Do you have one of those fantastic old cathode ray tube VDUs cluttering up your home office/study? Or fancy a second monitor to monitor all your trades? Well, it´s time to send it to the Leafy Glades VDU Retirement Home where it can sit in the corner glowing gently and mutter about how nobody appreciates classic engineering anymore.

Samsung S19B150 18.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Wide but slim  - side viewInstead let´s see what the slim line Samsung S19B150 18.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor has to offer. OK, as the name suggests it measures 18.5 inches across the diagonal and has a widescreen format (16:9 ratio – old VDUs/TVs where 4:3…). The Samsung supports a maximum resolution of 1366×768 pixels, perfectly adequate considering its size.

But what about the picture quality? Well, these days LED/LCD monitors are classified by their contrast ratio and display brightness. The Samsung certainly scores with a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, the highest value currently available. It´s not too shoddy with a display brightness of 200 cd/m² and response time of 5ms. Samsung call this Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio – designed to ensure the darkest blacks and brightest whites, obvious sounding I know, but you´d be surprised how dull the display can be on some modern displays.

And don´t think all this tech is going to be sending your electricity bill through the roof – the Samsung S19B150 has been designed with energy saving in mind. With a built-in eco-saving feature it automatically adjusts the brightness of your monitor based on your power saving requirements. You can select from three energy saving modes 50%, 25% and Energy Saving Off to tailor the Samsung to your personal choice.

Connection is easy too, the Samsung S19B150 is fitted with a D-Sub(VGA) connector and a cable is included. Although there is no DVI/HDMI output, even the most modern PCs still have this type of connector. But more importantly if your PC is a few years older this will most definitely be the type of connection you need.

Summary
Why strain your eyes with that prehistoric VDU when you can marvel at the brightness and clarity of this lovely little number. And think of all the spare space on your desk you can fill up with other clutter instead!
