then please their owners. Again an excellent showing by Samsung with 2 strong monitors. All it takes now is perfecting the details.
