CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
Would you like to watch TV on your computer? Do you not want to buy a separate card to get this feature? Perhaps you are in the market for a new monitor? Well, look no further, you have an option. This monitor has been hooked up to Tweaknews.net's test rig for the past two weeks. When testing hardware, I use it as a normal monitor and I go about my daily tasks. When I move back to my workstation to write a review as I am doing now, I turn it into a normal TV. It's great! I usually just keep the news on in the background while I work away pecking at my keyboard. Man, what are they going to come out with next? A DVD player built in? Perhaps a small printer? Who knows? If you have a budget set aside for a monitor and a TV card, maybe this monitor is for you. If you have even more set aside, you can go up to a 17 inch monitor with the same capabilities or if you are loaded, try the new 24 inch beast!!
Yet again, I would like to thank Samsung Canada for their kind donation of this monitor and allowing me to review it for our loyal readers.
Stay tuned everyone!! I haven't even started yet. I still have two more TFT LCD's to review and just for kicks, a 17 inch TFT TV has been thrown in just for spice =D.
