Samsung Widescreen LCD Monitor 21” model 215TW features a 8ms response time and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The accessories included are Power, DVI and VGA cables, Driver/software CD, Quick Setup Guides and Warranty Information. This monitor comes with built-in Speakers, HDMI, Component Video inputs, a 3.5mm Stereo jack and a set of RCA Audio jacks for use with the integrated speakers. Regular RCA inputs are also provided on the side of the monitor just in case you want to use it to monitor your camcorder or a nasty old VCR for example. Together with the Speakers there is a headphone jack in front of the monitor. The buttons are easy to use. It has a Height Adjustable Stand that allows the monitor to be displayed in portrait mode for scrolling long documents. This is done in the software that comes with the unit. However there is a little disappointment, the stand. The plastic used in this stand is not of high quality. The panel is solidly built. The rotation base is made of low quality plastic and really it’s not stable. Concerning its performance the monitor was tested by playing several animated and movies DVDs, pictures and slideshows. The colours were vibrant and the picture was bright without being washed out. Motion blur was not noticeable in most circumstances. Overall it’s very enjoyable but only the audio did not perform well. When playing Games the monitor blur is noticeable but not distracting enough to be a problem. The widescreen monitor gives you extra sideways your email and instant messaging client in full view while you work on a document on the other half screen. The text is sharp and clear when using documents. Spreadsheets, graphics and surfing the web. Overall this monitor has a fantastic picture, mediocre sound and a challenged stand.
