Boys and their Toys (Part 283)

Samsung 24 inch Monitor When we visited Ralph and Karen last week, we were mighty impressed with their new PC monitor. It looked enormous and the screen clarity was just… amazing!

I couldn’t resist! and today, courtesy of eBuyer, mine arrived – the Samsung SyncMaster P2450H – and all for less than 180 notes. It was easy to set up – I just plugged it in and then installed the drivers from the accompanying CD and that was it!

For the spec-heads, these are the numbers:

  • Screen Size: 24" Wide
  • Brightness: (Typical) 300 cd
  • Contrast Ratio: (Typical) DC 70000:1(1000:1) (Typ.)
  • Resolution: 1920x1080
  • Response: Time (Typical) 2ms (GTG)
  • Connector 15pin D-SUB VGA, DVI-D, HDMI
  • Viewing Angle: (Horizontal/Vertical) 170 degrees/160 degrees (CR>10)
  • Color Support: 16.7M

Fantastic!!!!
