Samsung 2443BW: 24

Samsung: The Samsung 2443BW has a lot of great features. The 20,000 dynamic contrast ratio, a fairly fast response time 5ms, and a decent straightforward design. But when you dig a little bit, you realize that features are just skin deep. The large 24″ display is limited by a TN LCD panel that provides just 170/160 viewing angles. Height adjustment? Nope. Rotate? Forget it. Brightness is a decent 300 cd/m2 but use the 2443BW as a LCD monitor. If you’re looking for an HDMI connection for your PS3, it’s not there. The great dynamic contrast is wasted as it would be difficult to connect this monitor to other video sources besides your PC.
