The Samsung SyncMaster 225UW is a 22-inch widescreen monitor. It has a built-in 2-megapixel webcam, stereo speakers and microphone; a 1650×1050 resolution, 700:1 contrast ratio and 5 ms response time. The Samsung SyncMaster 225UW is the first official product on the market able to interface with Microsoft’s Office Communicator 2007 IM/VoIP/PBX communications group. Meaning that the 225UW can be used as a desk phone as well. The best is in the layout of the OSD and the power buttons, the Samsung 225UW has a unique feature, and the panel features touch buttons. Samsung has provided both cables for DVI or D-SUB output on your video card, as well as the power cord. It also has the power inverter built into the screen so just a straight power cord. Some of its applications are Windows (Desktop, Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Mozilla FireFox, File Compression, Encoding and Decoding) , Gaming (IMVU, NHL07, FIFA07, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07) , and DVD Movie Playback. The Plug and Play Detection picked up the monitor, and WindowsUpdate took care of everything from there. The standard display resolution in WindowsXP is 800x600, which stretches the desktop to fit the aspect ratio of the screen. After a quick change to its native resolution of 1680x1050, the colour and brightness combines perfectly well together. The 225UW plays DVD Movies well while the playback is deep and dark, vibrant and clear with no hazing or fuzziness, and the colors were exactly right. The SyncMaster 225UW LCD monitor is an amazing product with all the accessories that one looks forward to. Usually these accessories are offered on a notebook, and some if not all of them have to be purchased seperately. This Samsung SyncMaster 225UW with all its features and its very affordable price makes it a very attractive purchase.
