After pinching your pennies and pouring over reviews and specs, you finally bought yourself an LCD panel with a slim body. You get it home and realize that the TV mount you got for it is 2 to 3 times as thick. Nothing quite kills the space and aesthetic of your beautiful display by having it protrude off the wall.

USB 3.0 displays might rival DisplayPort and HDMI

If you though the display connection battle was already complex with the inclusion of DisplayPort connections as well as HDMI, DVI, dual-link DVI and the legacy VGA ports still showing up on motherboards, be prepared for yet another option.  With the upgrade to USB 3.0 and bandwidth as high as 4.8 Gbps, it is very possible that USB 3.0 powered displays will start to filter out in early 2010.  There are already USB 2.0 displays available (we reviewed one from EVGA here) but they have been limited in frame rates and resolutions because

Is response time actually involved in LCD picture blur?  Do those fancy new motion enhancement features actually degrade your image quality?  Is it actually important to your eyes that you can spot motion blur in still images?  These are the questions that ExtremeTech decided to answer when they investigate the issue of motion blur on LCD screens.  Their testing involved eight LCDs, two plasmas, one Sony Professional HD Trinitron Studio Monitor and a CRT

Spotlight on the lower end of the 22" LCD market

Acer, ASUS, Samsung, LG and ViewSonic are all well known providers of LCD displays and it is a selection of those manufacturers that InsideHW gathered for a cheap 22" display roundup.  Each monitor sports almost exactly the same specifications apart from their claimed contrast, a stat that can be measured by many means and is at best slightly misleading.  Read on for an overview of the current state of affairs in the lower end of the 22" market.

AMDs EyeFinity is getting a lot of press, much more so than nVIDIA's 3D Glasses; possibly this is because it is easy to post a video of EyeFinity in action.  In order to show a review or video in 3D the viewer has to have already picked up the glasses as well as a 120Hz monitor, at which point they are obviously already hooked.  Not to let such difficulties slow them down, X-bit Labs takes a look at ViewSonic's FuHzion VX2268wm 3D

60Hz displays will probably be the next thing to fall victim to obsolescence as we start to see 120Hz displays appearing on the market.  The 1680x1050 Samsung Syncmaster 2233RZ
is one example of the displays taking advantage of the new display technology and at $319 you don't pay too much of a premium for the privilege of

At only 19", the 1366x768 Samsung SyncMaster 19-inch LD190G might seem a bit small to be interesting but this particular LCD has a few tricks up its sleeving.  ModSynergy liked its overall look as well as its viewing angles, which seemed better than most models to them.  The neat trick that it can do involved the built in USB plug, not intended for use as a hub but instead to allow you to use another monitor.  It is also very handy for use with a laptop as you can connect the monitor to it via that same USB plug and the help of some software.  Drop by for a look at this multi-talented, multi-display monitor.

"Today presents an interesting review of a new series of monitors coming from Samsung called LapFit, which looks to bring versatility and expandability to notebook users whom are seeking a quality multi-display solution without needing additional hardware or confusing adapters.

What is impressive about the new LapFit displays is the fact that Samsung offers you a chance to add multiple external monitors to a single PC without the need of additional graphics card or complex software installations, with everything being all done via USB connection. Read on to learn about the new Samsung SyncMaster 19-inch LD190G widescreen LapFit LCD monitor and to see if this is something that could peak your interests. Reviewing this monitor made it clear that the LapFit is not only useful just for the notebook crowd."

The Samsung SyncMaster P2370
is a 23", 1920x1080 LCD which is about 1.25" thick.  The stylish design is the main focus of this display, The Tech Zone didn't spot ghosting but they didn't sound convinced it would be there for a hard core gamer.  The brightness and colour contrast were certainly acceptable, so this display might be best used to watch movies.  With it's ability to show true 1080p quality and its stylish design, it would satisfy most HTPC enthusiasts.

The ViewSonic VX2433wm is a $220, 23" LCD whose native 1920x1080 happens to be the same resolution as 1080p.  This means that your HD content will not have any pixel manipulation in order to display.  It also sports a fast enough response rate to allow ghosting free gaming.  Big Bruin would like to give you a warning about the built in speakers though.

The reason that the ViewSonic VX2433wm 23.6-inch is called an HD LCD Monitor is because it's native resolution is 1920x1080 (16x9 not 16x10), meaning 1080i/p content can be played without any image manipulation.  ViewSonic kept that theme with the inputs as well, having an HDMI in for playing with HD consoles or a Blu-ray player, as well as the more familiar DVI-D input.

The ASUS VW266H looks perfectly normal at first glance, a 25.5" LCD that runs at 1920X1200 and has a 2ms grey to grey response rate is a common sight now; the $350 price tag is unique.  You aren't limited to using this as a PC monitor either, with HDMI plugs and S/PDIF out, it is perfect for gaming consoles or even attached to an HD cable box or PVR.  The only caveat that Ryan found is present on all TN matric LCDs; the viewing angle sucks and you had better plan on sitting directly in front of the monitor.  Check out his full review at the top of the page.

"The ASUS VW266H and VK266H offer an outstanding combination of features, screen size and price to really put a stamp on the LCD monitor market. If you are a gamer on a budget or just a PC user looking for a display that can also be used for your console gaming or DVR set top box, then definitely give this ASUS monitor a shot!"
