Samsung 215TW 21-inch monitor reviewed
We know you've been fretting the Vista-mandated upgrade to an HDCP monitor (haven't you?), but according to this review of Samsung's new 21-inch widescreen addition to the prolific Syncmaster series, the transition shouldn't be that tough. At 1680 x 1050, the resolution is average, even for smaller 20-inch models, but the expanded range of physical adjustability and a bevy of connection options, including DVI, D-SUB, component video and S-Video can at least make up for the expectedly terrible performance of the integrated speakers. Other specs, like an 8ms response time, PIP, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 178-degree viewing angle and the MagicBright technology, which helps it adapt to any environment, push the 215TW to a slightly higher level --  and price point (£469.98) -- than the slew of other 21-inch LCDs out there.
