If you are an enthusiast or not, if you have a newer computer, chances are it's got more connections than you can shake a stick at. USB, IEEE1394, SATA, Ethernet, the list goes on and on. But one thing that is seldom seen is the A/V connectors commonly seen on TVs. It makes perfect sense to have them in place. With a TV tuner/PVR card, you can copy, play, and record audio and video between live TV/radio, VCR, DVD player, cassette player, digital video camera, security camera, and many other gadgets. Sounding better yet?

While this monitor doesn't have the ultra-low refresh rates gamers prefer, it looks like a pretty nifty device to me. It is certainly a lot less clunky than a 21" CRT and a PCI TV tuner!
Quote: "Samsung has been delivering products of superior quality in
their Syncmaster product line for some time now! Their latest product, the
SyncMaster 173MP is no exception. This product has the same distinguished
aesthetics we have become accustomed to from Samsung and is a sister model
of the 192MP. This 17 inch, HDTV-ready flat screen monitor is going to make
some noise in the market.

3DVelocity takes a look at one of the first 12ms LCDs available. Has Samsung finally created an LCD that everyone will agree is superior to existing CRT technology?
Quote: 16Ms LCD's are fairly common today but in the case of the Samsung 172X, they are pushing the envelope with an impressive 12ms response rate.
Samsung is one of the leaders in consumer electronics today and are well known in the LCD industry. I personally have used many of their products from graphics card memory to system memory and optical drives.
