22-inch USB monitor on its way from Samsung


— 3:11 PM on November 14, 2007

After unveiling a 19" USB monitor last month, Samsung is preparing to introduce another with a larger panel size, according to a report by Engadget. The report says Samsung's next USB display will be known as the SyncMaster 2263DX, and that it'll feature a 22" panel. One can assume the monitor has a 1680 x 1050 resolution based on this information, but Samsung has yet to announce the monitor officially, and Engadget says it doesn't know any additional specs.

The 19" USB display Samsung introduced last month, the 940UX, has a 1280 x 1024 resolution and is rated for 5ms response, 300cd/m² luminosity, and 2000:1 contrast. What makes it stand out is its embedded graphics chip and software driver, which allow the monitor to be plugged into any Windows XP PC via USB (although it does support both DVI and VGA, as well). The USB capability does add a price premium, however; the 940UX has a recommended price tag of $379.
