So you have yourself a nifty laptop, working away diligently when you start to realize you might need more desktop space. Using a laptop, you find yourself locked into that 15-inch monitor but you need more room, what do you do? Well Samsung might have the perfect solution for you, if you have the extra space; the Samsung LD190G USB Monitor.
When I was asked to take a look at a couple of Samsung LCD monitors, as usual I jumped on whichever one was the larger size. In this case it would be the Samsung P2370HD though when I received it a few days later little did I realize at the time that this particular monitor would be a HDTV, bonus right? Over the course of my computer experience I have always enjoyed using and looking at Samsung LCD monitors. I have always found that they produce a bright, sharp and vivid display without having to break the bank and I was looking forward to test driving the P2370HD to see if Samsung has been keeping up with its quality for well built displays.
It seems like computer monitors, especially LCD monitors are finally starting to move over to the 16:9 aspect ratio. When we first started seeing widescreen models they were all 16:10 aspect ratio, so you would have resolutions like 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. Now the 16:9 models are starting to come out offering full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. Today we will be looking at one such monitor the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW, which is a 22-inch display that features a 5ms response time, 15000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and a very sleek design.
High Definition (HD), is the new thing. Everyone wants an HDTV, a Blu-ray player, Sony PS3, etc. With all of these components why not have an HD computer monitor as well? You can now get a Blu-ray player for your computer and many new HD monitors have HDMI input so you can connect anything up to it. The monitor we are looking at today does have one such HDMI input and looks great. The VX2433wm is a 23.6-inch widescreen (16:9) monitor that features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 2ms response time, and quite a few input choices.
In today’s digital world the majority of computer users are using LCD monitors. No matter where you are using a computer, in the office or in the home, Samsung is one of the top manufacturers of LCD monitors. Typically, LCD monitors are pretty much all the same when it comes to style and design. For example, you know that boring black bezel that makes LCD monitors look all the same? Samsung has decided to bring a bit more class and elegance to their LCD monitors with the introduction of their T series, T meaning Touch of Color.
It seems like all you see today is flat panel monitors and TV’s and that’s basically true. LCD’s take up far less space, they weigh less and most importantly they look MUCH better than their CRT counterparts. Today we will be looking at the VX20L 20-inch Widescreen LCD HDTV from Vizio. The 20-inch size makes it perfect for the dual solution for a TV and computer monitor. Something you would use in a dorm room or even as a spare monitor. This HDTV features a 1366 x 768 (720p) native resolution, built-in HDTV tuner, and HDMI input. Let’s take a look…
Sometimes the best things in life are unmarked or unbranded: Federal Reserve notes, police records, white bags of food at the grocery store, and cheap, generic medicines. Like those, this 22″ widescreen LCD monitor lacks markings or branding, but my keen eye, and Geeks.com’s product page, tell me this is an HP TS-22W7H monitor with HDMI and VGA input. It has speakers, too! Does this monitor shine? Does it display excellently? ThinkComputers finds out.
LED backlit LCD’s are something that we are just starting to see come into the consumer market. A lot of new notebook LCD’s are LED backlit, but you really do not see that many desktop LCD’s that are LED backlit. Mainly because producing a LED backlit LCD is 2-2x as expensive as producing the normal CCFL backlit LCD’s. Today we will be looking at the VLED221wm 22-inch display from ViewSonic, which is the world’s first sub $1000 LED backlit LCD, which will allow for most people to get their hands on it. It features an impressive 12000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and ability to represent 118% of the NTSC color gamut, which will provide great color reproduction. Let’s see what the VLED221wm is all about.
