Ok, here's a small review about my TV/Monitor (sorry for the crappy pics):
First of all, the features:
- 19.0 inch wide screen
- 1440 × 900 (WXGA+) resolution
- 700:1 contrast ratio
- 160 degree /160 degrees horizontal/vertical viewing angles
- 8 ms response time
- Virtual Dolby and BBE sound
- Inputs include TV (antenna/cable), S-Video, Composite, Component, DVI Digital Link, analog RGB and more
- Picture-in-Picture (PC Desktop with a small TV Rectangle)
- Width x Height x Depth (mm): 466 × 406 × 216 at a Weight of 6,2 kg
- Energy consumption < 2W in Standby
I bought this TFT/TV-Combo a while back because I don’t really have the space for both in my small student flat. Besides: most affordable TFT-TVs couldn’t display the resolution of 1440×900. That means it can also display HDTV programming from an external source (in my case: my XboX).
It is equipped with Samsung’s Macic Tuner – The built-in tuner supports TV and video signal formats used in 140 countries worldwide, including NTSC, PAL, and SECAM.
The 8 Milliseconds Response Time is imho excellent for video and fast gaming. I don’t see any “smearing”; effects when playing on my Xbox,my Nintendo Wii or my PC.
At the moment I have the following things hooked up to it:
- SCART: Nintendo Wii
- DVI: Macbook
- DSUB (“VGA”;): My PC
- Component: My XboX via HDTV Component Cable running at 720P
- SVideo+Audio: Empty… for now :D
