Samsung LD220G review


The Samsung LD220G is a multipurpose monitor that can be used as a standalone display or paired with a laptop as a companion screen. The $230 monitor has USB-video connectivity, bypassing connection to the video card. Unfortunately, the display has...

The Samsung LD220G has a sleek design and a simple interface for using it as a companion monitor to a laptop.

The Samsung LD220G's USB game performance is slow and choppy, there's no contrast control in the onscreen display, and it's plagued by glaring screen uniformity problems.

The Samsung LD220G works as a companion monitor, but there are better models out there if you're looking for a standalone 22-inch display.

22IN/20V 24mm 2048x1536 79hz Syncmaster 1200nf USB Tco-99


WHAT'S HOT: We were particularly impressed with the quality of graphics screens rendered by the Samsung SyncMaster 1200NF; colors looked accurate, and subtle shading (such as flesh tones and shadows) looked true to life. The display can also handle...

Also at the rear are two upstream ports (which connect to the PC);you can switch them through the on-screen menu. This means that you can havetwo PCs can share a set of USB devices by switching the active upstream port inthe same way that you switch...

Samsung LD220G and Mag Innovision GML2226


Today we'll examine two flat panel monitors, the Samsung LD220G and the Mag Innovision GML2226. While neither one will break your budget, they're each designed for rather different purposes.

Samsung LD220Z Lapfit Touch review


Does adding multi-touch make Samsung's laptop-focussed screen worth the money?

Samsung SyncMaster LD220 review


Samsung's laptop-centric monitor is a good performer

Nice screen ; Good 'laptop' design ; Simple features ; USB screen connection

Colours can be over-vibrant ; No digital interface

Although this monitor lacks a true digital interface it makes up for it by using USB ports and the pictures are almost top-notch

Samsung SyncMaster LD220HD - 22in HDTV Monitor


This 22in, 1080p HDTV and Monitor combo looks a bargain at £200.

Anyone who demands flexibility on a small budget should seek out the LD220HD. For £200 it offers truly stunning value, particularly as the performance and attention to detail of the set far outstrips anything you'll see on no-name alternatives.

Samsung SyncMaster LD220 review


The rationale behind Samsung's latest monitor is that laptop users want an external display that sits at the same height as their laptop's screen.

A great-quality USB monitor that's a good choice only if your laptop's monitor output is already being used for another display.

Samsung LD220G Lapfit


The LD220G Lapfit is touted as a secondary display specifically for notebooks. With its slick glossy black bezel it won\'t look out of place next to even the flashiest of laptops.

1080p display on almost 22

No HDMI or DVI input, seems a bit too specialised.

Samsung SyncMaster LD220 monitor review


If you want to add another monitor to your desk but have run out of video ports, this DisplayLink powered Samsung could be the answer.

DisplayLink technology is pushed to new heights with the Samsung SyncMaster LD220. While general image quality is good, performance with motion is lacking, and the glossy finish on bezel and screen won't suit professionals. The LD220 solves a specific...

A Quality Niche Product


There are very few DisplayLink products on the market, and even fewer with the newer chips supporting full 1920x1080 resolution. This is one of them, and made with typically high Samsung quality. Display is sharp, bright and vivid. The USB connection...

Excellent image quality via USB connection ; Typically excellent Samsung build quality ; Clean, simple, smooth frame design integrates well with most modern consumer electronics

No DVI connection, so if you plan to use this display with 3D-enabled applications or games, you will have to deal with an analog VGA connection, which, with the vast majority of modern video cards, means blurry output (they just don't make analog-outs...
