Samsung dishes out five new SyncMaster LCDs

At this point, the whole subtly curvaceous / glossy black motif on the SyncMaster line has become a tad unexciting, but we suppose it still gets the job done. Today, Samsung has unleashed five new ones to chew on, and if you weren't an expert on spotting differences in dimensions, you'd have a tough time telling them apart. For starters, we've got the 15.6-inch SyncMaster 633NW and 18.5-inch 933SN, both of which get stuck with just a VGA port and a 1,360 x 768 resolution. Movin' on up, we see the 20-inch 2033SW (1,600 x 900) and 21.5-inch 2233SW / 23-inch 2333SW (1,920 x 1,080), all of which tout a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 5-millisecond response time, 170-degree viewing angles, DVI / VGA inputs and 300 cd / m2 brightness. Expect the whole lot to show up in Japan within the next month for ¥18,000 ($187) to ¥30,000 ($312).
