Samsung Expands Monitor Line-up with 90 and 30 Series Monitors with HDTV Tuners

Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, the number one worldwide brand of LCD display products, today announced two new lines of multi-function monitors (MFMs) offering consumers a computer monitor and HDTV in one. Ranging from 21.5 to 24 inches, the 30 and 90 display series allow viewers to switch easily from work to play with enhanced picture quality all in one space-saving device.

“People are looking to do more in smaller areas and multi-function monitors are a great way to maximize the functionality of a single device,” said Young Bae, director of display marketing Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “Samsung continues to expand our multi-function offerings and these two new lines – the 30 and 90 series – provide a new range of options and value for our customers.”

Unique features for work and home
Both the 30 and 90 series monitors can be used as a small TV with full HD resolution and also feature Picture in Picture (PiP) so multi-tasking users can simultaneously use their computer and watch TV without the need for a second monitor or additional connections.

The monitors come equipped with two HDMI inputs for easy connection to multiple HD devices – cable boxes, video game consoles, Blu-ray players, etc. Samsung’s Connectshare feature adds even more multi-media capabilities allowing users to instantly view and listen to music, movies and photos on the monitor from a memory stick, portable media player, or digital camera through a plug-and-play USB connection.

For additional enhanced viewing options and productivity, the 30 and 90 series monitors are equipped with Samsung’s MagicAngle, which ensures users see full brightness and color range when viewing the monitor from above, below or to the side. Additional Magic Suite 2010 options included are Magic Eco, Magic Return, Magic Color, MagicTune and Magic Bright3.

Sleek Design
The new 30 and 90 series monitors are contemporary and elegant designs. The 24 inch LED 90 series is marked by a Touch of Color Mystic Brown finish accented with a chrome-coated quadruple stand. As with all Samsung LED technologies, the new 90 series monitors consume up to 40 percent less energy than non-LED displays.

The 30 series, available in 21.5, 23 and 24 inch screen sizes, is finished in a sleek black with a clear acrylic bar along the bottom bezel. Additionally, the 30 series features a rear wave pattern that makes it attractive for those sitting on either side of a desk or table.

Computer monitors are better for text, also this does PIP from 2 sources. Lots of TVs dont have PIP or if they do will only show 2 different TV channels with PIP not the computer source.

I dont mind it. Its the same stand as Samsung LED tvs, 3D TVs and their BX series computer monitors.

I think they just sold me with the mixed source PIP.

Edit: FOLEY HUCK! $540 for the FX2490HD? No thanks.

Not LED backlit, and only a tilt adjustment. My T260HD has 350 degree swivel as well, and I can't justify the upgrade cost.

Not really true. The biggest factor is pixel pitch. An LCD panel doesn't care if it's considered a TV or a monitor. lol.


Now, all I want to know is what panel type these are.
