:. Samsung Tantus LTM 1775W HDTV LCD Monitor .:

After taking this monitor out of the box, I was impressed with what I saw. Its design is very modern and that also reflected to the technical side of the 1775W. This is one of the most versatile monitors around and this is proven once you look at the back of this unit. There are a total of 13 gold-plated inputs that will connect the 1775W to almost anything you have around the house.

It is not surprising that Samsung developed such an extensive menu system. There are a number of options that are available such as picture-in-picture (PIP), Split Screen, and many more. With PIP, you can change the size of the box, change its location, and change what input you want within the smaller screen.

With this monitor it is possible to be on the computer and watch TV at the same time with the picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. One major advantage of this feature is that it uses 0% of the CPU, while TV tuner cards tend to use about 30%. This is because the cable is connected directly to the monitor.
