The Samsung SyncMaster E1720NR is an entry-level 17" LCD monitor. It is the smallest model in Samsung's "Essential" line. The 4:3 display is designed more for office than home use, featuring MagicEco technology, which makes it easy to save energy by reducing screen brightness. The monitor complies with TCO Display 5.0 standards, but not Energy Star. The wall-mountable E1720NR features standard specs for a unit in its class, including a 5ms response time and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The monitor's MagicReturn feature aims to simplify working with a dual-monitor configuration. The monitor's adjustability is limited to a tilt function, but MagicAngle technology aims to optimize picture quality at different angles. A 19" inch version, the E1920NR, is also available.
