Samsung has always been pretty impressive with its LCD panels, both in terms of computer monitors and high-definition televisions. The spec sheets on these Samsung LCDs are always at the top of the class, but sometimes having an impressive spec sheet isn't good enough. These days, you need to be more than just a good LCD, it seems, and that's why so LCD monitors now come equipped with all sorts of secondary functions. Recognizing that you need to have these extra features to compete in the home computer market, Samsung has created a family of LCD monitors that do more than just show you a pretty picture. The Samsung SyncMaster 2263UW is one such unit. It has been designed largely as an all-in-one solution, helping you save some of that precious real estate on your shrinking desk.

Packaging and Box Contents
As with most other Samsung LCD monitors, the box for the SyncMaster 2263UW isn't exactly exciting. A basic list of features and other highlights have been printed on the brown box, so at least you have an idea what you are buying without opening the box. Aside from that, the box is rather nondescript.
Opening up the box, you'll find that the contents have been very neatly packed. All of the cables and other accessories are packed into the top of the styrofoam insert. Removing these and the top stryofoam lid, you find the SyncMaster 2263UW itself. Accessories include the power cable, DVI cable, VGA cable, USB cable, stand, base, cable management clip, documentation, and software CD.
The stand is comprised of two pieces. The first is inserted into the LCD panel and then this, in turn, is inserted into the base. It is then secured via a single screw.
