I thought I should start a new thread specifically for this topic. Samsung is updating their LCD monitors with a lot of the features which people on the Dell side of the fence have been waiting on. Most notably HDCP. The 3 models which may be of most interesting to members of this forum are the ones that are ment to go head to head with the Apple and Dell (and in one case Gateway) 20/21", 23/24", and 30" monitors. The 21" 215TW blows the Gateway FPD2185W 21" out of the water with style and at $50 cheaper in suggested retail price. $70 cheaper if you shop around. It's available in both silver and black, features speakers with a full compliment of video inputs accompanied by RCA/stereo audio inputs and headphone output. It can swivel, tilt, change from landscape to portrait mode, and be lowered to about an inch off the desk surface. Like the FPD2185W it features picture-in-picture, but also Picture-and-picture (split screen) which the Gateway lacks.This is the one I'm getting. Pictures of the silver model can be found on Samsung's German site, but dail-up users be warned these pictures are huge (3432x4111). The 24" 245T is replacing the 244T with all of the same features, but the same new styling as the 215TW. No speakers, but it does feature the new stand that can be lowered to an inch of the desk surface, something the 244t was not capable of. Finally Samsung gets into the Dual-Link game with the 30" 305T. Few details are available yet, but we know like the Dell 30"incher it lacks analog video inputs. While Samsung doesn't advertise it very well, you have to dig through PDF manuals to find it, these displays are HDCP compliant. They also introduced some 2ms gaming displays with a standard 5:4 aspect ratio. Speaking of aspect ratio all of the Samsung monitors I mentioned above are 16:10. Unlike Dells the Samsungs lack a 16:9 letterboxing mode for wide screen content coming through the video inputs. So there is a slight squeeze of the picture, but most people won't even notice. And this won't matter if you watch movies on your DVD-ROM drive as you computer will scale the video to preserve the aspect ratio. Besides most films are shot in a much wider aspect ratio than the stubby 16:9 format anyway.
