Yes, we're rather excited too...
While we were thrilled by Samsung’s 940UX USB monitor (and therefore you ”should” be too) there’s nothing like scaling up…
Consequently, while we admittedly know next to nothing about the ‘SyncMaster 2263DX’, Sammy’s newly leaked addition to its USB line, I simply had to shout from the rooftops that it exists!
Of course what we can grab from the name is that the range is stepping up to the 22in form factor and – most likely – a 1680 x 1050 native resolution. It also – rather obviously – will sport USB2.0 connectivity letting it be daisy chained as well as the usual DVI or VGA (or even HDMI) ports.
Now while you probably didn’t need an actual product leak to guess that a larger DisplayLink based LCD was on the way, this should still fill your heart with warmth. After all, 24in and 30in monitors remain prohibitively expensive for many so the option to spare your wallet while gaining more overall desktop retail estate and independently working screens is a real boon.
Now I can’t imagine Samsung will have the USB monitor market to itself for long – but while the sun shines those industrious Koreans are certainly making a rather monstrous pile of hay.
