Samsung LD190 USB Laptop Monitor


I've been really intrigued lately by the number of USB DisplayLink powered monitors emerging on the market. These monitors are coming in all sorts of sizes and designs and usually have fairly affordable price tags to match. Ranging from 7" up to full...

Stylish, compact design ; USB DisplayLink interface allows you to easily expand the number of displays on any laptop or desktop ; Gloss coated display panel makes for vivid colours ; DisplayLink OS driver compatibility is great

Make it under $200 and I'm sold - most 19" and under displays are significantly cheaper

I like how Samsung has taken a regular LCD monitor and put two twists on it; they've optimized the form factor of it to be a perfect addition to laptops and small computers and they've also added the USB DisplayLink to easily add it on to any system -...

Samsung SyncMaster LD190G 19-inch Lapfit USB LCD Monitor Review


So you have yourself a nifty laptop, working away diligently when you start to realize you might need more desktop space. Using a laptop, you find yourself

– Small foot print ; – Great colour/clairity/sharpness ; – Can hook up multiple USB monitors in series

– Must load drivers prior to using ; – Due to USB functionality you cannot use 3D graphic accelerated programs

Samsung 19in Lapfit LD190 LCD


Samsung is no stranger to the LCD market, and they've had some great products and well as some that were not very impressive and even a few that were pretty controversial. Today we are looking at a new display from them that breaks the mold in terms of...

Compact design ; VGA input as well as USB2.0 ; Accurate color and image quality ; Allows multiple displays regardless of VGA/DVI ports ; Stand folds into display for easy transportation ; Great value for ~$130 online

Doesn't play back 720p or greater video ; Low contrast ratio ; Stand does not adjust

The Samsung Lapfit LD190 is a very unique display that is marketed at a unique demographic. It offers basic LCD functions with a very basic resolution. It doesn't have an adjustable stand, nor does it support DVI, HDMI or HDCP content. What it does...

Samsung SyncMaster LD190 LCD Monitor


If you have read some of my reviews in the past, then you may already know that I no longer have a desktop computer. Instead, I have come to rely ...

Innovative photo frame-like configuration ; Brilliant and rich colors ; USB connection for video input ; Quality Samsung LCD panel

Less than admirable resolution ; No DVI connection option or added features (webcam, mic, USB hub, speakers, etc.) ; Contrast ratio could be improved

Since it sits on your desk like a giant digital picture frame, you don't get the tilt and swivel functions that you normally would find with any other LCD. Of course, you could adjust the angle of the stand and rotate your screen as needed with it on...

Samsung SyncMaster LD190G 19-inch Widescreen LapFit LCD Monitor Review


The Samsung SyncMaster LD190G comes in typical Samsung fashion utilizing a compact corrugated box that features the product picture on the front and information regarding the product around the box such as that the actual screen size is precisely...

Great color reproduction; Glossy looks sexy; Wide viewing angle; Includes both VGA and USB cables; Lightweight; Fast startup

Lacks DVI; Price is subjectively high; USB connection requires compromises; Ubisync USB software will tax the system; Can’t use the monitor for intensive usage if using USB connectivity

I like the Samsung LD190G and it presents a great way to add external monitor support to your notebook/netbook PC if you’ve ran out of the spare VGA connection. Utilizing the USB port to hook up an external monitor does have its limitations but overall...
