Layout, design and features …
Let us first take a look at the front of the Samsung S32D850T monitor. The MVA panel is surrounded by a frame which is bent inward. Unfortunately, Samsung has not been able to completely eliminate the reflections of the image in the frame. But the optical impression can convince. Samsung is not really well known for their exaggerated design elements. So the S32D850T presents itself in an elegant titanium silver, complemented by matt black elements and a large but simple stand in a square shape.
Unfortunately the meaningful certification, EPEAT Gold, finds no more space in the bottom left corner. There only the TCO or EneryStar logo is shown. In the lower right corner there are the controls which were choosen in spite of the current touch operation delusion in traditional knob shape. It is a pity that Samsung has not chosen the high quality buttons because the build-in types makes a rather cheap impression. The On-button has a small build-in LED, which shows the operation with a white light and standby operation with a white flash. To the left of the buttons is a small lens, which is home to the brightness sensor.
We change once the angle of view and take a look at the connections of the Samsung S32D850T. On the left side the is the connection for the power supply in the form of an IEC socket. The power supply is already installed inside the monitor. This requires, unfortunately, the somewhat thicker construction, as we shall see later.
Although the monitor does not have built-in speakers he has large ventilation slats adorn the back. These are used to cool the internal power supply and/or other electronics.
From the outside Samsung has so leave quite exercised understatement. Whether that can be said in operation, or we are dealing with a genuine all-rounder we find out in a practical test for you.
