So what do you get for US$350-450 depending on the retail location? First off with the dual functionality, you can't expect this 27" display to have a price tag much like a standard monitor of this size. The price is quite a bit more expensive, but with all the features packed into one package, it is still much less expensive than the same product only a couple years ago.
First out is the extensive user's manual, cleaning cloth and warranty paperwork and the software CD. Make sure you register this product to take advantage of your warranty. In no way do you want to pay to replace this monitor is some fluke problem occurs. Cover yourself and register for your warranty.
The hardware kit included an analog VGA cable, the power supply, a USB and stereo cable along with a set of AAA batteries. the one item I would have like to have seen included is an HDMI cable. With the bulk cost of such a cable now being around 25cents, it would have been nice addition.
Well seeing this in part is a fully functional HDTV, you also get a fully functional remote control which in essence is exactly the same remote you would get with much larger LED and Plasma TVs manufactured by Samsung.
And finally you have the actual HDTV/Monitor which comes fully assembled and easy to install. First impressions once removed from the box is that this is a very stylish display aimed to be as aesthetic as it is functional. The gloss black and white finish along with the study build construction reminds me of what I would have seen if I had just recently unpackaged an Apple product. Everything about this display is simple and elegant.
Let's move on to the next page and take a better look around this monitor and point out some interesting features.
