Samsung 20 in. TOC Monitor/HDTV
on October 12, 2008
Received this last week and so far couldn't be happier.
I'm using this as a HDTV only hooked up by HDMI to my cable box.
Great hi def picture and pretty good sound.
SD pictures are not as good but plenty watchable.
I have it sitting on my desk next to my Dell 2407 (1920 by 1200) computer monitor and from about 3 feet, the TOC is the perfect size and the HD picture looks great.
As someone reviewing the 22 in. TOC said, it is a 16:10 screen so you get about .6 in. of black screen on the top and bottom when viewing a 16:9 hdmi input, but it doesn't bother me.
Someone also said that not filling the screen will cause burn-in.
I have hundreds of hours playing games on my 24 in. 1080p LCD with an un-filled screen and have not had a problem, so I'm not worried.
Some shows on my cable fill the screen so it's not as if that part of the screen is always black.
Oh yeah, 3 year warranty for monitors instead of 1 yr for TVs
As usual, fast, free shipping (super saver- 7 days for me) and good service from Amazon.
