Irvine, CA -- Samsung, the world's number one manufacturer computer monitors, introduces the latest addition to its family of flat-panel displays with the new multimedia-enabled SyncMaster 152B. Samsung's sleek new 15" monitor is targeted to business and corporate users who require a high-end display that delivers top-notch performance. The SyncMaster 152B will be shipping in early July. Perfect for small offices, cubicles, reception areas, or any location where space is at a premium, the SyncMaster 152B incorporates built-in speakers eliminating
the need for bulky speakers that attach to a user's PC. The monitor also sports a sleek new design where the interface cables are routed through the stand instead of the back of the monitor. To further save space, the stand can be folded back and used as the wall mount bracket at a total depth of only two inches flush to the wall. With an ultra-thin one-inch panel profile and full 90° tilt, the 152B is perfect for any professional requirement.
"As the worldwide leader in flat-panel displays, Samsung is always striving to offer our customers new and innovative applications with the most advanced technologies on the market today," states Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing for Samsung's Digital Information technology Division. "The SyncMaster 152b gives business users exceptional viewing performance with a slim design that is perfect for any office location." Offered in either stylish silver and black or
all black, the space-saving and energy-efficient 152B offers a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 @ 75Hz, wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles and an ultra-fine 0.297 pixel pitch. The display produces sharp and crisp text and images with a high 450:1 contrast ratio and high brightness of 350 cd/m2. Consuming a maximum of just 31 Watts of power, the 152B is the ultimate display for any business looking to cut costs.
The SyncMaster 152B offers an optional UBS hub with 2 upstream ports and 4 downstream ports. USB simplifies hook up to desktop peripherals - such as the keyboard, mouse, joystick, printer or scanner -- and offers improved PC-to-peripheral performance. Samsung's 152B features Natural Color software which tunes up your display to ensure that the colors you see on your Samsung monitor are consistent with the original images -- from detailed graphics programs to Web site merchandise.
For easy installation and optimum configuration, the 152B has built-in Plug and Play capability that conforms to the Video Electronics Standards Association's (VESA) Display Data Channel (DDC) Type 1/2B standards. Plug and Play automatically configures the monitor with the host computer and selects the optimum resolution and refresh rates to achieve crisp detail, bright colors and razor sharp images. Samsung's 152B meets the stringent TCO '99 standards for low emissions and incorporate a power management system that complies with VESA DPMS, Energy2000 and the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star Standards for energy efficient reduced power consumption. Samsung backs all of its monitors with a three-year, parts and labor warranty
as well as toll-free technical support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and an Advanced Replacement program for hassle-free repairs.
