Combined monitor/TVs aren't a new concept but they do seem to be an ever more popular segment of the market, so anyone moving into a small flat or heading to university in just a few weeks time will be glad to see these two new ranges from Samsung.
Both the Samsung 90 Series and 30 Series sport Full HD 1080p (1,920 x 1,080) resolution screens with 5ms response time, have in-built speakers, HDMI connectivity, and come with remotes.
In particular the 90 Series consists of just the FX2490HD, which is a 24in model with LED backlighting, an entirely believable dynamic contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, 5W speakers, and the rather attractive lines you see in the picture above.
As for the 30 series, they come in three flavours; the 21.5in B2230HD, the 23in B2330HD, and the 24in B2430HD. They're just CCFL backlit so have a much more modest 70,000:1 contrast ratio, and only 3W speakers. What's more they sport the same design we've seen on previous Samsung monitors with a clear plastic stand, rather than the expensive TV-stylings of the 90 Series.
You can pick up the 90 Series come September, for $419.99. The 30 Series is available now at MSRP ranging from $269.99 - $329.99 based on size. We're awaiting confirmation of UK pricing.
