Samsung introduce SM225BW: 22-inch HD capable LCD monitor


samsung22monitor.jpgSamsung have unveiled their latest LCD monitor, a 22-incher.

It features a maximum resolution of 1680×1050, which is a 16:10 aspect ratio, and you won’t quite be able to watch your 1080i/p high-def content, but it should do quite well (albeit with black lines at top and bottom) on 720p content.

It has a response time of 5ms, a 160 degree viewing angle all round, a brightness of 280cd/m2, contrast ratio of 700:1, and 16.7 million supported colours.

It has a DVI-D digital input as well as analogue RGB. Importantly for future-proofing it is also HDCP compliant, and claims Vista compatibility.

It comes with optional multimedia speakers, and the cabinet is silver. The stand can be height adjusted up to 10cms, and also swivelled.

Not sure of the RRP, but have seen them online from £295.
