Samsung has rolled out the 22" SyncMaster 2243QW, this is world's third LCD display with support for DisplayLink. This technology enables you to connect a display to your computer via an USB cable.
The Samsung SyncMaster 2243QW is priced at $399.99. The panel features a 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution, 5ms response time and 1,000:1 contrast ratio. In addition to a built-in USB hub, it features the traditional VGA (15-pin D-sub) and DVI-D connections. The monitor is compatible with both Mac and Windows systems, and it comes with a pivot function that allows it to operate in either portrait or landscape mode.
The new monitors make it possible for busy office workers and business professionals to use a simple USB cable to extend their desktop and visual workspace, boosting usability and flexibility. Up to six displays can be easily connected and powered off of one PC. There’s no need for additional graphics cards or complex software installation – benefits especially valuable for laptop users who want to combine portability with the practicality of a larger, richer screen surface.
“No other PC accessory brings people as much productivity and power as an additional display, so why make it complicated to connect one?” said Dennis Crespo, executive vice president of marketing and business development for DisplayLink. “Samsung’s ongoing innovation continues to deliver outstanding multi-monitor computing experiences to users worldwide. It’s particularly gratifying that Samsung once again chose DisplayLink USB graphics technology for its newest USB monitor.”
