   The 172T we received was silver in color, a black version is also available with the same specs.

   As with many of the other Samsung units, it comes with a suite of display buttons on the front.  The buttons are not touch sensitive, so they do give a very low clicking sound.  I rather like these buttons, having hard to press buttons on a LCD monitor is not a good idea.  With the weight of these units being a fraction of their CRT counterparts, a slight nudge on a hard button may send it off your table.

   The 'Auto' button allows you to auto adjust your screen to a perfect fit.  No need to adjust vertical or horizontal positions anymore.  The 'Source' button lets you flip between analog and digital connections.  For our testing, we tested it using the analog connection.  I've noticed after reviewing quite a number of LCDs, digital barely beats out the analog connection.  That may just be my eyes talking, but in games and movies there hasn't been that 'wow' factor for me in regards to DVI.

   The display configuration lets you adjust just about everything.  The brightness controls are immediately available on the front of the unit, since those are the most used options.
