PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH & PICTORIAL
Moving around to the back, you will see that it is rather simple with abundant ventilation and with the amount of heat that this monitor emits, it is a good thing that there is adequate airflow.
Unlike most monitors on the market today, you do have the ability to adjust the height. Through the spring assisted rear mechanism, you have a full 100mm of additional height to take advantage of whether you need it or not. You also have about 20 degrees of monitor tilt to find that perfect viewing angle.
This monitor is also able to be adjust into landscape viewing. This comes in handy when constantly reading and scrolling through long documents such as certain webpages or legal papers. Although I have seen this feature on plenty of monitors, I personally have never taken advantage of it. Also just as a side note, you won't really need the included Samsung software to rotate the screen seeing drivers from ATI, Nvidia, or any other manufacturer already have the feature natively built in.
And finishing up this section you have the rear connection panel. In the far left you have the main power connection with its associated switch. In the right section you have a HDMI connection, a your DVI & VGA connection along with a composite and S-Video port. You also have a 3.5mm audio port for porting any audio in the HDMI connection to a separate set of speakers if you are not using a set directly connected to a computer. In the far right is the main USB connection for the USB hub and is the main USB connection to your computer tower.
Overall, you shouldn't have a problem connecting this monitor to some sort of video connection. Every type is included.
