Samsung‘s 2243WM is a 22″ LCD monitor sporting a TN TFT LCD with a 1680 x 1050 pixel format. Contrast ratio is a very decent 1000:1 with an average brightness of 300 cd/m2. Viewing angles are 170/160, slightly less than ideal but shouldn’t be too much of a problem since most users tend not to move side to side. There are VGA, DVI and composite connections. You can pivot the 2243WM to view it in portrait mode but I would caution against doing that since a TN LCD will look quite bad with the limited 160-degree viewing angle. The 5ms response time is not slow but isn’t all that fast. The best price that I could find was at Shark Systems for $222.08 before tax and shipping–a pretty good price.
