    Samsung's Series 7 and Series 3 monitors feature full HD LED displays, providing gamers with vivid, true-to-life colors and a flawless picture quality that is artifact-free during fast moving scenes. The Series 7 monitor also delivers rich sound via its built-in 2-channel dual speakers, creating an immersive gaming experience for users.

    Ideal for various entertainment scenarios, the Series 7 monitor supports Mobile High-definition Link (MHL), which allows consumers to play content stored on their mobile phone on a much larger screen -- while still charging the phone.

    The monitor on the left has quite a unique base. I wonder what we have to sacrifice for those kinds of aesthetics?

    Mounting is out the window. Durability? probably gone too, not to mention cost.
