On this HDTV reviews site I of course write mostly about HDTVs and Blu-ray players, but every so often I like to write about LCD computer monitors which have great HD features such as a Full HD resolution and HDMI inputs.
Samsung have created a perfect range of computers monitors with HD playback and compatibility clearly in mind, with one model also featuring a built in HD tuner.
First up, if you’re looking for a computer monitor which can also be used for watching HD media, with HD game consoles, and also for watching HDTV on the Samsung P2370HD looks like the ideal monitor for you. The Samsung P2370HD has a 23-inch LCD panel, with full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution, integrated speakers with SRS TruSurround, HDTV tuner and HDMI and component inputs.
The Samsung P2370 is the same, but doesn’t feature the tuner or HDMI / component inputs, but it’s still great for watching HD media from the computer, as it features a 1080p resolution display.
The smaller model, the 20-inch Samsung P2070 has a lower 1600×900 pixel resolution, which is still good enough for 720p HD videos.
All three models look great with a very stylish design. They feature a fast 2ms response time, and high 50,000:1 contrast ratio for great colors. The Samsung P2370 and P2070 are very thin at just 30mm, while the HD packing Samsung P2370HD measures 65mm thick.
Update: The larger 27-inch Samsung P2770HD is now available.
