User-friendly, Low-cost Entry into HDTV-land!


I was attracted to the Samsung HCM422W HDTV monitor at first sight. The unit is very clean looking and has all the menu buttons right out where you can reach them with big labels; no panels to flip or tiny unreadable print to squint at in the dark....

Easy-to-use menu on remote AND on the console, low price, lots of features.

The matching stand has only one shelf. Would have liked two shelves.
