Part of the 43 Series, the Samsung 2443BWX has very thin bezels, just 1/2″ thick, which make it a good choice if you’re going to title these for multiple display applications. The 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio should aid in making motion video look a bit better. But don’t expect it to replace your LCD TV as it won’t look nearly as good. The viewing angle is just 170/160, which is a giveaway that the 2443BWX has a TN panel inside. TN panels are good for a couple of things: it is fast (5ms in this case) and cheap. Cheap is good for folks that don’t want to spend a lot of money on a big monitor. Folks such as those who work at IT departments at big companies, which the 2443BWX is geared toward.
An interesting feature in the 2443BWX is that you can set a time for it to turn of automatically. So when you’re working and you get distracted by the pizza delivery and forget about working the rest of the evening and fall asleep while watching reruns at 2am, you’ll can have peace in the knowledge that you have not wasted a tremendous amount of energy due to a bright fully on 24″ LCD monitor. That’s an extreme example, but for IT managers, having the ability to turn off all 1000 monitors at exactly 8pm might make things a bit easier. Of course you’ll piss off a few who are trying to get things done late in the evening.
