I know I know, don't waste time talking about the packaging, but in this case I will make an exception. Samsung has taken the smart approach to packaging and made this product easy to take home. With an overall profile which is slightly larger than a large laptop bag, this monitor will not be a chore to carry
It was only a few short years ago that I remember a 19" monitor coming in a box you could fit a whole computer case in.
First out of the box as usual is your setup, warranty and registration paperwork along with the driver and software CD. Seeing this monitor has a gloss black piano finish, it can be rather prone to smudging from fingerprints. To help in this matter, Samsung chose to supply a lint free cloth for cleaning and keeping your monitor looking its best.
Other than the monitor itself, the included hardware is comprised of a power cord, along with an analog and digital video cable.
To keep the packaging as small as possible, the monitor base is separate from the monitor and the monitor stand. All that needs to be done is to attach the base and screw in the fastening screw to keep the stand in place. It takes all of 30 seconds to put together.
When everything is put together, you have this stylish 20" widescreen monitor to take advantage of. The styling is understated, but not bland and should fit into any room with any decor.
