If you're a fan of Samsung's black lacquer, piano finish then be sure to check their new line-up of SyncMaster
LCD monitors. Announced in 20-inch (CX206BW) and 22-inch (CX226BW) models, both deliver a 3000:1 contrast ratio and lickity-quick 2ms response time. Resolution? Not announced, but like all the other 22-inchers out there, it's safe to say that this one (pictured) likely sports that ubiquitous 1680x1050 pixel resolution. Besides, given the way Sammy likes to toss the "Full HD" buzz-phrase around
, maybe it's best they just keep quiet on the matter, eh? Apparently, these are the "Windows Vista Premium certified," slabs we heard were coming
. In other words, they include at least one HDCP-enabled DVI input around back just like most newer monitors sold (only without all the hubbub). In Korea, these will set you back 370,000KRW ($399) for the CX206BW or 439,000KRW ($473) for CX226BW -- chunky bezels: free.
