When I received the phone call from UPS to meet the truck to pick up an item they had for me, I didn’t realize how small a monitor box could be for an LCD. In fact, I didn’t realize what I was going to be reviewing next when Bob asked me if I had access to a laptop. The cool feature I noticed right away that this particular Samsung LCD is that it has USB connectivity. I have always wanted to take a look at a monitor that had a USB connection.
The design of the LD190G is similar to the more recent models of LCDs that Samsung has out on the market. The nicely beveled, black piano finished bezel along with the hidden touch-sensitive buttons does add a hint of elegance to this particular model. You will notice right away that there is no stand that you attach the monitor to, it sits level on the surface you place it on. This is to keep it aligned with the screen of a laptop.
The backside of the monitor is where the connections are made. There is the typical AC power, analog monitor connector and then the USB connection.
The stand, which also acts as a simple cable path is fairly unique too, as it has a pair of rollers on the bottom. This is how the monitor tilts. You press down on the top of the monitor, the rollers roll and the monitor tilts upwards to match the angle of your laptop screen.
