Let's get on with the reason you all are viewing this review, the photos...
Seeing that this is indeed a $1200USD monitor, I feel that a packaging shot will illustrate the care that Samsung puts into its protective shipping. Great Job on protecting this expensive beauty!
Samsung provides you with all the necessary drivers, software and power cords to get this monitor hooked up and operating your TFT in a flash.
One main difference other than the size of this LCD, is the fact that the power transformer has been removed from the main screen and is a separate unit altogether. This is because, with a larger screen, a larger amount of power is needed and incorporating a larger transformer into the screen would add unneeded bulk to the monitor and allows the weight and size to be kept at a minimum.
And alas, the beauty comes forth. What a gorgeous monitor.
With the purchase of this monitor you get to perch this eye-catcher on your desktop. I have displayed this monitor to allot of my friends, and they love it and even get slightly jealous =).
The unique difference with this monitor when compared to the others that I have reviewed is the narrow bezel. This allows the larger TFT's to not become too bulky.
With the 2 inch increase in viewable area, the footprint is exactly the same size as Samsung's 17inch TFT variety.
To get your perfect viewing angle on your workdesk, Samsung allows for several orientation adjustments to get that comfortable viewing position. The one feature that really is unique is the landscape orientation.
