Samsung Unveils Five New LCD Monitors
Samsung has unveiled five new LCD monitors with screens sizes of 15.6-inch, 18.5-inch, 20-inch, 21.5-inch and 23-inch, all of which flaunt a glossy black bevel and stylish modern appearance.
The smallest of the new monitors, the Samsung 633NW, features a rather modest 15.6-inch LCD screen with a 1,360 by 768 resolution. The screen has a brightness of 250 cd/m², a response time of 8 ms and a seemingly shallow horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 90˚/65˚. The screen’s contrast ratio is stated to be 500:1, although the screen’s dynamic contrast ratio is rated at 10,000:1. The display only has a D-Sub connector, no DVI input it seems, but such a move was probably done to keep costs down. The screen can tilt and thanks to the small screen size, power consumption is rated at just 17-watts.
The next largest screen, the Samsung 933SN, features an 18.5-inch screen with a resolution of just 1,360 by 768. The screen has a brightness of 300 cd/m², a 5 ms response time, a contrast ratio of 1:1000, a dynamic contrast ratio of 15,000:1 and a comparably much better horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 170˚/160˚. Again, the monitor only has a D-Sub connector, no DVI it would seem, but at least its typical power consumption is rated at just 18-watts and the screen can tilt.
Next, the Samsung 2033SW features a 20-inch display with a 1,600 by 900 resolution. The screen’s brightness is rated at 300 cd/m², the contrast is rated at 1000:1 and the dynamic contrast ratio is rated at 15,000:1. The screen also has horizontal/vertical viewing angles of be 170˚/160˚, a response time of 5 ms and the monitor supports HDCP. The 21.5-inch Samsung 2233SW on the other hand knocks up the resolution to a stunning 1,920 by 1,080 and offers horizontal/vertical viewing angles of be 160˚/160˚. It also has a 5 ms response time, a brightness of 300 cd/m² and supports HDCP over DVI. Both screens can tilt and have a power consumption rated at no more than 40-watts.
Last but not least, the Samsung 2333SW features a 23-inch display with 1,920 by 1080 resolution, which should make it great for watching HD movies on. The display has a response time 5 ms, a brightness of 300 cd/m² and horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 170˚/160˚. The contrast ratio is stated to be 1000:1, with a dynamic contrast ratio of 15,000:1. Power consumption is rated at 49-watts and HDCP is supported over DVI. The new monitors are expected to be released in Japan within the month.
